By Anonymous , 10-06-2008

oh boy - If this beach is too hard to find than you must be slightly retarded.About the kooks,yeah there are kooks everywhere on the eastcoast, so what?????

By Anonymous , 09-01-2008

lame - this break is very hard to find when its good. it needs just the right swell direction and size. too big its mushes out and is one big close out or its usually too small and weak. good wave to mess around on. watch out for the swarms of kooks out there
