    I don't spend a lot of time hanging out at the beach. I'm either in the water, or fishing at sun up or sundown. I buy a beach tag at my local, because that's where I go with my family. I have no problem with that... they give simple jobs to the local groms, keep the beaches clean, empty the garbage cans, and keep the tourists away from the surfers.

    The bennies and shoobies need the lifeguards. Let them pay for them. The locals know the guards and tag checkers, and visa versa... and look the other way when they have to. The conflicts are between the locals and non-locals. What else is new?

    I think the system works just fine...

Or jump the rail when the renta cops aren't looking and run into the water when you see them walking up and down the beach.
    can you link that thread?

    i pretty much agree, except when you get hassled by some 12yr old on a power trip. that's my only beef w/ tag checkers. i watched one such aspiring ss member actually chase a woman into the water to ask her for her tag last summer. why take the job so seriously? you're getting paid to be outside, getting tan & hitting on chicks. as a 12-14yr old, that's pretty hard to beat. hassling surfers should be way down on the list of things to do each day...

    they're over-zealous because they're terrified of being fired and having to get a job at McDonalds

    SPEAKING OF MCDONALDS..... Does it make sense to hire a ton of kids that barely speak english and put them behind the counter at the busiest time of the year ??? I spent over an hr at the McD's in Rio Grande just to get a breakfast sandwich. The order was screwed up twice and there was people out the door. Almost everybody got the wrong food. I would have left but they had my money and I was hungry. Totally a cluster. STAY AWAY FROM MCDONALDS. Hey, if the beach taggers get fired that will solve the problem... Never mind - no beach tags in WW
