    Ok. I just want to chime in with what I know of Manasquan. The way the inlet there is set up. The point beach side, holds a decent swell and will break good on a pretty big sized swell. That being said, with compared to point, Manasquan's beach is set back... an extra 500ft. So all those photos you see of Jenks going off 200' past the end of the jetty, its about 400-500' offshore... the same distance is gonna be between 900-1000' offshore in Manasquan... You tell me, but I'm pretty sure that a big wave can be held there that far off shore. Thats not the only photo I've seen of waves breaking that high onto the rocks on either side of the inlet, and I personally have seen waves that big crashing inside the channel of the inlet...


    I'm not gonna say these waves are ridable... but there has definitely been 20-30' waves in Manasquan...

    Ash Wednesday Storm 1962

    The Ash Wednesday Storm ripped apart most of the east coast producing some huge surf. Don't think anyone was in it but here is a pick taken from the dunes in Kitty Hawk, NC. Damn big surf. How big do you think that was??

    Time to chime in Micah. . .

    Let's apply some wave science. A wave can only be as big as the water is deep in a particular location. As soon as any wave feels the bottom, it breaks, so a 10 ft wave will start breaking in 10 feet of water. How deep is the bottom where that wave is pictured? Please refer to Willard Bascom's book, ''Waves and Beaches'' for additional details like calculating wave speed and typical sand movement issues.

    These were the pics SpongeOC was referring to that he took at the OC Inlet during Noel:



    Believe it or not, these were full color shots- but the day was so gray it looks B&W.

    Here is the depth at which a wave will start the shoaling process (start interacting with the bottom).

    Depth(ft) = Period*Period * 2.56ft , where period is in seconds.

    10 sec period => 256 ft
    12 sec period => 369 ft.
    14 sec period => 502 ft.
    16 sec period => 655 ft.
    18 sec period => 829 ft.
    20 sec period => 1024 ft

    So, a 10ft wave @ 12 seconds (a solid East Coast swell), will start feeling the ocean bottom at 369ft depth.
