Consider:

1) Surfers on a wave are just as cabable of inflicting serious injury on another surfer just as a windsurfer could.

2) There is a greater chance of a surfer on a wave colliding with another surfer since there are a lot more surfers closer together than there are surfers and windsurfers close to each other.

3) Fast moving surfers on a wave often come within feet or even inches of other surfers paddling out, yet there is no law against this. But wait...... there should be a law against this if this bill is about safety. (which it isn't.) Nontheless, under this bill windsurfers are expected to stay more than half a football field away, while surfers come within inches of colliding with each other.

4) There are already posted rules in favor of surfers even without this bill.
