Nevermind the fact that showing people you can mount a go-pro and look like Gumby doesn't really make you look cool. Anyhow, I'm with ya man. I wouldn't consider myself an 'old guy', but I would argue the guys on longboards are a lot more fun to surf with. Less attitude, more aloha, more sharing, etc. The young'n have lost their stoke, maybe because they got coddled as groms instead of getting stuffed in trash cans.
    If I had my way, all popular breaks would function like the open scenes of Lords of Dogtown where the best guys get first dibs and the groms keep the kooks out of the area!

    We're social creatures... we're wired to feel more comfortable and safer with others of our kind.
    That must be why I, and presumably everyone else, just loves to get stuck in a traffic jam. Which of course is much safer and less chaotic than a crowded break.

    It a give and take situation. Dredging and storm take alot of spots ways only leaving a few. In the summers we are all put in one spot to battle it out for small waves . Then when fall comes we are still in that mentality unil most of us get back to out off season groove.

    I tend to surf the same spots in the summer but once fall comes I tend to hop around surfing spots from AC to CM . It just depends where I am at and what time i gotta be at work and what day it is.

    So yea... if you're the kind of surfer who'd rather surf off season, seek out an empty peak, catch waves at your leisure, not have to worry about "taking turns" or hitting someone and damaging board or flesh... yes... you ARE and antisocial freak who's genetic code should be plucked from the gene pool.

    Why can't everyone just be normal... and surf the same peak, wear the same boardies, and ride the same surfboard? Geeez...
    Creatures of habit. I usually surf a good jetty in my area (north or south depending on swell direction) I've got street cred there because if there's waves and I'm around then I'm there. I paddled out at the south end of the same town last week and felt like I was the low man on the totem (sp?) pole again. Guys clearly had their own pecking order there. Don't get me wrong, I got my share of waves but did feel like I was in someone else's territory.

    Yes its really wierd how people congregate. Force of habit I think! Just like everyone gets up late and shows up at the beach at 10am when me and a few lucky ones were the early birds and got the worm. Sometimes its fun to surf with my buds or the tourists for the stoke especially if the girls are out but for the most part I'd rather have my own peak or share with just a few. Winter surf is when its actually nice to see someone one else out there.
