    ^Seriously. Wave heights on this forum are so overblown it's ridiculous. Triple overhead waves don't break in knee high water at beach breaks. Must be a hell of a sandbar to go from that deep to shallow so quick.

    And the waves at 3:00 aren't barreling, or triple, let alone quadruple overhead.

    The summer flatness is turning this place into the bullsh*t brigade.

Waves are huge since their refracting and lining up perfectly for incredibly long rides. Doesn't look like the east coast.
    The 3 minute mark looks incredibly fun. But, that IS mushy in my opinion. I would say the waves look to be 8-10 ft.

    Take your fingers....measure the surfer at the bottom of his turn and see how many times you can fit that into the top of the wave. And how do you define a barrel? It wasn't pipeline or a spitting big barrel like cloudbreak, but it was clearly barreling point break style. The surfer didn't take off in the barrel section. 3:00 minute mark wave was at LEAST triple overhead.
    Surfers like to underestimate wave height to keep crowds down. That's how the Hawaiian scale of measuring waves came about. Measure from the back of the wave....haha. It was a big joke.

    2 foot overhead....My ass!! Are you kidding me? None of you guys know how to measure wave height. I wish I could freeze frame some of that stuff. Yeah it's mushy compared to a spitting new jersey barrel.(which is what the majority of members seem to be familiar with) That's a classic point break barrel.

    Sure they do... First, I know double and triple overhead, as in my 42 years of surfing I have surfed around the world including Sunset and Pipeline on numerous occasions. I don't know how the bottom is now but in the 70's it was a concrete and rock reef and sometimes in the shore pound I'd look down and see waterless sand and rocks. And yes on the right swell the waves would swing around the point and the NNE wind was offshore with hailing rooster tails and totally blind takeoffs and in sub 20 degree air and 30 degree water... It was just as scary as the pipe on the big day... There are numerous places that break big in super shallow water... Sebastian inlet on the right tide is one. We had more balls then sense then, now its the other way around...

    Ahh man, Shark Hunter.......

    Just because you can use your fingers to put that dude four times from the trough to the lip doesn't mean its 4X overhead.

    Waves have different shapes and slopes. A four foot wave can literally be "overhead" depending on its form and shape. But it's not "Overhead."

    Those Montauk waves were pushing 10 foot. And it wasn't a classic, point break barrel. Go to Rincon(Santa Barbara, CA), low tide, in the cove for a classic point break barrel.

    God forgive me Seldom Seen, but there seems to be a lot of confused people from Rhode Island.

    Hawaiins aren't joking when they call 15 foot Pipe, "3 foot." Hawaiins are insane and mentally challenged. And surfers don't downsize the size of waves to keep the crowds down. That would suggest that every surfer depends on second and third hand accounts of the days surf, and that they only surf when these coconut wireless surf reports report sizeable waves.

    Dang the acid must have been good during the 70's............

    Triple overhead NJ beachbreaks.....breaking in knee-deep water..........

    And considering Cape May is a third the size as the rest of the coast can you imagine what Ocean City and Bayhead was like !!! Wow.........

    Talking of "confused".

    A four 4 foot wave can't be overhead unless a leprechaun midget is riding the wave.
    Wave heigh is wave heigh regardless of shape/mushiness ect.
    Well then teahpoo would be 1 foot when it's 30 foot according to hawaiin scale. Hawaii scale is a joke. You don't measure a wave from the back. That was to keep haole's away from the breaks back in the day.

    Alrighty over-optimistic wave height callers.......

    I don't know aboot Rhode Island, or Montauk or New Smyrna, but Jersey's 21 foot under 23 foot....maybe even 20 foot under 23 foot.....tides starting to come in.....it's cloudy with a good chance of rain......the beach crowds should be limited.....the water should be uncrowded..........I'm on it. Whooo hooooo. Goodtimes....goodtimes.

    I wish Archy was down here. Aww man, he's all worried that I'm going to find out who he is.

    I kind of wish SUP was out with me today. Of course I wish Erock was around, and Koki Barrels. Sometimes I dream of MB with LBCrew. I think Za Gaffer is trying to kill me. I hope he succeeds. Spicoli's leaving the country. I wonder if the nation will notice anything different. Ocean0 hates me because I'm ugly. And Dune won't let me marry his sister......

    Ok, I'm going to see aboot a shred. Good luck to all of you guys. Hope things work out for youse guys, except Xgen70
