    Oh I remember that swell. I 'member it real good....

    Plus, my bad, I consider June...as summer. Yes, not technically correct, but neither am I.

    Doug, hang in there, man. Don't ever give up.......

    I don't seem to recall the late April, 3 week bonanza swell............

    I feel like Jersey never gets big, messy, and "rideable". Yeah sometimes it will be a double overhead red man, but you can't paddle out in that **** and expect to get more than a 2 second ride. It's either big and hollow, or a sloppy nasty washing machine. There is no in between (at least in NJ)

    If I remember correctly last winter was good. We got the thanksgiving swell, then we got the doomsday swell, then we got a solid head high day, only one, in january, frebruary and march. And then not a real swell until thanksgiving.

    It's not a big deal. If you're on the east coast and didn't just start surfing you should know the drill. Months without real waves. Que es la vida, mis amigos.

    This winter in Charlestonia has been pretty awesome. Pretty consistent waist or larger waves for many days out of the week.

    That June swell was big... and there was a swell back in the first or second week in January that was a real macker, too... I think bigger than the June swell. Check the photo archives... Thanksgiving and the day before were up there with the biggest days, too.

    But for up here, the answer is easy... the swell we had just a few weeks ago. Easily DOH at the peak of the swell in Northern Monmouth... and nobody wanted any part of it where I saw it, including me. Just too massive and relentless on the inside to make it to the outside... and the outside was getting cleaned up by the biggest sets, breaking even further out. You needed a jet ski or something... I can't remember seeing it bigger.
