    Make it Rain

    For those who live monmouth county..

    how long, if at all, will you wait before paddling out after the rain we had this afternoon?

    keep in mind that it hasnt rained in a while..

    I have never waited to go in after ... I'm sure I will pay for this one day. But if there's waves I am going in

    Never waited either, just wondering how some people feel about it since reading some warnings...

    i have never waited due to the rain. if the run-off is that bad, i just keep my head above the water, and try to always keep water from getting up my nose. if I get out and have a head full of water...i netti-pot it out.

    Some of the best surf has been right after a heavy storm.

    I'm thinking that it would take some time for all the run-off to mix into the ocean, the worst of it might be the next day or hours later.

    I went in after work yesterday, water was dirt... just didn't fall...

    LOL, Jersey water is suspect no matter what. I always have reservations about water that never turns blue and states that have a concentration of their heavy industry located in wetlands and bays.

    you could get Hepatitis, some sort of stomach parasitic bug that keeps you on the bowl for a day or so, a very painful ear infection that lasts a few days, or absolutely nothing. I wouldn't stay out of the water if it was good. Drink a lot of water, do the neti pot thing, take your vitamins.

    Surfing in the rain isn't a big deal but you should wait for 20-30 minutes if you hear thunder or see lightning.
