Out west anyone can go in anytime. That's why there's lifeguards
    Really good point. If you don't want waves, go swim in a lake! They really go overboard on that. They don't act like that in southern CA. There's always at least a waist high swell in the water. They could never do that.

    Please, first learn to surf. Then, you can comment on a surf forum. Hopefully that pic isn't of you. So many people act like they can surf. Just look at this guy's avatar. Nice stance and ripping on that knee higher, lol

    VA is probably the worst surf state and South Carolina isn't that great too . Tons of surfers but there are only 3 days the entire year of surf which are probably about waist high. I surf waist high slop and call myself a shredder. Comparing surf in VA to NJ is like comparing NJ to Cali/Hawaii.

    I think surfline can overhype Jersey but it's probably the best on the East Coast. RI and New England have points but they need some size to make them worth it. I'm willing to bet that you surf far less up there than in Jersey. When it's big up there you can get those soft point takeoffs which beginners like. I like those rippable waves on some days but I wouldn't trade barrels for it.

    from what i have witnessed the barrels seem good at times, but rides in general look short. waves in rhode island i would say are probably some of the nicest on the entire east coast (carolinas waves look like best barrels). RI lines up for long rides and is really legit when it breaks. as far as the state, like many, NJ was very corrupt, but at least they got a great governor who doesnt put up with a lot of that BS and has some serious balls, so thats good.

    don't know whats more amazing, your ability to anatomically misjudge a wave by 3 or so feet, or your ability to judge the entirety of someones surfing ability from a blurry thumbnail photo from a year or so ago. Considering you don't even have any photos posted i can safely say your a kook, and coming from a kook your comment really holds no weight.

    Don't worry, maybe it was a three footer. I judged by your body on the wave genius. I can tell everything just from that photo. Call me a kook, lol. I'm confident in my surfing ability and I know how I surf. I was surfing before you were born. If you are ever in the area, shoot me a pm. We can go surfing and I can give you some tips. Hint - look at your arm placement.

    Plenty of barrels in R.I. if you know where to look, plus way more southern exposure than NJ...not getting into what's better when and where, but it's not just mushy points up north...certain reefs(cobblestone) can get heavy and there are legit slabs in R.I. and scattered about other parts of New England. And quality beachbreaks.

    It all depends. I know it gets good, real good up there when there is size. It also holds very large size swell where it's closing out on beachbreaks. The problem is the number of surfable days there compared to NJ. Look at the last 5 years and see which place had the better waves and more consistent waves.
