Greenlight in Manasquan is downsizing, and brand new boards are selling for stupid cheap... literally dumping off current inventory to get back to basics. (Long story short... he spent about a month down in Tortolla and did some soul searching.)
I was in there today, and there are about a half dozen Inlets left in the 5'10 to 6'0 range... all hpsb's for average to above average skill level surfers. One sold today, and at THREE FIFTY they're not going to be around for long.
Those who know me know I have nothing to gain from this financially... just thought I'd put it out there: Sick boards, brand new, for stupid cheap... for reasons I just can't explain. Just only here to say, if you're looking for a new board, jump on it quick.
Final heads up: There's a board there called the Havoc... a 6 channel quad fin that's ideal for small summer surf. Take a close look at that one if you're in the shop. The rest are more traditional shortboard shapes, designed specifically for local surf - the Jetty Rat for smaller waves, and the Jerz, which is more of an all-arounder. There are other boards in there, too... some alternative shapes and longboards, but the Inlet boards are straight up performance shortboards.
Everyone get over there if you can. I bought the board from yesterday and it was probably the best deal I've ever gotten on a surfboard. I paid the price of a used board for a brand new one that was shaped and glassed by two guys that really know what they're doing. I'll try to post some pictures eventually, but I cannot wait to surf this board it looks insanely fun.
They're right on 71 (Parker Ave.) just two blocks north of Main Street. You don't need to call ahead... "off season" hours are noon to I think 5pm or so (???). Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Summer hours they stay open later.
All that preaching about "supporting local," and "what the role of a surf shop should be"... here's a chance to walk the walk. Get in there this weekend. You'll never get a better deal, ever.
And just to show these shapes are proven by guys surfing at the competitive level... here's two sponsored riders:
