    Im toasting a drink in your general direction hoping to more fronts that set up a good fetch for yall.

    Yeah, I hate to sound like some old arse waxing nostalgic aboot the good old days. But really, shoot was better. First of all, youse guys weren't in the water. Ha Ha oh man, that was a good one.

    No really, we used to get spurts were it was actually consistent with numerous quality days. Those celebrated days last winter were common. Good winters, back in the mid 80's to mid 90's, we used to get a "Doomsday Swell" every week, almost. We got good swells where even the choppy build-up was good, then the offshore prime day, and a good leftover day..........and the next swell was on The Weather Channel's surface map heading into the Ohio Valley.

    Jill Brown would be all, "Cleveland, it looks like snow today and lot's of it. And tomorrow the Northeast will be getting slammed with temperatures well below freezing for the next few days. Could be a big snow producer. " Ya know what it is that I be sayin'"

    It happened. It really did. Beach replenishment was rare and the water was dirty. Wet suits weren't as chippy and you felt the pain of winter water temps without the flexibility and comfort y'all have today. Well, you could find plenty of empty jetties in Ocean City even on good days. Try that today.

    Ha, maybe that's the problem. Too many people in the water are affecting the weather systems. So, I encourage all y'all(especially in New Jersey) to stop surfing. Thank you. Lets bring back some of the natural order.

    Do you think that the massive number of surfers in the water these days is what has caused the ocean temps to rise? Think about it, has nothing to do with global warming. It's all the excessive body heat and urine at our breaks that is jacking up all the weather patterns.

    Damn, I'm going to call Al Gore and discuss this a little deeper. Meanwhile you should all stay home and help the environment!

    Try to find an empty jetty in OC even on crap days. I bought a longboard so I could surf small empty waves. Not going to happen there.

    Im not a full on weather nerd, but it seems the jet stream being far north sends the storms north (New england area) setting NJ up for that SSE angle that is the holy grail in monmouth and ocean county, while in the past the jet stream was dipping more south sending the storms over the OBX setting up the classic E or NE swells that light up CMC and Atlantic county

    anyone notice a shift in early 2000's setting more south swells relative to E or NE swells in Jersey..am I talking out my arse on this one, thoughts anyone

    I blame it on the kids going from "punk" to emo...and then there are the hipsters...don't even get me started on the hippies. I chase em off the sand with soap on a rope. The water has never been cleaner...

    Jeez, MIS-13 if I ignore your utopian society and political discourse, you actually know the real deal. And that's just so rare anymore.

    Dude, South swells have completely dominated the scene the last 7 years at least. There was a period where we got absolutely no NE swells. I mean NONE. Hey, that's ok with me. My spot sits on the North side of river, ya dig? But yeah, just some strange stuff. And it wasn't just these northerly tracking storms, it was every swell originating from everywhere. South swell....south swell......south swell.......

    The times are certainly strange.

    dont hate on me for daring to dream of a better world homie!!!!
    I dream of an anarchist world where everyone loves each other as their brother, every jetty works at a wisp of a swell, never mind the direction, and all beginners surfers go to 59th street in OC leaving the best jetties to those in the know

    Also, pipeline and rocky point are replicated at hundreds of places around the world, and the swell just appears....


    since you said politics, here you go:

    The Law demands that we atone;
    When we take things that we don't own;
    But leaves the lords and ladies fine;
    Who take things that are yours and mine...
    -Anon circa 1764

    there were some good snowstorm swells in 2010, but they seems to be like a unicorn, super rare
