f u all - i live down lbi n nomatter how big the waves get, with an off shore wind, you can find a real nasty break so u all r bitchs the locals kno where it at

not that crowded - i surf here just about everyday. Sure its crowded in the summer but its not nearly as crowded as holyoke (its souther n counterpart). Besides u can surf just about every beach north of that until the parkway during summer.

sweet spot - i was here wednsday july 28th during a hurricane swell, by far the most amazing waves i have ever seen in jersey, chest to head high, most days this spot is really clean, even 3 footers that r clean are so much fun, if you go to LBI, you gotta surf here

12' in NJ ! - Ship bottom cannot hold anything over say 6', like
most every other beach break from NY to VA. Or it will
peel off for maybee 15 lucky mins. before reverting back to
closeouts. I know cause Ive surfed NJ or 20 years.You
have to find a huge jetty(think inlets) or some other
unusualy solid bottom to handle stuff over 6'. In places like france and mexico, beach bks. hold size only because
the sandbars get surf more often. Gurney ST., Beach Haven
and a few spots in Harvey cedars are the exception here,
unless you like closeouts.

12ft? - you guys in N.J complain about knee high surf and its so cold. Surf in Nor-Cal. Its usually 2-3ft and you need a full suit year round. You guys have hot summers with warm water(high 60's). Stop complaining.Nor-Cal 4 Life

no title - I grew up on the bay at 27th street and I never surfed or saw anything close to 12 feet. Not even during a Nor'-East'er.

By anonymous , 24-08-2002

uhh - i agree with everyone else this spot will never reach 12 foot. it does close out on u a lot but then again it is jersey.

What is this? - This spot never gets up to 12ft. At best, with a real strong pressure system like a hurricane we can get maybe 10ft at the most. This spot deffinately isn't only good at low tide either. If the surf is anything above 4ft and bigger the waves start closing out leaving you with real short rides, only sometimes its good at low. Don't listen to this guy. Go to the other label on the spot list that lists Ship Bottom. That one is more accurate.

Stupid - No wave has ever lined up here for even 100m - whoever wrote this is probably 10 years old and has never seen good surf.

By anonymous , 21-06-2001

This is wrong - Use the other Ship Bottom submission as your guide. This guy must be pumping his local spot. I surf here all the time and it is rarely good - 2 stars at most and this place definitely can't hold 12 foot. I've seen it maxed and closing at just overhead on a long period hurricane swell.
