Thread: Bertha

    Bro. Definitely watched a strong verbal altercation ensue between a SUPkook and two LB kooks for several consecutive sets this morning in Rhodey. Started with the SUPer running a crisscross pattern across one of the LB kooks then they both did it again a few minutes later. War of the worlds. The schitty part was that on the first, the LB dude got caught off guard and lost balance and is headed right towards me in the flats. Like bro, please have common sense and don't kick that 80 liters of glasses foam at my head and just grab and pull it to side. Alas, boat is coming at my head so I just duck under. The move that anyone can do in the flats but so many just stare at their impending demise approach them.

    So the SUPkook ends up getting berated by both LB dudes and a SB dude. Me and another cat who were surfing together all morning are in amused awe at the kookapalooza and how aggro these bros are. So I bust out the script from EBAD starting with "Mahalo you fuvking surfers!" all the way to telling them I'll cut their leash. Gave the lineup a bit of comic relief for those who knew the reference. Then the next set comes in and the SB dude was sick of getting dropped in on so he says eff the world (literally out loud) then drops in on me. I'm to my feet getting in the highline backside and next thing I know a rail is by my bavk shin. I just headed in at that point, had got enough dope rides and things were nearly getting dangerous.

    On a lighter, stiffer note...there was an early 20s wahine on a SB right about then that was rocking the hottest t-back ever and her back piece was focking unreal. She had moderate shreddery at best but who the hell cares when she looks that tasty laying prone. I'd prefer she stay paddling in the position she does her best work. Wahine loved the EBAD ref.

    Just when I was complementing the northeast for how functional it's been all summer it goes and gets like VB for 2 days. Wasn't even near the most people out that I've seen at these breaks. Goes to show you that rules of engagement and observed protocol are everything and so much more influential than numbers in the lineup.

    Hey, two days of sun, bigger surf, and fine organisms on and in the shore. I'm happy. Especially that I prevented my decapitation.

    While I was out in the water, I saw this family pull up in a truck and there was literally 2' between their truck and mine...I was pissed when I got out of the water and walked up.

    Happy Birthday, bro...could not have asked for a better day...some of the longest, most beautiful lines I've seen in a long time....def got my fill.
    BTW, KB did you see that kid on the yellow SUP...? Maybe 150 lbs on a 7'8" SUP & ripping it like a surfboard. None of that 12' SUP cruising down the line....that kid tore it up.

    Which, actually, was not positive. Because he was pretty much a diiick regarding set waves. He'd catch a set wave from way out back, finish his ride & oar back out, past even the longboard guys. Then he'd jump on the next set wave. Repeat, ad nauseum. With 3.5 @ 13 secs, he could, and did, make that wave-catching frequency happen. No one else had a shot.

    Coupla dudes started making noises, grumbling, but the kid moved down the line a bit so nothing happened.

    If this is the future, and I suppose it is, there will be blood.

    Same sh!t happened to me around 5PMish where I was at. Lineup was packed all day at one point topping 35 people, it finally thinned out and unbelievably it was just me, my buddy and two other chill guys on shortboards when SUPkook 1 and SUPkook two decided to paddle out. SUPkook 1 looked like Laird Hamilton plus 30 years and in all respects could rip, but both these clowns took every single set wave when they came out and was timed so perfectly that we didn't stand a chance. I debated on trying to snag one but decided against risking my head possibly being taken off. Once they left the crowd came back out. Still got a lot of fun ones, snaked a few people who kept dropping in on everyone, and launched the biggest airs on one of my kick outs. Not an epic day by any means, but most def awesomely fun. Surfed from 9am to like 730pm and slept like a baby.

    And Seldom & Sniffer, got some decent ones in your guys names as well!

    Ya know, I'm all about people ripping on anything, and I'm a mellow dude, but I recently had some SUP issues at my go to, and had to tell them to get the F out...not this swell, a cpl weeks back, but it was a real safety issue. And this spot is a distinct sponge/SB wave, really not conducive to SUP'ing. That zig-zagging through the lineup is complete BS.

    Scored Sunday through Tue on IOP. Sunday and Monday were great. T-storms both days kept the touristas off the Beach and kooks out of the water. That thinned the crowd and left plenty-o sweet rides for yours truly.

    Had the longboard humming. Unfortunately, on what was the last ride of the day Mon. something major blew out in my left thigh. Barely made the pop up. The mind was telling me to bail, the rest of me said, Go for it...that leg will heal! I could barely walk back to the truck but I was still smiling.

    Lots of ice and heat treatment and I was still a hurtin' pup on Tue. My wife was worried because it was her birthday and there were waves. Can the Old Man rally? BTW Happy B-day to you too Y.

    Of course there was no way I was gonna let her down. We paddled out into some awesome Birthday waves for her. I mostly bided my time and picked off three freight trains. The leg was holding up but each pop up re-aggravated the injury. I was jealous of the healthy, but luckily had had my fill over the previous days.

    It was really crowded and I felt increasingly in the way. I got out and watched from the safety of the beach as the tribe went off. It was fun watching from the shore as my wife, my bud's, and even "that guy" score ride after ride!

    It is great to see that Bertha delivered some goodies to all us kiddies. Still limping from that Lady, but as I read your stories and reflect on my own sessions, all I can say is...

    Slide on.

    Good stuff brother. Get well soon. Looks like plenty of time to heal during the flatness until the next hype trail rolls through.
