  • i abandoned the main jetty's about 2 years ago after significant injury and board damaged to myself and others started to sky rocket.  It has gotten too scary.  I don't mind hanging out there as I usually do, but surfing there is a clusterphuck. I think you should start filming a surf comedy.  Do a documentary on kooks.  I bet everyone would buy it if it was done well and where better to do it then here????  I want 15%. ;D

    i feel thats dead on correct. those surfers are more geared towards dealing with a random swell - conditions they are def not used to throughout the year. so they will do their best, take their time & just ride. gotta remember this weekend isnt the norm & maybe if it was you would see from cape may on up, solid serious competitive styles of surfing. just saying its hard to develop when the conditions  are usually sub par overall for the year.
     
    theres a reason why the embarcadero skaters in the early 90s got so good & sponsered in a short period of time. amazing spot & the bar for what was deemed "good" was set insanely high. we dont have that mentality in place here in ny/nj for surfing so it to anyone outside the area wont exactly be blown away. it is what is - a great thing, but cant be compared or judged in any sense. we have fun, some suck & some are truely great. but either way, not giving a fk all the while.. my 2cents/take on it anyway.
