Hey DosXX we'll be at the break by your office tomorrow, south end probably (Sun) around 9-10...

A couple things not mentioned- Cipro for "Baja Belly", good waterproof tape (J&J) in the first aid kit....
If it helps with your decision - Every year at the Surf Expo in Fla they have a "shape off" among some of the better known East Coast shapers.
