 Additional Information

The west End of Long Beach is no secret but spots like these have been! Parking is rough during the summer months. But you can always find a spot if you don't mind a 10 minute walk. Just head strait north to the bay and usually there is Parking down there. You can even take the Long Island Rail Road from Manhattan and then catch a cab for about $10 bucks to the Location Connecticut street and the Beach. (Boards are no Problem with there Mini vans and station wagons)."ABOUT THE SURF" Be Ultra mellow and cool it is a very very local area but the out of towner scene is so minimal you can easily sneak in and even make friends. DO NOT go with a crowd, DO NOT paddle into a crowded spot there are 3 Jetties to choose from be cool and be safe. When the surf is big there is usually a sweep from left to right so pick your jetty and paddle out on the right side of the jetty and you'll get sucked right out. Beware durring big days the jetties keep on comming as you sweep down the beach. Scoutout the beach and see how far apart the Jetties are and you shoul be OK!

Atmosphere

Make it a full day down in the West end and enjoy the quieter beaches and some of the best Restaurants, Bars and shops in Long Island. LB is definitely a great summer town but it keeps on rockin and surfin all year round. The locals are very well surf educated and love to BS about the last great swell. This is a great way to get info and maybe invited to have use of an out door shower in a yard. Scouting this beach and area on off days or off season is a great day and a great Idea!

General

On days when all the beaches are crowded its way quieter here. On days that there is a big sweep to the west its a little less here! At high tide it might be on of the most dependable breaks in Long Beach.
