My name is Dave. I'm 34 and just started getting serious about bodyboarding about a year ago (after a rather fun week in Cape May). I live up in Northern NJ and am about 45 minutes or so from the nearest shore points (the distances don't bother me except that I don't live closer ).

Usually, I have been making early morning trips down to Manasquan, Point Pleasant or Long Branch on a Saturday or Sunday and would look for a quiet place to practice.

I would really like to get to get to know the people in this community as well as find some good spots in NJ with some people who have no problems helping show beginners the ropes. It would be greatly appreciated. I sense this could be a lot more fun with like-minded individuals than just me being out there alone.

I hope to speak with some of you soon. Thanks everyone.
