    Not necessarily. I've been married for 5 years and my wife would not be happy about me taking a week long trip and it has nothing to do with trust. We both only get 3 weeks of vacation a year with...

    +1. I could ride a skateboard when I was 5 so I guess that makes Tony Hawk a ***** compared to any kook who can manage to stand up for 3 seconds on a short board. I could ride a bike when I was 5...

    Seriously. I was down in Wrightsville beach a month ago without my board. I had some free time, rented a 9ft soft top board for $15, and had a blast for a couple of hours in knee high surf. Best...

    What you say is probably true about a short board being more of a workout, but nobody is saying that you should never ride one. We're only suggesting that you start on a long board to get your skill...

    I'm not there yet, and I honestly may never make the transition to a shortboard. Don't know if I'll ever want to. At this point in my life I'll be happy if I can consistantly ride a long board well...

    That's the best advice I ever got when learning, and I foolishly ignored it. I started surfing when I was 40 and thought I would pick it up easily because I was fit, had good balance, and...

    That's usually about all it takes. Wasn't it always the kid who was a little strange that got picked on in school?

    I admit I was beginning to have my doubts about gruvi, but I'm glad he's legit.

    If I may... you guys are pretty good at sniffing out ninjas if, in fact, gruvy is one. My first reaction when I read his first post was that he sounded like me a few years ago when I first started. ...

    Why do I wear a cheap watch? Because I'm cheap and I ONLY wear a watch when I'm surfing, so why do I need an expensive one? Is this trendy? I don't know, I've never really paid attention to what...

    I'm 44 and I definitely don't rule- in fact I just started learning to surf a few years ago :) If you want to see some stares from the young guys try being 44 and kooking it up in knee high surf. ...

    That's been my approach. I'm new to surfing (second year) and I picked up a 9' long board on Craigslist for a few hundred bucks that had a good number of dings but was water tight. My second time...
