This thread is great because most are being purely honest here. It's got mad laughs too and without anyone being a TC. I'd imagine an SI forum lineup in or out of the water would be awkwardly hilarious.
thanks to njsurfer42 for the immortal clip that thankfully seems to show up every month or two on here - it will never get old. Pretty cool posts from a number of cats here. Deep bro. Social dynamics on the water are certainly a sociological study with so many variables and just as many archetypes.
That clip is so awesome that when I talk to my dad, who does not surf and has never surfed, and he asks if I've gotten any good waves recently, it is inevitably followed up with "Spend some quality time in the green room?"
