Apparently the conditions have been “rad” the last few weeks for surfing all along the Jersey Shore. I met a local surfer named Austin who told me that it’s been some of the best winter surfing in many years. I talked to him briefly as he couldn’t wait to get back into the cold Atlantic Ocean. Austin and 2 dozen other surfers donned their wetsuits and caught wave after wave. Most rides were good, catching time in the tube with minimal wipe-outs.
I talked to another guy who was taking underwater shots of the surfing and he couldn’t believe how many guys were braving the cold water and the shallow water level. He thought it was pretty dangerous.
