People don't get mad in public when others have open conversations about breaks. If someone is on the internet seeking out surf information, why not tell them the spot. If you are really afraid that is the reason your not getting waves your doing it wrong. Directed at none of you fine folks just putting some thoughts into writing. Remember we don't hold the answers, you are not the guardian of surfing, it came long before you and will go on long after, you are accomplishing nothing. If people actually talked about specific spots this site would be worthwhile.
    awwwh, can't find any waves on your own? now you want the internets to help you? sorry, 'your doing it wrong'

    Funny. Maybe on some days, I actually use a soft top for that.

    For the record manisses my "home break" in normandy is not really practical for surfing right now. I regularly surf anywhere that looks good from AC to anywhere in monmouth county. I wont bore you with details unless you really have a legitimate question.

    Why do you feel the need that we need to improve the discussions? If you don't like a thread, you don't have to read it or respond to it. What have you done to improve the quality of this forum? I can assure you that "Why this forum is worthless..." is not going to help anything.

    hahahahaha dirty ole first street... I agree Bub. At least for the EC, there might not be any secret spots left. just ones people might have a hard time getting to if they weren't determined. I can't speak for California, but when I surfed in WA state this summer, the locals were more than welcome to tell me where and when to go. It all depends on the population of the surfers when it comes down to it. who cares if you're a local or not. if you can surf (to a certain skill level appropriate to the wave, surroundings, etc...) who cares?

    What would Wardo do? he would first be drunk as ****, screw your chick while you were surfing, go for a sesh and in the process thrash and burn everyone in the lineup at least once, paddle back in, screw your chick again while you were still out and then continue drinking and if anyone wanted to fight him, he would take them on. After he would then proceed to party on. God damn he is a crazy mother but like they said in War(d) stories, you either love him or hate him

Its no "secrets" really, its just guys getting pissed when their backyards get full because of forum talk....
    Exactly^^^

    The forum takes on almost a culture of its own, based on the past history of who talks about what.
    Its almost impossible for even the owner to mold it however, he/she wants.
    So, I say, bring on some good conversation and be the catalyst for some interesting topics. I'm not sure that happened in this thread.
