    normally it's consistently flat. small is an improvement. & as mr. swellinfo said, the swell we've had has been above average for the month.

    you know what, i would be willing to bet that you could tie the 2 together. pumped in sand tends to be more coarse than the natural sand & thus unstable, so it'll be moved around easier, creating weak spots along the beach for water to punch through & create a rip.
    good spot, uncle!

    I call it 'Bridge Syndrome'. People cross the bridge into a beach town and all common sense goes out the window.

    two things:

    Minorities can't swim

    Minorities show up after the gaurds are off duty.



    If you don't believe me go down to the beach tonight after 5pm. it's ethnic swim in the atlantic. 98% of the drowning victims are minorities.

    If you can't swim stay home.

    there's also the unfortunately high likelihood that at least some of the victims were actually quite strong swimmers...in the pool. i can't tell you the number of times that i pulled "good" or "strong" lap swimmers out of rips in my 10 years as a guard. people just don't get that all water is not created equal. flat water/pool swimming is nothing at all like open water/rough water swimming.
    Never turn your back on the ocean? Your a grade A f*ggot.

    Most of Monmouth County turns into Essex county after 5pm. It's one thing if you're trying to save the few $$ on buying a couple of badges, but some of these people are downright meatheads...stay on the sand. Last year I had to stop 6 black kids from trying to pull the lifeguard boat into the water after hours. They had the thing almost in the water and the younger kids (maybe 7-9 years old) were already in the boat ready to set sail. The older guys doing the pushing stared at me like I was the f'n idiot for telling them not to do it. Savages. With the amount of publicity all these drownings are getting, you'd think these dumb bastards would get it through their heads that the ocean will eat you if you can't swim. My buddy pulled 3 people out of the water last night in AP.....one guy was almost all the way under. Could've been another to add to the list if he didn't happen to be in the water. Now I'm reading in the APP that they're looking to ban swimming after 5pm due to yesterdays casualties. Good luck with that.
