Rob Kelly // Q&A

March 13th, 2013 by John Zanussi

Shortly after last month’s Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico, we caught up with New Jersey surfer Rob Kelly. Due to his recent success in contests, including a semi-final result in Puerto Rico, Rob has been making a name for himself. We had the liberty of asking the 23-year-old Ocean City native about his time in PR, his career with Billabong, his website, FrothyLip, and how Jersey is doing after Sandy. More »

Dude Climbs Submerged Roller Coaster in NJ

January 9th, 2013 by John Zanussi

Yesterday, Christopher Angelo thought it would be a good idea to paddle his way out to the semi-submerged Jet Star Roller Coaster in a canoe and hoist the American Flag. The Jet Star was knocked from Casino Pier in Seaside Heights into the ocean by Hurricane Sandy. I give this guy some credit for the patriotic stunt  once the New Jersey police showed up they got him to come down and arrested him once they got him to the shore. More »

Hurricane Sandy Relief Fundraisers

November 12th, 2012 by Samantha Rupert

Hurricane Sandy was the most devastating storm to hit New York and New Jersey since 1938. It was also the costliest storm to hit our region, racking up damage costs comparable to Hurricane Katrina. Many families along the Jersey Shore and Long Island lost their homes and the death toll totaled more than 110 people. Now, about two weeks after the storm, there are still people powerless, homeless, hungry and freezing on Long Island and in New Jersey. More »

Post-Sandy Nor’easter Drainers

November 9th, 2012 by John Zanussi

Just over a week after Hurricane Sandy hit the coast a nor’easter barreled through the mid-atlantic and northeast bringing more wind and lots of snow. As with most weather systems that move across our area the storm also sent waves. While still recovering from the two storms Sam Hammer, Mike Gleason, Tommy Ihnkin, and friends were able to get into the water and not let the waves go to waste in New Jersey. More »

New Jersey Shark Feeding Frenzy

August 18th, 2012 by Samantha Rupert

New Jersey photographer Tom Lynch, owner of, filmed a rare sight on Aug. 16. What appeared to be only about 50 yards offshore from a beach in Ocean County, brown sharks and sand tiger sharks were flopping out of the water attempting to ravage a school of bunker fish for dinner. It’s always interesting to see sharks so close to shore in the Northeast, let alone propelling themselves out of the water while feeding. This is a nice edition to our site for Shark Week! More »
