    Good Shop Selection for Suits in NJ?

    Can anyone here recommend any shops in NJ that have a good wetsuit selection? This will be my first winter surfing all the way through, and am looking to pick up a hooded 5/4/3 sometime this month. I've got an Xcel 4/3 that fits pretty well that I bought of the interwebs (Whiskey!), but since the 5/4 is going to be a significant amount of cash, I really want to be able to try on a few different models and see what is really comfortable.

    I'm in Philly, but get down to the coast 1-2 times per week and would be willing to travel to find somewhere with a good selection in stock. Any recommendations or help would be great.

    Thanks.

    Brave in Pt has an awesome selection to try stuff on. You can always price shop after that. I bought my E bomb there, but my buddy got the same suit $40 cheaper at O-hut.

    Thanks, thats the second recommendation I got for that place...I'll have to check that one out. Someone else recommended K-Coast in OCMD, I've been there before, but thats a little bit of a hike.

    Anyone else got any recommendations in NJ?

    I second Brave- last time I was in K-coast, they had about the same size selection- both bigger sized selections compared to other shops in the area. Certain shops only carry certain brands- but a shop down the road will have another brand. So if your looking for quicksilver- brave might not have it, but squan would... If you have a 4/3 already- it maybe worth it to get a 6/5/4 for the extra warmth- i never noticed a weight difference or any maneuverability issues compared to a 5/4 with the newer suits. its only warmer=extra hours in the water.

    Spellbinders in Allenhurst has a pretty good selection. The owner is always there and he is super helpful.

    Brave has lots of suits in stock, check out Eastern Lines and Spellbinders too. All have a good selection.
    We have a couple used suits in good condition at the shop for sale for cheap. Guys are trading their used suits and boards for discounts on shaping supplies lately...

    wow Greenlight! Didn't realize you guys take trade ins! Sweet! I'm going to come in there with like 5 beaters and try to get a blank...

    Check out Inlet Outlet in Squan. A couple others in the area are 3rd Ave suf shop is Spring Lad and Barewires in Spring Lake.

    Check Craigslist too bro especially if you know your size. I scored a 5/4/3 Quiksilver cypher last year brand new with tags still on it for 2 bills.
