In Response To: Re: East Beach Surfing ?? ()

: I would recomend against surfing a long boat at East Beach. When
: there is good swell the wave is essentially a fast steep beach
: break that breaks in very shallow water and in most cases will
: close out. If board surfers are present your running a big risk
: of injuring someone with your long boat. That being said I have
: surfed my long boat there with nobody else out except a few
: paddling friends. If you want to surf a long boat you would be
: better off at the tidal races , Napatree, Narrow River where you
: do not have the crowds (board surfers, swimmers etc.) Remember
: it is not a good idea to surf a long boat at popular breaks
: unless the place is void of other surfers. Long boats do not
: have the manuverability to negotiate a really crowded lineup and
: in many cases will broach. I don't know your skill level in surf
: so I might suggest hooking up with someone who is willing to
: show you the ropes.
