On Thanksgiving day we still had some strong swell with head high breaks. The bad part is was 20 degrees with a strong off shore wind (25mph). If you could bear it, you would have caught some amazing waves. You just needed to be at the right spot, otherwise it was the ususal jersey close out sale.
Surfline has a great feature of the east coast's Thanksgiving swell. It's a good read with great photography and a few videos.
UPDATE: Seems thesurfersview.com has put up a ton of photos and videos. It's pretty epic.
