    A more relevant and fun question would be, 'do surfers like cops?'

    I don't know where any of you guys surf, but I've never had a cop harass me because I have a surfboard. In fact 90% of them come up to me and go, "damn is it cold out there; your nuts man." The only time a cop ever said anything to me otherwise was when I was changing out of my suit. He told me to hide behind my car because the people who live around there were d**ks and tend to call the cops to try and give surfers tickets (For those who don't know in Ocean City, NJ you can get a ticket for changing out of your suit even with a towel around you.) He didn't make the law; he thought it was just as dumb as I did and was trying to help me out. As for them eyeing you up; so what? First, it's their job to watch the streets. Your on them; they're gonna check you out. Second, I've found that people talk/look at me 3x as much than when I walk to the beach with a board than without one (All the cliches; "You going out there?", "Back in the day I surfed", "You ever see endless summer?"). Ultimately I think people are what you make them. You wanna jump to conclusions that they're a d**k than they're gonna come off as one. I always find it funny that people love to complain about cops but when something goes wrong the first people they call are them.

    its very possible. but i think with surfing becoming more popular its kinda stupid to think that all surfers are a bunch of pot heads and dead beats. theres many people surfing now days that kind of puts that stereotype rest.

    I'd say about 75% or more profile the heck outta people, I've been at the victim end of law enforcement corruption first hand so I do not like most. As soon as I exercise a right of mine they go off the deep end like I'm some extreme right-wing nutcase about to commit some horrific crime. It does'nt matter if your in the right they can still ticket you and force you to waste your time in court defending yourself on a false charge, and the judge and D.A. work for the same reasons and scheme, its a total conflict of interest. I could go on all day about this, but to sum it up I do not call the cops anymore, it never did me any good when I did. And people wonder why some of us have a deep hatred for law enforcement, there is no one to stand up for the common man.
