It's so tempting to jump in early tomorrow am, especially when winds look good for western LI, but there's gotta be some serious crap lounging in the water. I've felt sick a few times after surfing western/central LI after a heavy rain, but I'd boot and rally and be fine in a few hours. But this is different.
I guess you’ve got to ask yourself one question, "Do I feel lucky?"
meh... I guess it's not worth it right now... hopefully in another week or two we all will be back in the water and the quality will no longer be in question.
i paddled out two days after sandy and it was really worth it besides dodging a few pieces of wood in the lineup and praying u didnt hit anything sharp when u fell it wasnt that bad stick to a more shorebreaky wave waves in nj are rare so why pass it up. just know where ur surfing and whats in the water a kid ripped his arm up in seaside on the roller coaster so id keep away from breaks where u know a dock or pier usto be
it's the quality of the water I'm really worried about... where I live a sewage plant had to dump millions of gallons of raw sewage in the water during sandy to keep it from overloading... that sewage is floating around in the ocean and all signs point to it hasn't fully cleared out yet.
