“April Fools” in Jersey

There was some doubt about the swell on April 1st, 2022. Throughout March, the last few South swells had been fun–but generally not tubing.

August’s Post-Tropical Cyclone: ISAIAS

There’s no denying the Tropical Storm Isaias era of this Summer 2020 provided for East Coast surfers. In the week before Isaias, there was a 12-second, ESE swell that ignited an end-of-July & early-August surf fest. Isaias was lighting up Florida & the Southeast as NJ received fun, chest-high South swell conditions before the day […]
