SURFING IN VIRGINIA BEACH

Surfing in Virginia Beach is the foundation of the resort city. In fact it is the home to the longest-running surf contest in the world. The East Coast Surfing Championships held in August every year. Sure they have bigger waves in Hawaii, but you’ll have just as much fun here and we’re a LOT closer!Surf Shops are located conveniently throughout the city and especially down at the oceanfront. Get all that you need for your day surfing and get down to the beach and catch that wave.

Surfing Spots in Virginia Beach

1st Street Jetty

The 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.

Virginia Beach Pier

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.

Croatan

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.
