LOL. I used to be one of those ny'ers renting a beach house in squann many years ago. I never took my boards down with me though...
I think Kdiddy is a kid... probably wanted to try his "locals only" pants on! Anyways... I live on the ocean here in LI... come surf here, I dont care! lol.
MOST Benny's are kooks who get pulled out into rips and get in your way
Im not saying that every Benny's a kook, im saying the trashy guys who do get in your way, are kooks
You know who cares where you are from. If you're on it...you're on it. If you're respectful to others....you're respectful to others. Area and zip codes don't really matter. Just find your own peak...spread out...first come...first served. Do give dudes who have dedicated their lives to a certain spot your respect. If you haven't surfed that jetty for the last twenty years then don't think you're entitled to peak positioning. Pay your dues, work you way up, and show you're dedicated and serious. The rewards will come your way.
Oh skippy, do Bennies really get in your way that much? Now, I will admit your Bennies are WAY worse than my "shoobies." I can see your point there. Maybe you are right. Oh God I'm having Seaside Heights summer time flash backs right now......OMG..........NOOOO, another steriod abusing, gold chain wearing, Iroc driving, slick backed greasy hair guy..........oh no there's some Newark drug gang members over there...........OMG is that fat chubby girl, with the Elvira hair-do wearing any pants? Scary, scary place. Dang that place makes Wildwood seem quaint, if you ignore the projects and stuff. Wildwood is more inner-city, in ceratain areas, but isn't quite the freak show.
Growing up in Cape May for about the first 25 years of my life, then moving to Monmouth County for the last 20 or so, I can compare the South Jersey tourists from the North Jersey tourists pretty accurately...
South Jersey tourists are mostly from PA and Canada, are relatively friendly, admire the locals for their laid back lifestyle, and like to hook up with them whenever possible. I looked forward to them coming to town, and looked forward to them leaving.
North Jersey tourists are mostly from the wealthy and/or urban areas of NORTH North Jersey and New York, are extremely UNfriendly, either look down on the locals or think they are locals, and look for others of their ilk to hook up with. I only look forward to them leaving.
Maybe things have changed in South Jersey since I lived there, but that was my take...
i had some great waves tonight in vb at 1st st. there were only about 5 people out and it cleaned up nicely with some waist to chest lines.
Yo, really? Good deal. I haven't watched The Weather Channel yet today, but I'm hoping something pops up this way tomorrow. I need to get wet desparately. It's raining here but we don't have any wind brewing yet. Gotta check the weather man.
Wow, I'm stoked for you Mr. Super Fish. I love the sunset sessions. Especially winter ones......ahhh the quiet peaceful feeling you get at dusk in the winter after a surf.
Oh, when it's cold out, isn't putting the heat on your car to the feet the best thing ever? I just love that....get all cozy and shoot
