    Surfing after Sandy

    What are people's opinion on when it will be "okay" to surf again? (not just from a moral perspective, but also chemicals, ocean water debris, beach access)

    i surfed at home (ocnj) for the first time post-storm this past thursday. it felt weird, like i shouldn't be doing what i was doing. probably the first (& hopefully only) time i've felt guilty going surfing, but i definitely needed it after a solid week of recovery/clean up work.

    I don't think you should have felt guilty at all man. Surfing in your hometown after a week of cleanup and recovery? If anything you DESERVED to be out catch some nice waves and shredding. I can only imagine how much damage was done up there, and what people are going through. If I were a millionaire, I'd donate as much time and money as possible to helping the cause - but if it's good surf - I'm in the water.

    I'm going to be in LI for Thanksgiving ... do you think there would there be any water quality issues if I went as far east as Southampton or even Montauk?

    You should be okay that far east, I was out around Mastic and the water was clean and no debris

    This is the first time I can ever remember feeling guilty about checking my spots. The devastating affects of this storm are everywhere.

    I know what you mean, but after all it is nature...brings this to thought, think about all the other places in the world that go through turmoil like this or greater...we hear about it on the news for a week then its out of our lives. Like Japan or Haiti or even New Orleans... when actually there is a lot of distress still going on it those areas a long time after the disaster occurs. Now it is different, because it is here and we see it everywhere... these are difficult times my friends, not for the North East but the whole world. Famine, genocide, natural disasters in one place after another, the media keeps things under wraps pretty well though... here come the holidays!!! Sandy will be pretty obsolete once the thanksgiving-black friday-cyber monday-christmas deals/stories return.

    Obsolete? On behalf of myself and many others, F*ck You! Do you really think the holidays are going to make us forget that we can't go home? A f*cking turkey is supposed to make us forget all our sh*t is trashed? The only thing distracting me from this disaster is last year’s holiday disaster where I lost three close family members between Thanks Giving day and New Year. So, F*ck You some more. Enjoy your sales dueshbag.
