Does anyone sometimes think New Jersey is overrated?
No offense to Jersey, I've expirienced some great days down there, and I know how good it gets, but I keep seeing these features on Surfline and the most popular East Coast photos on MSW mostly of NJ. Maybe there are just more great surf photogaphers than up north?
i have a theory on jersey. ive surfed there for much of my life cause i gotta lotta friends on LBI. It gets good. it was better before renourishment projects. havent surfed it post sandy. anyway none of this is my theory.
anyone who ever has driven through jersey knows you get stuck in traffic on both the delaware and new york state lines. like ALOT of traffic. so much so that i would venture to say that most people who live in jersey are trapped because they know if they ever tried to leave they would be stuck in traffic for at least the better half of their grimy post industrial lives. This prompts most people who are trapped there to stay. However, when the day finally comes for a jerseyite (?) to leave the nest, by the time they get through all that traffic they have so much pent up fist pumping, and four loko chugging suppressed away in their souls that they proceed to **** all over everyone elses state, fist pumping their money into our tourist economies, and throwing trash everywhere and generally participating in a lot of yoloing and dubstepping. this is especially bad for us located in the southern states, such as north carolina.
again just a theory, but i have found it a proven tried and true one.
