    has anyone on here ever surfed Absecon Inlet in Atlantic city? That inside sandbar looks like it has the potential to have good point break lefts with minimal wind.

    I can get there in about 15 minutes on the ski!

    Yep, Florida will be getting the goods once the storm clears. Reef Road in Palm Beach County will be going off (and that's no secret. good luck finding a parking spot in the wealthy neighborhood though).
    Folks in the Northeast will have a timing issue. The approaching storm will provide plenty of washing machine conditions with the heavy Northeast winds. Once the winds go offshore you may be lucky and get a few hours in before the heavy offshore winds beat the waves down to nothing. If the offshore winds start in the dark then you will wake up to waist high waves if even that. The window of opportunity will be short my friends -- hope you have flexible work schedules or have some sick time.......and know your limits. Be safe.

    There are other big-wave spots on the East Coast - Turtles (Montauk, NY), Jenkinson's (LBI, NJ), Great Boar's (Hampton Beach, NH). And I've heard that Little Compton can also sometimes handle big surf.
    But during Bill, the waves at Ruggles were not 20', more like 10'+. Nevertheless I enjoyed the video of the NJ crew and of Garrett McNamara. And Ruggles depends on direction, like whether or not it's a SE swell. And the tide matters - at some tides (ie. other than low-tide), it can be mushy. Witness why sometimes you see jet-skis and SUPers out there. But it is a deeper spot and can handle bigger swell so that's what it's famous for. But those other breaks are also famous for their big wave surfability. Another spot is tow-in off of Tuckerman's in Newport, RI. I watched Wes and Randy Laine and two others during Hurricane Fabian. None of the above-mentioned spots are "secret" spots. Perhaps there are some secret big-wave spots. I've heard tell of a couple others.

    There are no tow in spots in rhode island near shore. Just because some douche on jet ski is nearly colliding with surfers in a few feet overhead waves doesn't mean it's a tow-in. lol Is there really a reason to ADVERTISE ANY SPOTS. I know their not secret, but do you really need to advertise them?

    definitely wouldn't call jenks a big wave spot, nor is it in LBI. inlet can definitely handle some big surf but the north wind isn't going to work well there

    Did you purposefully spread misinformation? As "motion" pointed out, Jenk's is not a big wave spot as you say, and it for sure is not even near LBI. Get with it dude!

    From time to time I have heard about a spot off the NH Cost that can break 15-20 feet. Its not in paddle distance but apparently if you know where to look you can see the breaking waves from shore. That is all I know.
