Are you kidding? Harrisonburg? Thats in the mountains, better buy a snowboard! Its gonna take you 4-5 hours to get to Va Beach and that place has crap for waves. Harrisonburg to Dc, about 2-3 hours, then tack on another 2-3 to get to Ocean City, Maryland for some decent beach break if you get lucky.

Yo, JMU is in the mountains and it will take a decent drive to get to any beaches from there.  But, that doesn't mean that it's not possible and that people don't make the drive.

Va Beach is a little less than a 4 hour drive, and the closest part of the OBX (Nags Head) is another hour south from there.  Then it's another hour south to get to Cape Hatteras Light House which is arguably one of the best surf spots on the entire East Coast.

My recommendation, find some fellow surfers at JMU and start up a Surf Club.  Or, contact the UVa Surf Club and tell them that you want in on the email list.  I believe the current "pres" of that club is Tim Eckard and you can e-mail him for more info on anything VA surf related at (tae4b@virginia.edu).

Live the dream.

Doesn't anybody remember the Stones lament about Va'- 'got to scrape the shit right off a yo shoes'- There's the pier with 1-3' closeouts (although Cape Charles can imitate a credible  'Fort Point' left smacking into tunnel pilings.  Stick to blue crabs and oysters!

Now that i lost my Senate seat because my Mason-Dixon redneck(and noose in my office) made me say stupid, I can go surfing all day at Virginia Beach Pier- it's white, safe, and never gets bigger than 2'. Vote for me in Surfer's Poll.

Tommy, can ya here me? If Virginia had waves, there would be a mass migration to the shoreline, all the tabacky farmers would be unemployed, and the state would crumble!

Tom Tom club, we won't get fooled again- Va' beach is as straight as Cheney's shotgun blast (in the face), no points and Hatterass gets torn apart every time we send a Noreastah' down there (didn't they have to move the 'Lighthouse'?). I'm sorry for my elitism, but keep the nitrate-soaked toxic hams and squirrel stew and world of 3 second close-outs!
