    Shredder buds. The guys who try to ride their 5'10"X18X2" in knee high waves. The guys that sit on top of the rocks and backpaddle. You know, the guys that wear skinny jeans, flannel shirts, and pecking on their iphones letting the other shredder buds know when and where the surf is going off. SHHHHREDDER buds! OOOOH yeah! LOL.

    As misanthropic as I am, I try to treat everyone as an individual and give them a chance(with the exception of painfully obvious douche-bags, Earth haters, materialists, and other assorted jetsam worthy of disdain)...I find the most pleasant interactions w/ strangers occurr off the beaten path...ie/passers-by on a remote trail, one or two other dudes in a cold winter lineup, rogue beach wanderers in the off season who you end up puffing cheeb with somehow...so in short, I don't mind a what's up and a nod.

    Dammit 757, you know I'm friendly until the fair-weather folks show up and paddle on top of everyone where we have been surfing through all the s*** storms (30 mph NE and 20 degrees), it gets warmer and all of a sudden everyone is a ripper if only the waves were better. Oh shut the F up! I've had more words with people than I've had in a while (probably from the people now in the water...). BTW, you're one of the few folks I see here in Vb that actually surfs, I don't hate and actually goes out when there is something to surf.

    Here's a lovely SwellInfo Bromance for you chaps...

    Taking into consideration what 757 has said on this forum, I am out googly dohappily surfing one fine December day. Low and behold, there is this other chap surfing that I have seen out there a bunch of times. I am paddling back following my latest, sickest ride of all time since I could do no less. I am paddling by, look over at him and in my usual, just gonna blurt something out self that everyone in Vb hates (I'm that guy, sorry I didn't tell you to suck it world). I say, what are you, the 757 surfer? The look of surprise said it all. YES! I found you!

    Of course 757 isn't going to take such accusations lightly. He proceeds to say, who the hell are you on SwellInfo? In a non-d-bag-kind-of-friendly-manner. I think I might have heard a laugh at the end of that. KillaKiel said, I'm KillaKiel. I thought about using another name to totally throw him off, but I am just as honest as can be. Then I demanded on the penalty of drop in and dropping the K bomb what his true identity is. Following a slight pause, he told me the name that will live in infamy at that sandbar...????

    For the sake of privacy, I will not disclose his name, but you can PM and find out. Tell him KillaKiel from the SwellInfo forum sent you.

    I told him how I built that break with my bare hands and he better defend it from the tourons and fishermen that would inevitably show up in the warm weather. Where were you when the "Hawaiians" showed up? Where were you 757. I was badly outnumbered and being a **** to defend out precious break. I told them to go to 1st Street. I spotted them from 10 blocks away. You know when you see that character on the beach. The one who just walked past 5 empty breaks to paddle next to you and get all high and mighty yet be unable to catch anything with a longboard but I'm doing fine with a short? Yeah...them

    I have developed the perfectly pitched noise to make when riding down the line to make these cats (you like that Lee?) move.

    I will not say hi to those people.

    757, do you pick up the trash on the beach when entering/exiting the water to surf? Noo, I am not talking about the people, but I wish I was. Some disgusting creatures we have round these parts. Please don't litter on the beach. I don't like that and neither does the community. Thank you. rant over. 757, get yo ass in the water later. Off at 5. I see good size n chop out there.

At the Juno Pier, I was nice to some Miami kook, and all he did was try to be my best friend out in the lineup as he blew wave after wave after wave. People started wondering if I brought him with me. No good deed goes unpunished. When I get the stink eye I pretend he's my long lost buddy: "Hey Man. GOOD TO SEE YOU OUT HERE, WHEN IS HIGH TIDE, IS IT GETTING BETTER, WOW, LOOK AT THE CROWD". That really pisses them off.

    Gross. I'll take gold chains and hair gel, over playing banjos and dudes touching each other's butts any day.

  6. Consider me guilty as charged. I rarely surf outside of walking distance or a short bicycle ride from my house. My town has a pretty tight nit local crew......the regulars all know one another. Even if we don't all like each other we know who's who. Unfortunately our town is a tourist trap most of the year and even in the off-season we are over run by crowds every time the waves are even remotely rideable. I'll be chatty with people I actually know in the water but if I don't know you I'm not going to have much to say. I'll be polite but don't expect much more. I'm there to get a few rides before going back to reality and if I don't recognize you I'm waiting for you to prove you are competent and not a danger to be around.

    I'm a total nightmare in the water. One time, this lawyer-looking guy dropped in on me and dinged my board good. I paddled over to him and punched him in the face, then I took at my knife and cut his leash and told him to go back to the valley. Then me and my buds caught up to him at the shower and were giving him a good beating until the local surf guru showed up and kicked all our a$$es.

    i also try to be polite but this time of year a scourge,of sorts, shows up in the surf. its the "i've been here along
    and i'm still the sheriff" which of course they haven't been around at all and they should instead assume their
    lowly place at the back of the line which of course they don't and proceed to create more sparks in the line-up
    than there HAVE BEEN ALL WINTER! yeah these types can grate on me….

    I usually give folks a "whassup" if they're next to me, especially when I first paddle out. A lot of time people - especially those under 30 - seem shocked. That's one of the good things about getting older. No need for any more frontin'.

    It's actually really weird and bizarre behavior to be within speaking distance of someone enjoying the same activity as you and not at least say "hello." I mean, think about that. It's bizarre.
