    Look Out for the Waves!

    waves at Huntington Beach, California

    As seen up close the waves in HB can get dangerous. There is not always a lifeguard present, so take it easy when the tide is high. Pay heed to the official warnings. Of course, the surfers won't pay any mind and head high, chompin' at the bit to get down and "shread" the tide.

    Look at the black spots against the wave in the picture- they are surfers!

  • Don't break your neck body or boogie boarding!

    by ncroberts Written Jan 22, 2005

    If youv'e never been in surf before and you want to try bodysurfing or boogie boarding, just be aware that even a small wave can drive you into the sand headfirst. Many people break thier necks when they hit the sand.

    It's certainly OK to try these sports, but just be aware and keep your hands out in front of you if possible and be careful.

    Do not use your cell phone at the library!

    It can cost you $$$$$$! Or what do you think about this?
    "HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. - Using a cellular telephone in a city library could cost incessant yakkers plenty - up to $1,000.

    City leaders adopted an ordinance, which takes effect Sept. 15, that bans all cell phone use in libraries, including talking, text messaging and ringing tones of any kind.

    First-time violators will be warned, then fined $250 if they don't comply. A second offense gets a $500 fine and a third offense gets a $1,000 fine.

    Huntington Beach civic leaders believe those may be the nation's stiffest fines for cell use. The ordinance was prompted by complaints about annoying rings and people walking around or standing at computer terminals chatting loudly.

    "People are really getting sick of these things with the screaming and yelling and these anguished conversations," said Carol "Miss Manners" Page, founder of CellManners.com, a site dedicated to promoting cell phone etiquette."

    Cops

    by kenstan Written Jul 26, 2008

    They really don't have much crime in HB so the cops walk around in shorts down the beach arrest a drunk once in awhile and give tickets so don't smoke or drink on the beach or pier

    Rip Tides

    by kenstan Written Jul 26, 2008

    Rip Tides are currents that pull you out to sea and you can't swim back against them. If you get caught in one swim to the side until you are out of the current then swim back to shore.
