    Last night was surprisingly good at certain sandbars in OCNJ from 6pm until dark.

    Ditching work early and going to go get folded up in some shore pound before the sun goes down. Hoping tomorrow will clean up some if the winds get their sheet together.

    This. Semilong pumping little rights 70 miles north of ocnj beachbreak was chilly and good. One of those amazing summer scores everybody else misses out on. Gotta just walk up and check it and there's waves nobody who is anybody even finds out about.
    Happens every summer! The kooks all leave and we get the evening swell. No lifeguard shit after 6. They all go back to the hole they crawl out of back over the bridge. No beachbadge shit, either.

    Same as my Jerzy brethren above... little loggers yesterday on the incoming. Water was downright tropical.

    On a side note... visibility had been spectacular the past few days. Saw a LOT of really big Tog... but of course... they're out of season right now. Missed a decent sized bass. Lot's of fluke, but I'm sick of it already.

    Gulf has some crazy energy in it still. Took a lot of work to get to the outside but it paid off with a really fast drop and a long ride to the inside with 2 fun sections. Arms and shoulders are cashed though from fighting the current and wind. Ready to feast now

    This was from this morning once the wind started coming up

    Cool shot, the water color looks inviting (minus the suite)

    Scored Uppers today at first light. Got 3 right sets that were freight trains. Just pumping and dodging fools. Snagged a bunch of lefts in between. 6’+ on set with some powahhh. No wind either. Good day of surf!

    No ride report... just another viz report: excellent. 15'-20' in spots. Mostly 8'-12'. Low tide... a bit of wind and current. Lots of big, dumb, out of season blackfish. And lots of fluke...

    ....stinkin' fluke.....

    On the east coast you have to own a longboard. Caught some small but fun longboard waves yesterday. The water was super clear. There were alot of Dolphins and pelicans chasing fish near the sandbar. You could see the ocean floor while cruising down a wave. It felt like I was back on the outer banks.

    I'm glad some of y'all are scoring. I've seen one rideable day in the last month. You can't make any other plans either because it thunderstorms every afternoon due to the 110 degree temps. I hate summer!!!

    Here is my last two surf sessions. The first was on Sunday using a longboard and then last night I did it again on a shortboard. There is no substitute for actually paddling a surfboard. Fall is coming and now is the time to start preparing. Water was bathtub warm last night.

    Paddled out last night about an hour before dark. Waves were about waist high and weak. Was so foggy that I couldn't see the waves coming. Water was incredibly cold.......I'm thinking low 50s. After about 30 frustrating minutes I was so cold that I wasn't functioning. Paddled in without even riding a wave. Was wearing a fresh 3/2 and froze my ass off.

    What's happening? How's the summer? Been a long time since I posted last.
    It's not that I haven't been surfing here and there. Been more like who's been to the beach and brought a longboard. Small waves when I could find them. the water has been so clear and the fish, clams and crabs are all over the place. Spent some time in the mountains too. Good to get away.

    Just got back and had a couple of good sessions the last few days. Last weekend was what summer surf is all about. Friday sunset sesh with the longboard. long bumpy rides of a building windswell until dark. Get out after a few rides and walk back. Chug beers @ the fire pit right on the beach. Go get a few more waves. My kids got a bunch of rides. Some with me on the board with them some just them. We beat the heat and stayed there all night.
    Stayed in place all day Saturday with waves all day. Shorter rides on shorter boards. mostly surfed just to cool off. Honestly just being ten feet away from the water was awful. the kids stayed close to shore riding the current on boogies like they were tubing a river. Longboarded again the next morning. Little and glassy. Surfed through a spearing school. They flew out of the water as I glided through. A nice school of bass right underneath. It was a grateful dead morning.

    Yesterday there was a legit swell around here. Dark and stormy. Big meaty windswell peaks sucking of the rocks at low tide. Waves were breaking way way out there. Long fast rides on the fish. Dropping in straight on the outer peak for speed and just connecting section after section with some groovy turns in between. Had to leave before I was done though and the man ( who seems to be getting more incompetent and frustrating) kept me from getting in another session. But hey waves come waves go. This dude abides.

    as always hoping for more for me and yous

    Where are you located, CJ? Doesn't sound like normal US east coast surfing at this time of year. Big heat wave lately in much of the eastern US
