About Wildwood

The lefts at Rambler Road can really lineup and freight train on a proper northeast swell. It isn't ridden that often, as it needs a powerful long period swell to show, and a stiff north wind for it to be makeable. It draws a crowd when it occasionally gets good, mostly because you can see the break as you drive by. The lineup consists of experienced locals, along with out-of-towners who haven't forgotten how good it was the last time they caught it.
