    Crazy jellyfish sting in NJ!

    Whats up yo? So I went to get wet today at my secret nj surf spot, figured I'd get a taste of what's coming tomorrow, surf was small at best though, looked like mid july out there, minus the shoobies and all.
    So I'm just minding my own business waiting, like forever, for a little bump that I might even be able to catch on the longboard, and I get this wicked jellyfish sting on ma leg!! Kinda looks like these: https://www.google.com/search?q=port...&bih=955&dpr=1
    But I don't own a camera, can't show you a pic, but just like that.
    Anyways, be safe, you never can be too careful. You never know whats lurking in that dirty jersey water...

    Just wait. In a few weeks it will sting like that again for no reason.

    The beaches are officially off limits due to a jellyfishnado outbreak. I got nailed pretty good yesterday by big moon jellies, and now they are invading our beaches in full force. What's really fun is to scoop one up from above, so you can palm the top of it while it hangs/drips upside down on your hand. Then even though you get stung on the wrist, it is worth it after you nail your bro on the back with it as he is looking at the horizon waiting for a set to magically appear. Good times! (Don't do this with a Portuguese man-o-war!).

    It could have been a crackhead that got a hold of the wrong stuff!

    This stuff is for real. These stings are painful. I recommend that you stay out of the water for at least a week until they dissipate. I should know. I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night...
