Brigantine is really fickle. I would have def recommended going into AC or Ocean City. its still a fun wave but AC has a lot more power..a lot!!
i know zach's trip to maui was more "honeymoon" based, but if I were to go down there for a real surf trip, what would be the ideal island to go to? Oahu sounds sick, but I dont know alot about the other places

The first few days I was there, there was some windswell wrapping around the North Shore from the Windward side and the Hana side was bigger but super choppy and unsurfable looking, and there were a few nooks and crannies breaking up around where Jaws is.
Word to the wise... there are 7,298,875 people that are all trying to surf SUPs on Maui. The locals were all screaming and bashing Laird and going on rampages about all the mainland transplant SUPers. They are EVERYWHERE... and they CANNOT SURF!....
I was owning the SUPers on a 9footer LB... So, fear not, but im telling you, there are a MILLION of them at every public spot.....
I dont know whats its called, but there is a spot out in the middle of a harbor, arounds some moorings that was going off for a little 3 footer. Sick reef. I will PM you where it was, and how we paddled out. But all the people told me before we went "It is locals only" blah blah... But everyone there was cool. They actually held a Grom contest there in mid week and this little 100 pound kids were boosting off this little 1 footer reef break. it was sick!
Trust me, the surf in Maui was sick... I just got minimal swell the whole 10 days. They had said a couple weeks before it was epic, so you will probably score....
I usually found places with only a couple guys out. So I could follow their lead on paddling out and where the reefs were peaking, but there are tons of breaks with like 100 guys on it that you can just walk right up to.

I played the worst golf of my life in Brigantine.
Scored epic surf in Brigantine.
Ate a sick dinner and met Bobby Flay in his Steak house at the Borgata.
Played Craps (for the first time ever) with my brother and my friends and we all ended up making like 1500 - $2000 each. And we all started maying $15 bets. We ran the Borgata craps tables for like 5 hours, made a killing... Ended up in some CRAZY, CRAZY strip club down in AC somehwere... Dirty Dirty whores, but we balled out with all the money we made.... Went back to the hotel at like 4am... Played craps again and made like $500 more.
Went to bed...
Woke up... Surfed again... Bounced...
It was an EPIC bachelor party... and I got nothing but love for JERSEY! I have never been, and I lived in MD my whole life... I was impressed with the surf. Impressed with city of AC... I was stoked.... Couldnt have gone better....
And my wedding in MD was picture perfect too. Not a cloud in the sky. On the chesapeake bay... 88 degrees, no humidity... It was PERFECT... I was so worried about weather etc at the end of august, and it was just PERFECT! and then the day after we left for Maui, the hurricanes started hitting the coast... So it was perfect timing.
