He spends his time out of state now b/c he's got a major sponsor, but he got good enough to achieve that success by surfing NY whenever there was a smackable lip, no matter how small or mushy. For those of us who aren't sponsored we take what we can get. I surfed about 15 days in December, including 10 straight days from the sunday before christmas until the tuesday after. Every day was rippable except for that Thursday, and I ride a 5-10 thruster, not some 10 foot log. I have a buddy who moved out to Santa Cruz a year and a half ago for school and says he longs for empty east coast a-frames. And as for complaining about the cold, grow some f%cking balls. The wetsuits are so good these days it's summer all the time. And explain the logic behind surfing knee high waves being for kooks. So the less you surf, the better you get? Yeah, that makes sense. Go make your money, move to cali. Enjoy surfing chest high mush burgers with 200 of your closest friends. Oh, but make sure it hasn't rained in the past week, or you'll get a pretty nasty sinus infection. And make sure you don't paddle out at the wrong spot, or you'll get back to your car with slashed tires. And have fun trying to find a job with 20% unemployment. Good luck getting a cup of coffee without 10 hippie heroin addict losers asking you for change. Yeah, Cali Rocks!!!! The grass is always greener. I'll be happy to have one less surfer on the right coast. Good riddance.

Wish all here a peaceful 2011!
Sure sounds like he didn't get good here:
"This year, Stack opted for an independent study course load so that he could travel the world and surf. He spent a month on the North Shore of Oahu, surfing the Banzai Pipeline. He tagged along to Tahiti with Clay Marzo, considered the sportís most creative aerialist. In February, Quiksilver sent him to Australia to train with the surf coach Mick Cain, who used video analysis and mental techniques to improve Stackís contest readiness.
Stack returned from Australia transformed. In April, at the national scholastic East Coast regional championships in Florida, Stack qualified for the finals in four divisions, winning the Air Show and Explorer Juniors divisions. With a repertory of aerials and an ability to ride in the barrel of waves, Stack earned three perfect 10 scores during the tournament, an unprecedented performance for a surfer from the Northeast."
Point is you get good surfing OTHER places that have QUALITY waves, not by how many times you go out.....

That is a defeatist attitude. If you are blaming your surroundings for your shortcomings you are doomed to fail. Whiney little b%tches like you will always be losers. Wahhh, the waves aren't good. Wahhhhh the water's too cold. Wahhhhh, it's too windy. Wahhhh, my daddy touched me. Grow some f%cking balls. Stop b%tching and surf. Stop making excuses. You don't get better by going somewhere else. You don't get better by spending more money. You don't get better by changing your gear. That stuff won't do sh%t for you if you don't have the fire. There is no substitute for hard work. If you can't paddle out in knee high slop when it's 20 degrees then you just don't have the fire. What will help your surfing more? Surfing ****ty waves or sitting on your lazy a$$ playing video games and jerking off? You lack the hunger. You lose before you even start playing the game and no surf trip or change in locale will help you. But I guess this is America, the land of the handout and the free lunch. Why would this forum be any different. Bunch of whiney f%cking b%tch a$$ p%ssies. Go clean the sand out of your vagina's, and while you're busy with that, I'll be all over the first ripple I see at Hammels.

Haha!!! Right on Santos!
Surf To Live, Live to Surf. think about when you were a kid and you were psyching to ride the white water for your first time, think about the first time you pulled into a close out barrel. or even the first time you cracked the lip.
Santos is right, you could be surfing on a plank of wood. its the surfer and their experience of the water. surfing is not a sport but a soul search.
yeah i work my ass off to get to surf San Diego twice a year. but its not handed to me
and yeah california gets skunked too!!!!
this summer was the worst summer for waves on the west coast.
my buddy from OB was so butt hurt when i told him all the swells we got this summer and the Cane swells that had that "Cali Juice"
too this day the best day i ever got to surf was pre igor at my favorite Point break in NY.
no waves will ever compare to that day because of the feeling of home and pride, as well as the STOKE!
go eat your heart out battling all those crowds at your precious WORLD CLASS SURF
home is where the heart is ...you will always be a NEW YORK EAST COAST SURFER
so like santos said
give it up
