    Some people have too much time on their hands.

    You're anxious about what people say in parking lots?
    You're upset over comments from folks in re: the wave heights that they surfed?
    You're watching & criticizing people for standing on sandbars as waves roll in?... etc.
    Hahahaha! You're cracking me up. Skin a little thin for a Yank, dontcha think? See below, some of my favorite movie quotes:

    Barcelona (1994)
    00:10:30 How is that an improvement? ''Yankee deer go home.''

    00:49:01 Yankee, go home! -Mangiacaprini!


    French Connection II (1975)
    01:09:03 - You know what the Yankees are? - Yes. As in "Yankee go home."

    01:31:02 with "Yankee go home" tattooed on her chest?

    01:18:16 MAN: Yankee, go home! Down with Yankee!


    Blue Hawaii (1961)
    00:21:52 - This is my old job. - Like I said... Yankee, go home!

    It wasn't 7 feet on this swell in VA. That's just crazy talk. Maybe there were a few bomb outside sets like that, but we are talking average which means if you say it was 7 feet, that means in every set there was a 7 foot bomb at least. It was forecasted to be that big on surfline, but I have to say swellinfo nailed this swell. 3 to 4 feet, super punchy and walled up, with a few fast steep barrels mixed in especially on the inside. Maybe a head high set here and there.

    I can understand someone being stoked about this swell, but a lot of guys were hoping for quite a bit more (in the size department).

    So really philososurfer is right. No question. Probably a lot of people out there that agree with him, they just aren't going to take the five minutes like I just did to say it. Because really who cares. What matters is that if you are having fun out there, keep doing what you are doing.

    That all being said I'm about to paddle out for a 2-4 foot dribblers. Why not?
    God Bless you for being willing to chime in and call it like it is. Especially after seeing all the heat I've been taking for suggesting, as other posts have pointed out, that this mini-swell is being massively over-hyped.

    You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

    What S-Fish said.
    +1 & then some.
    Philo's like the north wind that turns a good swell into slop.

    Really? Go back and read all of my posts, then come surfing with me sometime. I believe I may have even responded to one of your posts before, trying to help you out. I give respect when it's due and draw the link at blatant "kookism". As much as you can't understand why I care about guys over-calling wave size, I can't understand why folks (mainly two of you) are getting so pissed that I'm disagreeing with your claims. You and I disagree, so what.

    You and your friends have apparently been lucky enough to score 5 days of epic overhead, while I and others have been content to have fun surfing 3-5ft imperfect closeouts (with an occasional corners, "bomb" sets, and barrels). Let's just ignore the fact that we've been surfing in the same place at the same time. Deal?

    So... it seems that you and S-Fish are quite the pair. I went back and had a look at some of recent forum posts. You really sound like a stellar individual. Below are just a few (of many) of your negative posts directed at others.

    To whitewater
    "Go away kook", and
    "You gotta be kiddn me. Take off the self-anointed crown, jackass, & spare us your sanctimonious craaaapola. Oh, and don't drink & post, Jerkwater."

    To cepriano
    "Jesus H Friggin Kee-rist, give the mirror a break, eh Narcissus...?!"

    To sharkhunter
    "It's like your momma use to tell you: if you don't have anything good to say, STFU."

    And finally, this very WEIRD one that has me worried that Chris Hansen from Dateline is going to come take me to jail for talking to a 14-year old (you) on the interwebs!
    "It's been a long, long summer here on Lake Atlantic. So, you buzz kills, you killjoys, you doomsayers & you nattering nabobs of negativity, you just go back to your bar stools & leave us optimistic, positive, hopeful types to our dreams our hopes our fantasies, yes, I said it, fantasies, big clean & green peeling away forever into the unknown with nary a tourist or a kook or a pollutant in sight, the perfect board underneath our feet(s), sliding into one gorgeous wet strong curving talking heaving wave after another...."
