I want to complain about this content:

  • The way I see it is that the working fishing folk use this part of the beach out of necessity for access points, tide patterns etc all demand and dictate this ...... the surfing few, and I'm sorry I do not buy into the whole "community" thing as in all my years i've never seen more than a handful of surfers bobbibg about at any one time .... use this part of the beach out of convenience. Not forgetting It is near the lifeguard station which they seem to use as a base, which begs the question do they distract their pals who's eyes should be on the beach goers. As for consultation, the surfers have a very weak argument I'm afraid ..... were dog walkers and kite flyers and the like consulted .... Was I as I love to watch the boats come in early mornings whilst having breakfast atthe lifeboat cafe ..... No of course not and why, because it's common sense to move out of the way when boats are landing. It seems that the apprently offensive signs "attacking" surfers have needed to be visable as quite clearly they, or a few, ignored the request of NNDC to stay clear of the incoming boats. Mr Kewell complains he wasnt consulted but why should he be consulted, are his business premises registered on the east beach which would quite righfully give him consultation rights ? The surfing community risks alianating themselves further over this issue, the gentle waves are the same all along the beaches of Cromer so why is it an absolute must to surf in an area of working boats ? ( I am open to listen to reasoning on that point ) .... perhaps posting the prom parking rules would also be a useful to the surfing community, just a thought ! ....
