  You think of surfing and those Beach boys on the west coast...and forget that the east coast can well be home to this sport as well. Have fun !

Laura, The Annual Longboard Surf Classic in Long Beach Township sounds like a blast. I surfed years ago on the west coast (sorry) with a classic longboard.
