Not so bad... - Honestly, Holyoke is a pretty good spot. And everyone knows about it, so it gets that much more crowded. And you know the rest...if you're not a good surfer, stay away from the top of the jetty, for safety as much as anything else, cause it gets crowded. Some aggro "locals" but give 'em their due, they're surfing there in January when I'm warm in bed...I've gotten some super-long rides there on a rising tide. Low tide, not so good.

holyoke sucks - 10 years ago it was way better.. now its sold out, it doesn't even break correctly and if you saw it firing it probably only lasted one day... either way stay at holyoke cause the next jetty down is way better but the boyz will fix ya right up with a good stuffing and ear full of get the fuck out's... they should because if we came to your spot/ you'd be the same way!!!! stay at holyoke or go surf somewhere's else!!!

Sick wave - during the spring my friends dad has a house down off liberty and we stayed there for a weekend. so my friends and i surfed holyoke all weekend, all day. This wave is the best left i have ever surfed besides casino pier. On the second day it was really glassy with 4-5 foot waves. Barrels and everything. I live by seaside. And i try to get back to lbi every chance i get.
