Old School Swap Meet - Sunday April there.

It's that time of year again...actually we're running things a month or so earlier than usual.  It's been a long, cold winter and it's time for surfboards and a good time!  Pat and I started this tradition 5 years ago and it picks up steam each year...we'll get 100 plus boards out if front, around the side and in back of the shop.  We attract people from Cape May to Brooklyn and as far as Virginia Beach and's a really cool event that I look forward to every Spring and Fall.  The focus is on "Vintage" riders from the 60s, 70s and 80s...lately we've extended things to include modern day longboards, alternative and solution boards as well.  We'll get some classic skateboards and some surfing memorabilia from time to time.  It attracts all types from  collectors, surfers, long-time members of the surfing community and people that just love the surf culture.  We'll have some food and drink...Harry usually brings the coffee and we roll out the BBQ later in the day.

It's different than other "Board Swaps" because we just supply the place and the atmosphere for the event to happen.  We don't take any money or force you to take store credit for what you've sold.  It's another event that we, at the Beach House put together to continue to build a Surfing Community in our neck of the woods...that's what it's all about; surf culture.
