Today a cop rounded up everyone surfing at 79th street (in Virginia Beach) and informed us that there is no more surfing allowed within 300 feet of the 79th street pier. 79th street happens to be one of the better breaks in all of Virginia Beach and we were forced to move to a ****ty break while watching empty peeling lefts go off at the pier.
If only the bastards in city hall surfed...then we wouldnt have these bull**** problems.
Special thank you to the Army Corps of Engineers <3 <3 <3 thank you for destroying my favorite surf spot! <3 <3
move to the mentawais, haha or just surf there anyway and act stupid every time they call the cops. Also figure out if the pier is ever closed or what the security hours/shifts are..... maybe you could fit in a dawn/pre-dawn session?

Sounds like time for a classic Surf-in where you mob them with surfers from the entire town and area. I'm willing to bet the signs are on the beach as well, and most likely attempts to enforce it are from the beach as well. Do they have waterborne police?
I just got back from surfing the pier and a lot of surfers were disregarding the signs and taking off right next to it so im thinking that the pier owner is only serious about enforcing the rules when it is a warm day with lots of swimmers and tourists...which happens to be all of summer for VB.
Nothing like dodging fatass pale people with waterwings on your last wave into shore to get your ticket!
That definitely is BS i must agree. The ocean is there for all to enjoy and dont let anyone take that away from you. Definitely fight that with your local homies. VA Baech authorities suck the big one anyways. I got a parking ticket there when my meter ran over just 15minutes. They can suck on my ding dong
you know this "pier" is temporary, right? as much as the restrictions suck, it's not forever. there's one at 42nd street as well and they recently put a 300 ft. sign there too.
these both are temporary structures used as they rebuild the drainage pipes that carry out all the runoff into the ocean. it's not a fishing pier or anything.
actually, i can see potential danger with the large cranes swinging around while people are surfing nearby.
they definitely have created decent breaks (for VB) with the sand building up, so it's definitely going to be an interesting summer, but when there's real waves, there not working anyway (they have to take a boat to work and the crane cherry picks them on and off the pier/structure).
so far it hasn't been a problem but with summer right around the corner, i guess they're trying to enforce the restriction now.
