    This.

    Your boss is right. Surfers aren't going to spend 40k on a road vehicle. If I had 40k to blow on just surfing, I'd take boat trips in Indo every year for the next 20 years. That'd be WAY...

    LOL, yeah. Always always always drain thoroughly before any potential action. If you have normal plumbing, just standing upright and bending all they way down like you're tying a shoelace or...

    Bouys held solid all night and this swell finally rewarded me with a bunch of big fat HH+ mushburgers covered in kooks. Oh well, at least I caught a bunch and got some exercise. I should've skinned...

    No, it's awesome. It only feels like a curse when the waves are flat, or the winds onshore, or you have some obligation that you ditch to paddle out. Or the other way around.

    I looked it up and there's all sorts of tactical gear for self defense. I think this guy had a telescoping baton. Maybe it was electrified. I was too far away to tell. My favorite of what I saw on...

    Saw something pretty crazy. The local beaches allow on-leash dogs, but many people just let them run around off-leash. I've seen some really kick-ass training, like a German Shepherd which just sat...

    Why bother with SanO when Trestles is right there? Sick wave even on a mediocre day. It should be obvious, but try to leave flexibility in which day you surf. Onshores and flatness happen here too....

    Per capita nonrenewable emissions are what matters. Whether the source is oil, gas, or coal makes no difference. US is around 20 tons, China less than 3 tons.



    Good for us. Oil is irrelevant....

    Yes, but I felt like my throat was closing up, so I stopped. I think I'm slightly allergic to it. Sometimes I feel the same thing when eating soup made with the tops of the trees, but milder.

    Waikiki hands down. There's plenty of other crap to do on Oahu if the surf is flat, but you're probably not going to say "Oh, I'll just pop on over to Tahoe or San Fran" if SC is flat. I mean, you...
