Im doubting he was a surfer, the news says nothing about a surfboard...
\nLast night I saw a Shark River Hills Ambulance race down my street- and I thought, great... someone probably just drowned... it was about 6pm.
\nIts 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...
\nThere 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.
\nMaybe 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.

Yep... factors likely to be involved in drownings include...
\npeople from inland who can swim across a pool don't realize there's a big difference between a pool and the ocean
\nthe water this time of year is cold enough to slow you down... even take your breath away
\nalcohol... especially in those young people who don't know their limits yet, or worse, think they do when they don't
\npeople who drive for 2-3 hours or more get to the "shore" late in the day, so they stay well past when the lifeguards are on duty to make the long trip in traffic worth it.
\na little 10 sec ground swell can create mini rips, which when the above factors are present, results in...
\npanic, loss of consciousness, and drowning.
