Localism in Lincolnshire?!

Its the middle of nowhere, the only people that use the beach are dog walkers, fishermen and the occasional surfer and to find the place you'll need to be from the area because its doubtful even to be recognised by SatNavs, so of all the unlikely beaches to find graffiti spray warning that this is a "locals only" spot, this one has to be the strangest.
Lincolnshire surf beaches are still uncrowded (a crowd at this spot is about 5 people!) , surfers acknowledge and talk to each other and the regulars all know one another, so localism just isn't even on the agenda and nor should it be.
As surfers we all love to travel and we all surf locations outside of our home spots, so there'll always be times that each and every one of us will experience being "non-locals", so just imagine getting aggro every time you traveled away or dishing out aggro every time someone you don't recognise strays into the line up at your home surf break...the surfing experience would really suffer.
Without trying to sound like a hippy, waves wherever they are, belong to all of us and sharing a few at home (if the laws of karma are to be believed) will be repaid in kind when you're surfing away. Also when you are traveling, a little courtesy and respect, the same as you would expect at home, goes a long way :)
