    Hey some of us northerners, myself included, love chilly air and water temps...I think fall in New England is the best weather one could experience, hands down, but that's just my opinion. I also don't think the water's "cold" till it hits about 45, and it's a fair trade off for lack of crowds. I also avoid NYC like the plague, w/ the exception of the occassional museum trip, it makes me nervous down there, just too many ppl not enough space. Just a random northern perspective, I'll let you guys get back to hating each other.

    a kook from tampa lecturing people on surfing. you seriously can't make this crap up. LOL
    new york city?!...yeah, that's one of the world's premiere surf destinations. Don't understand what you get out of it, but your sounding like a huge troll and solidifying the northeast guido stereotype. Stay in jersey - you don't fit in in FL and never will

    btw, I moved to the west coast, but I loved FL when I was there. I've also surfed most coasts of oahu, maui, main mex, baja and costa rica, so I can say with exp that east florida is not that bad in the grand scheme of things. Every place has it's compromise

    Seldom Seen, I love the NE, my Dad is from Gloucester MA, my step-mom is from Pittsburg PA, and I still have relatives in Saugus MA and areas of PA. I agree that it can be beautiful in some areas. But NYC??? I don't blame you for avoiding it like the plague.

    I just had to throw that out there, especially on our first hot day up here, already thinking of fall..from a non-biased(at least in terms of this discussion) northern perspective.

    i think nyc is the best place to live for an east coast surfer. great job market, easily get to jerz or long island depending on the wind. we are a catchers mit for just about every atlantic storm that heads north and west and almost always get offshore winds after it passes us by.. we wear trunks late june through october and due to the jetstream, the winter's aren't nearly as bad as other northern states and we get these things called seasons which are quite pleasant really. unlike the 9 month summer you get down south.. plus, it's the world's greatest city with everything you could ever want nearby. i regularly surf surprisingly good surf then take public transportation back to the city where i eat at the world's best restaurants and look at the world's greatest eye candy.

    i'm not here brag or to bag on florida, i'm here to bag on floridians who think they live in some kind of premier surf destination. here's a newsflash, the only people who travel to east florida for waves are people from west florida so please get over yourselves. as a fellow floridian, you are embarrassing the rest of us..

    I agree about the weather, it might get cold up here and we deal with our share of humidity, but it gets unbearably hot in Florida for a couple months. We get a nice range of temperatures throughout the year. Plus, when it's cold it keeps the crowds down.

    Personally, I don't see what the big deal with Jersey or Florida is. Delaware is by far the best surfing destination on the east coast, with our miles of destroyed beach breaks...We have such a variety of waves... beach breaks, a point break, beach breaks, beach breaks....

    All jokes aside, I will say the day after Tropical Storm Ernesto passed by us, we had some world class waves at North Side IRI, I wish i could find somebody who snapped some shots of that day. I saw a video of Jersey from the same day and it didn't even compare.
