    So I am a NOMAD1
    My wife and i must stay put so we can make over 300k/ year... would you give that up?
    In my memeory bank I have about 30 to 40 locations I rotate. I have no choice so I just roll with it. I am a nomadic local (oxymoron - nice!) from Florida to OBX to Cali to Costa to hawaii. I am always going somehwere.

    I have never met a local I couldn't ***** slap off his high horse. I m 6'6" and 220 and my balls are bigger than some of these tough locals. I love when one complains and I pull up close and watch the bravery fade to pale fear. You ever hit someone in the face before they finish their threat? That can be very effective.
    That hasn't happened in years though because there are miles of surf with nobody in it. I was just in OBX, nags head and duck and I surfed twice daily with not one other person. That federal research pier in Duck rocks. And they weren't sloppy closeouts either. Surfers love to be around other surfers and then complain of crowded conditions.
    Lololollol!!! "Do you know my net worth, *****?" Bahhahaha take it to pipe and take on kianoa

    I live 30-40mins from the shore and amongst my circle of friends who live waterfront I live far but then again I'm still thankful of being as close as I am because there are those surfers who do live over an hour away and not all of us can live within 10mins of the shore. There isn't consistent swell in nj I manage to paddle out 1-2x a week in the winter and almost every day in the summer because of my job. Even people in nj complain about the water temp and weather but at least we get waves and can enjoy them that's all I care

    am reminded of good advice from charlie tram - a/c cab driver - who said to me way back when:

    doesn't matter how much $ you make; what matters is what you do with the $.

    I am suprised by the objections of the income I pull... or maybe that I mentioned it. Sorry, it was tasteless, you are right! I am, however, proud of it. It took a lot of work to get there. and sacrafice. and more work. and work

    I think I object to the fact that locals think they have more rights just because of proximity or something like that and usually it is all talk.

    i dunno - i still think it is a decent thread. a bit counter culture but I do like to press the opposing view.
    I wouldn't retract it bro! I will say this I used to hate the attitude I used to get from those kooks who lived right on the beach, I was just like do you know my net worth *****? Show some respect!

    i wonder whatever happened to the dude that started this thread? probably quit surfing entirely or switched to SUPing b/c he can be more of a wavehog & snake people easier.
