LA Surfers Assert Their Independence, Surf Malibu En Masse Despite July 4th Beach Bans
I guess we should have seen this coming.
Today, despite an official beach ban in LA County, hundreds of surfers have flocked to Malibu, where one of the best south swells of the season has turned the sand-and-cobble point into a conveyor belt of human enjoyment.
Whether this should be considered a mass act of treason against the United States and its elected leaders or an official protest against an un-American enforcement of laws (a right which is guaranteed and protected by our Constitution) is for the scholars, lawmakers, and judges to decide. What we can say for sure is that it looks like a grand old time, as we just watched big Al Sarlo rip a screamer from First Point to the pier on Surfline's Cam of the Day.
It being July 4th (and a Saturday no less), one could only expect Americans to take their Independence into their own, disease-riddled hands. No doubt they'll celebrate their victory over "the man" with a cold beer, grilled hamburger, and few thousand extra covid cases to sprinkle on top.
Who's got fireworks?
