The New Jersey Beach Buggy Association is a statewide organization dedicated to the preservation of natural beach resources. Since 1954 the NJBBA has fought to preserve beach access for all beach users.

BEACH DRIVING tips from NJBBA:

  1. ALWAYS air down! Use caution not to get sand in stem or cap. Lowering your tire pressure is easier on your vehicle, on the beach and on the next person to come on the beach.

  2. Plan your movements. Try not to make last minute decisions. Cross ruts gradually and avoid hard turns. Use pre-existing ruts when possible.

  3. If you start to get stuck STOP! There is no hard bottom; you will just continue to dig a hole. The throttle is not the answer. Attempt to back up into your own ruts, air down, dig out or get help.

  4. If you need to be pulled out, always have the towed vehicle in gear if possible. Do not dead pull, a snatch strap and tension is usually all that is needed. Try to avoid 30mph jerk outs they are hard on all the equipment and very dangerous to those nearby.

  5. Always fill in the holes that are created when you get stuck; the next person will thank you!

  6. If your vehicle runs hot from beach driving, turn it into the wind and open the hood. Do not shut it down hot!

VEHICLE INFO:

  1. 4-wheel drive is mandatory on almost all beaches and is RECOMMENDED.

  2. Horsepower: Too much can hurt as much as it can help Easy on that throttle! Slow and Steady!

  3. Tires: Standard tread design as compared to mud tread (mud tires are for mud and not sand). Almost all tires must be aired down to 15lbs.  to 18lbs.(depending on vehicle weight). Be sure to exercise caution when driving to an air up location. Low tires offer poor handling on a hard road surface.

  4. 4-wheel high gear vs. low gear: This needs to be determined on a per vehicle basis.

  5. Washing down your vehicle after a trip to the beach is critical if you intend to keep that vehicle. A good coat of wax will help with the removal of salt spray.

  6. Maintenance is important. Full grease fittings will not allow sand to enter, and a well maintained vehicle will not leak harmful fluids onto the beach.
