    .... Or just "who gives a ****" and make your turn and run into whoever happens to be in the way / hope they get scared and bail when they see you about to run into them?
    I surfed Beacons (walking distance from place I was staying), before heading south. There was this older fella. One of those parking lot dudes. Authority on everything. Likely had been at that break for eons. After just one session everyone in the ocean knew he had been a schoolteacher for 32 years, how awesome his custom boards were & pretty much any other friggin thing he was bellowing about. Thundering one's personal gibberish isn't what I'm looking to hear when I'm surfing. And if the bellowing schoolteacher is reading this...when you speak you sound like farts coming out of a vagina.

    As for the directional signal on a party wave:
    Depends how tore up your stick is.

    I want to apologize to all the sitting sallys and chatting cathys. Next time I see you out there in the line up I'll make sure I come over and say hello and ask how's the family and then we can all hold hands and sing koombaya like a bunch of dirty hippies.

    You need a good Fitzpedo.

  4. your all lame,

    i find that when its actually GOOD, not good enough or "fun" or "i got a couple fun ones" or "did you guys see that barrel i had like a half hour ago?" here on the east coast non of you are anywhere to be seen. so i have no problems with people ripping each other off over surfing, because the money only has to do with **** waves and **** surfing. i dont think proper good waves or proper good surfing will ever have a price tag on it. but yall can keep throwing money around and making fun of each other while you all go surf like ****, on **** waves. But at least youll have that 30$ quiksilver T-shirt, Neff shades, and a super cool beanie so when you go to the mall all the girls can THINK you surf properly

    I'd ask you to rephrase or elaborate your post, but you're far better served trading your snakpak to rcarter for a couple of his happy pills. Good day to you brah.

  6. my point, here on the east coast there are too many people with the most expensive quad and the brand new wetsuit, but its okay because they all surf together in ****ty waves. and just the right amount of people pulling into heavy snowy proper barrels in 3 year old wetsuits with duct tapped boards.
    so the advertisment on the bowflex surfboard thing that started this thread might say "buy this product and you will have a surfer six pack and a great ass" but it should really say "nomatter how fit you are you will never understand how to take the proper line on a wave"

    let these people buy there fancy workout machines and there expensive boards and wetsuits, its fine. its actually a good thing because 99% of those people will never be in the lineup when the waves are actually good (3-4times a year).

    so throw some wax on there windows, pop a tire, break a board in the parking lot. dont feel bad about it they asked for it, 2hit they payed for it

    So, because I am not a broke loser, I don't deserve to surf? I am trying to understand your point. Personally, I have 2 brand new boards, a 1 year old wetsuit, and haul my stick down to the beach on a $36k car. I only manage to surf a couple days a week, because while the dude with the duct taped board hangs out and surfs every morning, I am already at work. I work 40-45 hours a week to pay for my new board, nice car, and tear-free wetsuit. There are many people on this forum that have more money than I do. There are also people with much less money. I don't judge them, as long as they are good people. If they love surfing, they have a right to be out there. I also don't see why some hate on the kooks and posers so much. These people keep your local board shop in business. It is pretty hard to stay afloat selling a few boards every week. Mad Atom has the right idea. Save the aggression for other the other BS in life.

    See, I think of surfing (generally) being a rich dude sport. Kinda like golf or something? Similar with golf, sure, there may be some poor dudes who got into it but surfing has a lot of expensive ingredients, i.e.

    * Living / staying / travelling near the ocean

    * Boards and wetsuits

    * A vehicle that can carry boards around

    * Being able to work your schedule around the waves

    I was lucky if I got to go to the beach even once a year as a kid, trying to convince my parents to rent/buy me a board or pay for surf lessons would have been a joke. Whereas, around Rhode Island (especially Newport / Little Compton / Watch Hill ) a lot of the young surfers have had their parents pay for a week of surf camp in Hawaii (or similar) and thousands on boards/gear...

    Obviously there are exceptions; a lot of people who actually live in Hawaii are poor as **** but still surf ('cuz I mean, you live in Hawaii, what else are you gonna do)...

    I saw an article somewhere about the surf lineup being the new "golf course" for young Silicon Valley CEOs -- a place to hold high-powered meetings / network with other CEOs..

    I surfed all though college on a used 6'4 and a decent 4/3. Had a 10 year old civic with roof racks. Best times ever. Now I have some $ and nice gear but so much less time to go surfing. Could actually be logging some log time right now... If I could do it all again I'd be living out of a van right now. Maybe it's not too late...
