"Never understood this mentality, either you love surfing or you don't. Don't use family as an excuse to NOT drive an hour or two to the beach. Why not bring the family along? Why not try to instill the same stoke in your kids as you have... oh wait.... "
just shut your hole man.
tommyh is one of the few REAL CHARGERS on the Delmarva. Like FReezing Balls well over head FEB/MAR Bomb swells, when most of you turds are far away tucked into your beds at 7am
Of course you would not know this since you Live so fing Far Away, Kook
I can sympathize. I consider myself very lucky to be working and living within a 15 minute drive to the break (some people are luckier). I have been guilty of turning down better job opportunities because it would take me away from the coast. And I'm talking about just the East Coast, with whom I have a love/hate relationship due to the inconsistent crappy waves.
Do what you need to do.
yeah, a 5 year old and a 7 month old don't really lend too well to making day trips considering the 5-6 hour round trip. I used to think the same way, then I moved away from the ocean and opened my eyes. If I hadn't moved I would still have this close minded view as well. I still prefer surfing to anything, but my current reality doesn't permit me to partake as much as I used to or would like.
Seriously, you can smell the Kook through the LCD. >>>>DawnPatrolSUP<<<<< the name says it all, especially when you add in the? 2.5 hour drive to the Beach? What a Joke
born and raised in SD, I took a job that sends me to all corners of the country for extended periods of time. I know how much it sucks to not be able to surf at a moment's notice. I've been doing this job for 18 years, and I'm getting ready to "pull the plug" in 2 years when I'm eligible for my pension. I'm still relatively young, and have purchased beachfront property in the Pacific Northwest as my retirement property.
FWIW, I spent 6 months in DC during the wintertime, and had no issues driving out to OCMD and Outer Banks on my spare days....during the dead of winter, 40 degree water. One of the best times of my life, along with the time I was sent out to Charleston SC and stayed at Folly. Being a Left Coast guy, I was surprised at the quality of surf you guys get out there.
In other words, don't pity yourself....get on it and GO.
Kid Rock, when were you in DC? I remember meeting a guy from California, staying in DC one epic swell in December, I think in 2004 or something. Some of the best barrels I have ever had, including over seas, still have the pictures in my head.
