The water is fine, it's just silts that makes it brown after a storm.

Sewage pipe broke about 30 minutes South of Belmar. We literally were surfing in turds. Now I have a sinus infection......

Yeah, not an issue so much here. Though I've heard Saffas say the same thing...certainly wouldn't go in the water in KZN or the Transkei if it looked like that though...ha

90% of NJ surfers are sharks, so no worries.
