As a surf destination, Virginia Beach is primarily known as a pit stop on certain surf comp circuits, a party detour for Outer-Banks-bound road trips, and a generally underfed collection of sandbanks, jetties, and piers. For locals, however, it’s a wavescape that has captured and held their attention for more than 100 years, with generational dynasties shaped by every ounce of energy they can wring from the Atlantic. Photographer, writer, and Vah Beach native Stewart Ferebee explores a century of history in this East Coast stronghold.
