Surf the Jersey Shore's Winter Waves


Added by Stephen Krawiec

See New Jersey's beautiful beaches. Lots of small towns nearby. Great surf in the winter. If you know where to look, you can find some great secluded waves.

Head to the Jersey Shore to hunt for some of the best winter waves. Depending on the conditions, you'll score some amazing local breaks or spend a lot of time in the car hunting for a good spot—try to head out with a local and you're sure to find a break away from the crowds, from Sandy Hook to Island Beach State Park.

Some awesome surfers here

There are some really impressive cold-weather surfers that hit these areas (seen "Under an Arctic Sky"?)! Come with your camera/long lens to capture some of the action.

Very cold but very fun

Jersey isn't typically known for its surfing, but if it were to be, it would be in the wintertime

Love going down to Jersey for winter swell. It's shoreline is a magnet for great waves. It's a quick drive from Brooklyn but leave early, pack warm clothes and a thermos with either coffee, tea or even soup for a quick warm up after the session.
