    !!! Ew

    The rain the night before may have brought them in. Yesterday, the water seemed more like 80 degrees and the jelly fish were gone. A perfect day for playing in the ocean.

    Maybe a cold water upwelling. It happened earlier this summer along NJ coast too, temp dropped to 60ish and the water turned very clear and greenish. 61 is awfully cold without a wetsuit (way too cold for me). Hope it keeps getting warmer.

If you are looking to ride some of these wind swell waves, go at low tide with a long board, paddle board, or bogey board and fins. Sometimes bigger sets will roll in periodically if you're patient enough to wait.
    It was truly the most frigid water that I've ever been in. Just frigid. I got that temp from a surf report. It seemed about 10 degrees warmer today when I went in, but tons of jellyfish. It is very flat.

    My community pool here is probably similar. The few times I've gone, I just swim a little, lounge a little, and drink plenty of water.

    You've done stand up paddle boarding, haven't you?
    You might end up in the water a little, so dress to tolerate that.
    I think you've been going to the gym and doing box jumps and such? Otherwise, your legs may be sore for a few days.
    I have never done stand up paddle boarding. Kind of excited about it! Hopefully, the legs won't be too sore!
