Re: Surf Safety
One thing not mentioned that those new to surf fishing often overlook is to wear a wader belt with waders, particularly if you wear rubber waders that are not tight to the skin. If you happen to get knocked down by a wave, a belt can help keep some of the water out of your waders, which makes getting back to your feet much easier. Most times this is not a matter of life or death, but in some places it could be.
Rays are not usually aggressive. It's the ones that folks accidentally step on that usually cause the problems.
