With over 300,000 views and counting, many people have already seen the dramatic surf video above that has been making the rounds on social media. The footage, shot by Dark Fall Productions, was posted earlier this week by Surfline with the caption “Barrel of the year in New Jersey.”

What you may not have known was that it was shot on Long Beach Island.

Tuesday’s waves, courtesy of Winter Storm Stella, provided plenty of highs for surfers on LBI. Look for a full report on this epic surf experience in next week’s Liquid Lines column by Jon Coen. Meanwhile, more video of Tuesday’s waves, shot by SandPaper photographer Jack Reynolds, is below.
