Surfer experiences slushy waves on Long Beach Island

Chris Huch had an unusual experience in the ocean off Long Beach Island on Tuesday.

“The ocean was a bit chilly today,” said Huch, a southern Ocean County resident.

That’s an understatement.

Huch surfed through slush and ice chunks– or “slurpee shorebreak” — which he says “made for a neat experience” in Harvey Cedars.
