Whiny People Are Whiny About UK Surfers Having A Good Time

Checking out the beach cams for North Carolina (also has Manasquan NJ and a few others), there haven’t been that many out surfing, because there really haven’t been waves. Swellmagnet shows beaches in the Los Angeles area, and, there are still people going out, though less than would be normal with some good waves (no one out right now, looks like crummy weather plus blowing out the waves at high tide). But, when I do see them, they are staying apart. And they are exercising. Now we have

People are furious after pictures showed surfers flouting social distancing and taking to the waves at a Newquay beach during the coronavirus lockdown

Next week, the government is due to carry out its first review of the draconian lockdown measures introduced two-and-a-half weeks ago.

But as the Easter weekend approaches, dozens of people were pictured in the sea at Fistral Beach in Newquay on Thursday – in defiance of the social distancing measures.

Surfing has been officially banned in countries such as Portugal, Spain and Italy – but no direct legislation has been brought in for the UK.

Sounds like they are jealous. The photos of the folks in the water show them at least 6 feet apart.

Members of the surfing community claim they are entitled to be out on the water as part of their permitted daily exercise.

Exactly.

Stunned on-lookers said the scene in the sea and around Newquay town was no different to what they would normally expect to see on a sunny day.

One said: “I could not believe it. Walking around Newquay there were people everywhere dressed in wet-suits and holding surfboards.

“You wouldn’t have thought there was a pandemic. It feels more like a hot sunny day.

What were these nags doing out and about themselves? They can mind their own business.

“Although some are social distancing, it is very difficult to know when riding a wave who is near you, or who you might bump into.”

Believe me, you know where the other people are in the water the vast majority of the time, because you want to be in position to grab the wave. Some people just need to mind their own lives.

This missed the scheduled posting yesterday, so, let me add this on

Don’t be these people. I’m sure none of you are. If people want to be snitches, snitch on people you see doing this.

    • Sadly, I was checking some surf cams, and in the part where they describe the conditions a lot were saying “stay home. Do your part.” Heck, I’ve had people ride their bikes on the greenway closer than surfers sit together. When I surfed we needed some space to turn the boards, and because that’s just the way it works.

        Used to be long boarder back in the day. Still got the “knobbies” after all these years.

    I am confident the writer is completely unaware of the irony.
