This post right here is why I said 'mostly'. Every once in a while you get someone like Dix who joined SI a year ago and is just now making her/his FIRST post because they actually have something to contribute to the forum that other people might find useful. This, as opposed to the sort of posts from the people who think they're funny and who come on here every fracking day spewing nonsense like they're on a pathetic reality show of their own making. So welcome Dix. And goodbye di**s.
You're coming to SI looking for surf beta? Good luck with that. Mostly, what you'll find here these days is a bunch of wannabe 'bros' looking for their reflection and posting pictures of their cars and dogs and having inane conversations that would embarass middle schoolers about who said what and who's the coolest SI kook on the least coast. Over and over again. Mostly.
wavehunters rep's a great resort on chaaya island. its a resort first, surf second place, so the wife will love it. they hold 30 spots open per week for surfers, which grants access to Lohi's which is right out front of the resort, and endless boat trips as well. for the area, its not too crazy expensive.
