NJ .vs. NY
It's probably been done before, but i wanna here what you guys have to say. NJ .vs. NY. GO.
Personally, i've surfed both a good amount and i'd have to say Jersey takes it just cause it gets a wider array of swells with a better selection of breaks plus more powerful, heavier breaks.
this has been done before in length but my you have just opened pandora's box my friend. good luck managing this thread. o and H20, before you post it, you really have to stop with the belmar stuff, we got it after the 38348934343th hash tag.
NY is lefts. NJ is rights. NY ropes gentle slopes. NJ heaves thumping barrels.
Yeah, definitely agree DIRTY J is way better. The beach beaks out east on LI never break, let alone get heavy.
Here's a few more for ya:

Dude! Everyone knows Belmar is the best wave on the east coast!
Better than Deal? Not possible!

so as you can see, its never better in NY, its only almost as good but usually blown out while jersey is usually almost always seeing better conditions.
West wind - NJ.
N/NW wind - NY.
Simple as that
edit: someone had also mentioned something about the wave itself. I've consistently found NJ to be steeper, heavier and more critical compared to NY which tends to be a bit more forgiving. that being said, some spots far east absolutely drain...
