    Looks like the guy created a new screename just to post this, and remain anonymous... tough guy.

    OK, not defending random beat downs, freedom of movement is a right and should be respected. SwellInfo made the exact point of the thread, NO MORE TOWING THIS SPOT DUE TO THE RAMIFICATIONS OF SUCH ACTIONS.

    With that being said, IF YOU really believe that you or any other person has a right to>>> "If they mess it up for you then oh well. Go somewhere else."<<<<That type of thinking deserves at least a good ***** SLAP, don't you think?

    Backwoodbeatdown has no authority to tell someone he can't tow there. If they close the beach because of this what is beating the guy going to do?

    btw: I don't agree with towing into small surf or towing at all for that matter, I also support covering your tracks when you travel as posted above and leaving the place in the same condition you found it. but do not support threatening violence if someone messes up your spot or trying to tell someone they can't come there. If this guy was a ranger or a coastie I would understand but he's just some guy who surfs there.
    its against the local laws... so that is why the argument is in place, and those who surf here regularly would still like to do so without any problems.

    The guys who towed here probably did not know that the state park and coast guard would make a big deal about it. But now that we know, we should make sure it that everyone else knows, so we can continue surfing without issues.

    at least a... stern talking to. I'm sure if you asked the guy what he was thinking and reasoned with him, he would say he didn't realize it was a problem, admit that he messed up and that he wouldnt do it again.

    Believe me I want them to continue surfing there too. More space in my lineup...

    We love to surf but the wise traveler shall always cover his tracks. Do not venture into someones territory and not expect to get the back wood beat down when you post a STUPID video of that certain spot. I'm talking to VA beach crew who traveled north of the Mason Dixon Line and decided to be dumb enough to Tow into 2 foot dumps.

    The Delaware State Parks in conjunction with the US Coast Guard has just posted an an announcement to close State Parks if this continues. The video of the IDIOTS towing into 2 foot shore break provoked some State Officials by quoting in this weeks State Park agenda, "This type of surfing and or assistance of jet ski surf crafts is potentially hazardous with in the action of itself and to others around." One of the ways the Coast Guard recommended to make sure this doesn't happen again is to Close the South Side Parking lot in the Off Season.

    Thanks a lot you VA DIRT BAGS!!!

    We don't drive down S-Turns, 2nd Light, or Rodanthe and post of videos on you-tube or swell-info of our sessions on your beaches. This is your fare warning; DON'T EVER DO IT ON OUR BEACHES AGAIN!

    We do not care if you come and surf, but cover your tracks when you leave. If you come, do not bring friends. Traveling alone is how it should be done and how mutual respect is built.

    Take this as your last warning!

    Sincerely,
    The Back Wood Beat Down Crew!

    when i read this, i see no threats. my interpretation is don't do it again. there is no "or else" in the quote. the wording is pretty clear and they have listed the reasons clear and concise.

    i've surf all over NJ my whole life and I will never EVER post a video from someone's local break unless i can hide it's location entirely!!! i've seen what happens when people dont cover their tracks!!!

    i also don't think this is one person; but a couple people. being someone who likes to surf there, i agree 100%

    about the shoals quote: i have contacted the coast guard and because we were past the football field distance, they had no problems with us towing into the shoals. but they said in the future if tow surfing became popular...and it won't, certain rules may need to apply! but they came out in the zodiac why we were out there this past fall and kept a close eye on us (hurlihy & o'boyles) and they said that we kept everything within reasonable measures. they told us flat out, "don't do this on the beach or u will be in trouble!"

    Threat: "Do not venture into someones territory and not expect to get the back wood beat down when you post a STUPID video of that certain spot"

    "DON'T EVER DO IT ON OUR BEACHES AGAIN!"

    Again, he has no right to regulate who does what on "his" beach.

    "If you come, do not bring friends"

    Who is this guy to tell people to travel alone and not bring friends? Why can't anyone bring their friends? Worried about it getting crowded? It's called learn to paddle faster and surf more aggressive if there's a lot of people in the water.

    "when i read this, i see no threats. my interpretation is don't do it again. there is no "or else" in the quote. the wording is pretty clear and they have listed the reasons clear and concise."

    Again, he can't tell anyone what to do.

    i've surf all over NJ my whole life and I will never EVER post a video from someone's local break unless i can hide it's location entirely!!! i've seen what happens when people dont cover their tracks!!!

    I mean guys, this is crappy east coast surf, it's not pipeline. Come to my break and post a video if you want. It's probly just like the other 400 jettys that line our coast. What are we fighting over? crappy waves? I'd like to see your reaction to someone saying "don't come to Puerto Rico or Hawaii and expect to surf"

    btw: a real quick google map search will pretty much show an aeiral of any spot with directions to get there.

    as oblove pointed out, i think the local law is that you have to be 100 yds from the beach or anyone else with a ski in the ocean.

    seems to me that the real issue here is the OP is saying not to come and tow since if that continues the state will shut down that spot for everybody. Its more like the surfers there policing their which is to be applauded. He also tells the offenders that they have been warned so he's giving them a chance to not do it again. If they stay away and not tow then no harm no foul. if they come up and just surf then that's not a problem either. It's only when they tow which affects others freedom is there a problem. remember, freedom and responsibility go hand in hand.
