All you have to do is drive up and down the road and look for the cars and trucks!! If you look at a jetty break count heads before paddling out. anything more then 5 to 8 guys and your wave count will drop heavily at those spots.
Cape may is my home break, i can say i never seen so many vehicles along the beaches with non new jersey tags other then in the summer. I was pretty suprised at first but decided to battle out at poverty where there was 700 people out. Being on a sponge i figured i was going to be getting chewed out of every wave, but everyone for the most part was pretty cool that was around me and we all shared the big kahunas
