38th St. Beach

Edit Spot

It's the first spot I ever surfed so, Its kewl in my book. stop by at mickey's raw bar and get the mickey's special sandwich after you rip it. The blues brothers statues int he front of the place pretty much sums up the expereience here.

if you have a AWD you can get a beach tag and drive up on the beach. In the summer the beach is notorious for green head flies, the beach is very clean and pretty crowded in the summer. The locals are great people, there are alot of summer home people (shoebie types) that can be a little annoying. The brigantine bridge reminds me of that movei tron at night adn is the onyl way on and off the island, make sure you aren't speeding when you come down, the cops always get you. There are two surf shops that are pretty good, and the primal surf shop crew can be seen giving lessons and offering up years of fish stories. If you ever see them I woudl pick their brains. I hear the surf picks up in the fall adn it can get to 6 ft. I think its a great spot for a quiet surf day.

Additional Info:
you should be abel to park your car on the street right off the beach. Moslty long boarders here. Everyone is really laid back just like the surf.


As you approach Brigantine on Rt. 87 North, follow road over bridge; make a right turn at 2nd traffic light; go straight to 3rd stop sign and park on street; follow signs to Surf School. (taken Psurf.com)
The girls w/ the blue shorts combing the beaches will tag you if you doing some sun bathing. The beach tag hut is the round blue building on your right off the main street.
