    The stoke we get from surfing, (sponging, snow ridin', whatever your into) is a natural high. It your body's release of adrenaline and endorphins to a stimulus. Its why we feel the way we do and will never give this lifestyle up. Nothing else compares to that natural high.

    That being said, it can be viewed that the "adrenaline junky" mentality is practically a gateway to substance abuse. I smoke weed daily, tripped balls for years in my 20's, bingemeister (past) and beer aficionado to date. I chase the high I get from a sick sesh any way I can when nature wont provide. Gotta have a swerve on, know what I mean.

    ICE aint my thing, but I get how it is for some. Agro-surfer=ICE whereas Soul-surfer=WEED. Not a rule, but a pretty good generalization. Whatever flavor your style so goes your poison. If your poison is stronger than you; you loose. That Demon will eat you alive.

    It doesn't help that surfing has always been a fringe culture / counter culture. Freedom and expression are at its core. it aligns very well with drug culture and operate in the same realm. Sadly the only cure to that is unthinkable..... (another time)


    The plus side to DRUGS in SURFING is that if you are hooked on the surfing life, and live it; well then you know this ain't easy unless you love it. In my case, NY/NJ winters are a ***** and not for the faint of heart. It takes mental and physical toughness combined with dedication to do what we do. It take serious life choices to put yourself in a position for life to make room and time for when mother nature calls with a swell. This lifestyle builds mental toughness IMO. It allows me to work and play harder than most people I know. I prefer to keep my demons as pets, and bring them out to play when called for ;o).

    Drugs in surfing a problem? Not for Me.

    How bout you?

    Live and let live, bud. To each their own.
    No judgments here. That's what family, friends, and your soul are for.

    BTW If any a-hole wants to drop a "JESUS SAVES ALL" just OD now please.

    The only dangerous amount is none.

    Drugs wouldn't have a mystical draw if it wasn't for the outlaw mystique. legalize everything, Darwin will sort it out and then we can move one.

    How about hallucinogenics? A little mind expansion is a good thing for those with a grip.

    I'd be slammin H too if I lived in jersey. I just don't get the whole allure of meth. I've done my fair share of yayo but rarely sought it out. On the other hand, saying I've smoked my fair share of ganja is a grotesque understatement. I don't do drugs anymore. I just like to smoke pot and eat the occasional mushroom.

    It's so disappointing to see surfers living up to the stereotype. Admit it, we're mostly a bunch of retards. We like good times. I've watched plenty of guys do tons of drugs and surf their azzes off for years. That can work for a while while you're young. But after a while, everyone hits the wall. Druggie habits catch up and they eventually become addicts or just lose the stoke to surf like they used to. Some people I know have died. Very very sad and gets you angry. The fortunate ones usually kick everything except for some w33d and/or drinking, and they continue on with surfing. Usually family and/or a real job whips them into shape. AKA: Growing-up. I think I fall into that category, somewhat, but I am a pretty clean living dork for the most part and am proud of it. I've been surfing since 1988 and I have no intention to quit unless my body just can't do it anymore. And in order to keep surfing through the winters, I live a pretty clean life. Don't get me wrong, I like to have my fun and drink a six pack too many every once in a while. BUT, I would always take an early AM mediocre surf over an all night glorious booze binge. I've been operating under that premise since I was a kid and always will.

Hence, the popular American media representations of surf culture.
    everybody thinks peru is all coked out but i can honestly tell you coke fiends were few
    and far between when i was there....the better idea was to carry da stuff which i didn't....their

    I watched this go down first hand! Some kid from my HS (CNHS) was stealing his Dr. Daddy's script pad and selling them to a bunch of my friends... He got caught, my friends couldn't get their Oxy's, so Heroin is the next best thing. That was almost 10 years ago. I see a friend of a friend die on FB every other week. Its absolutely sickening.

    I never got caught up in it, and my advice to all you little terd nuggets on here, DONT DO DRUGS. It will ruin your life in a split second. It only takes that one time!
