2 Geography -Inlet is where the entire Manasquan watershed drains into the Ocean, and forms the border between Point Pleasant and Manasquan -Jetties were built by the Army Corp of Engineers to prevent erosion -Littoral drift has lead to very different sandbars on the two sides of the inlet -Jenk’s vs The Inlet

3 Jenks vs. Inlet

4 Weather and Wave Climate -Weather and wave quality is very variable -massive temperature swings (30’s- high 70’s) - Air temps from sub-zero to over 100 -boardshorts to 5-mils - Obviously Most consistent surf comes in the fall and winter - -Hurricanes produce some of the best swells - Summers plagued by flat spells and and seabreeze - Winter can have blizzards and Noreasters - While the best swells come in the fall and winter, spring and summer can still produce fun swells with good weather

5 Mechanics -Mostly a south swell spot - South swells dominant during La Nina - Breaks at 1 ft. but can hold waves as big as they can get in the Atlantic - Long jetty is the key -

6 The Break - 3 distinct peaks - First peak: Closest to the jetty, usually biggest and most localized - Second peak: Slightly inside first peak, smaller, mellower crowd - Third peak/ The left: Down the beach near the smaller groin. Can be fun, especially on smaller days - Since the beach replenishment, There can be a legitimate left off first and second peak

7 Locals The inlet is known for being a hotbed of talent and extremely localized Scott Duerr, Adam Holloway, Chris Rooney, Andrew Rooney, Pat Schmidt, Justin Taylor, Sam Hammer, Corey Kiesel Adam Holloway

9 Pat Schmidt Chris Rooney

10 Travel costs - Usually just gas, parkway tolls and a beach badge -Not really a spot worth taking a long trip to -Consistency is the main problem - Can fly into Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Newark, JFK Boards To Ride -Literally anything you can think of, the wave is easy to surf -Expect to see longboards, funshapes, fishes, high performance shortboards

11 Hazards -Locals -Beginners on longboards -Fisherman -Beach badges -Sun burn -Parking tickets
