Boy, it sure is interesting to be able to single out the glass-half-full from the glass-half-empty people... anyone actually feel like staying on message and commenting on the publication itself? It might be interesting to hear about what people's opinions are of it. It seems like so many threads come back to this topic somehow (quality of our surf) which ends up being extremely boring and predictable. Some think it's great, some think it sucks. If you're one who thinks it sucks, deal with it or move, because it isn't drastically going to change. It you're one who thinks it's great, well, take a trip to CA, Central America (Pacific side) Australia or Indo. Understand what it is 'Carolinians' have got and enjoy it. Be thankful. Surfing is so much about attitudes and there are plenty of those that suck no matter where in the world you go and how good the waves are. If you've got a good attitude, chances are you're gonna have a good time whether it's knee-high or overhead. Back to the publication. I like the fact that these people are sticking their necks out, taking a risk and doing something that they truly enjoy creating a magazine about something they love. Sure beats flipping burgers! How many or you glass-half-full people are doing something you REALLY love? How many of you are flipping burgers?
