Cold wind grooming solid Jersey surf. Air temp was 15 degrees before the wind chill factor. Video Shot by Adam Tormollan and Kevin Doherty.

Small knee cap high surf but very clean. Corolla has a very light wind and an outgoing tide. The sun is out, so wind chill is very minimal. You might wait a till about 12:30/1:00 so that the tide goes out: GARY, COROLLA SURF SHOP
The good news is that the wind has backed off despite the fact that wind direction is out of the East-northeast. Wave height is around thigh to waist with an outgoing tide. Corolla has an air and water temp at 44-45 degrees Fahrenheit. You will definitely need a 4/3mm, boots, gloves and a hood. GARY, COROLLA SURF SHOP
Sunday’s surf is still defined by an on-shore wind. Wave height is at least waist high but surface conditions are choppy. Air temps are in the mid 40’s backed by a 17 mph wind. Win chill feels like a high 30 degrees. The result is choppy surf with a wind chill: GARY, COROLLA SURF SHOP
