I guess you just say that and it makes it so. Have you actually guarded before? Do you have any evidence to back that up? The whole northeast is a ****ing joke with the lifeguards, beach tags, paid parking, surf restrictions, etc., etc. It never ceases to amuse me when a hurricane swell hits the east coast and surfers are banned from entering the water for their safety, but nobody says **** when it's December and 10 degrees outside and the surf is as big or bigger. But I digress. I will say that the guards on Second Beach here in RI seem very fit, and there's a senior guard that sits on the stand at surfer's end that really seems to get it. He's walking around, paddling the lineup, and generally engaged with what's going on quite a bit. He's a bit older, but you can tell he's got his **** together. Anyway, whatevz.
