    the on-going argument

    I was in an argument today about which cars are better, Japanese or American?!?! The argument went on an on and on with pros and cons from either side. My opinion was Japanese because thats what I drive right now and have a great car. Ultimately it came down to what the individual driver had the most experience with... So I ask this, long board or short board? Total opinion on experience or is there an answer?!?!?!?!?!? You tell me.

    stupid thread. a truly experienced surfer, whatever their preferences, knows to ride whatever tool is required to have the most fun in the given conditions. i prefer shortboarding, but w/ over 20 years of surfing experience, i know that to live & surf in nj (& on the east coast, for that matter) a longboard is required. part of me even enjoys longboarding more than shortboarding. it depends on my mood, but it's nice to slow down sometimes.

    btw, american cars FTW! i've owned 4 american-made cars & 1 foreign car brand, a nissan altima, & it was only "ok". the american made cars were well-made, nearly indestructable, & insanely reliable. my nissan was in & out of the shop almost constantly. my '92 explorer was a tank...at 186k, i hit a deer w/ it. it ran for 2 more weeks before dying. my '00 pontiac saved my life in a wreck during a snow storm. i ran the subsequent saturn to over 200k before the electrical systems crapped out...only issue this had was the head gasket shrunk & dry-rotted, so it needed oil every so often. i just kept a case in the trunk. i currently drive an '08 grand cherokee & the thing is a beast. the only issues i've had w/ it were the ones i created by being a dumbass off-road or in the snow.

    Ford pickup made in Mexico, Honda Accord made in US (Alabama). Once supports US Profits, the other supports US workers. You tell me, which one is more American??

    I say ride whatever you want, it's all fun. But if you're going to ride a longboard, learn to do it with some style. So many guys riding longboards these days with zero style. Nearly 10 feet of board and guys look like they are stapled to the board....I say, learn how to walk it.

    Ive always driven a ford. They are tough trucks, easy to fix, parts are easy to find and never an issue. There are made simply as opposed to more complex foreign cars. I dont need a lot of gidgets and gazmos in my automobile. Unfortunately Ford is now owned by Obama but what are you gonna do....Chris Christie for Prez.

    Short Boards are usually more fun for me...I like speed

    if chris christie is elected president, i will be immediately emigrating to a country that actually gives a **** about providing a quality public education. the only good thing that man has done for the state is the measures passed to protect barnegat bay, & they didn't go far enough. he is a cretin, a liar, a thug, & a traitor. i sincerely believe he was elected b/c the majority of the people in nj didn't want another go-around w/ corzine & there was no viable 3rd choice.

    Obama nor the tax payers own Ford, the Ford Family is still the majority Stock Holders ............

    I started out with 1971 (stage 1) Bronco with 302, it would fly but 2 thirsty for the 15 gallon gas tank. Since then owned 12-15 Ford SUV's as everyone good enough to buy another and another ...............

    Different boards for different conditions

    Far as cars I am partial to Euro's , Landrovers, VW's / Audi. I have put more miles on a Euro car than I did any other domestic or Japanese car I have ever owned. I dont beat on my car either unless thats what there made for . I do 95% of all the maintience on all my vehicals so I know it done right
