    Oteezy, Do yourself a favor and stop embarrassing yourself. Some of those guys paddle into 20 ft North Shore faces on wooden finless boards.

    Dude, there's a big difference between what's in those pics and 12'-15' faces at Blacks, or the Slooze or Sunset Cliffs. I say this only from personal experience. Crazy wind and nasty rips make a world of difference, especially when paddling out. Blacks and the Slooze have channels which makes the paddle out pretty different then paddling into pounding shore break. Sunset Cliffs breaks so far from the shore that once you actually get past the waves breaking on the cliffs themselves, the paddle to the outer reef isn't that bad except it's almost a half mile. I got respect for whatever the hell it is those ole boys are doin in those shots. I sure wouldn't paddle out into that nastiness. I have a wife and kids. Everyone out here, looking at the pics coming from the EC the last couple of days are all saying the same thing, "DAMN!"

    Now the shots Mike Doyle (Coil Surfboards) is posting on the Swaylock's forum of Florida right now, that's where it's at and where I wish I was (my break is 1-3' today). Big, beautiful, perfectly breaking OH+ waves in the sun and warmth. There's a world of difference between that and what's showing in those photos. Call it foolhardy, willfully ignorant of their mortality and death defying, but easy? I don't think so. I have a feeling that the pictures don't do it justice either.

    I think you're wrong man, sorry. It's always easy to criticize though, so who knows maybe I am. I know pictures never impart us with the speed, wave thickness, harshness of the conditions and sheer ferocity of the ocean. I also know that everyone thinks they are a better surfer than they actually are (unless you really are the sh!1, in which case, Respect). Anybody who's out in this is going to be telling tales about the Winter of '12 and Hurricane Sandy for years to come, that's for sure.

    Colin, you and your crew are ballsy.

    Hahaha! You're from Cali?!? hahahaha! I bet you wear tight jeans and listen to dub step.. We never "tow" it's called "step offs and for your information the 11x world champ Kelly Slater was doing step offs in florida today on the same size waves we were surfing. So there ya have it. Have fun doing 3 to the beach at grandview. Buy a ticket to Hawaii this winter and we can talk about paddling, maybe I'll introduce you to some of my friends with the black trunks. Aloha buddy. Been paddling on the North Shore for 12 consecutive seasons.

    Wait, so you've never actually paddled out in a hurricane? It's a world of difference.

    Now nobody appreciates that kind of talk. Let your surfing speak for you, it says volumes and is damn impressive. Plenty of the rest of us will be there too. It's the season. No reason to beat on your chest. Take the high line man, don't let it get to ya.

    LOL so much douchebaggery in this post.

    1.) I'm from the EC, I became a real surfer paddling into hurricane waves.
    2.) Dropping "11x world champion SLATERZ!!11" as if that makes you more legit. Oh man I laughed hard at that. Of course a ski was the only way to get into waves today, I'm not retarded. And I highly doubt Slater was doing step offs in head-high tops waves, which you were in the video I posted. And even if he was, he's Kelly, he gets a pass.
    3.) Tight jeans and dubstep, 3 to the beach at grandview. I don't even need to explain how ignorant you just made yourself look.
    4.) Again trying to make yourself sound badass by claiming to know guys from Da Hui. What an arrogant Haole. I wonder how hard the Da Hui guys lol when they see you doing "step offs" in head high surf (knee high Hawaiian)
