the double standard as far as swimmers in the surf zones is quite annoying. although in the summer it can get crowded to the point where surfing would be dangerous, on one specific crowded weekend day last summer, surfers made thirty something saves. i bet for some of these saves surfers paddled into a "no surf zone"...the horror

i guess what im trying to say is; yeah, if you swim near a someone surfing you/your kid/your friend might catch a surfboard to the face or body, but if you float too far out and fall off your boogie board a surfer will not hesitate to make sure you're ok. therefore, not allowing surfers in certain areas is not only counterintuitive, but dangerous as well. if someone drowns in wb this year, im blaming the town of wb for not allowing a surfer to be there.
