two jokers out at mid-town, with a jetski and Bodyboard, at low tide?
i was on the beach watching and it looked like the guy being pulled, got his arm yanked out a couple of times.
you might be bored,.... but it looked like you would want to pratice so much before ever trying to do any tow-ins, or tow-outs/ats, or whatever with a jetski
Anyone have any thoughts about it?
Other the backwoods crew, no one else really doing anything around here.

Or why they picked OC over Assateague Island. . . looked rather anti-climactic to me.

Geez, I didn't see that go down, I guess I'm kind of glad I didn't.. There's a lot of room for error and for someone to seriously injure themselves or others. I've seen a couple other guys with skis that don't really know what their doing either.. In Hawaii they make you take a class before you are able to tow someone. I hope these guys don't catch the eye of the authorities and ruin it for the few people out there that operate in a safe manner. Definitely don't take a jet ski to Assateague because you will return to the docks with a hefty fine.

if it's not 25ft+, paddle. end of story. anyone who uses a ski for any reason (other than lifesaving) in the surf zone is a kook. i don't care who you are. jet skis suck & blow. i would've called the cops.

I cant say I see many in the ocean ... some dudes in Ocean City were doing that a few months ago ... didnt look very fun .. I worked at a beach/swim club in LBI for a few years and all the kooks would rip it close to the dock and all the kids out sailing ..
