It's not a spot that you just drive up on, unload the soft tops from the mini-van, stuff the youngsters in the wetsuits and yell "Come On Everybody, Surf's Up!"
    i see what you're getting at but that's not what i meant. I don't think i'd even want to attempt the paddle out. i'm talking about the people that are good at surfing and this movie gives them the fake motivation/ mental "go ahead" to go for it. i guess what im trying to say is that there is gonna be more people out there who don't really know what they are getting into. then again, the locals might not even let that happen so i answered my own question

    very true. i didnt think about it that way. still, i'd hate to see that on surflline like what happened to that guy, i think it was last year? he paddled out to 20ft mavs, got worked, passed out, and had to be brought back to life on the beach. then they had to induce a coma so he wouldnt have significant brain damage. miracle that he is alive and an even bigger miracle he received minimal brain damage.

    As to the breath holding, i can do 50m but im pushing it there. i actually lifeguard at my pool at school and we have a 10lb weight for training when we have to get it from the bottom. when there's nobody there, ive been taking it and running with on the bottom back and forth under water. its actually really helped. time goes by a lot faster when you're doing something under water. ive gotten up to a minute and a half running so far. hoping to keep advancing my times

    Right after "A River Runs Through It" (the movie, not the epic book by N. Maclean) came out every single yuppie within 35 miles of the ocean began descending on quiet fishing 'line-up's" with 2,500 dollars worth of Orvis fishing gear on and 2,000. classic bamboo rods. Never threw a fly in their lives. But enough hooks to the back of the head, ear, nose, etc and they were sellers on E Bay wishing they never had a man-crush on Brad Pitt. People get fired up by movies and media. There isn't a product in the world that hasnt used a wave or a surfer to promote its wares. Yeah.... buying your samsung TV will give you the same feeling as this hawaiian in a cave-sized barrell. Doubt it. As Mr. Marley said - "Who the cap fit, (will continue to) wear it." For the rest, feast on their barely used boards, rods, ropes,skiis, and everything else that looks and sounds cool for your facebook page but really takes a lifetime of commitment. Example: Past week was solid surf, water still warm in northeast (60's) and line-up had 3-5 people in it at all spots. Summer people, Summer not.

    Not to be an alarmist, but I wouldn't do this kind of training with nobody around. If you push yourself a little too far with hypoxic training, you black out and drown.

    we always have 2 guards on and i let them know what i am doing. i always get a weird look when i do it haha. doing things like this really enforces the surfing is a lifestyle idea. all the gurds i work with dont surf and they think i am crazy for surfing in the winter and holding my breath and swimming like i do.

    HAHAHAHA coming from the guy living in New York? Your not even allowed to call yourself a surfer. Did you really use the word Kook? People on this site are such a joke. If you live in the North East then you suck at surfing and the waves you surf suck. Time to wake up buddy, If you want to be a real surfer move out here to California with the big boys. You surfing waist high crap once a month does not count as being a surfer. Being called a kook by you is a compliment because your so out of touch with the surfing world. Go to Surfline today and whats the first story? Good to Epic Southern California? When was the last time your local breaks eve said Good? Never? OK thanks! Oh look time for me to go surf AGAIN

    Cool - from what you wrote earlier, I thought maybe you were completely alone.
