is Gruvi back?
Have you ever surfed Belmar, NJ... Lots of ppl to be friends with there...
Not sure what you're complaining about. The ocean and just you on a good day? Sounds like a perfect scenario. But in regard to your request. How is it that you don't know anyone in the lineup in Margate? If you're looking to meet people and not having luck there, head over to the Ventnor Pier. Lot's of folks and most of them friendly. Or, hit up States/NJ Ave in AC. The AC Surf School is there and there's a bunch of friendly instructors and locals always hanging around. But again, I question why you haven't met anyone as of yet if you're out a lot and have been surfing for 17 years.
I salute you Ryan7. That is too much dude! So funny. Thanks.
You gotta reach out. Some people are agro-leave me alone. Some will wave. Some will chat and go have a burger afterwards. I agree with everyone else that you probably need to hit up somebody close to your skill level.
or teach one of your non-surfing friends how.
This is actually good advise. I have some less welcoming friends that say they might have to stop surfing with me because I am a magnet for every person out there. It doesn't matter how off putting I think I'm being in the water everyone thinks I'm their best bud, lol. It would be nice to be just me and the empty ocean sometimes.You should keep it that way, spark plug.
I've learned throughout my 3 or so years that I have been surfing is that you need to talk to people in the lineup. I started talking to this kid at a local ESA contest last weekend and you never woulda known that he has such cool stories to share and would like to know some about you too.
