I've never been up your way, is there good surfing up there during the summer months?

haha, just get some floor mats, It'll still get dirty but you can convince yourself it doesn't get too bad because of them :-P
if you drive on the beach much i suggest stopping by a car wash afterwards and hosing off the underside and the engine bay, good to get that salt off and knock any sand out of moving bits. just dont pressure wash the crap out of it!
surfing is mediocre but its all I've got so its good enough for me. It used to be pretty decent at Indian River Inlet but they dredged it so the break is not really there any more.... plus they apparently stirred up some algae or something which is giving people ear infections which surf there.... i can't vouch for that, just heard it from the guys at one of the local surf shops.
if you catch the days right before or after a hurricane you can get some decent surf but you're still dealing with a short period and a quick break.
...but I'm no expert, only been surfing for 2~3 years now. have fun!
oh yeah, by the way, water is 45 degrees now, we only lasted 30 min before we called it quits, will come back once its 50 or more!
