"EROCK, I really enjoyed your $.02 in the forum trolls thread, that made me giggle. Good stuff."
Agreed....you are wise one Erock....about me, you nailed it.
I have always been social, I started surfing just over a year ago, I'm completely stoked, and have been kind of shocked to find the "surfing world" so clique-ish. I seek out those who feel the spirituality of surfing, those who find in it a personal practice of enlightenment, and those willing to share their advice, encouragement, and stoke. That is the eager side.
A lot of time on my hands Monday-Thursday normally.....with a computer to distract me from the decently paid personal hell I have made for myself :) Basically, I'm here when I'd rather be surfing but can't.
Anywho....I got up this morning and was paddling for my first wave before 6 AM.....the lights from the pier helped illuminate the water. It was amazing! The waves were peeling and glassy, the water was warm, and about 1/2 hour into it, the sun was so beautiful coming up behind misty clouds in the distance, ....I wish everyone to have that kind of morning at least once.
PS I could have done without the Tarpon scaring the mook out of me......and damn that dude who put the term mook in my head ;)
