I just got back from surfing the pier and a lot of surfers were disregarding the signs and taking off right next to it so im thinking that the pier owner is only serious about enforcing the rules when it is a warm day with lots of swimmers and tourists...which happens to be all of summer for VB.
Nothing like dodging fatass pale people with waterwings on your last wave into shore to get your ticket!
That definitely is BS i must agree. The ocean is there for all to enjoy and dont let anyone take that away from you. Definitely fight that with your local homies. VA Baech authorities suck the big one anyways. I got a parking ticket there when my meter ran over just 15minutes. They can suck on my ding dong:confused: :mad:
you know this "pier" is temporary, right? as much as the restrictions suck, it's not forever. there's one at 42nd street as well and they recently put a 300 ft. sign there too.
these both are temporary structures used as they rebuild the drainage pipes that carry out all the runoff into the ocean. it's not a fishing pier or anything.
actually, i can see potential danger with the large cranes swinging around while people are surfing nearby.
they definitely have created decent breaks (for VB) with the sand building up, so it's definitely going to be an interesting summer, but when there's real waves, there not working anyway (they have to take a boat to work and the crane cherry picks them on and off the pier/structure).
so far it hasn't been a problem but with summer right around the corner, i guess they're trying to enforce the restriction now.
