Looks like i'm late to the party, good thread, but to be honest I think the decision is obvious. I'll be labeled a homer If I went all out and defended my home state putting up links to pics, videos etc., which I most certainly could do, but don't have the time while at work, if you really care you could do some youtube and google work on your own and find out for yourself, or live here for the 30+ years like I have.... sooo instead, i'll just say this place sux, you don't want to come here, nothing but mushburgers and rednecks, Paddington you nailed it my man, spot on, you sound like someone who grew up in FL and knows what time it is... You must know more than us Floridians. Hell, you might as well throw out that one lame quote again for a 4th time, sh*t, i'll do it for you... "Florida's got the oranges, but Jerzy's got the juice", did I get that right there Paddington? For F sakes that's one of the lamest quotes i've ever seen, you aren't the 1st to quote it either, so don't get your feelings hurt. Bottom line is Florida sux, it really does.

reef road fl insane. those of maryland are crazy though.
By the way, yes, yes I do know more than people in Florida. I've seen many episodes of COPS and I'm pretty sure I know more than the criminals and the cops. Therefore, judging from that spectrum, I can deduce that I know more than pretty much anybody from Florida.
"Florida's got the oranges, but Jersey's got the juice."
Ha, fifth time's the charm. Oh, I won't get upset at your dislike of that quote because I didn't coin it. A Floridian did.
See even youse guys' quotes suck, not just your waves......Actually I never said anything aboot "rednecks and mushburgers." So I'm not sure if I nailed it or not. Hey don't get angry at us opinion guys. Vent at Satan for he produced statistical data noting Florida's lack of bubs.
Oh don't worry SUP guy, I don't get my feelings hurt on surf predicting intranet sites. Plus, I don't have any feelings left anymore. Sounds like you got your feathers a little ruffled, though.
HOMETOWN PRIDE !!!! WHOOO HOOOO ! Gotta love it............

Florida has a lot of coastline. I would argue that we have more quantity and therefore more quality surf down here. That and it's warm. For those reasons florida is better.
2 full winters in jersey there are alot of days that have big tubes that dont get photos or exposure. Every swell ends in a cleanup tube day. Surfed almost every day this spring. EPIC best place ever if u know where and when to go.

FL has the length of coastline and better potential for epic conditions, even though they are few and far in between. Consistency is probably the same with NJ maybe scoring more during the winter months. Although if you're talking about a better place for a surfer to live/work overall, I think FL wins. Warm water year round in the lower half of the state, close to epic spots in the carribean, drive a couple of hours to take advantage of a system that is in the Gulf - if the Atlantic is dormant, and beach access for the most part is easy and free.
I do think its not fair to compare states, maybe compare regions instead, like lower SE vs MidAtlantic, etc.

This was just on surfline not too long ago, says Florida got the best of it, not the best write up or photo coverage, but a few good ones. I believe it says somewhere that the bouy off canaveral read 15ft, although that translated to mostly 6-8ft with some sets possibly bigger at the best spots, none of which were posted in this article unfortunately.
