As I approach the big four zero I've finally learned that the quest for huge adrenaline dumps dramatically increases the potential for injury and with that, consequence. Coming up on my three year anniversary for a complete and displaced break of my tibia/fibula and still not getting around like I used to, probably never will, I find myself a little gun shy when it comes to thrill seeking. It's a hard pill to swallow, but the more time I put between the present and that horrible leg breaking day without being back to 100% the more I realize I NEVER want to break anything again. 23 head high waves for me please.

I would take 23 head high waves at this stage of my life, I like big waves but I know my limits, now if I was guaranteed to come out unscathed from riding the 23 footer I'd take that experience in a heart beat, but having that guarantee would probably take a lot of the thrill out of it I believe, although I'm sure no matter what it's incredible.

how many said 23-foot waves do I have to wear on the head before getting into one? If the answer is more than zero, I think I'll take 23 head high waves.

I'll be happy w/ a few 15 footers whenever I have the bank to go on a proper surf trip.

I would be on the beach watching the brave wish they weren't so brave if it was 23 feet. I sank my teeth into a few legit 12-14 foot waves in perfect conditions which was one of the best days of my life but was also the limit. After flubbing a drop I took a few of those big boys on the head and if it were 23 feet I'd have ditched my board and swam for my life.
Also, hard to phrase in Spicoli's quick concise summary, is the fact that Swellinfo members tend to hate on a dude, yet wherever the character goes they are sure to follow. They always follow their supposed disliked person wherever they roam and post. It's a quite fascinating example of human behavior.
I guess Iced Cubed said it best when he said, " I'm the cracker ya love to hate."
Speaking of Canadians.......Hey didn't anybody air the STRONGER THAN THE STORM ads in Ontario or Quebec?? I've only seen two Canadian plates this summer. I'm devestated.
