    But anyways, are you stating that RI is more consistent than Jersey? Because it most certainly is not. Actually RI is the least consistent state in the mid-Atlantic and North East.

    I'm not bagging on RI, dude. Let me just make that point. "The Dock" is an interesting spot. Sid Abruzzi's delusions of granduer are also interesting.
    Jersey can catch South swell, not SW. Bro....A SW wind blows over land in jersey. How exactly is that swell going to hit jersey? You need a long fetch. If a frontal system dips passes offshore in the Alantic, the winds are pushing waves SW which is AWAY from Jersey. Not towards it. Look at the SW fetch available to RI on a map. Hundreds of miles. SW is the prevailing wind direction most of summer and except for a hurricane that's what you're counting on. Strong frontal systems break the brutal flat spell and can deliver chest to head high swells if their strong enough

    RI has more consistent waves due to that AND due to the fact that it can handle long period ground swell better and most importantly the W/SW/ AND northerly winds are offshore at spots in RI, unlike Jersey. That equal more quality consistent days just based on winds alone! A Northeast wind is onshore in Jersey, not so in many spots in RI. There's really no comparison.

    I've surfed NJ, NY, OBX, FL (Space Coast & Gulf), and Maine. My personal experience is they all get good but OBX gets more gooder

    I think NJ hold its own on the east coast for both consistancy and size. I have said this to many people I've surfed with in Cali - a NJ hurricane swell can be better than just about anywhere in the lower 48 if you get it good. September in Jersey can be just as consistant as so cal. But NJ has the warmer water...I love that 75 degree water in september when the hurricanes start moving in. There is something really awesome about that time of year. Everyone is NJ s so psyched to get a good hurricane swell, people are stoked all day, man I am smiling while typing this. I love that time of year. Its the only time of year I can say I've got one up on the so cal crew. And no one but an east coast surfer can feel that sense of appreciation. I bet I made at least a few of you smile too...cause you know what I am talking about.

    Exactly 1/2 of this statement is true. Full of psychoactive substances? I bet you brought those down from jersey, because drugs are scarce and overpriced in the OBX and law enforcement is THROUGH THE ROOF. So, unless your idea of psychoactive and spiritual is the 30 beach road "Caribbean / Jamaican yah mon" bar's, no. I just don't get it. Carolina has so much of it's own culture, like Nascar and BBQ.

    OMG, SW winds in my neck of Jersey blow South.

    Dude where are these SW swells you speak of? Wouldn't they be south of RI and right at Jersey's front door. Dude, we get every swell you guys get and more. Are you sure you aren't on the west coast?

    We need a long fetch? What do you mean by that? Aww man, don't be throwing out " surfin predictin' " terms on me without knowing what you are talking aboot. Dude I spent 25 years watching Bill Keenely on The Weather Channel. I don't need surf forecasting websites to know which way the wind blows. Didn't Bob Dylan say that? And I know how waves are geberated on the whole east coast.

    So when a low pushes off the east coast it pushes a SW swell into RI and the rest of the east coast is flat ? You'll have to explain that one, ese.

    Yes, SW winds and Second Light !!

    Dude, if you think RI is more consitent than New Jersey than you have absolutely no idea of what you speak.

    Oh I have a real easy solution to the RI vs NJ consistency battle.........

    RI people provide a website with a surf cam.......

    For NJ go to heritagesurf.com and check out there cam. OC isn't even the most consistent, but I'll give you guys a shot !

    Ok compare the daily surf for the next month...........
