    you don't just go and apply for a job to bang hot nasty pornstars. all those dudes had to do "gay for pay" first.
    kinda makes entry(no pun intended) into the biz a little less cool....

    I think it mostly has to do with the weather. Just like Florida (and now Caribbean/South/Central America) is a breeding ground for Baseball. It's because they play year round.
    Not many young kids surf year round in freezing weather and that is when they are developing...

Cause in the grand scheme of things, if you list the most "important" or "successful" pro surfers FROM the east coast. The top 5 are all from the SE. Way below the mason dixon. I agree with you that there aren't even 25 guys to reference, but the only world title winners are from the SE and the lopez bros, the hobgoods and slater are all from the south. And on the CT a lot of successful guys were from east and west Florida as well. Guys from up north always hate on the the SE "mushy" waves and Florida in particular, but hey, its plenty consistent down there, by EC standards and for whatever reason, their mushball training ground obviously translates better on an international competitive level than the barrels of the NE. I guess FL and the SE is just a better training ground cause they have a better variety of waves and have more appropriate climate to be in the water more... I guess. And all that inbreeding probably helped too =)

    Hands down were just better, it's a fact. All we do is win the civil war was a tie. We shred jellyfish into Asian soup.

    WTF is 'The Civil War'? Do you mean the War of Northern Aggression?

    Um........actually he moved back to NJ permanently about a year ago and opened Jerzey Devil Surfshop on the AC boardwalk with his brother Joe. If you haven't seen him it isn't because he's not here.......

    Dean was always more of an Ocean City surfer anyway.

    Now you're making me nervous Fitzy. How do you know so much about a$$ rapery as initiation into the porn business anyways? Who you been hanging around son?

  8. Going back to the original North East vs South East argument I think it had a lot to do with sponsorship opportunities being more available down south. There has always been a lot of talent in the Northeast but it takes money and sponsors to make a run at the pro scene.

    Very true CJ, I used to see him at Waverly all the time back in the day.

    Way off on the Lopez thing. Any CT surfer (him from 97-06) is elite and he has wins to back it up.
    He's won Teaupoo, US Open, X Games (3x), ISA World Games.

    Charges as hard as anyone in heavy barrels and has the airs too... But still Fu*k the SOUTH

    And he had the best quote ever when cops were trying to keep guys out of the water during a hurricane swell

    "I fuc*ing surf Pipeline for a living biatch... Get out of my fuc*ing face"
