Like I mentioned in another thread though, I miss the days when everybody started out on a shortboard – maybe not a potato chip Al Merrick, but a shortboard nonetheless – and *earned* their way to a longboard. The older dudes would sit way way way out there on their huge barges and call out incoming waves and sets. Once the shortboarders got their fill, they would take the last set in ... classic times.

Point being, it’s an awful lot of fun to surf with longboarders that understand and respect the lifestyle.

the faggot called me a xxxxx xxxxx who can't surf for crap, yet got a firewire... I was full on furious @ him, just because he's a better surfer than me doesn't mean he's always right, what a faggot...
It's like driving... if an accident happens to a provisional driver, people just automatically assumes it's the provisional's fault since they arent as experience... what sorta xxxxx logic is that...
