    Really, nobody's going to throw out a NOYA? J/K, sounds like a bunch of punk wannabes, of which you should have said something to them then, not wait to post on the forum. Are you afraid they might beat you up? Most people are all talk and no walk. If you never stand up for yourself, you'll constantly get walked on. Just looking out for ya, next time don't put up with it, or find a new break with a mellow vibe.

    Brah- seriously - ditch squan and paddle out at the best break around- and it's only 3 miles north!! BELMAR,NJ!

    You will not have to worry about the gray goatee guy... He makes his rounds around here- use to be a 'Avon' local... Apparently grew up there.. Idk... All I do know is that he doesn't mix at Belmar - so paddle out bro!!

    Another genius post by dawnpatrol. Keep at internet tough super core guy!
    You'd probably be the guy dropping in on everyone with no etiquette.
    Why should he not be afraid they'd beat him up? That's called common sense with strangers on beach in the middle of winter. You seem to lack common sense. Are you 15? And why should he have to fight anyone? He's a grown man trying to enjoy a surfing session. This is not a ufc cage match or d block at the big house.

    Just looking out for him my ass. How's the core winter surfing going in florida?

    Easy does it Margo, back to your meditation & lizard strangling. Not everyone on the SI Forum can tastefully & artistically hate. Takes practice. An acquired skill, you might say.

    That pack drop-in keerap happened to me & a buddy at the 15th St pier in VB a coupla years ago.

    Four guys, one of whom was a longboarding Cro Magnon Mr Potato Head with one tooth in his meth-amped skull and three of his shortboard pals. So, after being snaked a few times, and blatantly dropped in on twice, I started chatting up the greasy-haired shiiiite blonde twit who was the best surfer (and he was good, no doubt about that) and who seemed to take the most gleeful joy in his annoying d-bag maneuvers.

    Asked him what board he liked best, whether he thought a foam top was a good purchase for bigger waves, what kind of wax was best specifically for VB water, did surfing get a bro lots of tail, had he ever surfed drunk, if so what was that like......I was just in a mood. In my own way, I was an early incarnation of EmassSpicoli8'.

    'Cause it's either fight 'em or move down the line, so I figured my options basically sucked & who cares anyways at that point. The surfing shiiiiite ended up snarling at me wtf is your problem, stop following me around out here, and then he started paddling away from me shaking his head.

    Ah, the chuckles one has in the ocean.....

    um, if thats the route, how do you handle the buoys???? i bet you don't wait for them..or once
    but then not again….

    straight up - there is a high buoy factor where i surf. paddle around 'em becomes standard
    operating procedure unless courtesy/starpower/pity/bikini etc. deems otherwise.

    I had the opposite experience this weekend. I bought my first "real" board Friday night in advance of the weekend swell. The young dude at the surf shop was great. Super enthusiastic, super friendly, and man did he know his sh!t. He was nice enough to share his favorite spot with me, and invited me to join him Saturday. I checked my home break Saturday afternoon and it was fairly flat, so I drove the extra 20 mins to his spot. It was about 2ft bigger, so game on. There were two other surfers in the water when I got there, and 1/2 hour later the surf shop dude shows up with a couple friends. He immediately paddles over to see how the new board is treating me. We all stayed out until dark, and I had a blast watching the youngsters having an awesome time stealing waves from each other. One of the best sessions ever. That's what localism should be about. I feel like those experiences, however, are far too rare.

    BE NICE TO PEOPLE. WE CAN MAKE SURFING FUN AGAIN

    NJ Localism. What a joke. What are you protecting? A jetty-beachbreak that barely gets good by world-class standards? And yeah, that applies to every single "break" in NJ. Try to argue that one.
    The reason why you see all the pics in the mags and online of NJ is because every tom **** n harry has an SLR digital camera with a telephoto lens on it. They are in the right place at the right time. I've literally laughed at the screen at surfline's "good-to-epic" crap they post about NJ. The mag guys are probably obligated to document East and West Coasts, almost equally these days.
    Saturday was mixed-swell, closed-out, mediocre at best in Monmouth County. I surfed for an hour in the late morning, and caught 4 waves and came in. I watched it at several spots and saw nobody catching anything special. It had some size, but I must have surfed like 5 other times this winter when the waves were twice as good, and a little smaller (I'll take that any day). Where in the hell was everyone when it was BALLS cold out in Jan/early Feb? Crowds were pretty thin and everyone was well-behaved everywhere I surfed. I bet half the shredder buds on the peak at Manasquan were watching TV or drinking Medallas in PR. I had more fun watching chicks in stretch pants running by on the boardwalk and drinking beers after some face numbing closeouts.
    Anyway, for a guy (me) that has no special local spot, yet I live 15 mins from the beach, I sh** on all you shredder bud locals. Someone early mentioned it was time these tools grew-up. I agree, but hey, even crappy waves need some regulating. There are cool ways to go about it.

    Right!! Yesterday was busy, surprisingly busy. It's like the calendar hit March and all of the sudden everyone heads for the water. It's barely warmer now than it was in Jan/Feb. I had this one middle-aged dude, who happens to be super friendly and a great surfer, refer to yesterday as a "nice beginning to the season". What season? I thought surfing was a year-round activity? Is it not? Is that why there were only a few of us in the water all those cold days? Did I miss the memo?

    Do we start the countdown to next winter now?
