    You gotta study up on your history.

    Wet suite is not a new term. This is a sophisticated crew here, remember, and the use of the term is a reference to the ancient Hawaiian tradition of the Pulo...

    yeah, I already have suit that goes over the chin. I still have the problem and spend time between sets pulling it away to keep it clear of the throat. Below the chin is not even remotely doable. I'd...

    Wetsuit puking

    I wonder if anyone else has this problem. I wore my hooded 5 ml suit for the first time today (don't start with the overdressing comments; my 4 ml is shot with holes) and a continuing problem reared...

    I agree with all this. I ride a long board for chest high and smaller and fish/shortboard for bigger. I live next to a river and bought my first SUP this past spring. I took it out in the surf and...

    Been surfing since 1987 and that may be the best summer I can remember. My memory's not great. Maybe that's part of it. But man, it was fun. And yesterday was just as good as it gets round these...

    This all sucks to read. I surf pretty regularly near Lake Como and geezus, the swan population of that damn lake is ridiculous. I mean, 4-5 swans on a lake is pretty. I get it. But this is like a...

    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...
