Hey folks, a tragic death in the state of Washington due to platform dragging (aka teak surfing). The full article is here: http://www.thenewstribune.com/news/government/story/5497003p-4955816c.html
As many of you are aware, this sort of thing stirs emotions and the terminology "teak surfing" vs "platform dragging" causes a great deal of confusion among the general populous.
The American Wakesurf Association will address a letter and hopefully get a phone call through to the legislator that is considering writing a law to ban "platform dragging" in an effort to not confuse this dangerous activity with wakesurfing.
If any residents of the state of Washington hear of developments, I'd greatly appreciate being informed. If you would please post here, or send me an email directly, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks a bunch.
