    tow surfing

    ok, so my buddy has a jetski and we've been taking it out a lot lately...got a tow rope and started towing on open water..was wondering if anyone knows of beaches where your allowed to tow in to waves...i know the waves are small and crappy, thats why i'm trying to make something out of them, and hopefully train for cortes or jaws while i'm at it

    you need to check with your local laws about water crafts near the coastline. In Maryland, there is a law that the watercraft needs to be 200 yds from the beach, swimmers, or any structures.

    We have towed, however, in desolate areas where we were unlikely to get caught by the coast guard.

    And you have to have a spotter.

    I think if you wait til the guards go home, or winter, you can tow when ever and where ever you want. A friend of mine does that.

    Just wait like one more week and guards will be gone and so will the people.
