Well this kind of sums it up:

I was born and raised in CM, then transplanted up to Mon Co where I've decided to stay. Only lived out of state for 4 years, when I was going back to school to change careers. The surf's better up here than CM Co, so that's good, but there's a whole other turist dynamic... you get the North Jersey/New York people instead of the Canadians and folks from PA.
When you've lived here as long as I have, you find there's a lot to love about our state. You have to... because if you dwell on the negative (and there's a lot there to dwell on) you're miserable. You just gotta find your niche, appreciate what you have, and live your life.
So I don't know about "overrated"... because if you're constantly comparing yourself to others, you'll never be happy. There's always better waves somewhere else... whether it's on the opposite coast or the next jetty south. "The grass is always greener..." right?

i think pipeline is overated.i would love to surf it,but id get run over,break my board,and get washed in.great wave,the only problem is the 600 guys out there trying to catch a wave.lucky we dont have that problem in jersey.i never ran anyone over,but if i did,id be more pissed than the guy i ran over.i saw recent footage where some guy is out on a funboard and ditches his board right infront of some local and nearly decapitated the sucka.
theres good waves everywhere,just some spots get more waves than others.jersey has to come together in all forms of swell,wind,and ocean floor.its not cali where u can surf offshore days everyday.thats why i think jers surfers are more humble,because we wait and wait and wait.i have a few spots id like to surf before i die.
spain,france,portugal,new zealand,africa,indo,australia.first i need a good job,then i need to renew my passport,then i need me a pair of floaties!
