Surfing Spots in Virginia Beach
1st Street Jetty is one of the main surf spots at the beach. The jetty makes for a natural reef which help waves build up for some of the best surfing on the East, especially with the right swell and wind conditions. Another place you will see a lot of surf action is on both the South and North ends of The Virginia Beach Pier. And just like the jetty the pier also acts as a natural reef enabling waves to curl up for fun surf sessions. Over the Rudee Inlet Bridge you can find a more private surfing spot on the beaches of Croatan. Although the local’s would much rather I keep that a secret Croatan gives visitors more of that private beach feeling with a little more space to yourself.
