    i'm newish to the northeast and have to say i've been amazed at the wave quality between jerz and long island. certainly it lacks the consistency of the west coast but last hurricane season produced some of the best waves i've ever surfed and actually scared me a little after getting pitched on my head a few times.

    I don't live on the Right Coast, but I've been there several times and stayed for several months at a time. What I do know is, I've been surprised by the quality of Eastern surf. True, it's not nearly as consistent as the West Coast, but when it all comes together it really is decent surf.

    I also know that like anywhere else, the best surf occurs during the cold winter months. That being said, I can GUARANTEE that no matter how good or consistent the surf is, the rest of the world is not going to beat down the doors to sample Jersey's Best (not even that popular little jetty in Monmouth Co., wink wink). Why? Because it is so **** COLD, along with the fact that most traveling surfers usually like things like reefs and points, which tend to be pretty rare until you go north of LBI. Trust me, I have property in Washington state near the Canadian border, and I can't get one single California buddy to taste the fruits up there....p u s s i e s.

    And you know what? I like it that way.

    As far as OCMD goes, I've already seen the photos in Surfline as well. Those guys are sitting on a little gold mine, and it's just a matter of time when the rest of the U.S. finds out. My friends couldn't believe I was scoring so well in Maryland, of all places.

    One of the reasons NJ surf is getting so much more attention is that advances in digital photography have made it easier to capture - and beam to the world - that period of .5 seconds when the guy is in the barrel before it closes out on his head.

    Does anyone know if the guy made it on that crazy giant jersey barrel in the article? If he made that, he is the fu*(*ing man, because that was a giant, top to bottom shorebreak meatball. If he was actually getting spit out, that is some heavy, heavy sh**!

    Sh**, he still has balls for pulling into a closeout like that. But it does take a little sparkle from the shot if he was just getting swallowed up right after the photo. That was a mean looking barrel.

    a lot of those photos by Matt Lusk were from December.

    This was a terrible surfing winter for the Mid Atlantic and Northeast.... One of the worst I can recall. If you compose photos from 4 month period and say it was epic...then sure...
    I guess the Surfline editor isn't quite in touch.
