I'll also throw this out there, WRV is open 9-9, every day. That's pretty convenient considering some of the other guy's hours.
WRV, I know you're watching. Hook me up with the friends and family discount on my next stick... look at me going to battle here for ya.

I actually am living here again!
Another Pete Smith tangent, I am trying to locate a board that was the first surfboard that both my buddy and I had as our first "real" surfboard. 5'8" Gordon & Smith, one of their first thrusters. He got it from Pete Smiths, and I got it from him. I actually had the board up until about 10 years ago, but I am not sure where it went.

the only thing I left my first marriage with was a real bad attitude and 2 pair of 10 oz everlast boxing gloves. I had a 2 room apartment in Ocean Spew (where the sewer meets the sea). 1 room just for fighting. My buddy was 5 inches shorter but we weighed the same. he was a fisherman and had his finger wacked by an exhaust fan on a boat. we couldn't box any more. so I found some snow chains I had in Colo. those things hurt! that room was fugged up when I moved. lost my 35 dollar deposit.

still don't like wrv, though their Fernandez epoxy longboards look nice and are cheap. I may pick one up. but for everything else, I go to freedom

As for surf shops and employees, they're like everything else in the world - 80 to 90% of them mediocre to crap, and the other 10 to 20% are exceptional and why we keep going back. Pick your spots, water the fertile land with your dough, and absolve yourself of idiocracy as the fools will bury themselves in Brawndo and ignorance.

On your account, I stand corrected, sir. Sounds like your visit to Pete's shop coincided with the time-frame during which Pete was having some of his well-known "issues" (which ultimately led to the sale of his shop). This doesn't excuse him from responsibility for your negative experience, but does help to put it into perspective.
God knows, we've all screwed people over at some point during our lives, whether intentionally or not. Probably good on all accounts that there was no firebombing involved!
