Or they'll figure it out once their egos no longer needs so much stroking. Either way, meh, they don't surf where I surf.
You’ll always have guys who want to argue about chemtrails, gmos, politics, cars or dolphin rape (this last one might actually be surf related). They drop in, kook out and then fall off; the front page that is.
Surfing is cyclic, in my life time I've seen its popularity wax and wane, just like all fads. Cepriano was saying the other day "I started surfing in 2002 and there's a lot more people now than then" (or something like that, sorry if I misquoted you Cep). I got a bit of a chuckle out of that, right before I ran out of fingers and toes to count on. 12 years is a long time in some respects and a blink of the eye in others. Anyway he’s right, there are probably more surfers now than 12 years ago, I dunno. It was crowded then, it’s crowded now. It’s been crowded for as long I’ve been surfing; except when it’s not.
Este es mi primer día. Homer Simpson gave me my mantra.
It is what it is.
Give it 5 or 10 years and the worm will turn man, keep the faith; it’ll fall out of fashion once again (it’s happened before). And, there will always be those who understand that it's not just a sport, a hobby, a great form of exercise or a fun way to spend an afternoon.
this too shall pass
It's like when you're at the doctor's office. Don't ask the question unless you're ready to hear the answer.

Three words back at you, but we will have fun and make this a puzzle since you like the suspense of trying to figure out answers that are meaningless to your life.
Three words similar in composition to those three you used: "_ _ _ _ _ _ yourself"
I agree. It's always been crowded. But it's always the same places. There are good crowded spots and good empty spots. It will always be, and always has been, that way... It definitely gets more "popular" and then fades over the years.

Happy to stroll down to RI and meet up face to face so you can learn more about me as apparently you're quite interested in my life that has nothing to do with yours. That, and we can solve the issue of your regular comments of condescension. There's lots of \"fun\" ways to modify behavior.
Again, please do not reply to this email. You must go to the following page to reply to this private message:
All the best,
Swellinfo Surf Forums
To the "holier than thou" crowd (it seems to be replicating itself in number here):
Take a look at the origin of these threads that seem to so very much irk you. Then look at the elements that progress them into mutated, off-topic horsecrap.
This thread was geared towards a topic of ocean hydrodynamics that is very much appropriate for a surfing forum. The original post has zero aim or attention towards anyone's outside life or ego.
Any one of a number of subsequent posts immediately derailed the content from said objective and decayed it into the cesspool that most web forums quickly become.
There's clear irony in the claims from these posters that "their surfing forum" is being infected with waste, when they are sowing the seeds of hate, tilling the soil with derision, and harvesting the crap themselves.
Ha, this guy really can't fight the battles he picks. I wonder who castrated him, his mother years ago or his lovely significant other in the current day.
You are a sad, shell of a boy, crackedinri. To not shoulder the weight of the situations you provoke, have a chance to avoid through a humorous response by your intended target diverting from and not engaging the conflict (earlier in this thread), provoke once again, get responded to privately instead of publicly (because your decisions shouldn't be anyone else's problem on here), then try and cower behind your fellow narrow-minded brethren.
Yes, people. We live in a society where what you say and do has consequences. Even if this presidential regime and nation says how you decide to act is not your fault.
To those of you shooting your mouths off to people you don't know behind the guise of an internet forum handle: go to Bridgeport, CT and say anything like this out loud to the commoners of that town, who you likewise know nothing about and who've done nothing to insult or harm you. Come back to us and report the results.
Bridgeport, CT? Is it that badass their?

You've been on this forum for a month or so and your word count is probably higher than every other forum member combined (except for PJB and gaffer maybe - no offense, guys).

You don't know me or my work situation. I've never written anything about it, so I don't understand where you see this invitation you speak of. Maybe I'm rolling like NJShred or maybe I work at McDonald's and have 5 kids to support or maybe I'm an over-anxious corporate slave.
You seem like an intelligent person, but for the most part, your posts consist of 500 words of vacuous drivel with about 15 words of anything meaningful. Please, go back and read over your last month's worth of posts. Read them out loud to a friend and ask him if you sound like an pretentious ***. Shoot for brevity in the future - everybody reading this forum will thank you for it.
Maybe it is meaningless, but maybe I'm looking for a career change and was seriously wondering what you did that allowed you to seemingly have so much free time on your hands at the ripe old age of 30something. Yeah, I asked the question, but I didn't get an answer...only another truckload of drivel.
