Poetic Justice For Surfers

Dear Editor;

Poetic Justice For Surfers

Dear Editor;

As a surfer born and raised on the Rockaway shores it was very disturbing to read all about law enforcement handing out tickets to surfers who were taking advantage of our free ocean during the hours that lifeguards were not on duty. However, I found it to be poetic justice when I was watching Fox 5 news and saw a
story of how a Rockaway surfer saved the life of a drowning girl swimming
while lifeguards were off duty.

Now, I don't recommend that anyone breaks the law, but in this case a lawbreaker saved a life! It is time that these senseless laws are re-visited. Did they have the nerve to give this hero a ticket? Stay wet!
