you know what really grinds my gears,photographers.if there was ever a lamer excuse to make money,please enlighten me.i have much respect for photographers like zak noyle,chris bukhard,matt lusk,matt clark but these nondescript low budget little rich kids who feel the need to upload every picture they ever took to the world wide internet,then cry when someone reposts their pictures.people take pictures,its no sport,no hobby,no nothing.u see something nice u want to capture it.iv been taking photos for well over 20 years,i had pictures used in magazines(not surf mags),seen my pics on other peoples photo blogs,and that doesnt bother me.if someone likes one of pictures,feel free to keep it for yourself.to upload a pic and put some stupid copyright in the middle,then try to charge people for your photos,its like trying to sell my old cig butts out the ashtray.i remember the days u had to get your film developed.every year to this day i bought the newest best high megapixel camera.i have over 30 cameras getting dusted in the attic that are no longer any use to me.over the years i stopped sharing my photos.i have pics of legends that passed over the years,that their own families dont know about.if i was a little lazy loser,maybe id sell a few flix,but i like to keep them in my own private photo albums and work a real job like real men do.
next id like to speak about pro surfing and the online hype that goes with it.most of my favorite pros been off the tour for nearly a decade.i appreciate the young guns like jjf,but i hate the hype that everyone gives him.he doesnt go around like yea im the best,fuk the rest,he surfs because he loves to surf,and thats why hes so damn good.i watched the new world tour roundtable on surfline,and its pretty funny,pretty much the kelly and mick show.mick asks the king all these silly questions and looks on in amazement.mick,dingo,and parko 3 of the best that ever came out of cooly.also funny about the wt roundtable,its 2 floridians vs 2 coolys.mick will win his 3rd world title at pipeline.that is aalll.....feel free to let the world know what really grinds your gearz
good rant cep, some logic holes, like only the names get to sell shots, but an overall good rant
those little turds should learn how to watermark instead of b!tching
stupidity and people who think there is difference between republican and or democrat bother me. there is no difference, they both want to tax the sheet out of you, one wants to spend the money on BS social programs, the other wants to spend it on empire expansion, 2 sides of the same coin
What's grinding my gears right now... I'm watching the CB Hotwax Surf Cam that is pointed right at my break, it's firing and there are 3 dozen surfers out there having great sessions and I'm stuck 200 miles away until tomorrow night when all the waves will be history. Everybody that surfs on the Island must have called in sick today except for me. It makes me want to sh!t my pants! LOL
Oh my god!!! I just watched THREE guys within 1 minute get barreled!

Yes, I find that very irritating also. So many things grind my gears, that's why I need the water, but right now, what's REALLY grinding my gears is the thought of the campaign against wolves in the northern Rockies and Michigan. Poke around the intranet and you'll see some disturbing sh!t related to this. I'm all about hunting for food, no beef with that...my beef is with these people that want to eliminate wolves from North America, and their logic is based on shotty science, anthropocentrism, and politicizing a native species. If I snap, I'm headed to Idaho or Wyoming.
