i live in LBI and run past the beach checker every time i surf or skim. if im just going to the beach to chill then i say my mom is coming with the badges. it works every time. Seriously, badge checkers dont care. The only reason that you may run into a stubborn one is because the checker who sells the most tickets gets a $500 bonus. whoopdy freakin doo. but i only had one situation where the checker gave me a hard time (we were yelling at each other for several minutes) but I just ran past her into the ocean. She actually made the lifeguard paddle out and tell us to go in. Luckily i know the lifeguard so he let me go. the law is pointless and rediculous for locals
