I live and surf in Belmar. I won't lie, I took one look at the ocean that day and knew it was best for me to sit out. 15-20 ft waves... only the best can handle those conditions! After spending a day at work, I simply wasn't mentally prepared to handle massive 44-degree waves...

However, a few Jersey Shore surfing greats made the most of it...

What about the surfers?

There are a handful of great Jersey Shore surfers but the two that stick out the most are Ben Gravy & Rob Kelly. These professionals live the dream and they really do an awesome job putting New Jersey on the map for surfing. The Jersey Shore surfing community is very thankful to have these dudes represent all of us. Cheers fellas!

Check out the wave Ben Gravy was able to ride on Monday, January 17th...

HAHA! I mean come on!! How insane is that?! Some are saying that was a 22ft wave! Gravy said in his most recent vlog that it was easily the biggest wave he has ever surfed in New Jersey. Totally stoked for Ben! Make sure you check out his Youtube page... CLICK HERE - FOR THE DREAM.

We can't forget about the wave Rob Kelly was able to get on the same day... check it out below...

Totally insane! A perfect 10! Congrats to Rob for snagging that wave! Make sure you follow his page. Believe it or not, he has been polar plunging every single day in 2022. Wild!

At the end of the day, a HUGE Thank You to winter storm Izzy for creating a memorable day at the Jersey Shore... The surfing community is stoked and hoping for another winter swell before the season is over! See you out there...
