Surfrider Foundation

I'm sure Sean Ahlum is full of good intentions.
And since he's becoming a semi-spokesman for Wrightsville beach and the County, maybe he is intending on getting around to a new cause that I'm sure many would like to see.

First it was cigarette butts.
Now plastic bags.

What about Wrightsville Beach paying for it's own damn sand.

Some people think that a Surfer licensing fee should be enacted to discourage rowdy and reckless surfing close to innocent swimmers. Something akin to a surf driver license, complete with booklet and test to determine a surfers ability. Of course, licensing fees would have to be high, to cover a surfer enforcement officer year round. Maybe a $1000 bond to cover damage to the sand by dragging boards around.

We could then have surfer enforcement check on all surfers. License, board registration, insurance in case of hitting a swimmer. Yes, responsibility is something needed in the beach community.

Why should taxpayers that won't be able to smoke or carry plastic bags, or even those who don't come to the beach, have to pay Millions of dollars to a Beach that has come to symbolize snobbery, greediness, license plate profiling, and parking enforcement that would make New York City proud.

Littering laws are already on the books. Use them.
That would stop runaway bags and smokers who litter with butts.

Yes my friend, new laws are great, until it effects you.

Pay for your own sand, then I'll use paper.
