    yeah, I've tried a bunch of different stuff, but none of it makes me hunger like surfing. Snowboarding deep powder is the closest, but bikes and kayaks aren't even close...imo, they're just cross-training you have to do to keep in shape for surfing.

    Did you ever decide where to take the wife for her birthday?

    Hey Saint, good to hear from you. Just spent my birthday chasing tubes in SD a couple of weeks ago, and am planning a trip to Cabo for the wife's b-day. Loved your advice on Nica, but the government refuses to help me pay for my kid to go to college....they say I make "too much money", LOL. Not enough bread on this go-round.

    Thanks for the kind words amigo. I'm still alive and have no new holes in me. If I ever go down, I'm taking at least one out with me.

    Peace and waves,

    STONE

    tommyh, I regret that it wasn't me....I was in DC in 2009-2010. But I promise that next time out, I will shoot you a PM. You seem to be highly regarded by the Delmarva crew!!!!

    Peace and olas,

    Maybe more like 5ish, short layover in MIA tho, either way was in Managua early enough to get in the water in Sandino later in the day. Seriously recommend the scoot. It was cheap as hell too.

    Maybe I'm rememberingit wrong. I could have sworn our flight to El Salvador was 4 hours maybe it was more like 4.5 idk, lol. I like to remember it as 4 just seems more within reach.

    I went to school in Hawaii as a teenager and then later moved back for little while longer. At the time living next to an excellent left did not seem like a big deal to me, as a matter of fact, surfing was not a main thing in my life at all and I was involved with sports. Most kids I knew surfed and I'd get out there, too, mostly for social thing and to just kick it. Over the years I have sure met lots of super die hard enthusiasts, from Michigan, Poland, and who knows where else not and what always got to me was that the further one lived from good waves, the bigger enthusiast one was. Met a guy from Italy who knew more about surfing, boards, etc. then anyone in 808 I ever came across. He was an okay intermediate but a A+ enthusiast.
    I love to surf nowadays, it's a nice, simple, activity. Low input, high reward. But it's not the only thing in my life and when I read a post from someone from Maine willing to sell a left kidney for more waves I would like to politely point him to the fact that, you know...YOU CAN MOVE, 9 times out of 10. They have few jobs left over in CA. Most times their surfing would get better and their hard core attitude stabilize. If it matters so much, why not...easy, brah. They sure have a fresh batch of dedicated haoles rolling into HI every year ready to out hard core everyone and live on ramen. Locals love them. Brazilians, too.
    I got out yesterday and it was worth it, it wasn't convenient but well worth it on my scale. And, yes, I worked far so it was a long drive.

    I'm in DC and wanna go surf! Need a ride...help

    Hi guys,
    I'm willing to go out surfing! I do bodyboard for around 17 years already and definitely need to go surf soon. I'm in DC and I'm alright to share gas to get out surfing.
    Aloha

So today's your lucky day, if you shred, are motivated, and love waking up to drive hours for shore pound, send me a message. Would love to set up a solid D.C. Carpool crew on top of what we have so far.

    Yeh I live and work in the DC area too. I'm a year round surf who thinks about surfing all the time when not on stage. Happy to carpool if the timing works. Fortunately my surfer daughter just moved to VB so that makes it livable and easier to get to OBX.
