This is obvioulsy a novelty wave but if you ride it you can proudly say "I surfed New Jersey's West Coast". It's amazing the delaware bay is big enough to actually provide a fetch when the west winds are howling. So if you wanna surf freezing cold 3ft chop when the ocean is flat in january just come here when there's a hard west wind (over 20kts). I've heard that on big south swells or hurricane swells that swell gets back in here and provides some fun lefts even as far north as the ferry but I've personally never witnessed that. I surfed it last year in my six mil on a fish and yes it was actually rideable BUT extremely unpleasant conditions. Also watch out for old pilings and rebar on the bottom especially near the ship! Oh, and if the tide is going out be careful not to get sucked too far east, the combination of a hard west wind and outgoing tide could literally suck you out sea.
There isn't much more to say, I've never seen anyone else that remotely resembles a surfer in the area even though the ocean side is obviously well surfed.
Remember the best conditions coincide with 39 degree air, 35 degree water, and a 30kt west wind in your face, maybe that's why i've never seen anyone else there?
