    What are you shooting with? Looks like your shutter speed is too slow. Set your shutter speed no slower than 1/800th and preferably faster than that. Most of what you see from me is shot at 1/1200th and 1/1600th. Hope this helps.

    Yep. Friday was about as good as NJ gets. Down in SJ our water didn't have that kind of color though and it was almost all Lefts. This shot was late in the day after it had crapped out.......if you want to call it that. I still haven't gotten around to culling and editing the 475 shots I took in about an hour and a half that afternoon.

    I have a Cannon Powershot and am a total hack photographer, those are still frames from video I shot as are most pics I post. I do take a lot of pics too but am mostly a videographer if I were to call myself anything at all. Yourself, Mitchell, Curl, even clownface are the true photogs on here, but hopefully what I post gives a feel for the stoke up here.

    I'm the opposite. I'm lost shooting and editing video. My camera and lenses would do a great job but between dragging a tripod to the beach and trying to be smooth and on point with the action I just hate it. Then you have to edit the clips. I have all the tools including Adobe Premier but just get no enjoyment out of video.

    Most of the photos are of my adult sons are from Torcia , Silato , Nibbs , Korn who shoot when it goes off . A few are of myself as the one above that Jack Flaherty shot . They send me so many classic photos that I refrain to show to keep crowds down . Each one of the photogs can produce a crowd . As with that pic above , Jack was set up and I was trying to convince a few iof the local talent to surf with me outside . Torcia showed up , and my conversion fell on deaf ears . Photo whores ! This pic was the inside fyi . 995A8B6B-F1F0-4A5E-9C66-A94F0C4796E2.jpeg inside

    Buddy got a cell phone pic of me....going for a left...when anyone with sense would have gone right. I'm a pretty militant goofy footer.

    No surf for me today. Stayed behind the lens and rooted my youngest on to winning the NSSA NorthEast High School Championship. Beyond stoked.

    This was the wave of the day as it drained out and he disappeared for the next 15 yards coming out clean.

    Nice job!

    Got a call from a bud from the old surf crew Saturday. He hadn't been doing any surfing but saw there could be a good swell. Got a good pile of fish so we made a plan to meet up the next morning and our old spot. Put the fish gear away packed a couple of boards as he is boardless. Get a late night text that he is bailing out. I was kinda bummed but didn't really feel like driving that far anyway. kept the boards in but also put some fish gear in and head towards the ocean with no plan. heading over the bay I see it is 39 degrees. 39 degrees! decided to fish that new hole I found and wait for the sun to warm things up. No fish.

    About an hr after sun up, headed back to the rig and drove to my favorite peak. Find it kinda firing and much warmer. Dudes said it was wonky early and just started to show a good wave. Between the early seasickness and the long lulls, most of the weekend crowd bailed leaving the patient ones to luck into a nice chest high clean workable wave. Thought it would be some trouble after taking some time off to concentrate on the fall run but a new wetsuit and an easy paddle out on the fish put me at ease. Turned on a good one right away and it was my best wave with a little cover to boot. Got a couple of decent after that but it died quick with the tide. It was I needed anyway. New suit works and the dude wearing it still knows how to surf.

    Monday - woke up to a gentle rain, which was ending as dawn broke and I headed out to chest - shoulder+ mostly closeouts. Hit a spot that I used to frequent much more, but had fallen off my radar the past 2 years or so. The East swell at dead low tide combined with the shifted sandbars made took me off my game a little. After a late drop on an OH closeout which garnered admiring comments as to the dramatic nature of my wipeout, I opted to paddle over to the other side of the sandbar where the waves were slightly more predictable. Got stuffed by 2 more closeouts and then got in nice and early and carved my way to the lip and speed-crouched down the line until I had to straighten out to avoid some adult learner floundering in the wash. Called it a day after that, found a nice piece of blue sea glass, showered and dressed for work and enjoyed a delicious ham and swiss cheese sandwich at my desk while saltwater steadily flowed thru my sinuses out my nose for the rest of the day.

    Super fun today. Chest to shoulder with an occasional bigger one. Little crowded but waves to go around.

    It was really good yesterday, but I am out of the water for a while. My right shoulder was not good a couple of weeks ago but I paddled out for a long session with a lot of current, a lot of paddling. I could barely lift my arm for a week after, it is just getting better now.
