do you hear that pickles? thats the worlds smallest violin playing just for you.
first gloved session of the season I lost my grip while loading my log on the roof of my car, dropped it from over my head straight on it's rail, strait across my front quarter panel and left a solid dent/crease. I am still yelling expletives every time I see it, this was in November. Log 1; Car 0. Thanks for the solid glass job, Austin!
haha, this is an awesome thread. I got so tangled in my leash today that my head was underwater and my feet were in the air and I couldn't come up. I had to crocodile roll to break loose. I came up gasping and realize two dudes were just staring at me. Mind you this was in-between sets in really calm conditions, no waves anywhere insight.
I have a Soma blow-up case...So I was waiting on the train platform and because of the cold temperature the air shrunk and I had to blow up the bag more. So I was kneeling down on the ground blowing into the case, when a cop comes up behind me and asks what I'm inhaling. Is that air in there? What is that thing? I'm like, it's just air...and he says, ok just checking what you are doing there.
Busted my ass at work all day in order to get off early enough to catch a sunset session last year. While getting dressed I locked my keys in my company truck. I couldn't call my boss for a spare key because I was supposed to be working so I had to pay 50 bucks for a locksmith and didn't even get to surf.
Surfed DP about 15 years ago. I got out to go pick up a buddy and come back so I just stayed in my suit. On the way back I get pulled over for speeding in the state park. I had a felony warrant on me so I ended up going to jail in a fullsuit. The cop was cool though. He let me grab my shoes and underwear. He still works at the park, I don't think he remembers me but I remember to slow down when I see him.
This is my first winter, so my sob story is limited/standard.
1- Days are too short
2- Changing outside. Especially on the days I stay in too long. When your rigid, there's no quick way out of it
3- Not getting home for an hour and then having to flush the gear
4- Waiting up for Santa
dif take - am parked behind 'angry aggressive surfer w/no friends.' he gets out of
water to his car. he looks at me so i wave - cause i really want no part of this guy.
he chooses to wave back and promptly drops his cherry longboard and smashes his
glassed in fin….he looks back at me LIKE I DID THIS….and i am worried….but instead
of busting the longboard over my head…..he bursts INTO TEARS (he's over 40)…and
collapses onto the ground. i drive away. with the twilight zone tune playing in my head.
