I am a big wave bodyboarder. What I mean by that,is that I go after 6-9 ft, usually just befor and after big storms passing through Delaware, I never see any other body boarders go after the big waves, most of the folks i see are going after those short,shore breaking little slabletts. If anyone wants to go hang out with me a little further out past the line-up, just a give a holler, Have fun,be safe,Happy memorial Day 2006, let the games begin. Peace. Old John
