I haven't been surfing very long, but I can agree, this has been the best winter surf New Jersey has had in my limited surf-lifetime. Surfline did another great special on what NJ had to offer and will hopefully continue for the future. You would think this was northern Cali, but I'm proud to say it's New Jersey.
So the east coast had hurricane Bertha pass off shore, bring a nice summer swell this august. Unfortunately the waves were a bit too fast and got up to head high. If you had the skills it was epic. For the rest of us little folk, it was just practice. Here's a little clip I made before I went in. The waves eventually got up to about chest to head.
Another great swell passed New Jersey in mid october. While I wasn't personaly about to surf the actual weekend it came on. I did get a chance to enjoy it the day before. It was impressive and I haven't seen so many consistent barrels since the winter. Before I jumped in I was able to take a quick video of a couple surfers getting shacked. Jersey surfing is slowly waking up to the winter swells. Lets see what the future holds.
