"NO RULES, NO LEASHES, NO COMPLAINTs"
On the third Saturday of September, Anthony and I packed up our photo gear at 5am and beat it an hour and a half south to Manasquan Beach, New Jersey - a first for all of us. Paul was competing in the Men's division of the Manasquan 24th Annual Classic Longboard Contest. The rules are this: NO RULES, NO LEASHES, NO COMPLAINTS and surfers must ride a pre-1967 longboard. Paul checked in with his late 60's single fin David Nuuhiwa Bing Noseriding Model at 7:30am on the north side of the inlet. Throughout the morning, contenders trickled in from the parking lot and started stretching and waxing their boards. Some even jumped in for a quick dip to warm up.
