    if you make the drop and see a wall and squiggle a bottom/check turn it's a good one.

    I've caught more than a few 30+ second rides at The Cove, where the wave just keeps going, and you get out and walk back up to the rocks...
    btw -- Nova Scotia doesn't count, east coast U.S. only......

    Grew up surfing Sandy Hook NJ in the 70's - 80's and those jetties, before the armycorp ruined them offered some of the longest waves around. 1st Jetty could be the most perfect wave I have ever surfed. Unfortunately they are all under the sand right now and unless funding goes bankrupt they will not be seen again for a long long time. The cove "at the Hook" as it is now is nothing like it was back then, and hardly worth checking anymore. All of the great surf spots in northern Monmouth County have been ruined, The wall in Long Branch, Seven Presidents, Bradley Beach and Belmar were all great and are now mediocre at best. We all need a time machine to go back 20 years and ride those waves like they were.

    Since when is Nova Scotia not on the east coast... ? pretty sure the question was asking what the longest wave on the east coast was.

    And yes, Nova Scotia does have some longggg waves, there is a right that i know about that when its working is probably about 400 yards. Pretty good stuff.

    1st. You have never had a 30+ second ride at "The Cove" I have to stop laughing so hard to keep typing.

    2nd. If you exclude Nova Scotia your excluding waves like this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJDVgiG0Xx4

    Thats a point break. Which the Cove is most certainly not. Count how long the outside wave breaks and tell me The Cape May Cove has ever been that good.

    Coming from ns, i know this spot quite well. Its pretty popular but to no regards is looked at as a "long" wave. I'm not saying that you can't have a thirty second ride on it, but i'm saying that there are definatly longer waves around here. That wave.. known as "teahouse" is regarded as more of a hollow wave when its about head to overhead.
