Park your car as close to the boardwalk as possible and, remember to lock your car and hide your valubles because if not it will get broke into. Take off close to the jetty and pull into a barrel right, watch out for pissed fishermen.
Dangerous, there is a lot of shootings and robberies other than that great surf. Make sure to leave before night.
A great spot to go but make sure you know someone there before you go.

- I've seen blue boy here i think and he was getting barreled during TS Hanah. He walked of the beach and lit a cigarette and was removing tape from his ribs. It's a Heritage Surf and Sport shortboard.

- I've lived and surfed here for years. Vermont Ave, Metro's, New Jersey, States, South Carolina. Iv'e heard Crystals, Gas Chambers, Mini Pipe, and have even seen Steel Pier posed as "Casino Pier located in Atlantic City" in Surfer Magazine. People over do it with the inaccurate names and descriptions of this place. The crime is there, the crack heads are there, the trash, the gangs, the crazy asians, the weirdo's, the needles, all of it. It's not like a gang of hoods is going to want to fight your white ass with our tight suits on. They just usually want to know how cold the water is then just laugh and say, " Damn N**** you crazy man, you crazy." This place is full of diversity from white, black, asian, and mexican surfers, of all different ages. Everyone that surfs this place year around know one anothers boards and faces. If someone asked any of us how crystals (Absolutely NO Capitalization) was, we would either laugh or smile and simply keep walking.
