DogPatch Please!


Sorry folks, but this type of surfing is restricted to DogPatch with the ButtBoards and kayaks. Parks rules state that any water craft that uses a paddle or an oar at San Onofre (for safety reasons) is considered a paddle assisted craft and must remain to the far south of San Onofre.

That's not true, I can surf wher I want,and nobody can stop me. If the surf club wrote this, shove it up your ass sideways, and hard.

To Joe (full of) Crapp,
Save us the "freedom to surf where I please" lecture! We've all heard that b.s. before. It's a posted regulation that holds up in court. Incidentally, you have to appear in Fallbrook not South Orange County. I've heard from the State Lifeguards that it can be a very expensive ticket - up to the judge. One off duty peace officer pressed for a private persons arrest of an offending kayaker which the lifeguards enforced. Ask your buddies at the south end of the parking lot how his "I can surf where I please" argument fared in court.

Let me tell you! That Gondola guy this morning was the REAL ASS! He would drop in on everyone and then fall off because he was such a KOOK, and with NO LEASH he was a real DANGER in the water! And as for you joe crap, as my good friend Puttzle would say:

YOU FUNNY!

It's only a matter of time before we outnumber you regular surfers. Then we'll see who's at Dogpatch!

No leash a danger? C'mon, gimme a break. The leash is the danger. It allows people that cannot swim to clog the line up, it lends to poor surfing skills ie. bailing ones board over and over. Let's do the math. A person six ft. tall with a ten foot leash and a ten foot board jumps off at the end of a wave, because they know not how to keep their board under control, and beans another surfer twenty six ft. away. Gets up and pulls their board back. THAT is dangerous. At some waves a leash is a good idea. San Onofre does not fall in that category.

As for paddle surfing, Dogpatch is the LAW. Obey or leave.
