After Hours surfing is being regulated now.

  • Last night I witnessed the parkies drive up to a few Surfers who had moved away from the crowds just outside the surf beach at about 7pm. They called them out of the water & told them they must stay in the designated surf beach even after 6pm. The surfers looked totally confused. It was hidious. they paddled back over to the main peak & thats where they stayed until they finally left.

    Not good. I would show my anger but frankly Im too depressed on that issue.
    They also drove up on there quads & tried to say that it was ligtening & thundering & tried to get us out of the water. Granted later it was, but, this was loooong before and it was only raining a hair at the time they were requesting us to leave. There was no Lightning or thunder yet.

    Just thought I'd bring it up. If it was breaking somewhere else, I wouldve probabaly been surfing somewhere else, I would have refused to move, I would be arrested probabaly. I hope this isnt gonna stick. Has anyone else witnessed this yet?

  • They didn't say anything to me last night. Not that I would have listened. Out front by me, no worries. I saw a quad roll by, slow down, then kept going.

    I did get out of the water before the lightning this time. Lessons learned.

  • This was over by the whale, I wasjust walking out onto the sand the guy on the quad was waving his hand for them to get out so naturally I wandered past them on myway down & over heard him say, "You have4 to stay in the designated surf beach." The one guy asked, its after 6pm tho, & the parks guy said doesnt matter all surfing has to be done at the surf beach. My heart sunk for a second. This is new. They never cared where you weer before, not one bit while you were on a surfboard. swimmers yes, surfers no. mustve come up recently in some kind of meeting or they were instructed. I dont know but they did wrangle them on down. Amazing no ones commented more on this thread. BB by you is another area, if thats where you were but I guess Jscott was asked to leave down there too. They probabaly didnt say anything bercuase maybe they didnt have a megaphone or soemthing & were too lazy to call for you. But they bothered Jscott for sure.

    Did you tell him that he was mistaken and to check with his supervisor?

  • This morning there was nobody at any other beach and a crowd, a mob, at the surf beach.  Do they have a brain?  Do they have eyes?  Do they have a soul? 

    The Parkies sort of remind me of a South Park episode where the town is overrun by homeless people/zombies who keep on saying "Spare Some Change" and digest the change for energy.  Automatons.  They must be stopped.

  • Parkies are off at 10pm. if the police would have seen it, they'd come to get you. when Im night surfing I try to hide if I see the cops shining a light on the water. I dont need the hastle. I just wanna surf.

  • Lotus B and I went for a surf at" the new legal spot" last Friday around 4.30

    We were told by a ParkOfficer (Name on badge A. Blake)  That we were not allowed to surf there.
    I of course mentioned calmlly that it was annouced on the parks dept. website and that yes it was legal.
    She said nobody told her.
    We finally were allowed to surf only after I said, ok I want to get the facts right, so I need yor fullname and badge number.
    Enquote A Blake "Oh just go surf your silly beach, but nobody told me nothing about it.."

    And that I believe is the true problem, Nobody in the parks dept. is telling anybody else what the rules actually are.
    The Parkies are just making them up as they go, get an angry parky, you get a whistle, get a lazy parky, you get a glance and a drive on down the beach.
    Nobody in the dept "really" knows what the new rules are.


    So eff them, they want to get me out of the water, they can come on in a get me.
    Call the Coast guard, call the cops, if the rules are not clearlly stated and availble to the public, then they arent enforceable.
