Got down to a beach in Monmouth County yesterday, and took the board and walked down by the water to get in. A lifeguard walks over and tells me I can’t head out, so I laugh, and he points to the Police & Beach Patrol (bosses) heading our way. They are closing the beach, and removing everyone from the sand, including people just getting sun. Due to the rough surf from our recent weather, they were roping off the beach and patrolling it to keep people away from the water after 5pm. Have never seen or heard of anything like it (except after Sandy, which was understandable for obvious reasons). WTF.
