i wana do it just to say i did.
I almost had that accident once. It was about 4-5 years ago, back when just North of the Avalon pier used to have a really nice steep bowly body boarding wave that was like a skatepark of spitting little barrels. Well I had just made the paddle out, full suit, grey cloudy day, and all of the sudden I feel like I'm sweating in my suit. And then I Felt it. A terd, or was it just a pile of slimy ****? I managed to get out of the water in time, ran up under a rental cottage (it was 6 A.M. too luckily) and just as I got my suit down the sewer discharged. I made a quick turtle nest and was back on my way. It was a beautiful session after that.
Ok so my turn to get totally ripped on. So I am new to surfing (2 years ) having skim boarded for 10 years in So. Cal before moving to Maine. I am a late starter at 44. Im used to being able to **** under houses in Malibu as no wetsuit required. So I work in the afternoon and this October I wanted to go for a short session before work.The night before I had eaten some tofu, corn, and rice. I get to the beach and the porta ****ties have been removed from the beach. Right as I get out of my vehicle I get the big chamber drop. No time to drive inland as I have to be at work soon. I paddle out to waist high clean in my 4/3 booties and gloves.I do my best to hold it but just cant and it blasts. I figure it will wash its way out but being ignorant I soon found out it just spreads out plus I am wearing those tight short rash guard pants.
So there are like 5 other guys in the water and im surfing away from them so they wont discover my nastiness. The feeling of sitting on your board with the eureka pile is super unpleasant. So I get out after a while, tuck my suit into the booties, and drive to the girlfriends place while she is at work and clean up in her shower LOL. Corn does not really digest cliche is correct. So,
Neoprene holds on to smells for a long time. Now I know. Now I have with me a Walmart 5 gallon bucket at all times. Ill never do it again. Having this direct experience was helpful for my knowledge base.
So let the ripping ,*****, bashing, comments begin for some of you. Ego is a fascinating and at times fun part of us humans. I give my share of comments on this site and its now my turn to take my lumps.
Never happened, and it won't. If I feel ill, why make it worse.
The age old question is not whether you popp your wetsuit but where are the waves, hommie.
yes i have and i tell you. dont do it in the winter. in fact try not to do it but **** happens hahahaha
about 12 years ago, during labor day hurricane swell in nj i had my situation. the sets were relentless, but epic. we had already drifted about a mile down the beach. after several hours in the water and struggling to get outside of another set, it kicked in. saw a macker coming towards me and couldn't hold it in any longer...
good thing was, i think i had a springy or longjohn on, so i just pealed it off in the water before i went. it sucked, but had no other choice. i couldn't imagine actually going inside the wetsuit, knowing i'd have to peel it off later and deal with the mess. maybe gg allin would enjoy it, but not me.
