buying a gun would be a big waste of money unless your a sponsored pro that gets boards handed to them.the east coast has no use for a gun unless your paddlin outer sandbars that can hold 15ft.another thing u must think about,surfing waves like that,your going to break boards like twigs.i made the mistake of tryin to surf a gun my 1st 2 years when i had no clue about surfing and there were nobody else around to tell me so,until i went to belmar one day and they looked at my like check this kook out lol.traded it in and been good ever since
Are there even any breaks in jersey where one would need a gun? There's like 2 days a year that I even pull mine out of the rafters to paddle it out and that's only to ride Black's or Sunset Cliffs. The rest of the time, if it's a bigger than normal and kind of closed out day,I stick with a 7'6" thruster. Zman, just get a 7' fun board/egg, you won't go wrong with it.
