I like to picture this wave talking like Funk Master Flex and as soon as the lip hits there's the explosion sound effect along with a bunch of air horns going off.

The @nysea_surf @clifbar cold shot challenge is now extended into April. Hopefully another one of those solid April swells like the past few years. πŸŽ₯ @etanblatt_digital_media

I'll get back to the insane amount of Stella photos in another day or two. For now here's golden hour on a south swell back in December.

New Jersey wasn't the only place that scored from Stella. Probably a lot bigger than it looks being that the closest buoy was 20ft at 14 seconds .

Makeable? That question came up a few times Tuesday morning.

Thanks @jayrut_photo for the screen grab and being the first one out in the water and motivating me to swim. That lip landed right on top of me and blew my fins off. It put me in the perfect position to go over the falls on the next wave and get washed back to the beach. Sometimes you gotta pay to play.

@joeypinheiro going for glory at another spot that went nuclear during winter storm Stella on Tuesday.

@robkellysurf killed it on Tuesday. Here's one of many barrels he got from @surfline s recent feature on Winter Storm Stella.

Linked up with @bengravyy on this one the other day. As seen on @easternsurfmag s feature on winter storm Stella.

Unknown today. Definitely best swell of the winter so far.

Probably the most over exposed place to shoot the Milky Way in Island Beach, but I had already got the other shots I wanted this night so I decided to give it a go.

Two waves or one wave with two barrels?

Stoked to see this shot of @gilly732 in the March issue of @easternsurfmag .

A very glassy day with no one out last January. I tried surfing this day but got shooting anxiety because the water was so clear so I ran home grabbed my camera and shot until the wind went south.

@joeypinheiro boosting last month when we took a trip up north. As seen on @easternsurfmag s February wrap up gallery.

Woke up way too early to stare at the stars this morning.

Tried to catch the Milky Way this morning, unfortunately I forgot to set my alarm so I got there a little late. Still got to see it but got a little light from the sun starting to rise.

About an hour of fun this morning.

That one swell we got this winter.

An old sequence of @sseeland from a solid south swell in April 2015. Sometimes Spring makes up for a dull winter.

Was shooting empties one day a few months ago and out of no where @clay_pollioni came flying by getting shacked.

Stand up barrels are dope. Pipe January 2015.

Happy Polar Bear Plunge day. #thenameisdumass

Remember this day @titusmon ? Would have been a solid chip in if it hit the ledge. I also probably would have gotten a better shot if I stayed on the boat.

A sequence of @t_r_o_n_ getting shacked last January.

There's still a few weeks left of winter but so far it hasn't stacked up to last winter by a long shot. Hopefully the next few weeks turn on. Here's @hammered_sam in one of many barrels from a solid day last January.
