    How's Smith's Point these days?

    I haven't surfed Smith's in at least 3 or 4 years. Last time I went by the ranger station at the FINS beach there didn't seem to be a sandbar and it basically dumped on shore. Anyone surfing there lately? Is it worth checking out? I used to really like it, it was close to me and parking wasn't too bad

    Not much has changed, I live close by as well and check it from time to time. The erosion has gotten really bad and there is not much beach left. I think most of the sand ended up in Davis Park. It's just shorebreak and then on bigger swells, there will be a mushy wave that breaks 200 yards outside. It sometimes appears to be good out there, then once you paddle out to the break you realize that it is just a mushbuger that is barely ridable. You could always walk to the west of FINS and look for a sandbar but I haven't seen much down there. Every time I check it there I just end up driving to Westhampton or Gilgo anyways.

    But like you said the parking isn't bad, just make sure you lock it up. I've heard about cars getting broken in to and have seen firsthand MS13 looking dudes walking the lot looking for open doors, and they will watch you to see where you put your keys

    FINS was firing all winter long. Late fall erosion dumped a nice sandbar for an inside break, outer bar did well on the big swells. Maybe you're not paddling hard enough. Smiths needs a really good tide/swell/wind combo, but when you get all the conditions just right, it's still a damn fun break if you're local and not looking to travel far. Haven't been in the water in a few weeks now so I can't say for sure what it's doing after the last 2 or 3 Nor'easters... but with all that sand movement, there's bound to be a good break somewhere if you look.

    Enough kooks surf Smittys. There is no need to blow it up. It works every 5 to 10 years in actuality.
    Tubetime is right, I witnessed a beaner with his family take my sandals and my towel off the beach while I was surfing. I got out of the water and ran up to him and grabbed it out of his hand. The beaner tried to apologize but I wasn't having it. I told him that he was a horrible role model for his family and that he should get out of the country ASAP before I call the Immigration Department. One of his many brothers wished he had a boxcutter and so did I. I told the cops but they just laughed at me, **** em

    Chill

    to 4fins80, cool it with the race issues, I'm interested in the maritime climate not the political climate. Why are you talking immigration issues to a surf questions. I go surfing to try to forget that this president is flushing our country right down the toilet. I don't need to be reminded about how a fast track to amnesty will hurt America. I wouldn't go one on one with the visible part of the iceberg you see everyday, work on dumping this congress and this administration asap, and try to forget the mess for a while when you go surf. I don't care if you're toward the right (like me) or to the left, having a knife fight over a pair of sandals is just stupid

    Why The **** do you care about real waves? You and Spackledust are ****dragging SCUM. You guys need big closeouts with no faces so you can Drag your cocks and get them in a big knot, maybe if there is a face you can do one of those gay ass baby spins you guys do. What really gets me with you ****draggers is when you put one Knee up and ride the wave, really. Come on now, your halfway there just put the other knee up then stand up on your feet, then you guys can be really gay and surf on your bodyboards
    "YEAH WEEEE look at me,Yeah I am king of the world" . I guess you guys didn't get the memo that bodyboarding is as lame as Rollerblading. Do you guys Rollerblade?:

    Fins you'll have to give us a call next time you head down to Smittys so we can watch you pump your way down a waist high wave and do one of those sick cutbacks everyone does. Honestly, I've never seen a single surfer there with enough talent that should be proud enough to be trashing strangers on a forum, and I've called that break home for 25 years. Judging by your posts it's clear you didn't even set foot on a beach, let alone the planet, until the late 90s though... so I'll let your ignorance slide as immaturity.

    Relax kid, you'll figure it all out someday.
