Keep the existing 150' Ft No surf zone

The fishermen are trying to push the surfing zone to 300ft. north and south of the pier. The current distance is 150ft. and we believe this policy should remain. Thank you for your support. Stand up and be heard this Thursday at 5:30 at the city hall in Flagler Beach.

Extending the no surf zone to 300' would have far reaching implications beyond  simply creating a larger buffer between the fisherman and the surfers. Flagler Beach has been the breeding ground for some of the best surfers in the country all coming from our quaint city. That will change if the buffer zone is extended. The waves break the best closer to the pier and this is the sweet spot that allows the youth to become great athletes and helps to serve as a place for the youth and adults alike. It helps give the youth a place to express themselves, exercise (which nowadays is a feat in itself), and gives them a place to occupy there time instead of hanging in other areas. This buffer has sufficed for many years and should suffice for many more to come. Please re consider this un needed and damaging extension of the buffer zone.
