Didn't you call them out on why they didn't identify themselves as lifeguards?

Fisher was authoritative with you bc you were ignoring the surf beach facilitators who were whistling at you for like 30 minutes (The dudes in Yellow). We sent our off duty guard friend to politely ask you to move from the surf beach, and he told you that the lifeguards were trying to get you to move.
    Everytime we swim out, we don't always think to identify ourselves as guards. Personally, I figure the whistle around my neck sorta gives it away.
    I grew up here in OC (year round), and have been with the BP for 5 years. I feel like most people know the way the surfing beaches work. It's the 3 blocks in all of OC where surfers get preference.

    i hear you bro. you were cool about it. that is why i got out right after i talked to you. honestly, i had no idea that the first dude was a lifeguard. he was on a surfboard and never identified himself as such.

    its just that the 2nd guy pushed my buttons and that is why it escalated the way that it did.

    in retrospect, yea i was wrong. in no way am a saying that i am 100% in the right. i should have have paid better attention. but i do have an issue with the way that sergent ed handled the situation. he had no right to swim out there to provoke me. i am a laid back dude, a lot of people would have swung on him if they were in a similiar situation.

    i do appreciate what you guys do. i was in a mood that night, just didn't feel like dealing with it, i guess.

    i my opinion, you guys should show a little more discretion when it comes to the surfing beaches. if it is the end of your shift, what is the problem with loosening the rules a little bit? ie: letting the surfers out a little earlier if there is nobody swimming, letting a sponger do his thing at an uncrowded "surfing only" beach, etc.

    you are all right in my book bro, keep up the good work. sorry about the other night.

    it wasn't crowded. that is part of the issue that i had with it, but whatever, i should have paid better attention.

    Judges remark, "What are you stupid and blind?" After 14 years, it should be easy to identify 3 things. 1. A lifeguard. 2. A surf beach (Big red stands.) 3. That you should be working instead of boogie boarding to pay off your $50 fine!
    easy killer. your favorite break is also my favorite break. if you saw my face you would know who i am, i know who you are. no need to get personal here and start calling people names.

    i did not go about it the right way, i have no problem admitting when i am wrong.

    however, a guard (segent at that) swimming out to provoke a fight with somebody is not right. the guards are there for the safety of the community, not to attack the community.

    i stand by my words. that guy was wrong. i hope it doesn't happen again, to anybody.

    there was hardly any current at all. i paddled the 4 blocks. i was having fun and getting a good work out.

    i have to admit that the way you present yourself is a little kooky.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the lifeguards have ZERO actual juristiction over humans in the water. If people do not listen to them, don't they have to call the actual police, to come down to the beach, wait for the guy to get out, then ticket or arrest him. If ANY guard, Sergant or not came up and "threatened" me, or even thought about touching me, I would take you to court right away.

    Bottom line is that we "SHOULD" listen to you so we don't get fined, but if we dont, you can't just come paddle out and grab us. Then you will get sued, because you are breaking the law... So an "authorititive threats" from a guard were empty and weak. They can write you a fine, but they can't touch you. Even in the water.

    I mean technically, if those guys injure someone during a water rescue they can get sued. So, im not hating on the Guard or BP. They are a much needed organization for summers in the mid atlantic, but please please please gentlemen, don't get yourself confused with the OC PD or the swat team. You are a "LIFEGAURD". You really have no business be agro with ANYONE. It is afterall, YOUR JOB... You can'y get angry at people all summer. As BP, you know that the masses are ignorant and blind. So, just deal with it. its your job.

    Im not saying that the guy who paddled out and asked him to come talk to the cops was wrong at all. You my friend were doing your job. But the agro guy that tried to threaten him physically is a weak clown, who in reality can't touch anyone. So, if you want to be a tough guy, be a cop, or a bouncer. lifeguards are neither of the two.
    spot on! couldn't have said it better myself.

    way to expose your complete & utter ignorance of anything to *actually* do w/ lifeguarding. "can" is the common name for a rescue buoy or rescue can. it stems back to the early days of surf life-saving when it was actually a buoyant metal canister. this device went through several different incarnations & materials before plastic was first used in the early to mid 1970's. hence the term "can" in reference to the big, orange, plastic thing lifeguard carry around.

    yea, im not a lifeguard, so how the f*** would i know that? you should write a book about it smart guy.

    and if you are implying that nobody got out of line on your watch because you would have hit them with a metal "can" while they were in the water.........

    this is the attitude that i am taking a stand against.
