Any surfing lawyer types out there?

Postby No wind & 10' » Mon Nov 14, 2011 12:04 am

Saturday morning I was issued a $99 ticket for surfing the north Columbia river jetty (Little Waikiki) for not paying Washington State Park's $10 day use fee. I'm not sure if this is legal after a friend sent me this article about " Two Eugene surfers win case against Forest Service user fees."

Link to article: http://members.efn.org/~surfride/news/court-case-11-15-97.html

I'm hoping to find someone who might know how to fight this? I hate to see our free access to the ocean taken away, seems like a fight worth taking on. $10 a day or the $99 parking ticket seems a little excessive don't you think?

$ 10 a day is too much to surf the premier break in the entire Pacific Northwest ? I think not.

Yeah, the case with Siuslaw was well done. The stipulation was having to park on the jetty which was Army corps and not NFS. So it may depend on where you're parking.
