    Longboard Domination?

    It is just me or does it seem like the majority of surfers in New Jersey are now longboarders? When i went out sunday there were always these longboarders that just sat waaaaay outside and snaked every single wave..it was getting Ridiculous

    Indian River is the worst for that. But a least all the longboarders tuck up inside the jetty, theres usually plenty of wave to do around a little further away

    I don't know if the majority of NJ surfers are longboarders but most of the surfers I know have both short and longboards. I know that I decide what to ride based on the wave conditions. IR Inlet is a mushy wave so it makes sense to ride a longboard there. And technically they are not doing the snaking if they are catching the waves outside.

    I longboard and I try my best to stay in the regular lineup most times and follow etiquette. That way I get my fair share of waves without looking like a hog. I also pass up plenty of waves if they look like the shorties by my sides are going to make better use of them than I could on the tank. My only problem is that I do it too much and I see a lot of dudes hold off on waves I know I could've had fun with. If overall conditions are better suited for shorter boards I just stay waaaay down the line and hope to pick off some shoulders after bails. Either way I usually end up satisfied with the session.

    It depends where you go. By the time i exited the water on Sunday at 10 am there were 25 - 30 guys at one break...NOT one of them was a long boarder. Manasquan and Allenhurst are a few places that seem to draw alot of long boarders...while other places don't at all. Location..location homie..
