    Its not that NJ is breaking like Pipe or something constantly... it has its moments. And for what you're saying about NJ being exposed in the last decade, it has been. About once a year(that I've read), whether it be in Surfer... Surfing whatever... there is an article about NJ winters. Barreling 5-8' waves constantly during the winter when theres a swell. NJ goes off during the winter with a good swell...

    The other thing, we're not saying these massive 30' waves are ridable. Most of the time its just a wave that no one wants to even think about riding. Like the one over the Inlet Jetty, No way in hell thats ridable, but its still there and the break can hold it. Its so rare for a wave that big to be ridable, that it'll rarely ever happen. But many times I've seen 10-20' waves that are ridable...



    Edit: Oh, and rgnsup, thats my photo from MSW you jacked of the pipe and tower

    Tres Palmas is Atlantic, but NOT east coast. Technically, we call it the Caribbean. There are even bigger wave spots in PR along the north coast and in or around San Juan

Please refer to Willard Bascom's book, ''Waves and Beaches'' for additional details like calculating wave speed and typical sand movement issues.

    The science can be a little more complicated and has to do with other factors such as local wind conditions, swell periodicity, swell size, bottom contours (e.g., undersea channels/canyons) and water depths in the transition to the sandbar/reef.

    Dude.. honestly, "only a local would understand"... what that you are a kook? nobody in their right mind would call that wave 30ft.

    You're missing the point that you're only seeing about half the wave in that picture. Again. Only a local would understand.

    What jersey surfer hasn't surfed or seen manasquan? I surfed it in '93 when it was 75 ft and hollow. I got spit out of a tube straight into Leggits bar and ordered a martini.
