    If it were a time that I could do it, I would travel up from VaB to have dinner with one of my childhood heroes!!!! That picture of him at Pipe still hangs in my house. I have a M/P Peck Penetrator that I would bring up for him to ride. :)

    Get in touch with my friend Ken at Southside Surf and Paddle in Beach Haven. His shop is a little center of stoke. he has Ukulele Nights along with other events. Kens good people. If you are interested I send his number in a PM give him a call about a heads up. Might just have to fly up. Whenever John Peak was Surfing Swamies It was always a special session.

    Also highly recommending the Beach House in Bay Head -- not sure if there is a shaping bay but they have hosted a ton of events and bunch of well known shapers in the past (Bing, Hap, etc). It's one of the real community centers for surfers, with a focus on longboards and various hand shaped surfcraft (as opposed to Firewire, etc). Even if you don't have an event there, you should absolutely drop in at some point during your trip just to check out the classic boards hanging throughout the shop and talk story a bit. Eric is also an active member here: @njrider

    Beach House board swap is Sunday October 13th. Would be a great time to be in the area.

    Manasquan Classic surf contest is a good time too. Sept 14th.

    Beach replenishment has hurt much of the northern coast line, as it has in every town that did this.
    But the jetty breaks were always a good shot at finding a nice peak.
    In the south are piers that held consistent sand bars, especially Atlantic City area.
    Strong hurricane SE get up into Sandy Hook, but finding any where near to park during summer months is doubtful.
    Summer beach restrictions are ridiculous and expensive, under cover beach police looking for beach badges.
    Screwed the photos up

    Easy enough to edit out the multiple pics Jim. Just sign in, go to your post, click edit, put the cursor at the end of the two duplicate pics in the body where things are typed and backspace to erase. Click save changes and you’re good.

    When I was a kid every summer I went to Manasquan, my grandparents had a beach house there. The waves were always pretty good there at low tide, nice long rides. At the time I only boogie boarded, wish I surfed back than. Several years back my uncle told me they filled in the beach with massive amounts of sand to combat erosion and since then the waves are not as good. Not sure if they have come back to what they once were. But it is a nice little beach town.
