New Jersey Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea. Move your mouse over the ocean swell symbols or the surf breaks on the coastline to see a more detailed surf forecast including wave period and wind conditions. The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour. You can animate the New Jersey Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations. Surf breaks shown along the New Jersey coastline are also listed below.

New Jersey has lots of beach breaks and point breaks, the best time to surf here is fall/winter due to hurricane season, it has long beaches with lots of jetties and piers. Typically you get lots of tourists in the summer but the surfing areas are different from the swimming areas so it doesn't effect you, that much .....Joshua Morris

Plenty of facilities and a good road network will provide access to the beaches.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
