Ocean City Maryland Wave Riding

Welcome to Oceancity.com’s newest feature section.  We will be using this section to showcase different aspects of the Surfing community throughout the year from the area’s top waterman, surf photographers, forecaster, retail shops and hot spots.  Please visit us often to see the latest features and keep up to date on what’s happening in the world of wave riding in Worcester County.

When you think of the sport of surfing, bodyboarding, SUP boarding and other wave riding sports you may not think of Maryland’s coast line at first.  But what many don’t know is the Maryland coast is home to some of the best waves on the east coast for wave riders of all types and during certain times of the year can be a “world class” wave in the surfing community.

The Maryland coast has received more attention in the past few years as more pictorial documentation has slipped out to the public.  Surfers from around the world are giving our coastal more and more credit for the quality of waves.  Something typically only given to those more renown places like Hawaii and California.

As someone who has spent his career traveling those places and many others around the world, I am proud to say I grew up riding waves on Maryland’s coast and I can honestly say that when the waves are good here at home, there is nowhere in the world I would rather be.  Here is a little sample of Maryland’s little slice of heaven documented by a few of the area’s best cameramen:
