    Hate to tell you man, but I think it's just kinda the way wetsuits go. The same thing happens to me (I have an Xcel suit too, if that makes a difference).

    Wetsuits are designed to trap water—it's...

    I've been surfing for something like 10 years and had the problem that day. For me it was partly because the other days I was recently out, if I wasn't further back on the board I would have...

    I didn't realize this was at a contest at first either. Still, I think I hold that you shouldn't drop in on somebody regardless of the circumstance. The "don't drop in" rule is partly a matter of...

    Nice people.

    I just had an encounter with a very nice surfer out in the lineup today.

    Lately I've been using my dad's board and I'm not totally used to it yet. Today the waves were a little smaller than they...

    First guy up. He had the peak and was up first and riding. Other guy dropped in on him. No question.

    Some people only surf in the summer because they can't stand the cold or aren't invested enough to buy a wetsuit.

    Others, like me, would like to surf throughout the year but only get a chance in...

    I do not ride a soft top. All of my boards are older custom polyurethane/polyester boards, most of which were acquired and ridden by my mom and dad in the 60s through the 80s.

    You're an idiot . . .

    This seems to be a common sentiment but I really don't understand what exactly you think makes this true . . .

    I don't have much experience teaching people, but I'm just going to try to walk through what I do.

    When you feel the wave's taking you, put your hands on the rails next to your pectoral muscles...

    I always thought that jetties seemed like sort-of-phallic projections into the ocean. This just confirms it.

    To answer your questions:

    Yes, jetties make a difference. They allow sandbars to...

    Wave pools are interesting, but I still hate them. There's something about it that doesn't sit well with me at all. It just doesn't seem like surfing a man-made wave encompasses the vibe that's so...

    Because it would hugely limit the number of places where you could hold the Olympics. I think that's the main reason. Most countries have rivers, lakes, etc. so they can hold sailing, rowing, and...
