Bring longboard or fish in the summer, performance all other seasons even a minigun is useful when a big northeaster rolls through. Angle on take off because this stretch is fast
be prepared to get worked if its head high or over. The waves here are top to bottom plenty of green room time to be had
This is my favorite stretch on the east coast. 4 miles of jettis spaced about 300 yards from each other create well formed sandbars catching focused swells. you can go any day during the fall winter and spring and find a 25-50 yard wall to yourself that may not sound like much but, consider that your alone or with only friends and can pretty much catch waves at will and it sounds a whole lot better. and on those days when your craving longer rides theres a certain street you can go to which will have more of a crowd but with walls that can go for over 75yards
Not World class for actual wave quality but with regular swells (Probaly 70days of the year on a decent year)cool locals and good night scene this stretch can claim that status

Harvey - Was my favorite place to surf as a grom and teen, before moving out to the Pacific. Hello to the boys of Forked River. Evan, Steve, and their Dad, Pete, Justin, and a list of others. All the best!Come out to the Pacific and Asia, I could never surf with a suit again, been spoiled for the last 8 years. Is Wave Jammer Surf in Toms River still open?

What? - I just bought my son a surfboard and heard LBI has nice waves. I went to this site for information, but was reminded of a line form Star Trek,"Beam me up Scotty there's no intelligent life here". Do you guys actually get girls? I strongly doubt it. Maybe I should have bought my son a new bike. I understand Kathy's frustrations.
