Sand Man, I will always defend the South (sorry, I love it, and lets have another Civil War thread too).
On a serious not though, VB has terrible ettiquette. I've turned the pack on me by being rational and voicing with disgust what I see. Apparently the "true locals" like it that way. I effin hate that sh**. I'm off in 7 minutes thankfully
viva la dixie!!! these hordes of jersey shore punks are trying to fist pump to Armageddon.
North Vs. South Jersey is a big debate
1st Belmar is not South Jersey
North Jersey: Better Surfers, better breaks, and more etiquette
South Jersey: Worse Surfers, worse breaks, and alot of guys that think they are way better than they actually are. These same dudes try to paddle for every wave, ride firewires, and kook out the line up
I wonder if there's a any parallel between the surfing and driving etiquette, or the lack of, in an area. When we moved to Hampton Roads/VB from Calif, the generally rude ("me first" at all costs) and just plain stupid driving behavior and attitude here was very apparent. The use of cellphones and texting - not yet a problem while surfing - has made matters worse.
