Yes, the level of brainwashing is surely at an alarming rate.

It is merely common sense. When you draw from something living, it will adapt to make up for the shortage. We are meant to use our natural resources, but not at the rate we have been. If you add to something living it will become bloated and get distorted. The petrochemical revolution is all that needs to be said of the latter (from landfills to cars).
Most of us were born into this rush-of-a-life society that was created. That's why I usually like the people I meet in the water. We tend to be more laid back because we have something to be grateful for and something which connects us to nature. We're lucky.
Put whatever label you want on it, the problem is a result of greedy, complacent people.
There's some fat for everyone to chew on.:p
Complacency is the word as long as people are fat dumb and happy with big gas tanks, donuts and britney spears nothing is going to change but then why don't the oil giants invest and throw some money at alternative energy i mean they save billions by not having to advertise, or stop offering HUMMERS for heavens sake and do some R&D about a vehicle as "cool" as a hummer but that gets better mileage or something i mean the motor has been around for quite a long time and this is the best combination of power and efficiency? Well whatever looks like another saturday swell, I'll escape from the madness and retardation of society in a brown jersey barrel this weekend. . .
Preach it. I would add greedy and short sitedness to the list.

And these days, the opinions of the uninformed, opinionated and the rich, politically powerful weigh much more than those of the educated and informed.
The best is when the anti-environmentalists begin to blame the educational systems and non-corporate sponsored scientists for the theories.
Peer review my friends, peer review is the most important factor.
Duh Duh Duh
1, we have had two great weekends in a row. You arent now entitled to great waves every day.
2, go to a jetty like oc inlet and NSIRI that blocks the chop but still has all the swell.
3, for example, last weekend i was at NSIRI in the morning because the south winds made everything too blown out everywhere else. The jetty was a filter which made it just clean waist/chest lines. Then when the wind switched, i had the luxury to go to dumps and have a great session with 3 others at the whole beach. so many perfect spitting waves went unridden. I got all the others.
Dont cry, just surf wether it is flat, knee high, or overhead and epic. It is still better than school or work.
i didn't get the waves i payed for!
i want my money back brah!
yeah i have to agree with wonton... as a surfer you should be used to the act of adapting to the changing patterns.... always looking for that glassy shoulder... enjoying the challenges involved in the attempt to ride the rhythms of the atom. it beats the shart out of school and work for sure.
agreed totally with you guys surfing beats the crap out of anything else and these swells have been sick everyweekend but there's certain breaks around here in jersey that get realy realy good in straight NE swell that's all but i have no complaints and im not going to drive to OCMD for wind protection from a jetty, going for 3 saturdays in a row!
killer, keep your retarded nj ass away from here, we got too many moron western shore idiots that make the drive too often already.
