No big secret! It's Robert Moses Field #5. When it's good, it's good. The camera doesn't give the whole story in a still photo. There were several shortboarders riding this shorebreak and you had to be very quick to make it. Two hours later,the tide dropped enough so it started breaking outside. I stayed out about 300 yds by myself and although the wait was 15 to 20 minutes, some solid 6 ft sets would come through and I rode right to the beach. Very sweet session and the water was beautiful.
