OCMD was last pumped in 2010 and I think its generally been breaking pretty good since then except for the middle to end of every summer when lack of swell means no sand gets pulled off the beach to replenish the sand bars.
I was there that morning of the shut down, Finished my session at low tide. Yes it is terrible that the park is closed and truly shows how bad the government is......... BUT it gets even worse... After world war II ammo was discovered there, one would think that they would try to clean it up. BUT NO IT IS STILL THERE!!!! and the worst part is even when I did the responsible thing and called 911 to report what I consider a safety hazard. Only a park ranger showed up, and never went to the beach to locate where I found the ammo, (mortar rounds). So be angry at the government for shutting down, sure.... But when somebody finds explosives I would expect more a concern for public safety, government shut down or not.... So all that being said, If you hear of a do good surfer who blows up trying to clean the beach, It was probably me doing what the government doesn't seem to care about. that's my rant, next time your at A.I. just be safe, there`s bombs out there , and no Im not talking about the bigger sets this time.
Is anyone else ready to invade the National Side to open it up? I want to go at low tide today and sneak in.
I am wondering how they deal with it when I complain after they open it and I ask for a refund for a new yearly pass.
Do it! Reclaim public land!
You got my support, I am fed up up with this bullsh!t, too...may join you this weekend.
I thought when you joined fight club you werent supposed to talk about operation mayhem?
if its closed then there should be nobody there to bust you. i mean if a bunch of elderly veterans can reopen the memorials then a bunch of surfers should be able to open the beach
I heard during Bill or something Park rangers were kicking people out of Sandy Hook NJ, I looked for the footage, but couldnt find it, then again that was for 'rip currents' and not a shutdown
but I did find this 'tidbit' about the lighthouse... Enjoy :) :)
