    Nice shots. I love central florida by the way..

    The caption to the 2nd picture says:

    "the last time the waves were better in Florida than anywhere else on the east coast was last October...the devastasted areas did see a above average winter in terms of surf. Florida? Not so much"

    im getting the feeling that some of the folks defending their state may not have surfed enough in the other state.

    I don't hail from either but i've surfed in both. been regularly visiting florida for 20 years and surfed from cocoa beach to deerfield during every time of year. been doing the same in jersey except in the summer and all north of manasquan.

    i can't see how anyone who has surfed both places alot can say florida has better and more consistent surf. every surfer i know that has moved there has been disappointed.

    Yeah, wasn't crazy about the article itself, just thought it had a few good pics, I feel we had a great winter here in Florida, I think most who live here would agree.

    Fair points, have you surfed any further North than Cocoa in FL?

    Well, what was dishonest aboot anything I said? Again, I even made the friggin disclaimer that I'm not trying to offend Floridians. If anything, I was as honest as it gets.

    Nahhh, you didn't hurt my "little feelings." It's impossible for practically anyone to hurt my feelings much less on a computer. Dude, I have been surfing Camden, NJ for over twenty years, and did 96 days in the Atlantic County Justice Facility(my own Shawshank Redemption, I became Yard Dog in less than two weeks)......I think my skin is thick enough to handle intranet squabbles. Yeah, unless you're a big African American Muslim, who hates whitey, and wants my pillow.................

    I'm not a teddy bear. I am Paddington Bear, also known as Paddington Brown or Mr. Brown. I am not a teddy bear. Plus dude, if you are going to come at me, try a little harder than calling me a teddy bear. New Jersey first graders wouldn't be impressed with that.

    Friends again? Well, you apologize, then call me a teddy bear, and then ask to be friends .......all in your last two sentences. I just don't see the sincerity. I just don't see it.

    Good! That's the fighting spirit, the force is strong with this one. Listen Bill, that is your name right? Next time I want any sh*t out of you i'll squeeze your head. Nah, just kidding, Momma dukes taught me that one and it just felt appropriate, don't go all "yard dog" on me or anything. So you got some street cred, is that what you're trying to get at here? Proud of being locked up? I sure hope not, my nephew has been in there for the last year or so and it's no picnic.

    Truth be told, I'm just having a bit of fun w/you, I don't believe I actually said anything negative ABOOT New Jersey at any time, all I did was defend Florida, because it truly is a great place and wouldn't trade it for anywhere in the world, well except maybe Hawaii, other than that, i'm staying put. As for you moving to Florida, you would love it, it's a beautiful place, and is probably why most everybody who leaves the NE ends up here. I don't know too many people who leave FL to live in the NE, but i'm sure there are the exceptions to the rule.

    All good man, wasn't asking you that question to bait you or anything... was just wondering, because if you base your experience in Florida off Cocoa and South, you are missing the boat. You do know it's more consistent up North right? Jacksonville / Mayport Poles, New Smyrna / Ponce Inlet, Flagler Pier, these are some spots you should check out next time you decide to make a visit.
