How are the waves you are asking?
Well, it is not the West Coast but it is not the Gulf either. So they are not too high and not too low, I would call it "just right". The locals consider The Chautauqua the best surfing spot around. There is a Surf shop, Pit Surf Shop, at the end of the street. They have a live webcam at our house so the locals can stay in touch with the surf. CLICK HERE to see it. Sorry it loads a little slow and is sometimes directed south to the Drive Section of the beach (there are no cars in front of The Chautauqua or The Seaside Cottages) but it is fun to watch.
You can rent Surf board or take lessons from them but you can have loads of fun with the boogie boards & floats we provide at no charge. The surf shop also rent Bikes, Ocean kayaks and the NEW PADDLE BOARD you stand on! There is a shop a few doors down that rents Segways. And don'g forget we are right next to the INTRACOASTAL and you can rent boats or canoes to explore. We saw Porposes last time we rented a pontoon boat but my client saiid he saw them in the ocean when he was PADDLE BOARDING. Said it made his trip!
