Ventnor Pier Surf Guide

Ventnor Pier in New Jersey is a quite exposed beach/Jetty break that has consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the northeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Often Crowded. Watch out for rips, rocks, man-made danger (buoys etc...) and locals.
