seaside nj gets bad in the summer because it gets so crowded.
i never surf there because i always get people telling me to piss out because they live there and i dont, god forbid i live a few miles away in normandy beach. so i say screw them and surf up the street from my house. waves arent so top notch but i have a blast and there is never more then 4 people in a line up
haha those bastards

I surf there all winter and the water is clean and the crowd isn't an issue as long as you can surf well. I think localism is barbaric and caveman like that is reserved for not too intellegent ra-ra-ra types. Skill is the ultimate decider. The better you are the more waves you get. If some kid is surfing better than you and is getting more waves and instead of learning how to surf better you just pis and moan who is the idiot? Personally I've only witnessed a few minor localism events done to others and have never instigated one.
Conljw.. thats why you actually HAVE to get up in the morning.. at 630 with me and vin in the summer.. when its still foggy out.. its glassy and empty. Theres no crowd.. yeah but normandy with you isnt bad.. haha mostly laughs and good times.
