visiting Sandy Hook NJ

going to be in the sandy hook area this weekend for a wedding and the forecast looks good. My wife is in the wedding and i have nothing to do all day saturday.

Is there a place to rent gear and get out on sandy hook bay?

Any suggestions would be awesome.

Re: Angry Swallow fin configurations

You can absolutely tell the difference between plastic fins and the higher quality ones.

I noticed the difference when i switched to a more quality setup in the first 50 yards off the beach. Much better upwind with quality stiff fins.

Re: Angry Swallow fin configurations

i have that same board, started with the included fins running as a quad. The provided fins are not so great. I switched to the FSC 2, MR twins set.

thanks,
JBL
