[QUOTE=travy;122879]surfing itself will be the summer fad of '12 based on the crowds i'm already seeing. lots of new faces and boards already and the water is still in the 40's up here. prepare for the swarm!
+1. I feel like its the ripple effects of Quik Pro last year. Combined with above average warm air & water this winter.

I've been seeing an increase in new guys over the last couple years. With all the fashion trends and soul surfer movies this will be the year the **** hits the fan. I'm taking a no tolerance stand this year. Sure we were all new a some point but I gave the respect and didnt act like a board under my arm was the key to the cool club.
i remember even 3 years ago being with one other guy on a shoulder high barreling sunny day! i see more and more people every swell. the worst is that they act like locals. HA! this summer is gonna be the worst crowd wise. good time to take up night surfing
hey just wanted to see if my avatar works. go pros are cool, i feel like they are completely under-utilized. now if they made a go pro remote control (to start stop recording) or made more creative mounts for them.. im not crazy about the wrist strap mount that ive seen
wrong avatar picture!!
actually they have a start/stop wristband that you can wirelessly controll the cam with
and to everyone dont hate me because of my gopro aquired avatar hahah
thats the gayest thing ive ever heard…so wearing stupid colors and writing stupid **** on your board makes you look cool??? i rather let my surfing do the talking
I never said made you look cool. It just adds a nice requested style. You can complain all you want, but people will still be in colored wetsuits, people will still have artwork on their board, and people will still rock gopro's. It's how it is.
