About States Avenue

Also known as Gas Chambers, this is Atlantic City’s premier wave. Between the old Gardens Pier and the steel Pier, very powerful, top-to-bottom peaks will break close to the beach on a SE swell at low to mid tide.

This is one of the beaches where the Duke first surfed in 1912. It is now overshadowed by huge high-rise casinos and apparently rates as America’s favorite playground. Often crowded, strong currents, and nightmarish parking problems. Sometimes valet parking in some of the casinos is the best option.
