    Never bought one and never plan too. Kid told me today if I kept going pass him he would call his supervisor. So a.12 year old has to call a 16 year old then eventually police. . . . But I'm long gone before that

    Yeah its a garbage policy. In Manasquan if you want to surf near the inlet you either have to get in before 9 or after 5. Or smile and chat up one of the badge police. Either way its ridiculous if you want to surf, you shouldn't have to pay a dime! But many beaches like Spring Lake don't bother you if you are just surfing. Hopefully the entire shore will adopt that policy. Surfers are the only ones who respect the beach anyway. Someone has to pay for the cleanup after Bennie's leave their Zima bottles and hair gel in the sand. Unfortunately it's us. Lame

    Here's the link to the public trust doctrine... which states noone can prevent access to the public lands below the mean high water mark. Pages 10-14 outline this. http://www.state.nj.us/dep/cmp/acces...s_handbook.pdf

    Wow, $90??? Most beaches around here are free, but I did buy a season pass to Volusia County so that I can drive on the beach at both the Inlets. It's normally $5 per day but $40 for the year if you get the pass. Mine has already paid for itself so the rest of the season is pretty much free. But $90??? Geez, Id probably still pay it and still end up coming out on top in the end, but that's kinda steep comparatively speaking.

    RELAX dude... Not a big shock that people "sneak" on to the beach... And super cool that you know everyone that surfs there. You're so core.
    I don't know you. I surf there. And I have never paid

    btw - I lived in OG for many years...

    And dude you don't surf there I know pretty much everyone there. Anyone, that surfs there certainly wouldn't come on here a disclose that.

    I give parking tickets in wrightsville beach north carolina. Come at me bro. Read "tragedy of the commons" by Garret Harding, and tell me whether you value the alternatives to the beach badge system.
