Just like South Bay surfers in California, New Jersey locals can’t get enough of the fall season. Water temperatures remained in the 70’s until November, with perfect a-frames and barrels dominating the lineup, and suddenly no one had time for work.
NJ surf photographer Matthew Lang captured the best of the head-high plus surf that greeted the East Coast during quite a few swells this season. Local surfers Sam Hammer, Clay Pollioni, Brian Robinson, Brendan Tighe, and Tommy Ihnken scored beautiful weather and killer waves in Lavalette and Bayhead, New Jersey.
