    From what I'm hearing, the dunes did help a bit in Ventnor. Everything I'm hearing is second hand right now, though. This waiting is killing us. We want to get in there and start cleaning up!

    "That's an old man's board, Chandler." Lance, what a douche.

    I'm interested to see what this breakwater ends up looking like. You gotta love these sand pumping projects: sand gets pumped in to AC and Ventnor. Within a few weeks/months/years, it ends up down in...

    I started wearing plugs last fall. I actually like them in the colder weather. It seems like they keep me warmer, as odd as that sounds. I've used both Mack's silicone putty and Doc's ProPlugs. I...

    $530 doesn't sound ridiculous if it's in good shape, but I have to agree with the others that a 180mm prime is short for surf photography.

    That's a nice lens, though, and the right buyer could...

    Before I spent much time here, I wondered about the negative effects of the proximity of Atlantic City, too, and I have to say that I just don't see any problems from it. The crime in AC is...

    Hydration and stretching are definitely key to preventing cramps. I've also found that paying attention to my breathing helps with cramps. Sometimes, when I'm paddling to get into a wave, I realize...
