This is a push from the big wavepool lobby.

Filming content at wavepools can easily be facilitated without drones. With drones out of the picture there can be a flood of dominant premium content coming from the growing numbers of inland reef passes

I was attempting to see if this thread is deleted because it's a political post linking directly Surfer political content.
Politics are totally acceptable as long as surfer initiates the discussion lol.

Government wants a monopoly on surveillance. Can’t have their subjects watching what they do.

This all about controlling information.

We’ll be seeing more of this in the coming months.

Next thing you know they’ll be taking your Ring doorbell and criminalizing phone cameras! You wait and see! It’s a power grab conspiracy that goes all the way to Mar-a-lago!

I didn't read the article but I'm all for banning drones. Fck those things. At least once a year I get buzzed while surfing alone at some out of the way spot along the coast.

West of the Atlantic. East of the ICW.
Speaking of drones, the police dept in my town got drones over the winter. This weekend was the first time we know of they were used to catch criminals. Police encountered a vehicle that had been reported stolen in Camden, NJ. Upon pulling the car over six youths all ran in different directions. Police deployed three drones. The drones tracked the six and all were apprehended quickly. Can’t hide from big bro in the sky. Defund the drones for picking on the criminally predisposed.

Police don’t want this type of surveillance to be used against them, hence the legislation under the guise of….

They aren’t banning drones. They’re banning private ownership of drones.

First they came for your drones…

In the Guerrero Sierra Madre the OC guys are using armed drones with some success in territorial disputes. Big suckers too. No idea where you’d buy something like that comes equipped for war.

If this prevents vanlife dipsh1ts from divebombing me while I'm getting my surf zen on I am okay with it.
Dont blame inanimate objects for bad behavior.

We need to bring back assholes getting punched in the face instead of banning things that assholes use in assholey ways.

I didn't blame the drones. Notice who I called the dipshits.

How exactly am I supposed to punch someone in the face when they are like a quarter mile away upon some cliff?

I am not the type to jump straight to physical violence, anyways.

Unless someone is doing something completely egregious like stealing driftwood from the beach.
