Hey just seeing this now. For the state pass(Sore Thumb and Gilgo on Ocean PKWY, Democrat Point at Robert Moses, and some others out east) you need your license, registration and insurance card and you can get the pass at Robert Moses or at Belmont Lake State Park in West Babylon. You can only buy this pass before April 30 or after Labor Day. So you can buy it now and it'll be good until the 2016 passes come out early next year. But make sure you don't miss getting your 2016 pass by missing the April 30 cutoff date like a lot of people do. This pass is a fishing permit, so you'll also need to do the free marine registry on the state DEC website.

The Suffolk County pass is available to Suffolk residents at something like $92, $2xx to non-residents and $2x/day for a day pass. This pass is good at Smith Point, Cupsogue, Shinnecock East and a few other beaches further east. For this pass you need to prove Suffolk residency. I don't recall if you need mail or if a license is sufficient, I would call first. You also will need a Suffolk County Green Key which is something like $30 and good for 3 years. You can buy this pass at the West Sayville Country Club or at Smith Point.

Both passes will tell you what supplies you need. Both require a recovery strap, jack and jack board, shovel, something to air up, tire gauge, first aid kit. The state pass also requires a portable toilet and fishing gear for everyone in the vehicle. I'm sure I'm missing a few things, but each permit will come with the list of equipment.

Have a good time and most importantly don't forget to air down.

Also for your info there are a few local Long Island facebook pages:

Nothing! Get your pass and equipment, drive to the beach, air down to at least 17psi(maybe get a set of STAUN deflators or the Currie Deflator), put it in 4lo and go for it. Contrary to popular belief, knobby tires don't help on the beach because they dig in more than street tires. On the beach you want to float on top of the sand(airing down helps A LOT with this). Anything else you'd do to go offroading such as suspension modifications and swaybar disconnects are unnecessary on the beach because you shouldn't be articulating on the beach at all.

Oh and about 4lo - if you're going to stay under the 10mph speed limit then use it. If you have a lead foot on the beach then 4hi may be better, but it does cause the tranny to heat up a bit more and there have been a couple JK fires on beaches over the years due to tranny lines supposedly bursting.
