Hurricane Earl: Summer 2022

The first Hurricane of the Atlantic’s 2022 season was called Earl. An interesting and long-lasting storm: Surfers on the East Coast rode the swell for four days straight–starting with an extremely fun evening session on Friday September 9th. Going through the photos–I realized they were mostly kinda shitty. This occurred for two reasons: a) the […]

“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. It was starting to feel like overhead kegs would remain a distant memory. Alas, April immediately delivered what the Jersey faithful had been waiting for. The swell wasn’t huge, but it […]

Black & White 35mm Dump

For some reason, the photo galleries that get the most clicks on this website are 35mm film dumps. Not surfing galleries… Not pictures of some of the best waves NJ and the East Coast has to offer… Just dumb photos of people drinking beer and making weird faces at a mishandled Canon. I think it’s […]

On Ray in NJ

Fuck Surfline man. 6-10 foot is a heavy claim for some of the most notable swell magnets on planet Earth. So, when a respected surf forecast application stands behind such a claim–the resulting expectations are pretty high. By August 22nd, 2021 surfers from NJ and along the East Coast had already sampled waves from the […]

Shark Week: Dorsal Drip

Jawsome paraphernalia for ocean-goers who want to pay respect to the Gs of the sea. By: Britt Mattie (somewhere elsewhere – @_bmattie_) Nightmarish predispositions of the slippery taxman were placed in our heads back in the summer of ’75 when JAWS hit the big screen. In the wake of its manic response, Hollywood and media-driven paranoia […]

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 […]

May 2020 Opens with Waves

Up until this point, URN Surf Co. and Rambler Surf Magazine have quit sharing live updates and timely photos of waves during the COVID Quarantine / Lockdown. This was in an effort to draw less attention to beaches that were in danger of being shut down. However, as NJ and the rest of America take […]

Carnage at the Local Dredge

On February 2020’s first Friday, NJ experienced a large South swell that had been forecasted something like 7 ft. @ 11 secs. It’s hard to say if the resulting surf matched that prediction; however, the day’s session turned out to be one that will be remembered. Some of the most hi-octane and longest righthand tube […]

Numbskulls Score Again

Yet another quality edit out of Ryan Simalchik and gang. Before Christmas, the crew drove north to East Coast Canada where Winter was already in full force. NJ surfer Rob Kelly met up with Nova Scotian barrel hound Logan MacLennan in order to find the outer reef slab of slabs. Seemingly perfect A-frames bucked the […]

DJ Surfology’s Year in Review

2019 had some tubes. As I sit here hoping for a 1.9 ft 7sec swell to longboard in the morning, it seems 2020 is off to a slow start. Mr. Latch recounted 2019’s flavor and energy in this here short YouTube film above. Blending clips of 2019’s bodyboard tubes and fishy jives, DJ Surfology mixes […]
