I know we've hit this topic quite a few times, but just thinking that I've surfed pretty much waist high waves+ almost all summer long, I've got to say this may be the best summer in a while. Particularly the past few weeks in Central NJ have been really good (for summer standards). Besides the groms and kids on the inside during the summer months making you navigate a wave, I feel like the crowds havent been too awful yet either (beside the weekend)... You guys thinking the same? Everyone scoring as much and having a blast?

Having a blast...doesn't compare to '95(obviously), but definitelt fairly consistent windswell w/ surprisingly clean conditions(at least for me the past cpl weeks).

No, VB has been pretty much terrible. Crowd wise especially. Hoping for some residual storm swell tomorrow though

But since last Friday, I've been getting in some fun waist high sessions during low tide. Had such a session this morning. The water is warming up again.
At Dam Neck this evening around 6-6:30, there were quite a few folks I'd never seen before arriving or sitting on the beach with boards of all different shapes and sizes, watching the water, waiting for the possible larger swells that had been forecasted, and bemoaning the lack of rideable surf.
Hopefully, there will be something tomorrow.

I'd still give the nod to 2010, speaking of more recent times. But then again, there's still a month to go and a new front pushing through Thursday..........

Definitely agree, been rather consistent and fun, I have zero complaints, probably not best all time but it's probably in the top 5 in the last 20 years, I think we need an epic cane swell to solidify that spot though, nearly 3 months to make that happen.

Oh and I've got to surf like everyday too! Conditions have been better than I was expecting after what I've heard of summers.
