Got dropped in on by some kook this morning and kicked him out of the water. Let the ignorance begin. I'm also looking at a certain cam right now and there's about 30 heads bobbing out there. Keep in mind it's barely thigh high. (although fun.. at the spot I was at)
Anyone else encountering ignorance yet? You can vent about it here.
yep...i was out this morning & some kook paddled out w/ a diamond-back terrapin on the nose of his board & proceeded to announce how he was saving the sea turtle from dying on the beach...i grabbed the poor thing from him & paddled it back to shore so it could lay it's eggs. the ignorance of people is astonishing!!
There were actually waves today haha I'm in CNJ. As for the mook.. he was a repeat offender. The other guys said something to him numerous times before I got out there. We were planning on getting him out of there. I wasn't forceful or anything.. I just told him that what he was doing wasn't acceptable and to find his own waves at the next jetty down to avoid problems. Luckily, he listened.
Believe me.. I hate being defensive, but it had to be done.
Amazing that East coast measures waves under head high, just say FLAT, who they kidden with ankle to knee high and clean conditions. Well, at least the water is getting toasty.
NorC, I lived in San Diego for a while and do remember reports of 1 to 2 feet on south facing beaches and 2 to 3 feet on north facing beaches. So good old Cali measures waves under head high, too my friend.
