Publix parking was 100 percent full. Surfers running back-n-fro across A1A. Obvious problem is obvious.

It's like the beaches and ICW parks here last week....... I came in from kayak fishing midday (solo) and thought... "WTF?!?! we're screwed" I dont think it's a coincidence that Saint Johns cases doubled since then

There are plenty of opportunities to be alone, on a day like today

But monkey-see, monkey-do. A lot of the visiting surfers haven't scoped out the isolated breaks, and when you are racing against time, wind, swell, tide, etc. they flock to the go-to spots

Not to mention the problem with manners...

Mature adult surfers should not use Covid-19 as an excuse to cut people off.

I'm not one to justify localism... but if there's a time for people to do it...

YES.... I'm not a local there (but often there when it's "gametime") but fully agree. Sorry folks, some peeps made choices and sacrifices to live where they are, so it's time to let them reap the rewards........ this is not about elitist access bullshit (the beach should be open to EVERYONE), or localism (a little in the lineup is a good thing) but this is about public safety..... it's about someone's mom, dad, grandma, etc getting this shit..... and the potential repercussions

One California scientist is quite adamant surfers should stay out of the water:
https://www.yahoo.com/news/cor...ientist-140029412.html
No proof of real danger yet, just some circumstantial evidence suggesting it might be possible.

If runoff from streets and sewage dumping by cruise ships can truly be aerosolized by breaking waves, then we should see an increased rate of infection among beachgoers and oceanfront residents.

I think that concern is a bit over the top.

I'm all for out-of-county surfers getting burned on every wave right now

^^^If you can burn them then you are too close and rolling the dice they are not virus positive. Surfing is a sport where mucus flies everywhere, you duck dive 3 set waves then CLEAR YOUR NOSE, get a bit of salt water in your mouth , SPIT it out...Normal of course we all do it...Now this 6 foot rule was done in a closed room, no high air flow....The SEA BREEZE CARRIES IT MUCH FURTHER THAN 6 FEET! How far, depends on the wind...now take 130+ individuals doing this at one spot and yes...you guessed it...you are risking you and everyone in your families health (including your pets as well)....I still go out but stay very alone, won't even surf with my friends...I fear people more than any of the toothy creatures around me....wise up folks.

Kim Prather

Biography
Prather is a distinguished professor and the Distinguished Chair in Atmospheric Chemistry at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UC San Diego.

Prather's research focuses on understanding the impact of atmospheric aerosols and their impacts on clouds and climate. Early in her career, she developed a technique known as aerosol time-of-flight mass spectrometry that is widely used in atmospheric field studies around the globe to determine the origin and chemistry of aerosols. A major focus of her research involves understanding how aerosols impact climate, with a major focus on their role in modifying clouds and precipitation processes.

Prather is also the director of the Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment (CAICE), which focuses on improving our understanding of how aerosol particles impact the environment, air quality, and climate.

Born in Santa Rosa, California., Prather received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis. She was a postdoctoral fellow at University of California, Berkeley working with Nobel Laureate Yuan T. Lee. She became an assistant professor at University of California, Riverside and then moved to University of California San Diego as a professor in 2001.

Prather has authored nearly 200 articles in high level scientific journals. She is the recipient of the Haagen-Smit Clean Air Award, American Chemical Society Analytical Chemistry Arthur F. Findeis Award, the Kenneth Whitby Award, the GAeF Smoluchowski Award, the National Science Foundation Special Creativity Award, the American Society for Mass Spectrometry Award, and the National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award, and the Distinguished Scientist Award from the San Diego section of the American Chemical Society. Prather is an elected fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Association for the Advancement of Science, and American Geophysical Union.

And that needed to be clarified, considering how many beach front residents we have. If the ocean was a true source of exposure, every person in every condo and house would be in serious trouble.
