    Man I'm glad someone else finally got that. Irony fellers.

    So, you have some kind of problem? Speak it out, dude. What, you a sponge or something? If you are upset at my post on this thread......go back and read it again. Read it carefully.

    Dude, my mind is so open it ain't even funny.
    I'm a full blown quiver, since you're asking, kinda like "Sprout" (there is a time place and use for every kind of board from my bare belly through my PVC raft, sponge, fishes, fun boards, to my 12ft. and even my SUP), and forgive me for not getting your "sarcasm/irony." I guess I'm just a little winded by your overblown obsessive posting, which is never all that funny, sarcastically appropriate, or properly gravitated toward convincing irony, especially when you dog on those who are asking for real help in situations that find them doing their best to enjoy the ocean.

    I went back and read your post, 'carefully,' and I still couldn't get through all of its condescension and passive aggressive abuse. Past experience is leading to post less and read less on this forum, but for what its worth, I find your's most worthy of passing over as they have drifted past my interest due to their obvious craving for attention and narcissistic under/overtones. And most importantly, despite what you think, your mind is no so open, and that's never funny.

    My obssesive posting.....what aboot the others, Mr. Thumbs? What aboot the others? Call them out, too. I post much less than quite a few people on here. And I have no life. All my friends are dead, locked-up or I'm not aloud to hang around them. THIS IS ALL I HAVE, THUMBS............THIS IS ALL I HAVE........(intense sobbing)

    I have had numerous people compliment me on my funny-ness, like, for example, World B. Freilinghaus thinks I'm grand(sorry if I muffed your name). So that makes you an uptight dork who in reality is the one seeking attention. Really, consindering my personality, do you think I really need to seek attention....on the internet no less? And it's obvious you don't know what is sarcastically appropriate because you were too dim to recognize sarcasm.

    Ahh man you "surf" and sponge? So, like, do you ride a sponge when you're on your period and feel hormonal or something? Delicate like flower?

    Oh no, please keep reading these threads and post more. We'd be lost without you. I'm sure you like Spicoli or Yankee or somebody, right? Just read there stuff, but please don't go. Ahh another jealous dude because he can't become one of the SWELLINFO.COM crew like SUP, Mr. Brewengineer, OIPAUL, Mfitz, and Seldom Seen.

    If you don't like my stuff, then why do you "attempt" to read it? Can't help yourself can you big guy. Hey, aren't you the anti-Hawaiian tough guy? The one who "witnessed or heard" aboot rapes and throwing people off of cliffs in Hawaii.......yeah right, dude. Riggghhhtttt.....

    Oh, I like how you forced the big words, dude. That must have taken awhile for you to write, huh.......Don't think I didn't notice that. I notice everything because I watch Law & Order....I'm trained like a NYC detective.

    And who do I dog who axs for help? I actually give advice. But yeah, I'm not concerned with helping people learn how to surf over the internet. That's not what it's all aboot. And I don't care aboot hobbyists trying to enjoy the ocean. Surfing's not aboot enjoyment, it's aboot being territorial, performance and being cool.

    Mr. Bear,

    I actually thought your official "nom de guerre" was The GRAND Panjandrum. I see you are keepin' them on their toes as usual. Just doing God's work.

    Of all things, we met some cool Jersey spongers (they exist), on OBX last week. Shared a sweet session at the lighthouse. Good times.

    Forgot how much trash you guys talk. Had me in stitches!

    Slide on.

    Please don't take this the wrong way but can someone help me understand why some individuals choose bodyboarding over surfing?

    It seems like a lot of extra work just to lay down to surf. Then I see most bodyboarders get up on their knees anyway. I could see back in the ol 80's days the advantage but nowadays you can actually do more on a surfboard then a bodyboard.

    I can see the perks of like body surfing when its flat or something but I just have a hard time understanding why people like to body board. I get paddle boarding, longboarding, kayaking etc....

    Down here in Central Florida body boarding is pretty rare. I don't know, is because of the rocks or something up north where its too shallow to surf or something? Places like the Wedge I can see the advantage of body boarding or body surfing,

    Another sport really taking off again down here is skim boarding. I've heard its also pretty big up North. Here in Smyrna conditions aren't great for skim boarding but south of us where the beach is steeper a lot of people do it.

    That'd be like trying to explain why you prefer blondes to redheads. I can give you my personal reasons, but it's a matter of what you're drawn to. As to why there's not much of a BB scene in central Fla, idk, maybe lots of mushy waves(not knocking Fla, just guessing)...to experience the sponge to it's fullest potential you want steep, hollow, pitching waves.

    Actually when I was a kid, think about 8 years old we all went body boarding with my older cousin and he had a surfboard. I loved body boarding that day and soon after got my first surfboard.

    I love anything to do with the water, short board is my thing and maybe when I'm old I'll progress to a longboard.

    It's funny how we all get introduced to whatever and evolve from there...I started on a sponge, got so frustrated with dropknee that I started surfing in my teens as an avoidance strategy, then back to full time sponge. I got a mini-mal recently that a buddy let me borrow, and even Monday when it was small I was looking at my gear, thinking about doing some longboarding, but just love the sponge man.

    i grew up not too far from Walls, bodyboarding spot in waikiki. that's where i first felt the power of the ocean. i've been addicted to it eversince. eventually going out with my buds to Sandys, a shorebreak on the southeast side of the islands. i think that would explain why i prefer steep, hollow waves over open faces. i tried surfing, but i just can't get the same rush. that's my personal take on it anyways...
