    A few posters have said this is an exaggeration. I don't think so. When they did Long Branch in the early 90's it was a solid 15 years before I was able to ride a wave at the place where I had...

    Don't pack up the moving van just yet. North Jersey jetties definitely win this hands down. But once the Army Corp is done with the current round of sand pumping Monmouth will be pretty much the same...

    Send it back. Their customer service is great and they'll probably just send you a new suit.

    I dig your vibe, bro, and I agree with much of the sentiment. In fact, I did pretty much what you're proposing when I was in my late 20's. Dropped out, cruised and surfed and hitchhiked from Cuba to...
