    I lived pretty insanely and came back in quite a state. Mostly ate rice and local stuff from local markets cooked on a camp stove. But also, it was 1998 and 3 of those months were in Ecuador, where...

    They made you get out to buy a badge? It's been my experience that I've never had to buy a badge so long as I had a board and was headed right to the water. I thought that was the rule, that they...

    I usually give folks a "whassup" if they're next to me, especially when I first paddle out. A lot of time people - especially those under 30 - seem shocked. That's one of the good things about...

    A few posters have said this is an exaggeration. I don't think so. When they did Long Branch in the early 90's it was a solid 15 years before I was able to ride a wave at the place where I had...
