So a few weeks ago the ocean front get's trashed and some people get ticketed...757 goes surfing enjoying the ocean, being respectful gets ticketed - the irony
paddington sounds a lot like brendan.you should send that letter to transworld surf for the true shark story shyt they do every month
No, Brendan sounds alot like Paddington............. hey do you mean that Brendan Buckley dude?
That's funny you mention that. I did submit my Bogeton Wolftucks story to TWS's "TRUE STORY" awhile back. I told them it was aboot as "true" as any of the other stories they put in it. Nothing. Rejected. I have yet to make that jump from professional letters-to-the-editor to actually getting a cracker to give me twenty dollars for a piece. Ya know what it is that I be sayin' ?
Hey 757, I hope this run-in with the law hasn't stoked a fire of criminal excitement and intrigue within yourself. Kind of like a "gateway" offense........And dude, don't sweat going to court. It's no big deal. As you become a criminal you'll realize that as long as it's only municpal court it doesn't matter. Superior is where you worry. Ya know what it is that I be sayin' ?
I would argue it too. it's worth a shot. make up some story on how you got a leg cramp and couldn't fight against the current and the lifeguards failed to see you signal them to help you lol. get creative! worse case scenario you have to pay it, best case scenario you don't. if you don't have any type of record or past tickets, most of the time the judge will be lenient with you
Yea definitely take it to court! I got the same ticket in the fall but I was the only one in the water on the North side of the pier. When I got out of the water, I was apologetic and respectful to the cop. Thought he was gonna let me off, but he still wrote me a ticket. But I went to court, told the judge the current had pushed toward the pier and the cop didn't refute it. Judge let me off with a warning.
In your case, I hope you get to appear before the other kid, so his disrespect doesn't leave a bad taste with the judge or cop for you.
Last year, I was surfing the north side of the 15th St pier. Nice spring swell. Some locals, some groms, some interlopers. All cool. DP.
Sitting there waiting on a set, when thawunk! heavy splash! something hits the water between me & a shaggy-maned fairly chunky-built blonde dude in trunks (the rest of us were in 3/2's....Lee....?!?)
Shaggy B starts cursing out all of the overweight fisher folk up on the pier for pegging debris at us in the water.
Well, those lardy ol' pier fisher guys knew what was up; they kept staring at Shagmaster, non-committal, kinda waiting for him to start looking at waves & away from them, and gaboom! here came another missile. ShaggyB was incensed. Can't blame him. And, also did not want to catch a chunk of lead in the side o' my head. At that point I just paddled further away from said pier.
I figured it was not worth it to catch a missile in my cranium; and besides, you gotta pay an entry fee to go up on the pier & start to beat up a coupla fat drunken idiots, aaaaaaand then I end up in jail, throw bail, ahhhhh crap been there done that.
Anyways, 757, I truly hope you get your ticket for surfing repealed.
