    Leslie STILL aint moving! :) :)

    Damn! Looks like waves until middle of next week! I'll believe when I see it, but keeping my fingers crossed! I'd give anythin if she just sat there fo 2 weeks. What's the longest swell event anyone can remember from a single hurricane? How many days in a row of at least waist high from the system?

    Hurrican Felix back in that magical hurricane year of '95.

    The 11 second average swell period was much better this afternoon/evening compared to the past 2 days in central Jersey. It got good before dark.

    Shot this one empty one down the beach away from the crowds before heading out. Water was tropical this evening with lots of clear 3-4" size jellies. Can't understand all the wetsuit gear being worn when the water is that warm other than to minimize rash?


    Surf averaged in the chest to shoulder high range with head high sets.

    Nice pic, brother... Can't believe I'm seeing people out in FULL suits! wow... But I'll admit I'm finally gonna put on the springer today. I'm so rashed up taking a shower is actually painful. I'm raw in places I didn't know you could get rash.

    Hate to blow up spots but...my little bro lives in Stockton and surfed last night around the AC area and tried telling me he got the best barrels of his life..was anyone down there?..bc I drove up and down Monmouth County and it honestly wasn't worth going out..this is in the PM btw, AM was pretty fun

    id like to add he never surfed Bill, Egor, and doesn't go out in the winter...so best in his life could just mean average make-able barrels for any of us

    I for one don't own a spring suit, or rash guard for that matter, so i'll be wearing a 3/2. Haven't been out since early August, if the waters the same temp i'll most likely be taking it off. Can't stand sweating.

    What part in Monmouth County? I felt like I was waiting all day for the tide turn shaping it up better but it never really did. There were waves..but walled up and funky, not many shoulders peeling off. I am chalking it up that the winter sand pumping they did messed with the sand bars, but I don't know. Yesterday I got kind of skunked.

    It's all PERSONAL. Everyone is different. I was cold with with my 3/2 after 2 hours. I'm a tropical guy. Cold and me don't mix. Yeah....yeah laugh away.
