    I have been on the go now for for 17 hours, a full tank of diesel has been used, I am cold to my very core, I met the soft rocks & EVERYTHING hurts but I have the biggest shit eating grin on my face.

    On Friday made a 1 1/2 hour drive to Sandy hook ( faces east) only to find a diminishing swell and a 18+mph wind which was completely ruining the surf. A buddy of mine who knows Jersey well suggested we drive an additional hour South to Long Beach Island which faces a bit more South. While it was still windy the conditions were much better!

    Nice! Glad you scored. It pays to know the subtle differences in the shoreline angles here and how they interact with swell directions.

    nah my buddy is Robbie Nelson, he works as a surf coach in NY and NJ. I try to surf with him and his clients when i can because he is just a great guy and very knowledgeable about everything surf related. He also usually pulls up to a break with a whole quiver of boards in his van. I was actually riding one of his boards that friday which was a an 8'6" board with 3 1/2 inch rails shaped by Mahady Surfboards. It caught anythings and the narrow nose worked well in the strong offshore wind.

    he is great, does not run a surf camp. Works year round. This is his busiest time of year. He is in the water for every swell event!

    What a great post. That last sunset picture is amazing. What's water temp? Today for me first in about 5 days, missed the swell we had but captured some real nuggets today with a dropping water temp of 62. Coming to Ireland with a mat would be incredible. What are you riding?
