    Are you high? Next time, don't skip out on 2nd grade english class. You should also join the Navy, get experience and an education, and maybe you wouldn't be selling wings for $7.50 an hour. Noob.

    Why would Pr wana become a state anyway? They get all the benefits and don't have to pay property tax!

    I remember that haha good ole bill haha he got out and just sat around while we all surfed for hours ... guess he ate a lot of ice cream after that from the guy in the truck

    Surfed in Texas my whole life so that being said I have never really experienced any of this "locals". I went to PR the first week of this month for a week and still didn't experience "locals" in the water or out. So I guess it's how you present your self and respect I don't know! By the end of my sessions I was talkin up a storm with the "locals" had a blast best surf I have ever had and they respected me as much as I did them great vibe in the water. So i suppose if a dude gets thrown around by the " locals" he probably deserved it!!!

    I'll second all the posts about chill locals. I've been to PR three times now, much less than many of the people on here, and the only bad trip I had was my fault (stayed with someone that I didn't like, didn't have a car, etc). By and large, the people I've met down there are incredibly friendly, in and out of the water. The only time I've ever had any words with anyone in PR was some gringo-transplant-surf-instructor-thought-he-was-really-cool-with-his-dreadlocks guy.

    agree 100% except one thing to clarify - he doesn't mean Wings like Hooters wings he means Wings the beach store chain located in tourist areas, they sell garbage-y stuff that you can get at Wal-Mart for 70% cheaper

    never had any trouble with locals or ex-pats in PR, but I did encounter some 8===> head from PR in my travels in Costa... this guy was a typical meat head, talks over you, coolest thing on ice, my story is better than yours, im a "local", "I hump all the white girls", etc.

    So im surfing all alone at early one morning and this guy and his 6 other transplant buddies walk all the way down the beach and paddle out right in front of me and start vibing me: "oh its the gringo from last night, gringo think he can surf eh? What you know about the rocks, Gringo?" and on and on and on... like I wasnt welcome or something.

    A few days later I was surfing with some ticos and we saw said PR transplant. Before I could even ask their opinions of him one of them called him a kook and they all started laughing, discussion about how much of an obnoxious **** he was, and how much they all want him and his friends to go back to wherever they came from.

    Moral of the story: no matter how much of a local you think you are, the "natives" will always be keeping tabs on you. sorry, its long winded, but an appropriate story.
