STREET PULSE for May 1, 2014

April 30, 2014 

This week we asked: What’s your take on local governments banning beach tents?

“I’m for it. The [large tents] are an obstruction, they take up a lot of space, and are dangerous when they go blowing down the beach.”

Whip Urbine, 43, Myrtle Beach

“It’s too bad for the big families with lots of children, but I can see why [the ban] for safety reasons.”

David Wilson, 33, Myrtle Beach

“I understand why they’re doing it, but I’m not for it. I like to get out of the sun when I’m on the beach.”

Jack Foster, 17, Myrtle Beach
