Surfing outside the flags in Surf City
The citizens and visitors of Surf City support surfing outside the flagged/guarded areas at their own risk during the hours of 10-5.

We are requesting that Surf City remove the surfing restriction outside of the designated swimming areas and be allowed to surf, at their own risk, during the core hours. Most other towns on the island allow this and some have for years. There are many benefits to this including: positive safety aspects include dispersing the crowd at a single beach, and it is well documented that surfers frequently assist in water rescues in hazardous conditions. Surfing is a healthy, multi-generational family activity and it is practiced on an increasing basis yearly. This is a great way to maximize the public's use of the beach and surf zone and acknowledge over a century of wave riding tradition on the NJ coast.
