    I have to say I dont mind the noise and crowds when the Shoobies ( That SNJ's term) & Guidos come down. They are here just enough to want labor day to come and it breaks up the Post Nuculare Fallout most of the Summer towns in NJ have in the winter.

    a lot of benny's are annoying, but most of the guidos just flat out bother me. benny's by far i would take over guidos any day of the year.

    I'm really excited to find out by reading these posts what I would be called. Found out I wasn't a benny, but I'm only at Stone Harbor from Memorial Day to early October and I come from Maryland. Is there a term for that?

    And believe it or not I'm better than some of the locals I surf with. Despite what my previous avatar might tell you.

    I am also very curious about my status at the beaches of New Jersey. I used to live near Red Bank but then was forced to move when my parents decided to go to northern New Jersey. My grandparents still live in Southern Monmouth County. I have been coming to the beach and surfing all of my life at the same spot. I get up early and make the hour long journey to the beach where I surf several times a week, even in the dead of winter. I never litter or cause any problems. I don't take waves that are not mine, I wait my turn. With that said I am also a pretty good surfer seeing as I go out all through the winter. What are you thoughts on my situation? I am curious to see.

    Back in the day when I was still seeing my dad, and my grandmother was still alive she lived in Brielle just a couple of blocks from the Brielle Rd drawbridge. It was my grams summer home for many years until the early 90s when she moved there permanently until she died in 99. So I spent a lot of time there as a baby I guess between 83-85 in the summer. Every summer from about 95 until 2000 I spent there with my gram, and dad, and just my dad after she died. He would always say even though I was from Bergen County, and lived in Bergen County that technically I wasn't a benny, because my family owns a house in town, and pays taxes there. When he was a kid he grew up in Bergen County, but his parents owned the house there even though he did not live in town year round, so he said he didn't consider himself a benny, and no one called him one ever.

    So basically I was a loner I only hung out with my dad, and he was fun to hang out with, and there was only 19 years between us, I never made any friends down the shore, but most of the kids knew my face over the years even though they never saw me in school. So I don't get too wrapped up in the benny thing no more. I am trying to figure out the official benny/shoobie line. In Monmouth County it's all strictly benny's as it is in most Ocean County towns, but I have heard shoobie a few times on LBI. Everywhere in Atlantic, and Cape May it's all strictly shoobie. I used to live in Sea Isle, so I used to hear nothing, but shoobie.

    LOL. Your last avatar showed that you can hardly stand on a surfboard

    Summer has definitely started. Every day I have to blow my horn at someone with NY or PA plates.

    You would be called a "Slocal" or "Shoobie" for summer local. I used to live in OCNJ for the summers and that was what I was called. Now I'm a local, but I'm much farther north of OCNJ.
