Hells yeah. Less than a month since I moved and I miss Guam already. Dare ya to show up there and tell someone you're entitled to surf or that everyone's equal or it's all good. Paying dues is the only way (and chances are someone will still fight you if only because you are white). It ain't pretty but that's the way it is. If you get to ride believe me you've earned it in time and blood. Sometimes it sucks but when it works in your favor you appreciate uncrowded waves.MY FIRST EXPOSURE TO HOW SERIOUS SURFING COULD BE WAS A SARCOPHOGUS. when I was 5 and a half years old, we moved from Corpus to Guam. we stayed at a friend of a friend's house. the people who owned this beautiful house had moved away. i asked why, the friend of a friend, said, "did you see the big stone box out front?" "yes" "their son is in there. he died surfing right out front, the house reminded them of him so they moved back to California." the house was on a reef break and the teenager had grown up surfing in Cali. there aren't that many surfers in Guam. when we left Guam, that house was the last place we stayed too. we moved to Cali and that's where i went from catching some waves in the whitewash to BEING a surfer. there really is a difference. some will understand, some will not.

Blah, blah, blah, I've read your many, many, many, many, many (ad nauseum) posts lil' fish. You're the quintessential jackass with a keyboard & too much time on your hands. You also enjoy bullying via the Net, tool. Get a life. Oh wait, I get it, your life is posting your drivel on this site.

1001- dude what are you even talking about? Over the BS come surf with me any time if you think I am a kook. Run the Ip, I am 15 minutes from sandbridge.
Flying (brown) eye claims to know me but I have been out of college since '09. Most people who "know" me have talked to me in the last 3 years.
We could all be so lucky to have a second coming of Andy Irons.

This happens every spring... Pack of dogs start barking and biting, trying to figure out who's the leader of the pack, at least for the summer. Timing is always the same... right about now, when all those unfamiliar faces start popping up in the water... and on the forum.
Last year, right around Memorial Day, I had my first run-in of the season, and vented about it here. Kind of a mistake now that I look back. So predictable...

If you're cool, and shut the F up, and watch, and listen, and take your licks, you'll be fine. I'll show you around, I'll give you some pointers, I'll give you waves, but don't get cocky and stupid. Stay humble, watch, and learn. That's about it. The Johnny Come Latelys who don't get it will sell their gear and move on to some other activity. They are the speed bumps in the water. The folks who fall in love with and respect the sport will stick around, and I'm OK with that.

I love the guys that let surfing/life piss them off to the point of ranting about other people and lawsuits. Don't worry you're only on this planet for a short time, its worth hating every minute of it.
