If you really look at that pic it's not that bad. Only one real drop in.
There's a guy going left. A guy behind him that's obviously not going to make it.
A guy going right and a douche burning him... And a SUP that looks to be in the way, but plenty of room to go around him...
I haven't surfed matunuck or pj in forever since I'm back in jersey but matunuck was always real chill is long is you stayed out of the old lb locals way, i've seen then gang up on people, at PJ i've encountered a few **** heads but nothing major. I miss RI i loved living up there.
I have just never experienced that at Matunuck. Every time I've been there -- which, in the last two years since I moved to RI, have been a bunch -- folks have been cool. People take turns, and when someone else paddles for the same wave as me, we agree who goes left and who goes right (not usually hard to figure out).
Except on the biggest swells I've always found that folks at PJ spread way out, and cluster by their types of preferred waves, with the best surfers moving way south around the point closer to the big rock, and with waves breaking farther out. I don't head out there.
God i love both those spots. Localism and general deuchery is way lower than down in the south here.
