Spring Lake Surf Guide

Spring Lake in New Jersey is an exposed beach break that has consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the west northwest and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the east northeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Beware of rips and rocks.
