    Not sure if this has been addressed on SI before, but need to let off a little steam.

    I get traveling to other places for surf. We all do that. But when you do, (1) don't show up with 7 other friends and (2) wait your turn in the line-up.

    I like to share waves with our LI friends in hopes that when conditions are better there, that they show the same love. But coming down to Jersey like you own the place is starting to build some bad blood with the locals around here...

    What, no good on the insta-crowd? You don't own the ocean, haha Jk. That sh!t is lame.

    I moved down the beach yesterday to get more of the inconsistent sets that were coming through, only to be surrounded. I get a good one and boom, 1 guy became 10 in less than 5 minutes. A full clown show unfolded instantly. One of the ten was welcome because he's very respectful, and not a kook. I stayed out like 10 more minutes because it became an obsticle coarse of dumb. My last wave a clown paddles 5 ft past me, turns for a wave like it's his, I say "nice try buddy", while being blocked from being deep enough to get covered, he says "go ahead", because he saw that I was still going. Clown Town aside, I managed to get some good waves anyway, so it wasn't all bad.

    Clowns, morons, and the inconsiderate are everywhere. There's not a lot we can do about it, other then strategize.

    Jersey guys do indeed do the same thing here. Just because you don't dosn't mean it don't happen. Just like how just because some LIers do it, dosn't mean every one from LI does it. I'm sure a bunch of NJ guys bring insracrowds to the beach to. There are idiots and jerks in all states my friend.

    I'm not starting a NJ vs NY debate, but just throwing this out there because in the past two days Iv read twice now that NJ has no reason to go to LI. This hurricane season all of NJ on here (except for a few) were complaining about the swells while most of the LI guys were stoked on good waves. Don't take my word for it, go back and read some threads for yourself. Not saying one is better than the other. Just being realistic.

    Listen, maybe I shouldn't say this, but North Jersey surfers despise anyone from New York. It's true...No, it's a fact. The Moors did so much F'ing with North Jersey women, that blonde became dark.....changed the bloodline forever.

    Likewise, you should hear what Long Island-types say aboot New Jersey in general. They look down upon ye, North Jersey. They think they are superior. They surf better, too.

    Ahh, North Jersey and New York fighting. Good stuff. It's like watching a Republican Primary debate. You just can't lose.

    It's Jersey VS. NY now?
    Meanwhile the rest of the surfing world with actual good, consistent waves think we both suck.
    Seriously our waves are like a 2 out of 10 compared to most places.
    Silly little EC bickering.
    I got no problem with NY guys coming to NJ to surf. They are a good bunch and fun to chat it up with.

    For the record, I can say I've never encountered a New York surfer that I know of. Down here in South Jersey its the Philadelphia, PA, and Western Jersey guys that show up. Doubt many guys from down here are heading to NY either. This must just be a Bayhead and points North problem.

    You are an ahole and a transplant. You like the stink they bring or are you just bad at surfing like they are.

    No one heads to NY for surf if you live in Jersey. If you do, it might be better there maybe 1 or 2 times a year.

    as a resident of the waveless island of staten im not a local anywhere I also work in queen not to far from Li, now on weekdays after work i love the consistency Li breaks have and u can go anywhere its the least crowded, now on weekends I love going to Jersey 4-5 in the morning and checking all the different breaks, unless Li forecast is looking better, ive met some cool people over the years in both states though I feel less tension in Ny for some reason probaly cause in jersey its easier to spot out my strong accent but ive never had a problem in either one and to me thats what its all about just scoring on as many different breaks and chopin it up with new people

    sjb is this you??

    sure I hate new Yorkers as much as any other njersian,but I hate the ny drivers the most.they don't know how to phukin drive!!!as far as clogging up our lineups,its mostly the staten island crew which I wouldn't even consider that ny but it is.nobody from Montauk is going to take that 3 and a half hour drive to surf jersey unless its pros like balaram stack who gets paid to travel.

    as far as wave quality and consistency goes,long island all the long lost pops is up in Montauk and last time I seen him was like 7 yrs ago and we went to the beach and not only was it pumping,there were sandbars everywhere,like literally everywhere.inside sandbars,outside sandbars,sandbars in between,sandbars down the beach to the left,sandbars to the right.i was so mad I didn't have my board but being I havnt seen my pops since I was 5 I wasn't going to blow him off to surf.and the girls were beautiful.long island is money.broke people don't live there,ugly people don't live there,a few drug addicts that live with their parents but that's about as lowlife as it gets down there.

    and the scenery is beautiful.I don't recall exactly where my pops lived,but I remember it was all land like ur in tennesee and its all farms and shyt,no buildings,no houses 30 ft from each other,people have property down there.then u drive over a humongous bridge and u see the coast and its all breaking in the last 10 yrs iv been to long island once,i lived there briefly when I was a youngin but don't remember shyt and the waves I seen surpassed every epic day I ever witnessed up there.i don't think they do beach replenishment down there,I know they do in rockaway but not long island north end.i witnessed some glorious days here at home in jers,but our best day is their average down they can handle bigger size than us,most beachbreaks here close out at 8 ft,Manasquan can hold 15' maybe bigger but that's the biggest I witnessed.Montauk can easily hold 15ft
