    I'll make some mango chutney to go on the Wahoo, Grouper and Trigger Clemson's gonna be picking up for everyone. Hell, I'll bring some fresh NC oyster stuffing too. Y'all can have the cannedberry sauce.

    Could have ended in a tragic way....You both were very lucky. When in big surf I always say...Know your limitations......You knew your friends and took him out anyway. No one needs a friend like that.

    First off, if the turkey hasn’t already been injected with a brine solution, I say brine it. We’re surfers after all, one of us can just tie it to our leash for a couple of hours. I will bring brownies. Magic brownies.

    Secondly:

Look guy, I gave an honest recap of an event that was a lot to take on many levels and opened myself for potential criticism in the effort to turn to vets I considered to respectfully pass on knowledge as I was sure everyone had been in something similar at some point. Instead, I got a firing squad of condescending a$$hole responses (in between some very helpful) that were very inflammatory, several of which fired away before even reading the facts of the situation and then putting words in my mouth.

    The first punches of disrespect were thrown by many on here, not me. If you look at my second post, it followed a battery of condescension yet I still had the patience to stay on topic and not make anything personal. You'd have to go back and read to see where the disrespect began and by whom, but it's obvious that reading previous posts before posting yourself is not a pastime some share on here.

    Until this debacle, I had been maintaining a positive existence on this forum and happy to be here which could be seen by my posts. I still like this forum but it's clear who to keep distance from.
    Erock and NJsurfer42 (FuchinKooks, hate u guys) and a handful of others are probably some of the more respected posters on this forum. That’s because they know what they're talking about and have been surfing since they were children. If I recall, Erock is 34 and NJSurfer42 is in his early 30's as well. That’s a lot of waves under their belts. By surfing’s standards, they’re actually pretty nice guys too. I sincerely doubt that either of them have ever threatened to sodomize anyone or burn down people’s homes with family still inside over a wave. I could be wrong though. You talk about “The first punches of disrespect”. Surfing is not a group hug man (thanks Pump or Mofo or whoever said it) and you are the lowliest of the low. You are a 33 year old grom (actually only little kids can be groms, it doesn’t refer to ability or how long you’ve been surfing, it refers to age and size, see you have a lot to learn) on a funboard. Even Kelly Slater still gets the air let out of his tires in this “sport”. Garrett McNamara, the guy who holds the record for the biggest wave in the world, has been choked out and left unconscious in a parking lot because he snaked the wrong guy. You don’t get respect at this point, sorry man. Come back in a few years and it might be different. And the truth is, you got out what you put in. The fact that you received some responses telling you that you come off as an arrogant, pompous, self-righteous narcissist who has no idea what a 9' wave actually looks like and that you displayed a lack of respect for the ocean should be a cause for some serious personal introspection. If you want to keep surfing that is. You haven’t been at it for very long, most people quit after a few years or after their first serious injury. Instead you took it as an affront to your ego and your abilities and started arguing about how big the waves were.

    Here’s some free advice, take it for what it’s worth: you should sincerely apologize to them both and then thank them for sharing their knowledge with you.
    Then stop posting for at least a month and let this blow over.

    Also, unless the size of the wave really matters, the size of the wave really doesn’t matter.

    Style is everything.

    But, it ain’t no skin off my back man. I gots to go eat some mushburgers before dinner. We don’t get the big waves out here that you guys do.

    You knew and you did nothing? You left the beach open and now the Kitner boy is dead

Father, thank you for seeing through my hollow lies that I posed as statements on here repeatedly like "I take full responsibility" as they were clearly the words of Satan placed in my mouth.
    wow. you come on here asking if you made a mistake & then get defensive when people call you out. you really seem to lack any sense of self-reflection. you screwed up. don't get pissy when people tell you that.
    you knowingly took a beginner to a part of the beach where the likelihood of waves refracting off a hard structure could amplify wave heights to well above the limits of a beginner.

    Well Good Gravy! A Lowcountry Thanksgiving, I do declare, that is a good idea PeaJay! Thanksgiving around these parts is a great time, the mosquitos haven't left yet and they're almost as big as an adolescent turkey and the noseeums are out again just about as hungry as pilgrim sitting across a steaming bowl of maize leering at Pocohontas.

    DawnPatrol, there'll be no using that language at my table but you could grab a beer and help zaGaff with the turkey, I done brined it for the 24 hours and I think the pecan smoke is starting to get to him, his eyes have been red for the past couple hours since they started talking about indians and peace pipes and what not.

    Mama ain't used the can stuff for a couple years but she bought some up at the piggly wiggly cuz I done told her how much you boys liked it. She's turned into a mighty fine cook and so don't you worry your little head about no marshmallows and sweet taters neither Dawn. Ya know, for a southerner, you sure do talk like you're from Massachusetts (no offense intended to you newengland, you're what we like to call a good yankee). My Diddy always said Florida was the most southern, northern state. And you know we don't take kindly to no northern aggression. But never mind that, all's welcome at my table, whether you drink your tea sweet or unsweet.

    Mr. Rock, unfortunately my largest sea-going vessel is my 9'0" log so i won't be able to haul in any fresh fish. I'm good for a redfish or two, maybe a flounder here or there. I'll make sure to throw the crab trap and maybe net a cooler of shrimp to add a crustacean flair to the affair. Maybe my South Carolina brethren, Zach619, brewengineer or Roy's boy, Steve83, can fill our table with fish! I do look forward to your oyster stuffing though! I'll make sure to bring some wild hog and swamp deer to the table. I can't claim we've got big deer down here but they do get tasty, our pigs are big! Boy, i tell you what!

    We'll have to fire up all my grills and keep that oven runnin' for a coupla days. We'll have more pies than windowsills. The beer will flow and the shine will make you glow.

    Emass, you can come too.

    How about posting your oyster stuffing recipe?

    What's this thread about anyway?

    Awful nice of you to include me. I'll bring a keg of Yuengling that I'll pick up on the way down. You can't get that goodness up here, at least not til you hit White Plains on the NY border.

    At this point, this thread, and the OP behind it, is comic gold. This guy has to have been trolling us the whole time. No one can naturally be such a tool. he talks about his pure love of surfing, and then describes his training regimen like a physicist. Its too perfectly terrible to be real.

    So congrats Spicoli, you got all of us. You're probably sitting in Kansas right now laughing your ass off.

    I was about to ask the same two questions.
    Not sure how this discussion turned to Thanksgiving dinner, but it's a nice change. Oyster dressing, grouper, crab, and all that other good stuff.
