In order to create a safer surfing environment especially at the more crowded breaks, should surf school operators need permits in order to conduct business? There are some operators that hand the students a soft top and send them straight out into the impact zone without any instruction. Ive seen this at the popular surfrider beach in the middle of the summer with a descent size southwest swell hitting. This topic does not condemn all surf instructors. There are some that take pride in passing on the necessary knowledge that will insure a safe and enjoyable surf session for all. A permit system will help regulate surf instructors and make it so that any Tom, Dick, and Harry cant just pull up to a beach with a van full of softtops and send a herd of ignorant floundering wannabees out into a potentially dangerous environement. Maybe some proof of insurance would be a requirement also. Just a thought...
