    Surf and College?

    Thinking about a few colleges...UNCW, Coastal Carolina, Stockton, TCNJ maybe... Does anyone have any recommendations for a good surf community school or with surf teams/etc. Just looking for a school that has a large population of similar minded beach goers, spongers, surfers... Not looking to go any further than SC and East Coast preferably. Thanks oh and I live in NJ near Manasquan if that gives better insight.

    HAh. Why in the hell would you waste your money on a surf trip to somewhere thats no better than the northeastern seaboard in the winter and is even colder? Couldnt be to avoid crowds...In the WINTER! Go to PUERTO RICO or BARBADOS.

    Obviously you've never been to college because their harvard in Puerto Rico is considered to a community college in the states....btw I want to go to a decent school if you didnt get the hint.

    Come to UNCW and you will have no regrets. 10-15 min. from the beach, warm most of the year, and lots of people who actually surf. Even when there aren't waves I still make it to the beach 3-4 times a week. I love it here and definitely made the right choice staying in Wilmington.

    Ive really been deciding on either there or staying in NJ.. Im going through college on basically the Armys paycheck by joining the reserves, is there bases within a 1 hour distance? And do you know any guys that go there that are from Jersey and what their perspective is on it because for me its about a 10 hour drive and I know Im gonna want to see my mom and brother everynow and then. Thanks for the input guys one of the biggest decisions of my young life so far

    Gnaractually is from Dirty Jer-z and attends UNCW, maybe you should ask him.

    Closest Army base is in Fayetteville--closer to Raleigh.

    But, in the spirit of my remaining consistent: DO NOT GO TO UNCW!!!! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

    I don't like 85% of the people it attracts--mainly those who instantly become "surfers" the moment they move here. My comment was somewhat tongue-in-cheek though. I'm sure you're cool--especially if we're not surfing the same break. :P

    When I was at the University of Rhode Island there was a fairly sizable group of people and they had a surf club. For a super small state it packs a pretty nice array of quality breaks in. I went to grad school at Monmouth and it opened me up to a lot of different spots in that area that I'm sure you're already familiar with. Just make sure you can afford either- get lots of scholarships if you can.

    and ps if you're looking for quality waves i would stay away from Coastal Carolina-- from what i've read and my own experience SC just doesn't have very many quality waves
