    Heard these are everywhere in jersey- except oddly enough, Belmar NJ has none. Also- are these the ones that even sting thru a wetsuit??

    I guess the only safe place to surf during this fall is Belmar, NJ.

    Wait wait wait hold up. My bad but I got to ask....

    Are you guys being sarcastic, doing the whole "oh yeah those are all over dont surf here or you'll die" thing.


    Do you guys actually see those things?

    Again my bad for asking but Iv enjoyed allot of greenery today....

    Got whacked in FL. No clue as to wtf species it was, didn't see it, felt like I took a baseball bat off my calf. Opposite of fun. Lifeguards had some interesting little elixir in a bottle, worked like magic. No it wasn't piss.

    i got nailed by a sea nettle back in '06 surfing the ernesto swell & that was bad enough. quarter-sized little bastard wrapped his long, willowly tentacles around my forearm & just held on. whole arm swelled up & turned red, like a spider bite on steroids. left me w/ scars till xmas.

    was wondering if anyone would catch that. you clearly have missed the not-so-subtle undertone of sarcasm in my previous posts on this thread, though.

    the only kook here is the one that doesn't understand sarcasm.
