Today looked a lot more like June than January, weather and water color.

Dave Nilsen

Still probably my favorite day from the past two months. It was pretty overcast when I got to the beach so I got an hour surf session in. When it looked like the clouds were starting to break I grabbed my camera and swam out. This was right when I got in the water and the first glimpses of sun for the day.

Seems like this winter there's been a lot more days where the sun decides to come out for Golden hour. An example from two weeks ago.

Last couple New Jersey Waves Calendars available at @rightcoastsurfshop only $15.

Shot my 50mm on manual focus for 4 hours last week. Some how this one ended up alright, guess I'm lucky the ring slid to infinity.

Was pretty stoked on the sunrise this morning. I think I was more stoked that my lens wasn't fogging up and I actually got to shoot it unlike yesterday.

No entrance or exit.

A day for the Goofy footers after non stop south swells since last month.

Unknown locked into a solid one a few weeks ago during one of many south swells.

Fun swell today, lasted until after sunset. Hopefully winter decides to show up soon.

Dave Nilsen

Combo swells usually mean A-Frames so let the hype begin.

South swells have been the reg for this December.

One of my favorite shots I've taken in 2016, Kai Barger deep in a super hollow one at Cloudbreak.

A couple fun ones this afternoon, was stoked it lasted long enough to get a session in before I shot.

Pretty close to being in the wrong place to be when the lip lands there.

Dave Nilsen

Green waves and golden hour.

As we start winter today here's one last look back at Fall. @robkellysurf getting super shacked from Hurricane Matthew back in October.

First day of winter started off with a 💥🌞.

Empty A-Frames are the best.

Lots of color in last nights sunset.

Dave Nilsen

Go for glory and pack the closeout or try to exit it through the doggy door? Pretty sure @sseeland packed the closeout.

I heard there were some drainers today but this was Monday.

Dave Nilsen

Cool clouds the other night at sunset. 4 shot panorama of J street in Seaside park.

Dave Nilsen

Pretty flat last night but the sky had some cool color. Hands went numb pretty quickly even with gloves on that wind will get ya.

Dave Nilsen

I've been thoroughly enjoying the waves that have come along with the cold weather, but let's not forget that sometimes this happens in the Summer. Seaside Park, June 2015.

Looking out of a barrel at @bengravyy getting barreled.

Standing in the middle of the road in Island Beach State Park last night when the clouds almost cleared.

Some excellent lighting last night at sunset.
