    They're still learning on their boogie boards. One day, though!

You didn't mention whether you wear glasses or not....
    I have similar vision problems without my glasses - both distance and close up though. Can't distinguish faces. Gotten so I recognize others by their boards. The vision's gotten worse with age. It was tough getting used to going without glasses at first; now I don't worry about it much. Normally, I greet others nearby when I first paddle out.

    Thanks again.

    What's up brotha. I'm kind of newish to surfing but I'd be down to meet up and shred. I've been at O.C. every weekend since may. I'll be out there Fri-Sun this week. Let me know if you want to meet up. I'd be down to check out another break too. Feel free to send me a message, name is Kevin.

    Dudeskis I think this guy is for real... I don't know how you don't find any friends after 15 yrs of surfing the same spot... But you seem legit.

    My advise- there is one swellinfo.com member that is also surfing and looking for friends in that area- so if you meet a guy with a funny accent named GRUVI - make sure to ask him to get pizza after- don't worry, he will pay...

    I've only been surfing Margate the past 7 years or so, it was sporadic weekend trips to OC and Stone Harbor up until then. There's a Margate surfer named David that I would see sometimes but I don't even know his last name. I got a few PMs and will be around town this weekend. Looking forward to making new friends. Not an easy task these days. Thanks for all the chitchat.

    I'm blind in the water too. Can't wear contacts because of an astigmatism. The contacts are weighted so if you rub your eyes the contacts spin and your cockeyed for the nest 3 minutes until the right themselves. Not fun when a set is coming, lol.

    Went my entire life without them, got some about a month ago and it changed everything, stepped my game up big time, and they don't bother me, salt water burns my eyes after a 4hr session with or without em, but to have them now is a game changer. My advise to anybody considering them is to go for it!
