cant believe i got a ticket today for surfing. i was at the pier at 15th here in vb and got waved in by "marina police" and they wrote me up. No lifeguards there were blowing us in, received no warning, and i was very respectful. there are skimboarders that skim under the pier and there were swimmers closer than 200ft. i dont understand why the lifeguards didnt even give us a warning.... the current was pulling us into the pier as well. Should I go to court or just bite it and pay it off. I'm not really worried about it on my record, just the principle. Any advice guys?
