      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    The only one I kept in touch with is dead....................skin cancer. They were almost all pretty hearty partiers.......I reckon unless one of them stumbled into some rich lady or invented something or other that none of them are comfortable.....at least thats what I keep telling myself. Although I took a pretty darn good road and loved every minute so I have no complaints.

    Maine is pretty though. I could never leave the beach but if I did Maine would be pretty high on my list..........seasonally of course!! I guarded Blacks for about two weeks.........different. Worst was at high tide you were not getting any backup from the south on rescues. So 3 guards, 2 at opening and 1 late in the day toward evening. The bottom there was pretty shifting. Get a flash or traveling rip that sweeps a dozen tourists out and you are on your own......the state guards next beach up north never came down to help. I worked with a couple guards back then who were "permanent seasonals". They guarded for City in the summer and worked ski patrol in the winter. The gap in the seasons was world travel time. Those boys had it figured out.................

    I guarded two seasons (well, 1.5 seasons) as a SD City seasonal before I got picked up at the FD. The advantage of being one of the lowest seniority seasonals was I was extra and not assigned to any specific beach.That meant I got used to fill in for sick and vacation staffing anywhere. Some guys hated that because you didn't have a home, you didn't have regular start and stop hours, if a beach wasn't busy you were the first to get sent home, and once in a while you'd get sent down to the bay to guard something like Crown Point or Bonita etc (yuck!!). What I liked was I probably worked almost every beach we had at one point or another, and often got to ride the wet seat in the jeep with the Sgt or Lt. Jeep days were fun because you backed up pretty much every significant rescue which meant I went into the water a lot on those days. So, I remember PB & MB really well. I liked it there because the boardwalk in MB was always entertaining and the rescues were pretty easy. On the weekend, all it took was a short walk down from the tower and someone was certain to feed you great BBQ. "Hey lifeguard, want some food?" Uh.......yes.....

    SUP at Big Rock!!!?? Holy cow!! That is such a steep fast barrel I can't imagine it with a long board much less an SUP! How the hell did he ever make the bottom turn?? I'd have stopped and watched as well.

    Makes sense to me....and it does sound fun.

    Oh....I’ll bet that would be good. Gonna give it a try.

    Well....I guarded there in 1976 after I got out of the military......so that was 42 years ago.... The problem places that really everyone knew about back then were Wind n Sea, Huntington south side of the pier, PV Lunada Bay, some spots in the South Bay, Ventura County Line, Rincon, and Santa Cruz Steamer Lane.....and really only Wind n Sea, Rincon, and Lunada were REALLY bad. On a whole coast that’s not so bad.

    No, not exactly a long board wave.....but no...the Wind n Sea crowd is one of the groups it’s not worth being around.....and I guarded Boomers/Children’s Pool and the Cove.

    Hmmmmmm A really bad surfer.

    BTW, the worst locals I’ve ever encountered was surfing in Hawaii. They’re pretty touchy there......at least that’s been my experiance. Maybe they have to put up with more Barney’s.
