You guys are fortunate.... REMINDER.... DON'T BE IDIOTS AND RUIN IT. You're probably the only county where surfing is still legal. I never surf by my house because it's prob the mushiest wave in town, but at this stage I would love to be able to just ride my bike with my stick to the water for a DP session ...

I guess fishing is essential if it's putting food on your table, but are you allowed to sit in a chair while fishing? Or will sunbathers start taking a fake fishing pole?

Either way, I'm glad they recognize that social distancing is possible, and I hope we (collectively) handle the privilege responsibly.

Just for nastiness, coronavirus can persist in the water. I think we have far cleaner beach water than most of southern California. Los Angeles Times

I have seen a couple of stories about existence and/ or persistence of coronavirus in the ocean ( saltwater), including this one- and a recent Facebook message I got from the Avellanes area quoting some guy named Saul Quiros........

In every single story I have read, the assertion centers around an "expert's" belief that it MAY persist.

Not one article has mentioned any peer reviewed scientific study of the subject.

Until we see THAT, its just someone's opinion.

Most surfers don't live on the beach but has a buddy who does. I would assume that it is ok to drive to a buddy house and walk with him across AIA and surf. Any thoughts or concerns given the current safer at home order.
