its around a mile or so, but most people get a pass for toms river also and can go alot further down, its $35 from oct 1 thru april 30th, i have 35's mtr kevlars i air down to 12 psi's. U do not need to be a resident of brick, i dont think it matters actually. its a great area to fish. eveyone keeps the beach pretty clean, they are very strict speeding around though.

is always easier to load up the jeep and chase the fish along the beach, im planning on getting the IBSP pass in january, b ut this is the second year ive gotten the brick pass and is well worth it.

i live further south, in oc, & am not really much of a fisherman, more of a surfer. but being able to drive right up onto the beach in january or feruary is nice, esp. when the air is colder than the water...i don't really bother airing down & i've never had a problem. when i visit the outer banks in the summer, i go down to about 15-18psi. never gotten stuck (there was one brief moment of possible doubt this past june, but i got out of it) in my stock WK w/ 245/65r17 hankook dynapro's.

i believe it is $195 for the calander year, its alittle better, i pay 35 for brick beach and its more than enough sand, the good thing about IBSP though is you can make a fire

I have MTR w/ Kevlar too, last time I aired down to about 20psi and was ok(afraid of underinflating, some Guy told be I could lose my bead), the real chewed up sandy spots were iffy but got through, u think it will be a lot better at 12 psi? I kinda think I understand the concept behind airing down but is it def necessary and does anyone have a good explanation of why to air down in sand? I know I should do it, but just have always assumed my own reasons
