SURFING-The northern end of the Seaside Heights Beach provides some of the best surfing NJ has to offer. The natural sandbars create waves, which break far from the beach and maintain size and strength on their journey to shore.

SWIMMING-Seaside Heights Employs some of the top lifeguards to be found anywhere. Individual lifeguard towers are spread out the entire length. Beach goers can find surf conditions marked by flags flying. Lifeguards are on duty all hours that the beach is opened. No swimming is allowed after the lifeguards are off duty.

GREEN is a go for no warning.

YELLOW is a caution for potential strong waves or currents

RED is for danger/ swimming closed.
