    75 Degree Water in Monmouth County today

    Pssssst. Yeah right. We all know that S. swells bring in cold ass water. But, shouldn't the reports reflect that? I mean it's not rocket science. But, 75 degrees comon? It was like 10 degrees colder then that and that's being generous. Felt more like 60. Feet got slightly numb. I can deal with the on/off reports since they are a challenge to predict. But a current water temp shouldn't be a problem. Water temp will either make or break your session if you are not prepared for it.

    Lesson learned...... bring your wetsuit all the time.

    eh the buoys are farther out so they may not get affected by upwelling (or the whatever process that makes it cold) as much

    Yeah that cold water is right along the shore. The water further out is way warmer. You can even feel as you paddle out, the further you go the warmer it gets.
