They're just doing what's expected of them, and the bar has been set pretty low. I'd never not surf because there's no guard on duty, but it can never hurt to have one there, especially if it's a sassy young lady.
    Only if the system allows guard who won't go in after somebody in heavy conditions (and there are WAY too many of those). IMO EC guard programs focus way to much on athletics and too little ant ocean knowledge.

    First of all Fitz, I wouldn't jump all over that because New Jersey and Rhode Island aren't the same places. I did have a debate, last spring, as to New Jersey being much more consistent than Rhode Island, but some of the RI guys didn't buy that. I guess the proof is in the puddin'

    Wow, it's bad enough that you are a kook, Fitz, but you also rely on the same old act - time after time after time.

    Yo, Fitz come up with something new.

    Actually Fitz, I haven't gone out this summer on any knee-high days. Had no need to. If I go a week with out surfing, I'll go out in anything just to get out. But it has never come to that. So, let me guess, Fitz, you didn't get out yesterday either, right? What kind of conditions do you go out in?

    Hey Fitz, how do you feel aboot the lifegaurds leaving after next weekend?

    Hey novices who are afraid to surf by themsleves, especially in dangerous east coast beachbreak, and those who actually NEVER surf: You shouldn't be posting on surf predictin' websites like you are some know-it-alls.

    I'm have been lectured aboot east coast wave orgins and how to measure waves by somebody who likes lifegaurds and won't surf by themselves. Wow, that's a new low for me.

    And I have some dork following me around giving me the business who actually NEVER surfs. It's too small. It's too big. Sandy just happened three months ago, six months ago, eight months ago...... Too many 12-year-olds......ahhh man.

    The internet is awesome.

    Oh I forgot, Shark Hunter, you need to move out of Rhode Island............

    I hear New Smyrna Beach, Florida has waves everyday. You smoke up, dude? That whole town is in a haze.

    my go to spots are all ruined by beach replinishment.i wasnt surfing yet when they did the big br project in the mid90s so i dont know how long it takes for the beach to form a sandbar.all i can think of is we need a big storm to rearrange the sandbanks.right now its a huge hill to the water and isnt offering anything other than shorebreak.thats why i cant take nj anymore,or anywhere on the eastcoast.imagine your a skater or bmxer and everytime u go to the skatepark they dismantle it.how do u cope with that?iv been skunked 3 out of 4 times this summer.i see guys saying,hey theres waves over here.well come to my beach its flat!!!i remember the days u can park at the beach and see the conditions from the parking lot.now you have to walk down a hill to get to the water.why cant they leave our beaches alone.the only good spot iv ever been to in nj where all my spots are flat is lbi.if i was a billionaire i would move there,but i hear talks of br coming to their town too.lbi is the only place i know with outer sandbars.thats another thing.u can tell how good the rides are going to be by seeing how far the waves are breaking out.if its breakin 100yds offshore,youll get a nice long ride.but when its dumping right on the beach,u have to time a perfect takeoff,pull in the barrel for a millisecond and jump off your board into ankle high water.northern nj sucks.

    Also Cep, come on down to the island bud. PM me if you want, I will give you a few spots that are doing well right now...get the hell out of Monmouth for a while until the waves get larger.

    That's because you've never been out scoring 23 footers with the 'shred. He shoots up and throws his dirty steroid needles in the water.

    Well, say you just scored a couple bags and you're out of needles. You can just go to the beach and find a few and bleach them up and then you're set. So it does have its advantages.

    Dude, that was a late 1980's thing. And blame unscrupulous New Yorkers for that. Our water is still chocolate but you don't see too much, actual tangible trash floating around anymore.....

    Ahh man, I hated the diapers.........couldn't stand seeing diapers in the water.....

    Shark Hunter you should move to New Jersey. Don't worry aboot needles, we got the juice.
