    30+ min drive on an island

    Maybe its just me, but I find it kind of absurd that I have to drive 30-35 minutes to go to the beach I surf at when I live on an island. And with the gas about 4.60 a gallon out here, its ridiculous

    Traffic? Why...

    How many times a week would you say you get decent surf there? I have a brother that goes there.

    That's just during the tourist season right?

    I've heard the vineyeard doesn't get anything. Or maybe it was that only a few beaches actually break? Something like that. Can't remember

    Dude, u live by martha's vineyard, quit your b!tch!ng. 1. life cant be that bad there (I can only imagine the house you live in)... & 2. you're crying about a 1/2hr drive, be grateful you were blessed w/ the life you've been handed (yes, handed.) No reason for the over-priveledged to be crying about miniscule B.S. Go get a stand-up paddle board if u want more time standing on your board or give it all up so the ppl that dont mind the drive ( however long it may be - 1/2 hr isnt $h!t, hoss), can enjoi the stoke w/o you being in the way, Nancy...

    I was out about 7-10 days ago and there was awesome overhead surf. Only the south and SE sides if the island get waves. I go to the SE side because the waves break better there, the south facing beaches have awful shorebreak

    Yeah man I'm not really complaining as much as It just seems kinda weird I have to drive so far when your on an island, its really a lot bigger than people think it it but its really beautiful out here

    is this what the kids these days call a "humblebrag?" along the lines of "i really need to get a bigger bed because my girlfriend's boobs are just so big they take up all the room but i guess that's what you get when you date a swedish lingerie model..." or "those darn police are always pulling me over just because i drive a cherry red porsche..."
