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.

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.

Anyway, the guards cannot say anything about the tents. The police are the ones who are supposed to take care of situations like that. Needless to say, situations like this tend to be overlooked on a regular basis; just like dogs being out on the beach during the summer season. Just a few weeks ago, I watched a cop drive right past a dude throwing a tennis ball to two dogs. Shortly afterward, one of the dogs took a solid dump that the owner did not pick up. Maybe a half hour later, the owner packed up and walked off the beach. I caught up with him and told him about the sh!t that was left behind. His explanation? "I don't have a bag" I told him to wait while I went to get one - he wasn't there when I returned.
Take a deep breath, DL. Remember that the town loves you and that your police force really needed that monster truck.
