pier 1, dude 0...


...even though the law states you must keep a 200 yard distance from the pier at all times, the occasional pier shooting goes down. Unfortunately for this guy, the pier decided to do its own enforcing with its barnacle encrusted pilings.

You will have to take off most of the back and sand the hell out of that thing. The barnacle will crucify it.

....and this, folks, is what keeps our local repair gods, such as IR in business.

Only wish I could have witnessed the hilarity of the attempt.

I would have loved to have witnessed the spectacle myself. Is there a good story there? Or just some fool doing something stupid? Or perhaps a combination of both-do tell

I may have seen this happen. A few weeks ago when there was a slight NE going on I watched these 3 guys paddle out on the east side, fairly close to the pier. 2 of them looked to be familiar with paddling etc... but the 3rd guy was obviously a fresh beginner.

It took about 45 seconds for this guy to get ripped into the pilings. He got swatted hard at the worst possible time too...board went bottom first into the barnacles.... Saw he made it through and in safely but didn't go down to check on the carnage.

Bet he won't do that again!
