Love going down to Jersey for winter swell. It's shoreline is a magnet for great waves. It's a quick drive from Brooklyn but leave early, pack warm clothes and a thermos with either coffee, tea or even soup for a quick warm up after the session.

Kayak to Herring Island

Starting at the small beach at the end of Bay Blvd, paddle heading south. You will need to pass through the boat canal so keep an eye out for speeding boats.
