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.
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 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.

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.
