That's why we drove to obx on Friday morning. The sandbars in md are all wacked out from all this east wind.Quote:

I think I speak for most njersians as we seen a weeklong swell over head high and got nothing but stormy seas and washing machines while the obx and ny got great barrels.i stopped by the beach every day since Thursday checkin out the winds,first spot all messy mushy closeout,drive down the seawall and every American flag is blowing easterly towards the houses so I knew yup onshore everywhere
Anyone on here catch Mase last Wed. afternoon? About 50-70 guys in the lineup @ one point.
Monmouth cty NJ was just a mess-victory at sea. Got fed up so I made the haul to LI for some...pitting.. BTW, I know guys who know that guy in So Cal and they said he totally made up that surfer speak for the news crew-pretty funny.
Outside of OBX I think some of you cats are exaggerating. Pitted? Surfed the whole swell at Long Beach and Rockaway and didn't see anybody pull into a single barrel. Was a nice swell but nothing over about shoulder high.
I surfed the whole swell at long beach, guys weren't getting shacked on every wave, it was not a barrel-fest but there were barrels to be had out there. More so on Thursday and Friday. Those two days also had sets in the head high range. It's long island, no one was getting barrels like Kelly did at cloudbreak obviously. Iv seen guys pull in at long beach on chest high waves. It dosn't need to be over head for it to happen, it just happens more often
