Thanks Erock, good info. The no booze rule is tough, but I can be discreet. As for the rest of my crew...I doubt it. Last time I drive there you could only go about half way down though. I'll see if I can find out if you can drive all the way to the point now, would be a nice change of pace if we don't camp.
Mad Dog - I always wear my daisy duke overalls. Between that, the trucker hat, my knife, and my ear necklace I let people know I'm not to be trifled with.
dlrouen - as much as I abhor rules and regs I can say it wouldn't hurt a bit if they just enforced some common sense rules. Maybe let all the nut jobs go up the point where they can whoop it up all night long. That way I won't have to hit people over the head with a shovel when they stand outside my tent at 2am yelling for their buddy Bob. (I love my shovel...it's both a weapon and a destroyer of evidence...). And thanks for the positive vibe, as long as the weather cooperates it will be good times.
I just hope they don't start trying to turn it into WB...

Unfortunately, the more gentrified CB gets with rich out-of-towners the more it will turn into the clusterphuuk WB has become. All it takes is for 5 of them to claim permanent residency in CB then run for public office--exactly what happened to WB... although WB has been bs in regards to surf zones for decades, long before the carpet baggers took over the Board of Aldermen.

Erock - agreed. WB used to be a nice chill lil surf town 20 yrs ago. If you were local and didn't act the fool even the cops were chill...e.g. just telling ya to stop pi$$ing in the bushes and go back inside the party. Now they'd cuff and stuff you in a heartbeat.
I think (hope) there's just too many old salts, hippies, punks, and dirtbags like me still down in CB to let that happen.

CB will be safe from surf zones as long as you guys can resist the urge to mow down hapless tourists standing in the impact zone...it's easy to imagine how one bad surfer/tourist collision could bring surf zones down upon us all.

Don't worry about me hanna, I tend to avoid the crowds and if I can't I'll bail before I run over someone. Not into hurting people if I can avoid it. And last thing I want is surf zones either.

We just got to keep reminding people about "the Buffer Zone" at the back side of Pleasure Island. Weapons caches, Neutron bombs, Nuclear Storage, man! They ship bombs all over the country from Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point.
"The Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point is the world's biggest military terminal."
That actually is pretty intense when you think half the island is off limits in case of a "military accident."

As far as hitting tourists.... I just play a game where I try to grab the beer out of their hands before they get smashed by the wave I'm riding.
BUT, on the flip side, some of the tourons in CB deserve to be run over with something. I've never seen a larger group of classless slobs refusing to pick up after themselves than at CB... and there was that one guy who deliberately swam out in the middle of a contest and proceeded to yell at the contestants about how he has every right to be wherever he wants and how he was going to sue if someone tried to do something about it... phucking rednecks.

I had already started heading over in case he got nasty with the kid or the lady. I also noticed two of my friends had slipped in behind the guy. Big boys too, both of them are about 6'3" and 250+, and one trains in Muay Thai. Lucky for him all he did was give a sarcastic "thanks! 'preshadit!". They left soon after, so maybe there was a tiny bit of shame in his dirty soul.
The lady was local and said she never puts up with people trashing the beach. I may not be local but I've been coming to CB for decades, my Grandmother lived there, and my Dad lived there. I treat it like I live there. Even if that weren't the case I still can't stand it to see people trash the beach. Any beach for that matter. Respect, plain and simple. And props to the lady and the little man for not putting up with it.
Only thing that would have made it better would have been seeing my bro cave that scumbag's face in with some well placed knees and elbows.
