No offense but Brave sold out a long time ago and is hated by most. Inlet Outlet was my local and I think they are good but I moved further north and right now, if I shop, I go to BareWires Surf Shop in Spring Lake. They're the new guy on the block and still small but so are their prices.
^ Kenny Klos? haha, he's a photographer now you'll see him with his telephoto at the inlet or girt when it's going off. Pretty sure he still owns it. Just underpays someone to completely run it for him. He travels and sits back and rakes in the dough. Especially during the Summer 50% off liquidation sale. Line goes around the block to get in the door. The best part is, if you buy the "I'm a local card" for like $40/year you get in three days before. <---- That line is even longer than the one when the sale "officially" starts.
Great shop to have as my local when growing up though. I stop in there from time to time but it seems more like a social status scene now than a place to grab some wax.
for repairs you have to go to my man Rob at OG surf shop in neptune right between asbury and bradley. The guy's a pro. I had a fin box rip out of my retro fish...he put in new future boxes(totally different size) and its like it was originally shaped and glassed with futures. He always does more work than he's asked.
Eastern lines has a pretty solid board selection. Lots of ricky carrol and JC hawaii
Spellbinders is a bitt on the pricey side. Good selection though. - al merrick central
I should probably take a gander at bare wires...I pass it on my commute
Where the hell is 3rd ave surf shop nowadays? I know it was on the main drag in spring lake for a bit but then it moved out by the circle, and now i have no idea where it is.
Stoke boka what a joke - 1200 wall hanger boards
