    Things have changed a bit since that time period. Squan inlet is the only break in town. It doesn't break quite like the peak it used to on a solid SE swell, but it's still ok...but stupid crowded with a serious local pecking order. Not the place to fight for waves after an oddesy like the drive from the Burgh.

    I surf Normandy often and there are no badge checkers at the entrance to the sand. I enter with board in hand and head right to the water, no badge required. They do, as the sign states, patrol the sand for badges, but if you are in the water you are good to go.

    Same situation on many beaches to the South. No fenced off barriers with tag inspectors. Not sure about other beach towns but locally during the Summer months when lifeguards are on duty (10-6) there are two designated surfing only beaches and that is only in a 10 block stretch. Further out it’s more spread out and less surfing restrictive. Summer beach patrollers won’t even ask for a badge if you are walking. For dawn patrol of course everyone is still asleep. Just the way we like it.

    Oh by the way Jesse is this ‘surf trip’ thread going to cause any tripping?
