“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.

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.
