The second part of our swell recap tips a cap to how fortunate we are to call our stretch of coast home. Sure, Virginia surfers will always be wave-deprived compared to their Outer Banks brethren. As a result, the search for a day of fun surf along the Outer Banks has become a fundamental aspect of Virginia Beach surf culture. Though, its a journey that should always be treated with respect for local surfers and the local environment alike. If the virtue of respect is placed as the highest priority, there’s no doubt that good vibes will spread infectiously across most any lineup. After all, we’re all seeking the same connection to nature — and to have an awesome time in the ocean. From city hustle to island time, we’re blessed indeed to call these shores home.
