    A couple years ago I developed a complete intolerance to caffeine. A single cup of coffee or can of coke will ruin my whole day, making me feel like sh*t in a squirrely hang-over type fashion. The weird part is I drank one or two cups a day for years with no issues. It took me more than a month to figure out why I felt like turd snacks every day. I cut out the coffee and boom, there was the problem. I still can enjoy a cup of decaf though.
    Developed a similar issue, i drink decaf now, had a huge cup of it this morning actually. If i drink caffein now it makes me sweat pretty badly, it's no good. I use to drink energy drinks and diet coke among other things all the time for years.

    +1...I was all over the place...totally jittery. Can't believe that this would be something people would be interested ingesting. The side effects are just not worth it...

    I try to just keep myself hydrated and eat a banana or an apple not long before paddling out. That said, when I'm on surf trips and pushing myself for more/longer sessions, I've been known to throw back a 5-hour energy. I feel like those things must just be terrible for the body, but they do seem to give me a boost, though maybe it's just placebo.
