    military bases and surf potential

    yeah thats right in going to make a aggro rant. this cane season has pissed me off we havnt had a good swell in a month...which leads me to say im done east coast. even worse si has all these dumb roy Stuart threads saying he cant change ankle high waves like us from the south do. this is just depressing..im outta here and trying to transfer to active pretty much my only option. any marine or coastie vets on here to throw a word in which branch has the best potential for surf? i mean Okinawa seems like it would have some good surf and ive been told by some coast guard dudes they they head down to cr sometimes and stay a few days to resupply very had decision to make.

    I think there's some base.....airforce?.......out in Central California that has a killer beachbreak........

    Wrightstown, by Fort Dix in Jersey has crack and it's an hour away from LBI which will make you love the east coast all over again. You can be buds with Mr. Sniffer.

    Just make sure you're sober before talking to a recruiter or a detailer.

    Coast Guard (Guardies) have walk-in access to the point from the lighthouse....it's theirs, not the Navy's. Navy station is further inside, but have roads that lead to the point. I worked there during 81-82 and scored back in the day. The place is a zoo now, it looks like a harbor full of zodiacs on any south swell. Way better to take a boat to any of the 6-8 reefs between this place and the unnamed semi-point south of Nazboland.

    Dude, I was stationed in camp Pendleton and I surfed maybe a handful of times in 5 years. As a marine living between Oceanside and san Clemente I rarely had time or the opportunity to surf. But after i finished my active duty i surfed a week straight in del mar, then came home to jersey and had to face life after realizing i had some issues from combat. If you're thinking about joining,surf spots shouldn't really be on your radar, youl have bigger things to deal with. And if you join the corps, they tell you where you are going, not the other way around. Good luck. If you want to know what being a marine is all about, i wrote a book about my time in Iraq, its called The Song Each Bullet Sings. If you get it, let me know. If not, god bless for your commitment to this country.
