i don't put ne faith in magical "cane swellz"...most playcez on wrong island can't hold longer period sh$t, xcept turtlez and LB...and most timez it gits chaotic when it DUZ arrive, with sh$tloadz o current and lets face it thu wind RARELEEY goez offshore here! even if it DUZ, u haftuh deal with thu rite tide. i actually prefer windswell around here cuz it duzn't cloze owt az much. and i prefer l8 fall/winter cuz there'z less kooks/general surferz in thu water. lets face it, thu oddz uv scorin' good surf around here? better oddz winnin' thu lotto...don't live here 2 surf, but 2 make $$. once enuff $$ saved up, Cali here i come!
but strongly disagree about his further water knowledge.
if long beach and turtles are the only spots your thinking of then you have alot of exploring to do.
i could name 15 spots that hold groundswell better then you can drop into a wave
and thats on long island.
only an idiot complains about surfing. who cares if it's not thumping all the time, obviously you've got something worth keeping you here besides waves. if not, go explore... live in bali or california at least. if you've got no reason to be in ny/nj and don't travel it's your own fault.
if i didn't have 2 kids & a mortgage i'd be on a sailboat somewhere in central america or the south pacific eating fish & guiding touristas.
