I know I'm not the only one who is wondering... In California I know that the law requires that you don't ride on the bow, gunwale, or transom of a vessel while it is moving. I have often seen people riding on the transom of the boat to pass the tow rope to a wakesurfer. I have also seen people walk out from the boat onto the platform while the boat is moving and just jump right on to the wake. My question is: is there an exception to the "stay seated in the boat rule" when someone is wakesurfing? maybe as long as youre wearing a PFD?
My assumption is that it is Illegal however, I have seen it happen right in front of the sheriff and they didnt do anything.
Anybody have any input? Citing sources is always ideal! No one wants to hear your opinion when it comes to the Law!
