Why Jet Ski Tow-In Surfing Is So Bad, 3 of 3

At Mavericks in California: "And they act so innocent. They drive up and say, "We hope that we don't bum you guys out or anything." And then we say, "You do bum us out." And do they turn around and go back? No. They sort of back off at a distance and then go joyriding. They go inside and tear up all the little waves and invariably some things you don't see. They're tearing up kelp. They scare the crap out of the birds, seals, sea lion, and sea otters." (Excerpt from Dr. Mark Renneker, quote appearing in Surfer's Journal, Summer 2001, pg. 112)
