    Monday- 2ft then 8ft then 2ft then 16ft. Ha-ha. Make up your mind. It’s funny for me because I just got back from Costa Rica. Not to funny for the guys/gals who just endured this EC flat spell that ended with a solid close out swell. It seems like west coast swells are way more reliable (not to mention bigger and longer lasting). Sure it gets good in NJ, but you may be institutionalized from wave deprivation by the time a good swell hits.

    My sentiments exactly...Better have a quiver, an SUP, spearguns, longboard skateboard, etc. for all different wave sizes and shapes we get and for all the time in between swells.

    yeh it is changing every day and getting a window of good waves lately is shear luck (unless you're not working of course....) sigh.

    I laughed when I saw the clean triple Over Head forecast for Belmar on Monday on my Iphone app. Wish NJ could handle that kind of size.

    yup the ever changing forecast... i don't know what to think other then I doubt its going to be 12ft...

    btw- anyone get out this morning or yesterday? Checked it- some small ones but looked like it was alot of close outs... anyone score some good waves? (not closeouts)

    It says Double Overhead, not Triple.

    My bad. Just glanced at the swell size of 8-12/ 8-10+. I'll definitely keep my fingers crossed regardless.

    @ BeachBreak.. Maybe I'm just being negative but I really have not seen legit double Overhead waves in Jersey. Maybe a hurricane Bill/ Irene but that's pushing it.

    This shot pops in my mind all the time, when I think about New Jersey large and in charge.
    This was an April south swell.

    Doogie Houser,

    "It 'seems' like West coast swells are more reliable, longer-lasting, and bigger."

    Wow, when did you figure that one out. Thanks for enlightening the rest of us with that keen observation. I don't think anyone knew that. Blew my mind.

    Everyone on this site is either coming or going to Costa Rica........Everyone is a karate kid too( I saw that thread about "fighting/boxing" to get in shape......and lo and behold everyone is Ralph Macchio) Then everyone one in Virginia Beach lives "right down the road" from the downed Navy jet. Amazing group we have here. Hey, I'm intrigued.

    Oh I wasn't saying that stuff to be a wise-arse(yes I can see how that may have looked that way) ......I'm just commenting on it in a mater-of fact way. I find the minds on this site to be fascinating in many different ways.

    Well 757, Hampton Roads in the house, I'm glad you didn't get injured by any falling planes. Hey 757, do you know any of Allen Iverson's peoples? I hope you don't buy things from them !!

    Oh I was being a wise-arse to Doug, though......... cause I owe him a few snaps.

    And 757, thanks for your warm welcome .........Now I'm just gonna wait for the meany guys to pick up on that and get all meany on me.

    Oh yeah one more observation.......in the music thread a few months back.......it was interesting how the group tried to one-up each other by claiming a more obscure band than the next guy. Like, the lesser-known the band, the cooler I am for listening to them. You find that a lot in the surf world. Look at surf mags CD reviews.....WHO THE TRUCK ARE THESE GROUPS !!! I taint never heard of them....and I'm almost positive they suck too. Led Zeppelin was the greatest band ever and I will sodomize anyone who thinks differently.
