    I'm not sure, mid eighties maybe because that was around when they put up those toll booths. Before the big toll plaza off of 1st jetty I think there was a single or double lane toll booth that you could trick the operators pretty easily to let you in. You just had to say "gonna check the waves" and assure them that you would come back and pay if it was good. Of course we never did, lol. That's the way it looked my whole life from the mid 70's forward until the day the hook died.

    That toll plaza ( I assume it's still there) was built on an old parking lot. There was a huge lot there back then and all the kids from Middletown and Atlantic Highlands would hang on that beach. There were coolers of beer everywhere and girls. We would bum beers, from the older kids and oggle the girls. Good clean 80s fun.

    Daisy Duke was one of my all-time favorite Boneur Idols (no arginine necessary). Did I ever say how much I like trashy chicks?

    Anyways, my wife watches a soap and Catherine Bach occasionally plays a mom of one of the regular characters. You'd never recognize her now, at least 200+ lbs

    Ah.......the 80s. Started surfing in 82. Purchased this board that summer. 6-Channel, Double Wing Pin, Twin Fin. Traded it in to get a Thruster in July of 1985. In July of 2015 I checked the surfboard listings on Craigslist as I do periodically looking for vintage boards and the second listing down was my first board. Drove 2 hours and handed the guy $100 bucks for it. A bit sunburned but in tact almost 30 years to the day from when I traded it in. Rode my first real waves on this board and did my first ding repairs on it. Good 80s snapshot.....short shorts and sleeveless shirts. Ha!!!!!!

    Holy crap that's really cool. Pretty sure I wouldn't buy back my first board no matter how good the condition was, I wanted to forget that thing when I first owned it. What are the odds of running across that board again, astronomical I would say. Check out the post number if your post, evil!

    Well my first board was a delaminated Hansen single fin found under a porch.
    Only rode it for that first summer of 1980.
    Then on Christmas of 1980, under the Christmas tree was a Rise single fin.
    I wish I still had that board.
    Rise made some sweet boards (clunker by todays standards) and had a decent size factory right here in Long Branch from the late 60's until '81.

    Thats awesome! But you paid $3 over the asking price

    I'd love to get my first board back. A yellow G&S twin with a sick Indian head painted on it

    I had a Rise, bought it in 85 or 86 had it stolen off my car at sandy hook in 89. I loved that board

    My first board was a used Lis Fish that I bought from Select Surf Shop for $90 in 1978.

    Board would be easily worth over a grand today, in any condition.

    The surf shop I'm talking about was before Moceans. Mario was an OK dude... a little bitter toward the end. When the replenishment killed the waves, he went out of business... Poor focker had to deliver pizzas... no sh!t. He had diabetes and wasn't well for a while, but I think he bounced back at one point. I've lost touch with him since.

    A friend of mine... last name is Short... said there was a Hobie team the shop sponsored right on the border of MB and North LB. Any info on that or pictures would be awesome. Bill Rosenblatt knows the history of the surfing culture in Monmouth County pretty good. He should get on here...

    I was shocked when he went out of business. How could a surf shop with an awesome name like "Moceans" go out of business?
