Surf and Rough Water Weekend – Cape Charles, VA

August 20, 2021 @ 8:00 am - August 22, 2021 @ 5:00 pm EDT


Surf and Rough Water Weekend
August 20 – 22 (Fri – Sun)
Location: Cape Charles, VA
Instructor: Jeff Atkins
Cost: $295 + housing
Join Jeff for three days of fun and skill development on the Virginia Eastern Shore. This class will involve one day of
rough/open water training and two days of surfing.
The rough water day will be at Smith Island off Wise Point (near Kiptopeke). We’ll deal with the outrageous current that
whips around the tip of Smith and the incredible bouncy water that it generates right at the tip. And, the wave train
beckons! The class will include strategies for dealing with the various confused water features found in the area and ways
of grappling with issues that arise as a result of things going awry. Figure on some incident management in rough water,
including rescues, towing, back-deck carries, etc.
The two days of surfing will include at least one at Metompkin Inlet and maybe one at Smith Island. If it seems like the
surf at Smith isn’t working, both surfing days will be at Metompkin.
