    Totally not dissing South Jerzy, CC... I'm from Cake Bay, born and raised in the sticks, and still love it. Grew up surfing Poverty, Queen St. and Backyard. Road trips were to Stone Harbor, "Trestles" in the Crest, AC... even lived right on the beach in Brig for a year, and got it good. Used to be a shop rat at Danny Heritage's original shop, and learned the basics of building boards from the guy... and cried when he died.

    LBI gets heavy... no doubt. I'm not gonna burn any spots, but in terms of power when there's a decent swell, MoCo's got the juice. Barrels, brother.

    O Barry, LB knows I'm just playing. It's cold hard fact that the North gets the better juice.

    It’s a bit off the rails at the moment but will bounce back when Lance or someone else posts more pics.

    Incorrect i know a shop with a bathroom i can use.

    As for the county pissing match i started, yes, you stated everything else well, but monmouth as you incorrectly stated is not the heaviest by any means. Everyone goes and surfs big juice there because they would be fools to even try it here. 99 times out of 100 if monmouth is pumping, the pier to jenks is totally nasty and gnarly.

    Therefore, I too then incorrectly overstated, because squan and monmouth and the hook are places to surf on big swell because it's always smaller and under control and has jetties, more shelf, etc..
    The inlet is the biggest rideable place but that's it. jenks is the heaviest wave on the east coast.

    When the inlet is 2 foot mush we got double the size and power, while the same time as you correctly stated the hook is flat and yes i say those times the branch is soft.
    I know the hook, the branch, the inlet very intimately. Had great memorable waves up there. The locals rip. Much softer than the pier up to jenks.

    Not soft like florida, snj, etc., but soft-er than here. Seaside park on down is also soft-er. This seaside to jenks stretch is the most crunching surf in jersey, hands down.
    Facts are facts.

    We get waves all summer you never see up there in softer, smaller monmouth.

    Averages are it sucks here on bigger winter swells because there are no jetties and too much power, so in that case you make one point, but in general we get more swell all the time, as you did well to also point out, even though it mostly sucks, so we go to the inlet, the hook, or lbi on a nw wind, or south on a north wind.

    You are right we do get a lot more surf than you.
    We get more size and power, too.
    That means you are right that you get more rideable size, if you leave out the pier, bh, jenks, which is leaving out a lot. Except the pier is not the pier anymore.

    Sorry about the confusion.

    That's a bold claim. I've never been there, so I don't know. Anybody else think that it's the heaviest wave on the EAST COAST on here?

    People get hurt. Boards get broken. All the time. People do not drop in on each other. Dangerous.

    I'm not saying it's not. I'm just asking others who have been there and have been to other heavy waves along the coast and could compare them.

    Yeah i don't know every break, true, but this place dredges. It also gets good. The right can resemble the bowl at inside sunset.

    From what I have seen it looks like it’s pretty awesome.

    I have surfed all of nj and from hatteras village to buxton and just the thought of going to surf jenks intimidates me, but then again, so does anywhere on a certain swell.

    Heaviest is relative. But, NO.

    Nah man, I was just messing cause you were making bold claims.

    It definitely seems like a heavy dumpy beachbreak that can have its day. Although I have said on here that NJ barrels always seem heavier, there are sandbars along the barrier islands that have their nasty dumpy days that are ridiculously heavy. Not sure you could claim as fact but I will take your word for it.

    It's actually an inlet jetty and insane wedge.

    That being said, the lighthouse first jetty can be heavy as anything, too, at times.

    Grew up surfing LBI in the mid to late 80’s. Don’t know about anything south of there, but surfed Sleazeside and MoCo fairly regularly through the 90’s.
    Squan is the heaviest wave in Dirty Jerzy hands down.
    Only east coast wave that compares is Ruggles in RI.
    I say this without ever having surfed south Florida’s pumphouse.
