The 2013-2014 winter was one of the toughest in the Northeast’s recent memory. It was freezing, gray, windy, stormy, snowy and absolutely firing. Seriously, look at some of the waves Sam Hammer, Chris Kelly, Andrew Gesler, Ryan Daly, Tom Ihnken, Clay Pollioni and Al Pollioni got over the winter. It’s non-debatably world class, which raises the question: Is New Jersey the world’s next surf travel hub? Could you imagine? Cedar shake warungs selling $5 oversized slices of pizza with cheese fries. Mr. Ketut driving you around all day, except his name isn’t really Ketut, it’s Tony and he owns a gun. Complete suburban nirvana….eh, probably not. Too cold.
