Early AM the wind was tolerable. By 9am it was howling 20mph. By noon ripping at 30+mph gusts. Spent a lot of time getting held up the face by the wind... didn't see a whole lot of people catching much of anything today, but when you were lucky enough to get into one you got shacked. There were some periods where it backed off and let a few waves through, but was mostly annoying. Would have been insane without the howling offshores.
Glad to hear some agreement that this was heavy for a head high forecast.
I was out for about 20 minutes at 9am some place between Asbury and Long Branch with dark sand and it was too much for my ability. I spoke with somebody on the beach who called it small. I thought I'd lost my senses.
Was out in Spring Lake today and got so many barrels - felt like I doubled my tally of barrel rides for the year Drove north through Belmar afterwards and was so stoked to see almost every jetty going off with others getting shacked! What a way to end the year.
i got this series today, i dont know who it is, but a sweet barrel, it was southside of casino pier today, i believe it goes bottom to top in order. bummed i didnt catch the rest of the wave[IMG][/IMG]
