Pat Schmidt in Manasquan, New Jersey - 4 Cities (Episode 7)

4 Cities: What’s the place you spend the majority of your life like? Does it make you you? Or do you make it you? We wanted to immerse ourselves in some of our favorite surfers hometowns to see how they blend in or stand out in their communities.

In Episode 7 of 4 Cities we found ourselves in Manasquan, New Jersey, post Hurricane Sandy. Local boy Pat Schmidt gave us the ins-and-outs of growing up in New Jersey, the dos-and-don’ts, and why it’s a great place to grow up. We also picked the right time to jet over for a few days and got lucky with an amazing couple days of waves.
