I really don't understand why PCB has these drownings so much more than other beaches. Is it just the location ? I've been in PCB all week & there has been rescues all week !!!

Because there are no lifeguards, a flag system that is designed to supplement not replace a lifeguard system ,and locals and politicians who are content with blaming the victims, many of whom are attempting to make rescues themselves when they drown.

"idiots" who if you live here you most likely benefit from the $s brought into our community by them. "idiots" who are important to our economy. "idiots" who will spend their vacation somewhere else if we don not protect them and educate them properly. "idiots" who are fathers,mothers,sons,and daughters,to someone who loves them.
Typical response from a local idiot jackass and proves my point made earlier.

If you tourists want life guards then you can damn well pay for it. Not only do you idiots frolic in the water when there are double red flags, but now you want someone to be hired so someone else can rescue you from your stupidity. They should charge another 20 dollars per night for bed taxes to pay for it.

More people drown on the short coast of Alabama.

Plenty of Tourist Development money to hire Life Guards, but the Economic Scam Artists blow it on concerts, excessive salaries, high rent, stolen Yachts and stolen Mansions.

People died over that too.

If you can't properly spell your home state of Alabama then YES, BY GOD, keep your stupid ass there.

Information about surf conditions is available for those who LOOK. The Internet is a wonderful thing! Locals are a wonderful source of information! So is the tv, radio, THE FLAGS OUT AND ABOUT, the flag system that's posted in various brochures and elsewhere. But no, just blindly go some place, clog up the roads, think EVERYONE is supposed to cater to YOU because YOU are a tourist. Yeah, please spend your money elsewhere, IDIOT.

Thank you. I heed the warnings & know the flag meanings ....& red or double red means my family & I do not get in. I was wondering if it was the location PCB is in. I've been to other beaches & they were not so rough & didn't have the amount of riptides.

Well buddy when we come into town & spend anywhere from 1200 to 2000 a week just for a condo, eat out at the local places at 70 bucks a pop ..& hit Pier Park for shopping .. Then buy shirts & all kind of things to take home to our family .... Then we have damn well paid for a life guard or two . But everyone should stay outta the Gulf when it's Red & double red !!!

Drop dead from a meth overdose, you nasty gap-toothed Kentucky hick. Get it?

Btw, yes I do live here and hate dumb b1tches such as yourself. If you think our beaches are so dangerous then GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Take your MEMEME entitled self and all the money you claim you spend ELSEWHERE. How about Destin? Mexico Beach? Santa Rosa Beach? Shoo fly, shoo.

Oh, and one more thing, you weird ass freak who loves to ask about people in accidents (thought I forgot, did you?)...anyone who talks constantly about the amount of money they have and drop at a place means that they are doing good to have a pot to piss in. Bragging about the amount of money you have means NOTHING to ANYONE here.

I eagerly await your response. I love bashing your stupid self. Warms the black spot where my heart used to be!
