    Yesterday was an awesome day in Monmouth. Head high, clean and managable crowds. Add the nice warm sunny day and it doesn't get much better. Was at its best late am into early afternoon through the low tide.

    Need a few more of those days. And soon.

    You know it's good when a few times during the session you have to paddle a 100+ yards back out to the tip of the jetty. I feel for the guys that had to watch it on the cams.. painful, but more days will come!

    that's because we've had about 3 days of waves this fall. Pathetic

    I'd call it 3-4 foot yesterday.

    So now we're using the Hawaiian scale in NJ?

    Yeah, didn't catch many waves in the middle of NYC yesterday, but did have access to some nice drainers on various cams. Also, had some friends that were nice enough to send me some pics of what I was missing. It seems like the last few swell we have had (and there haven't been many) have had a very small window of good surf. I can't remember the last time we had a swell that lasted 3-4 days, or even 2 days for that matter.

    If by most people you mean the people from Hawaii then you are correct. 3-4 foot is stomach to chest to the rest of the world.

    Best day of the fall for me (which ain't sayin' much this fall). I got out just as the tide started dropping, wind went west and I had it to myself for an hour, just long, chest high peelers, no gloves, no hood, sunshine.

    You know, we all know that theoretically long period swells are better (and in places with reefs and points, it's a no brainer) but really our beachbreaks are made for these shorter period 7 sec or so swells. Nothing was closing out and barrels were ridiculously makeable even for an aging schlub like me.
