This month we have something extra special, a specially curated collection of New Jersey surf shots from professional photojournalist Michael Baytoff. Michael has been out there shooting the biggest swells April has served up, and here is a handpicked collection of his photos, starting with April 3rd 2019…

So that wraps up the start of the month, but another solid swell arrived on April 15th. Yeah that’s right, Tax Day, you know nature doesn’t care for the IRS!

Halfway through April and with another swell already on the radar, Michael was out again shooting the following week. Here are just a few of the shot he snapped off at Long Beach Island, Ship Bottom, and Beach Haven, all taken on what happened to be Earth Day.
