    Check this boater out...

    I went up to the shark river inlet in Belmar on my lunch break on Friday during Earl and I caught this guy wave hopping right in the inlet. By himself, no life jacket on, but he did have some sort of turbin/oversized handkerchief wrapped around his head?? He was just cruising up and down wave faces pretty casually for the half-hour that I watched him...I didn't hear anything about a drowning so I assume he made it through his session.

    i dont think theres any law preventing that as long as he wasnt near the beach with people in the water. they could have given him a warning, but i doubt he got fined. i watch guys on skis jump/ride waves in the inlet right infront of the CG
