I used to be a fan of Surfrider until they threw spearfishmen under the bus in Southern California. Several years ago we had a fight over the establishment of Marine Protected areas. The City Of Laguna beach wanted its entire shoreline to be an MPA so that no one would hurt the views, park one their streets, and hurt property values. This was particularly egregious since Laguna has a lot of protected coves with easy beach entry and had traditionally been the place where beginner spearos got their start. We naively thought that surfers would be on our side since a lot of them were also spearos. We were wrong. They supported the closure and we last Laguna Beach. They can jam up the parking places and surf there and we won't get in their way. The entire spearfishing community now considers Surfrider to be the enemy.
