48th Street Surf Guide

48th Street in Delaware is an exposed beach/Jetty break that usually has waves and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the west. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Best around low tide when the tide is rising. Likely to be crowded if working. Watch out for dangerous rips.
