    Can we come, not surf and just cheer/taunt from the stands? Is there a bar or is it BYO?

    I'm also in. When times and dates come together, let me know. Might have a buddy or two that would be interested as well if we need the numbers.

    That's a great idea. We could add an element of realism by having a peanut gallery of guys standing around sipping coffee at the entrance and making up reasons why they're not paddling out.

    Right, like waiting for the tide to rise or the wind to turn.

    would love to just to check one of these things out - Rona got me down - im immunosuppressed so the ocean is my only goto for now -
    past 6 months have been ocean- then home - literally no where else (maybe supermarket late night a handfull of times)

    While your at it , bring your ski ‘s. The snow quality ( not the slope ) gets great reviews .

    We are actually planning on snowboarding the park as well. :)

    Neil, we will consider making a special trip to see you at one of the old haunts if the waves cooperate. Don't worry, the ocean is still our preference! And yes, we wish we were in Jersey earlier this week.

    Peanut gallery limited to the parking lot unless you want to chip in to heckle. In that case, bring it on.

    I should also mention that I believe board rentals/trials are included in privates. But I don't believe they have any Andreinis, Fowlers, Fryes, or, well, really anything else most of you would actually want to surf.

    Everyone else, I'm trying to firm some stuff up. Still all up in the air but the window is looking like it would be a day between 10/26 and 10/31.

    In the meantime, I've posted this before I think, but here's an edit from our trip to Waco. I make a cameo on the 4GF surf mat.

    Shouldn't a wave pool wave not be sectioning?

    A lot of that footage is the air setting and the backdoor barrel setting, I believe. For the airs, it's a sectioning wave by design. They say they have other settings, including "down the line rights and lefts."
