Snow Surfers - My9 New Jersey

Snow Surfers

Posted: Updated:
Ocean City, New Jersey (My9NJ) - If you think surfing is only for the summer time, think again. Brothers Rob and Chris Kelly are professional surfers who say that a storm is the best time to catch a wave in New Jersey and that’s exactly what they did in Ocean City, New Jersey yesterday.

"Pretty much, these are the days that we get waves. Bad weather, cold, wind, that’s what generates waves for us in Jersey, so we kind of need to come out when the weather is like this ‘cuz that’s when the waves are the best” Rob said.

These brothers have surfed in far more places than just New Jersey, including: Asia, Europe, Central and South America, and Hawaii. Unfortunately, it’s not always the safest conditions to get into the water, especially during a snow storm.

“You can get knocked out by your board and freeze to death within twenty-minutes,” Chris said.

In fact this is something that amateur surfers shouldn’t try, but the Kelly brothers have it covered. Rob is 24 years-old and a professional surfer for Billabong. Chris is 22 years-old and a professional surfer for Vizsla.

    Should New Jersey towns get into the mortgage business? Two long-time Irvington New Jersey residents, Mary Whetstone and Yves Louis, say that the mortgage crisis in town has gotten out of control and something has to be done. “Every block there’s one or two or three, foreclosures on it. And if it keeps on like this, every house is going to be foreclosed,” Whetstone said.

You’ve seen the Chasers in planes, blimps, boats and often recording in their cars. But have no fear; the Chasers are not putting themselves or fellow motorists at risk by driving and recording themselves at the same time.

    Carmageddon, the lord of all traffic nightmares was predicted yesterday morning due to the closure of the northbound Pulaski Skyway. What was supposed to historically be the worst Monday commute ever, thankfully turned out to be just the opposite. Now many motorists are wondering what all the fuss was about.
