5'10" bing dharma or a longboard

They have a better chance at catching waves on a potato chip out there, than you do on land.    With a busy schedule, I pass on below average looking days too.  Often jealous of the people with enough free time to waste on crappy days with the wrong equipment.

I think there was an 8'6"ish used JQ at the Beach House in Bayhead, NJ.  http://beachhouseclassic.com/ 

Give them a call to see if it is still there.  I think they are open 11-5 Fri thru Monday right now.  Will have more hours real soon.

Usually in full swing by 9am.  People get there as early as 7:30.

Time for the spring board swap.  Come on down, bring your classics, longboards, retro boards and be ready to wheel and deal.  All are welcome, no fees.  Bring your surfboards and something to lay them out on and be ready to sell/trade.  Even better come with a pocket of cash and buy everything cool you see.

I remember once in a while not even being charged by a kind check in person. Ahh...those days, much like my old compact discs, are long, long gone.

I had a nice counter lady once tell me about her kids surf and bag fees suck.  In my mind I was thinking I might get a deal.  Then she charged me the full price and I gave her a look of surprise.  She simply replied, "Yeah, that's why they just rent boards when they get there".

22
I have one of these.  Great boards.

23
Gave up banking?  From the article, he was 27.  When your a kid, you just quit a job.  You don't give up flipping burgers. 

24
I am really disappointed with all charities at this point.  If you can't donate direct so someone, I don't give anything. 

If you have a name and APO address and you can send car packages to people overseas direct.  Used to have a buddy in active duty, but he has retired.  Would drop stuff in the mail every so often when he was over there.  Most common requests - coffee, beef jerky, chewing tobacco/dip and cigars.  Throw in a surfer mag or two as well.

If anyone have a name of someone serving overseas, PM their info and I will send something out.

Home of the free because of the brave.

I helped get someone off the Manasquan Jetty a bunch of years back.  Sets coming from the NE and just pushing him into the

Technique was to watch the wave come in, turn back to wave, hug tight to a big rock, let the wave hit my back (without a gap between me and the rock I did not get banged around), after wave passes, make a move to another spot and do it all over again.  Got the guy out and then climbed back up.  Never take your eyes of the waves, stay low and flush to a rock when waves crash into you.  Don't get knocked into the rocks be tight to them already when the wave breaks.

Just my 2 cents.

This would include money for elevating your home even if you bought after Sandy.

It's like getting a deal on a used car because of body damage and expecting someone to fix it for you on their dollar.  If you bought post Sandy, you assumed the risk.  Leave the money for the people that lived through the storm and lost everything.

In NJ a large chunk of money is going to fund residential developments away from the carnage.  The only one making money on those are the developers themselves.  Well maybe the carpenter or painter who lost everything during the storm can make a few pennies. 

The "recovery" from this mess is an absolute joke.  At least in NJ.

27
What's worse, talking in the lineup or bitching on a surf forum?   

Top 3 topics on here today are whining.  I thought there were waves in NY the past few days.

28
