I'm interested to see what "our govt's" over-reaction to these recent drownings is going to be. Mandatory life jackets like "click it or ticket", tax payer sponsored swimming lessons, rip tide awareness training, etc.
Brings back the whole leash thing.

Im doubting he was a surfer, the news says nothing about a surfboard...
Last night I saw a Shark River Hills Ambulance race down my street- and I thought, great... someone probably just drowned... it was about 6pm.
Its very sad, people should really stay out of the water when the lifeguards are not around... why are people swimming anyways? the water is soo cold...
There is a small group of surfers that comes down to Bradley from Jersey City, but I don't remember a John, in fact I think they where mainly girls... I cant think of a john who surfers Bradley from north jersey at all.
Maybe WE as surfers have to keep our eye out too- on those who are unfamiliar with the water- current and rips. Its fairly easy to see when some kids are playing in a rip... just whistle them out.
