He says he gets plenty of waves, and even if it is not that maneuverable, it is still surfing.
    A few guys I see out in my spot are probably mid 70's. They ride 10' logs and don't seem to have many issues.

    Alright Mr 8 posts accusing everyone else of trolling. If I ever see a wave jet in the line up im calling the ass with it to the beach and breaking it. I dont know where you are from but if its in europe that goes twice for you so keep that hunk of crap over there with your bad teeth and fish n chips. Im ok with people with severe injuries and such but the old not so much theres plenty of geezers who paddle and rip if u downed too many twinkies, smoked one two many cigs and think its a free pass to put a motor on your board you are a tool.

    Sorry emass, I don't look at the date and as i've admitted in the past I might as well be 10. Most of the time I read these threads backwards. Also I am not the one who dredged this up and put it on the top of the list. Sometimes I use SI as a healthy cheaper alternative to anger management. Occasionally I do test my mma skills on the mannequins, even though I get weird looks its a great way to blow off steam.

    Aint surfin.

    I guess my issue is one of terminology.

    I do wonder though about catchin waves too small for a log. Geez. Just go swimmin.
    A lot of people write of kitesurfing, but have you ever tried it?

    U don't even feel the kite when your on a wave.

    Hahaha you answered correctly bro. Sounds like you're soon ready for a title fight vs. Chuck and his dummies.
