    If you are real

    Gruvi, if you want attention, drama, meet people, try white water kayaking, and join a kayaking club. From my limited experience surfing is an individual activity. Surfers resent people invading their space, experience, waves, and lifestyle. Your demanding of “instant acceptance” in the surfing community is not going to work (obviously).

    If there are just a few people out I’ve always have had fun just being a total klutz but having fun riding waves on my belly, knees, feet, and sometimes head. If there are a lot of people out it are hard to stay out of the way, doge SUPs, and I get tired of dirty looks (not a fun experience).

I drove since 4 am and its sad to sit here reading some of peoples rude replies. Evidently you should take on another hobby since surfing isn't helping brighten your mood at all.
    maybe you should take a hint (4 pages worth of posts) and understand that your conduct on this forum has been nothing short of extremely annoying to the point where people literally can not tell if you're a serious person or just trying to troll them. adjust your attitude and approach and maybe things will change.

    Gruvi is a senior member and I'm not?!! C'mon dude, I'm a newb too, get in the water, you'll figure it out! Surf w/people you know and ask them.

    this is a time bomb ticking

    OK ok, first off, why aren't you taking anyones advice? Why aren't you just going to rent a board or put a sticker over the little baby ding that i'm sure it is. and don't tell a surfer on this forum that he should get another hobby. thats quite the insult. you have your head so far up your butt that you are oblivious to any advice that someone tries to give you on here.

    I say "aye" in the banning of Gruvi, because only of his abusive behavior of the forum, his relentless useless forums, his lack of taking good advice from surfers that know what they are talking about, and his obliviousness to what he's destructing on this forum that many people, including myself, have enjoyed reading, and arguing, over the past years.

    I have taken your advice Gruvman and I have taken up baking. I currently have pumpkin muffins in the oven...smells yummy! My mood is so much better now, thank you!

    seriously man, i hope you don't act like this in the water or at least have enough common sense to go to uncrowded breaks.

    what this guy said is spot on. this is not a typical sport that can be learned quickly. it takes YEARS to get proficient and most guys who already know what they are about will demand that dues be paid to get there. no amount of internet advise will shorten that path for you, only water time will do that. about the only thing that MIGHT help you get accepted in the water is surfing in winter but even then you need to be respectful, follow etiquette and keep your mouth shut. I'm not gonna sugar coat it for you and feed you line of crap, if you want it bad enough, you WILL pay your dues then you will get where you want to be. no amount of shortcuts will work.

    As if! Go back and look at this guys very first post on Swellinfo - pretty much says it all. Surfing right next to the Belmar Pro and getting in the way.

    honestly the way you guys are reacting to gruvi is pretty ridiculous. if you're so "annoyed" by his two threads up right now, why are you even reading them. if you see a post with his name under it, just ignore it if it stresses you out that much. go about your business on the forum like you usually would and don't go into these threads hunting for gruvi's crazy posts

    can't we just put this to a vote (to bad or not to ban)? Somebody start a thread with one of those voting things at the top and then we'll just be done with it.
