    C'mon Erock, 40 minutes is nothing if it's really good out. How much of a difference are we talking between the two spots? If it's marginal, then i'd take the short 15 ride, but if it's the difference of thigh high vs. chest high, i'll take the 40 minutes all day long.

    It's really come down to bad timing lately, like the swell seems to be timed around when I'm too busy. I'd rather have a 3 hour session in OK surf than spend half of that time driving then leaving the session pissed I had to get out earlier than I would want.

    ....but I'm somewhat spoiled for sure.

    And fungus, if you have any idea about it--ie if you live here--you would know that these are the same kooks who belong in lakes and pools yet paddle out during hurricane swells, congesting the impact zone and generally getting in the way. It's dangerous and much, much more than "just noise."[/QUOTE

    Ok so 5 to 10 days a year they are dangerous. And the other 355 days you care why?

    But you seem plenty motivated to post 1821 times. Less computer, more surfing and maybe then you will calm down on the kook talk. Just saying.

    You truely are a fungus aren't you? If you were in WB each year when the freshmen show up you would understand Erock and all of our frustation with them. As Erock mentioned the ocean weeds em out by October though (best is that frst cane swell when they all get worked trying to paddle out after surfing 3 times) but why you gotta jump all up in his thread talking smack!?!

    Just telling it like it is. I find it funny that a guy that post almost 2000 times is "talking smack" about those actually out in the water. Good or not at least they are doing something as opposed to typing. Plus did the waves even matter today in mighty SE NC? Doubt it.
