SURF COMMUNITY MEETING

  • to all who are concerned, its time to act.......
    lets all get together and organize our ideas/ concerns and what our collective priorities are so we can approach the powers that be with a consice list.
    with that, i feel, we will be in a much better position to recieve a more favorable response. what ever their primary concerns and needs are i'm sure can be met and we can all benifit from establishing some concrete framework for handling issues as they arise as an organized group.
    aroura and i would be honored to have the community over sometime in the next week or so, whenever works best for the masses.
    the sooner we act, the sooner the ball will be rolling towards permanant change for the better- garanteed. its the american way its just up to us to make it happen.
    the glass is still half full

    ......and yes we will be filling glasses and supplying beer and non-alchy drinks, and could fire up the grill ;D
     ;Dheck bring a stick or what have you, if there ar wavos we can walk across the street ;D ;

  • not sure I can make it, but we definitely have to get these green-kOOks off our ass.

    They basically chased me while i paddled down to the 40's - yelling and screaming at me to get out of the water. I ignored them, paddled back to the maon jetty, got a few rides, saw cops in their car questioning some surfers that came out of the water, paddled up to my street and as I was going up the stairs I looked back & saw a cop boat flooring it towards the jetty with it's siren on (no doubt to find me) - WTF?

    what are they such nazis? what the hell did I do wrong?

  • Would our shack be a good meeting place?
    Or should we do a morning meeting at the main break.

    Lets start small and fiqure out a agenda and and a game plan
    What are the goals?
    How can we accomplish them?
    Who do we talk too in order to educate the Puttputts that the water is the last free liberated area left in the country...

  • well, as I was paddling into the 60's, there were PLENTY of people on the beach. Notably black people & black parkies who did nothing. there was also plenty of guys on the jetty fishing & they did nothing about that either - the cheif concern was to get me out of the water & they went nuts about it

    thats bs. I am definatley down to be part of an organized group so we can get this ish under control.

    and on an unrelated note, why is it flat when i am bored at work and can skip out, but when its firing i am busy as hell!?!?!?  its really starting to get to me and i might and i think i might dump in the urinal to help ease the pain.

  • It has really gotten out of control with them.
    It seems all they care about is seeing if there is a situation that might be "ticketable"
    They really don't seem to care about making the place safe, just profitable.
    Its Ridiculous, Hey Sheriff Brody, Im not your kid...I will go in the water if I want to go in the water..

    As for right now, there ae some things that you all can start doing ASAP

    Write in clear, non emotional language an incident that has personally happened to you.
    Being told to leave, being harrassed over nothing, anything that might have happened this year.

    We have one where the Park Sheriff refused to make a call into the parks dept, to let them know that their garbage cans were about to get washed out to sea or buried by the extreme high tied.

    "Its not my job to worry about garbage, its my job to write tickets to the guys jumping off the jetty"

    The problem with that type of idea is one or two people get pinched and everyone else turns into a jellyfish.
    Plus you need media coverage and in the end it could go either way.
    Trust in the board.

  • ok someone enlighten me here...is there a law we would be breaking if we surfed at designated beach after 6pm?
    the whole point of having a designated surf beach was for this brown trout not to happen, and to no longer be hassled.

    I don't know the exact details but there is some law that states an officer can order you from the water in the interest of safty and fallure to comply is a misdemeaner. THere is no actuall ticket for surfing.
