 Access

Go down to Pt. Pleasant and go all the way past the boardwalk and there will be an inlet. On the other side of the inlet is Manasquan. On the side you are on, take a street at the end of the road that goes toward the ocean. That's Jenks.(Jenkinsons)

 Additional Information

It is mostly a left off the jetti but you can get some quick rights. It's a crazy spot and when it's good there is a decent amount of locals out. You should take off next to the jetti and go left. It bowls up somewhat on the inside too.

General

I think this spot is an awsome spot. It usually only starts to work with chest to head high waves and hurricane swell in the summer is the best.

still working? - Is it me or does it seem like Jenks is never working anymore? I used to surf there all the time in high school and it seemed like every swell we got, Jenks was always working. I don't live in the area anymore but it seems like everytime I check Jenks now on a good swell, it's completely flat or there is only shorebreak.Also, to the bloke that doesn't think that NJ can hold 15-20 foot faces, sorry dude but you are wrong. 20 is extremely rare (once a decade) but 15 is pretty common (once or twice a year). Take a look at localswell.com and check out some recent pics from Bay Head (you'll see plenty of 15 foot faces). Also I've seen insane pics from Ruggles that were well over 20 feet.

20 jenks - Rar by hollerback14 Feb 2005 - 23:03 John what are you saying? Are you talking about 15-20 ft swells? Because im pretty sure theres no where on the east coast, let alone New jersey that can hold 15+ faces. Maybe some spots in florida can do 15, MAYBE. And i've seen Ruggles get big on storm swells in the winter but ive never heard of NJ holding 15+. 20 is ridiculous. do you know how big 20 is? check out shots from pipe in TW somtime. Thats about 20 feet or more. Your not going to see it get big at jenkinsons or anywhere in new jersey -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Ruggles? look at the shef off ruggles on google earth ,then the shelf off n.j. or better yet hatteras. jenks can hold 20ft... if the swell is right. you cant tell me ruggles or florida can but nothing ellse can. how do i know...cause i surfed jenks at 20ft. you surf jenks long enough year round and you will get the picture. yes i surf pipe,,,and man it is nice not to deal with wetsuits and icecream headachs. the reef and crowds suck.

I rode in ocm - I was out down in Ocean City Maryland and we had a similair firing swell with faces getting up into the double overhead range. It was an epic East coast for the first time in a long time all over. Hope nobody missed it!!!
