So family and I are traveling from WNY (Niagara falls area) while I stopped at event in 2013 I didn't really participate. So do I bring the the lil buggy on barrows or the cruiser on beach racers. Typically I hit at least 1 event at Wildwood each year. How much room at low tide? I'm guessing not as much room as Wildwood.

You can follow the tide levels by time of day on the JIBE web page. There is little to no hard pack at higher tide in the mornings, but soon afternoon it stretches to about 100 yards by later afternoon, reversing and rising towards sundown. This time of year, there are few people on the beach considering toe available room. Last year speeds of 50+ mph were safely reached with due care.
