Its common knowledge its a loser state all the way around.Loved the Sopranos however.
Mike Gleason, Sam Hammer, Clay Pollioni, yeah losers. Ive surfed in NJ my whole life except during 8 years in the marine corps and when I wasn't overseas I was stationed in so cal. Nj isn't as consistent as so cal no doubt. But when its good its really hollow and powerful. If you don't like NJ waves than stop surfing there. Good day sir.
if you base your opinion on surfline hype...
but,we get waves,sometimes they're pretty good,we have good breaks,not as crowded as cal,oz,hi,it's cold 5 months,it gets flat like most everywhere,and it's home to a lot of us who are satisfied,or we'd move,as some do,and from cape may up to the hook it's like 10 different places with 10 different kinds of breaks and 10 different kinds of surfers,plus a lot of kooks flocking to surfline hype breaks,like most anywhere.this past saturday it was as good up my street all day as anywhere in the world
NJ has some good waves for the EC, but the people are what make it unbearable for me. Half my family is from south jersey, and every time I visit I have a bad time. No matter where you go, everyone seems angry and rude. It's like their world is more important than everyone around them, and they have no problem showing it. Aside from that, most of the beaches from Cape May up seem to be overcrowded from spring to fall. This is not NJ bashing, just NJ people bashing. The south may not have the best waves, but the people are very laid back and friendly. We do have our share of crazy backwoods hicks, but most of the population is rather normal. I also enjoy 69F water temps in April. I hate the cold!
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 agree you should write a letter of complaint to Surfline and MSW.
