I've surfed NJ a fair amount in the past, but I haven't done a tremendous amount of exploration - so I'm looking forward to uncovering some secrets.
It is definitely a faster pace up here, which is logical due to new york influence. Yesterday, I went west of the parkway, up 34N, and it was all farmland and it looked like some cool park areas. So, I was stoked to find the parks. I was talking with someone up north a bit, and he was telling me about some really good mountain biking - I am thinking I might have to get into that up here. I tried it in Delaware once, and it was a blast and an awesome workout.
If anyone else has any goto restaurants/bars/etc, let me know! Where I am in Tinton Falls, it seems like there is something around every corner.
[QUOTE=Swellinfo;81798]Thanks for the welcome fellas!
really good mountain biking
MTB ing is a must!!! I am failry new to the norhtern part of NJ and have discovered both great surfing and mtbing spots so hiy me up you you need some input on either...
You or a lot closer to some good snowboarding also,
cool... What is at Hartshorne? Looks like a big park?
hartshorne is very big and has a couple different entrances. i'd strongly suggest the rocky point entrance. it's much more secluded and in my opinion better for hiking. it's basically the corner of land at the intersection of the shrewbury and navesink rivers. from a few spots you can see both rivers and the ocean. you can string together a very long and strenuous hike if you'd like. i've been going there for years and know the place like the back of my hand. the mtn bike trails are top notch as well.
when the weather warms, i'd also suggest kayaking around the navesink. it's really nice, especially up and down teh coast of hartshorne.
