 Additional Information

The Cove is an artificial point break created by erosion control measures. Depending on swell direction, The Cove can be an all-time down the line speed run or a semi-mushy relaxed cruise. The more east in the swell the faster the ride.

Atmosphere

Get there early! On a decent day, the place fills up fast with boardriders of all kinds. It can get agressive at times. Also a hotspot for surf-fishermen who in general don't want you there. A bit less aggro as size picks up and crowd thins. Decent surf year round, with the late summer or early fall being the best due to tropical systems churning in the Atlantic.

General

The Sandy Hook area has other beachbreaks and jettys if the crowd at The Cove gets to be a bit much. Jetty just south can be just as much fun and is usually less crowded although the wave is not as long. It may not last to much longer due to sand replenishment, which will make the main Cove a bit more crowded. A good spot to hit when the conditions are right and Long Island is cross shore from the west with an easterly swell

Remember the movie "Point Break?'' - Just keep robbing banks to accumulate lots of money for your self, whilst wearing any former president's halloween mask, until you can afford to travel where a good point break is working. It's a win-win situation, coz even if you get caught & end-up doing your time@Rahway's, we've got plenty guy's on point right now just waiting to break on you. Yellow Rose sounds like exactly what the guys all need here; you'll become very popular bro!
