Not sure who's at fault here. At what point does an accident become punishable by law?

Surfer pays. At first I was thinking one takes a risk just by entering the water to either swim or surf... but when it says the board was not attached via surfboard leash... Surfer pays up.

if a surf-only zone then the lady. if not then the surfer.
I do remember reading a thread on here where a vacationing SUPer dropped in on a local and dinged his face and then went to the hospital with him and paid for his damages. I do wonder though as to where she was swimming though.
Wonder what would happen if he had a leash and it broke? Sue the company that makes the leash as well?
Your right on Fitz.
Surfing is a HAZARDOUS sport. The use of your surf board with a leash that is properly attached according to instructions found at www.npsurf.com is done at your own risk.

My question is why anyone would surf without a leash at a fairly populated beach. It's seems like you would be asking for trouble. I hate when swimmers get in the way where I am surfing, but they have the same right to be there as I do. I just try to keep my distance as much as possible, and keep that leash strapped on securely.
