    To some kooks.

    I was reading a post fromsome kooks about a picture from bethany beach when I had to throw in my 2 sense. Here it is. I think the little kids just needed some schooling. //////////// Those who bodyboard, have fun. Those who surf, still have fun. Those who longboard, shortboard, ride fishes, bodyboards (dk-standup-prone), paddleboard, bodysurf, kayak, outriggers and whatever else there is to do are to be considered WATERMEN. I have seen videos of Slater and Dorian bodyboarding, bodysurfing, surfing longboard-sponges, closet doors? The bottom lines is if you are still fighting over being a bodyboarder or a surfer, you are just ten steps further behind from ever being considered water men. Check out Laird, Takayama, Dorian. These guys know how to standup-paddle, they know the essential flex of a sponge, they know how to bodysurf pipeline better then any of us on a any type of board. Word is, get a quiver and stop following the trend of a "PRO" magazine. Magazines DO NOT SHOW YOU watermen. They show you ONLY what THE INDUSTRY WANTS TO SELL YOU...and that is radical boards and very expensive clothes. ROACH-surfs! Maligs-surfs! Ever heard of a guy named C-buck...Freaking incredible watermen. Lil Jordy has pulled a sponge into the biggest Southside tubes I have ever seen and surfed point breaks on a hollow wooden fish that he shaped wih his bare hands. My quote for the year is, "Every toy in your quiver is a chance to get another wave. A chance to get another wave will require you to look further then the sticker on the back of your car!" Happy waves to all!

    Another State of mind!

    Check out the Video Trailer on www.surfline.com to "Another State of Mind" It speaks my peace. Great video, I recomend it for any watermen.

    Thumbs up

    Amen to that.

    To bag on one style of riding or another just shows one's personal insecurities and ignorance IMHO. Whatever puts a smile on your face.

    Love for Mother Nature is love for Mother Nature. Everyone loves feeling humbled by the power of the ocean.

    Thumbs up right on!

    We need ore people like you out in the water. Since localism and bodyboard vs surfer debates have plagued our beaches, sometimes it isn't just that much fun.

    No matter how crowded, one can always share the stoke...regardless of what people ride...it's just the love of the ocean...and there is always another wave. Sharing is just good karma

    i agree that the battle between bodyboarders and surfers is stupid, however i believe in localism to a certain level. bennys need to learn that this is our beach not theres. if they "heart" NY so much why dont they stay there?! go to bennygohome.com you will understand what i am talking about. KEEP IT LOCAL!

    Yeah, I had another form of a**hole-ness (localism, whatever you chose for this situation) today at inlet getting wetsuit on by my car when some older gentleman drove up next to me stared at me. After an akward moment he simply said "yuppie surfer". I was kinda taken back and speechless since I have never been called anything like that. He then said "a rich surfer" and shook his head then drove off. I have surfed here my whole life in Ocean City and recently saved up enough money to get a new car and I get hassled and labeled a "yuppie". I can't think of a more ignorant situation for him to drive from boardwalk/pier area of lot to other end to call me a yuppie surfer. What car a person drives or the equipment he has should not label him a yuppie, but that is my opinion. I have the most respect for everyother person in the water and I will be as far out of the way as I can just to enjoy the waves and the water.
