    My fin cut my foot during Gloria, and the hospital I went to sewed sand and sea monkeys in the wound. It got infected and finally gangrene. I had an artery and muscle removed and a skin graft sewed from my big toe knuckle to an inch above my instep. it was quite tender. So I took a wet suit sock, cut the heal and toe off, and cut it off at the ankle. I used it surfing and under my flip flops. It fit well in fins.

    Fin socks are great, but Viper fins have neoprene built in that goes a long way toward saving your feet. Those Hydro's are just big and the blades are too soft.

    Man, spongers suck.

    Do you know how hard it is to stand on a 6'2''.......or a 10 foot log. It is a unique talent only accomplished by a few people in this world. Balance is tough. It took me ten years to be able to stand on a skateboard back in Vietnam. Very tricky the whole balance thing. That's why I trained with Russian kid gymnists back in the 1980's. Man, those little girls have balance, and every drunk ASP Australian should be thankful they don't surf because they gots some balance.

    Surfboards paddle easier and quicker. And they allow earlier entry into the wave so we don't have to stick harsh drops too often. Plus, going feet first is better than going head first. Who'd want to take late drops on a sponge going head first into the reef?

    And since we stand and have back foot/tail leverage, actual moves are less complicated. Pivoting man, it's basic physics.....Those sponges don't have that attribute. Rail to rail transitions are so much more efficient when standing on a 6 foot piece of glassed foam. It's natural....it's friggin cake.

    Surfboards allow the rider to feel more in control and overpower many waves(under 6 foot) Who'd want to feel so vulnerable and small on a six foot wave? Not me. I especially like when it's 3 foot and I get to look down on waves.......where are you......oh yes there you are.........down by my pen-is.

    Surfboards are cool because you get to bend at the knees. I like bending my knees. And I also like to fellate myself which makes the surfboard and the east coast such a perfect match. It's always 2-4 foot here. So when I try and squeeze into a three foot bowl I get to bend way over and try and suck it. I love that !!

    Plus surfboards can cut you with the pointy noses and the skegs. That makes surfers daring and tough. Without fins none of us would be able to hold an edge in a three foot wave. That makes waves more dangerous for us and therefore makes us more macho.....YO SOY EL BURRO MAS MACHO !!

    Man, don't worry aboot weight distribution, wave knowledge and timing. Kelly Slater don't possess none of that........he has balance. He has the best balance in the world. Aussies can balance when they're drunk. They can pass field sobriety tests. All day, every day, son.

    Yep, my ...Lost 6'2'' certainly makes me pretty dang cool. Plus, I got another board they call Neck Beard, and that makes me cool because it's desingned by a guy that is really cool because he shuns contests, and gets millions of dollars to have a few pictures of him busting airs displayed in the mags. Oh, he drinks, and acts "artsy" too. He's creative. Totally cool. He's also, like, Francis Ford Coppola.............

    Dudes, I am so much cooler than you. I've been wasting my time surfing lonley peaks and surfing during the darkest days of winter. NO ONE CAN SEE ME THEN !! You guys need to see me. I'm that cool. I will allow you guys to make appointments with me. You need to see how cool I am. You will pay money to see. It is worth it. I am the man.

    gee hope you never get injured where you couldn't surf and had to find another option... one day, one never knows, that foot or knee injury is just around the corner.
