Thread: only in VB

    only in VB

    Wow some kook tried to sue over getting hit with a surfboard. I wonder how many times he cut the guy off before this happened?

    Thoughts?

    I remember this story... IIRC the accuser dropped in so he got hit, but it wasn't clear if the leashless guy did it intentionally, or accidentally just by trying to avoid the snake.

    The more reason I don't surf at the oceanfront, I think this happened near the pier.

    *Correction, it actually happened at the Northend

    post his pic at every spot and get people to shadow him in the water so he can NEVER catch any waves. eventually he will quit the sport.

    Curious as to every ones thoughts on leash laws as I cant remember the last time I saw it actually being enforced.

    they are occasionally enforced, usually just in the summer. me and 4 or 5 others got $75 tickets for it at the 62nd street pier last may. My friend took his ticket- wiped his ass with it and threw it on the ground. Then the cop wrote him another one AND a $200 ticket for littering. All 3 tickets stood up in court. Dumba**. I just paid mine and shook it off. I hate that surf spot now, probably because of that day.

    Surfing restrictions are just further proof that americans hate freedom.

    Haha looks like George Michaels a little bit!
    Yeah I saw that this morning couldv'e just settled at the beach by talking to the guy. Didn't read that he was hurt. Saw a guy in the water at the north end with no leash last month,but he had total control of his longboard and was stepping off when the wave subsided, looked pretty cool I thought. He knew what he was doing.

    Just spent three days in VA beach (downtown Oceanfront area) and the board i brought doesnt even have a leash plug in it. No leash on this board. ever. Ended up having fun waves every day, even some good ones saturday and surfed in a crowd on a sick peak.

    Side note: you guys are hooked up with sand bars down there...jeez. Best i've seen in 20 year going there.

    Back to leashless - lots of people ignoring it. on the couple of times it got away from me i did glance up on the beach for a beach patrol white truck or ATV as my board bounced in.
