no one's hating on him,and how do you gauge 'better than you?' i don't think you are an ASP judge,and even they are narrow-minded as to what is 'better.'
it's like the 5-year-old who plays blues guitar and is considered 'better' than eric clapton.well,i disagree,since knowing blues,eric clapton has a full lifetime of it.
little kid child star prodigies most often don't carry it through to adulthood,so,maybe we just hope he has a strong foundation and does not become a victim of 'too-much,too-soon.'
of course there are exceptions,mozart,slater,etc..
a la at his age and size he could be some sort of a circus act freak, but what happens when he grows and he's not a cute little kid anymore?
42's correct,so many idiots interpret and don't actually read the posts they reply to,or are just pissed off at this flat summer like me,or are just nasty.
i started a thread joking that in light of it the name of the site should be changed to 'no-swell info,' and no one got it or thought it was funny and inferred that i was criticising the site.i was venting frustration at the ocean,and since there has been and is no swell anywhere in sight we should start calling it that,because there is no swell info.
yeah,worst thread ever,sorry.
NJSurfer42 - I am 100% on ripping harder, which is why i love surfing. I don't do it to have fun, meaning just cruise on a funboard at sunset, i do it because i want to be the best i can possibly be, because i know i can be better. there is nothing more fun than that to me - which is why i surf as much as possible and miss many personal events in my life. You should check out the movie One Track Mind, by the moonshine conspiracy, its a great movie (they made thicker than water, shelter, and september sessions ect) and they talk to the top surfers in the world (competitively) and ask them why they love surfing. Kudos to this kid, i hope he continues to kill it
