Navy could equal navy seal, never know
True... quick story about surfing Kookatan. Early 2002ish dating a girl that was a roomie with another chick which had a live-in boyfriend, a USN Seal. Early 2000s so this guy was a trained killer for real and frequently absent (His girl was super hot & lonely but that's another story). Anyway this guy is from out in the midwest somewhere and took up surfing as a hobby while being stationed at Little Creek in VB. As you can imagine ...fully kooked out ... a beefy guy on a funboard with Nautica trunks. Summertime kookatan right before dark. Tiny waves and a retardedly large crowd. I am surfing Pendelton and I see the guy in the line up. As I often feared for my life around him and stayed at his house so much with my girl, I was always super friendly with the dude. He misses a lot of waves paddling too far back on the board but can straight muscle into some of them. One such wave happened to already have a hot headed teenage grom on it. You know...the kinda kid that knows he's hot sh!t in the water, runs his mouth, and shares a common view held by many VBers about \"squids\" surfing. Boards collide and the kid (probably 16 or 17) starts ripping the seal about how he doesn't belong here, kook, get out of the water, etc. Seal calmly apologizes but kid and now teenage friend will not let it go. Teenage friend sits right on seal running his mouth. \"I'll beat that @$$.\" Nope. Teenage friend gets wrapped up with lighting fast speed and dunked under water a few times. Embarrassed. \"I'll beat that @$$\" and \"kook\" turn to \"my daddy is....\" and \"I'll sue you\". Awesome. Was the seal a kook? Yeah, but we already knew that. The real truth revealed was these to shredas were really just punk b!tches and the moral of the story is watch who you escalate stuff with.

Too many people run their mouths or flip the bird without understanding the consequences.
I have a Mike Tyson story from when I fought in NYC, out of the Gramercy Gym on 14th when Cus D'Amato ran it, with Bob Jackson on cuts, back in the day .... but this is a surfing forum.... so Iron Mike will have to stay in the archives.

You have to be careful about the kooks around these parts (vb), some of 'em maybe Seals. Maybe they wouldnt be kooks if they spent as much time surfing as trying to kill bad guys, hehehe
I'm surprised the kids here don't know any better. Funny thing about Croatan, during Pre-Irene it was crowded as can be, and it was everybody except the kooks were the ones who were surfing angry.
Some good stories. I find it pretty funny that some people will actually be willing to start fights over Va Bch waves.
As some people have mentioned, be careful who you call out, you can't always tell who is a badass or who is carrying a gun. My old man told us something years ago that is still applicable
