 Additional Information

During a hot summer day look North as you walk past the white pavilion for the surfing zone (black and white checkered flags). There you will often find longer rights peeling off towards Taylor and short steep lefts. During the fall and winter storms (and summer dawn and dusk patrol) look South for a good right off the 3rd St jetty.

Atmosphere

You couldn't find a more relaxed beach on the South end of LBI. Much less competitive than neighboring Taylor Avenue or Holyoke Ave and Wooden Jetty, the locals for the most part are extremely accepting of surfers of all skill levels.

During the summer the beach is guarded during the summer by two veteran guards combining for 7 seasons on 5th street. One of two has even guarded as far away as the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia. The beach is a pretty even split between summertime families and weekly tourists. In the evening watch out for the blue shorts of the lifeguards just getting off of work as this is one of their favorite spots to paddle out after work. When you see them go out of your way to say hi, and they will watch your back not only from water hazards but also from the occasional surfer mouthing off.

During the offseason the beach is quiet. Often frequented only by a few of the islands older locals sitting in the pavilion and a fisherman or two checking out the standing rip that invariably forms later in the summer just south of the pavilion.

General

Great all-round spot for those looking to have fun. The course of a year will see solid head+ barrels in 40 degree murky spring-time water to long mushy longboard lines in the summer to the fall surf where everyone except for the Hawaiian North Shore's big wave chargers can find some great sessions.

- HeavyD, I hope you didn't select your moniker after that outdated rapper, epecially since you have to be at least in your forties. You shouldn't kick peoples' asses just because you can. Not at 5th ST. or anywhere. I just found Jesus Christ after years of substance abuse and the anger and violence that Can accompany it. I found Him up in Barnegat Light. He was hanging out in the parking lot. Anyways, if you feel you must beat people, why don't you do me a favor(favour - for any Australians or Canucks out there).On the next solid N/NE swell that pops up, why don't you and me head to Holyoke, and you can beat everyone's ass. Then after the line-up's clear we can surf in peace. For some reason, I'm pretty sure you can handle everyone there. I mean it's LBI for God's sake. Then if that's succesful we can travel everywhere and you can knock everyone the fuck out. Though we'll(you'll) probably have a more difficult time practically everywhere else. You might have to enlist a few of your equally gnarly buddies. Or we could use your kid as bait. We'll have him fake injury or something and we could empty line-ups that way. That'd work good in places like The Outer Banks were everyone thinks they're Mother Theresa. Damn do-gooders. Yeah peace out and all of that.
