Just for common knowledge in OCMD. Not sure how strictly enforced the said ordinance is, but here is what it says for what is classified as a BB & allowed during summer months with tourists on the beaches.
Bodyboards or “Boogieboards” as they are commonly called are restricted by size, composition, use of skegs, and may not be used on thedesignated surfing beaches. Additionally, if used like a skimboard (riding in a standing position on the shoreline) they are considered askimboard by definition and may not be used between 10:00 and 5:30.For clarification, the ordinance that regulates bodyboards as it is defined in the official Code of Ocean City appears below: Boogie board (bodyboard). A flexible, semi-soft, buoyant, semi-curved object, no longer than 3 1/2 feet and no wider than two feet and nothicker than four inches, made of a closed-cell polyethylene foam and possibly but not always having a smooth plastic layer attached to thebottom and without rigid or semi-rigid attachments or protrusions for aid in steering or movements which serve as a rudder and commonlyreferred to as "skegs."
They may not get out the tape measure to check the board, but they CAN per the ordinance. With more of the bigger boards like the Beater, Herlihy, etc in the lineups, they will probably be watching more than they used to.
even then they could just change the ordinance to basically read any board that is used to stand on and ride waves is strictly prohibited.
yea i have noticed some scowls when doing standup. but i feel as if they see people doing stand up they have an idea about whats going on. But as far as safety, all options fit the criteria. And thanks chuck, i am aware of the ordinance, trying to by pass it. I just don't get how the definitions of WRVs can be manipulated like that or just complete ignorance to the non-tourist demographic
