While I totally support this, I just have to say that its too little too late. The surf/fishing community should have flexed our economic strength months ago (surf-onomics) as we bring $ to the shore just like tourists do and groups like Surfrider should have been harassing Corey Booker. I spoke to people who have chatted with the mayor of spring lake and told me that they said "we don't care about surfers"… and are amazed that Belmar is replenishing as The Belmar Pro brings big $ to them.
In the end its all about making more beach to sell more beach passes and protect the high tax paying houses on Ocean ave..who have home insurance polices to protect them from the same... I'll most likely be there but all its going to be a blurb in the Asbury Park Press with no impact on the plan.
