Saw a kid get his nose broken one time back in the eighties and get this it really was at Belmar. Back in the seventies in the keansburg area of NJ you had to fight to survive, it was a jungle back then. Even with all that street fighting I never came to blows in the water. I've had shouting matches, I have told large numbers of people to f-off while in the water but most didnt want to fight any more than I did. Everyone should be ready and able to fight to defend themselves but barring an attack it's not worth the trouble.
