Winter's nothing like summer. If you end up following everyone's suggestions you will be much more likely to enjoy the winter swells but it will surely test your love of the sport. Burrr, enjoy fall my friend. Winter is just around the corner.
Definately really good advice so far. It took me a solid winter to get used to the cold, but I had a crap setup. I can't emphasize enough, get a good wetsuit. It makes all the difference. Everyone who is out is usually pretty good too, which makes for fun sessions.
My most memorible days were in the dead of winter with only one or two people out. I can still remember that mid december swell two years ago, barrels all day
Could be worse. He could have no guts OR experience like Obama.
ok i have a couple of questions/statements for el porto. to set things even, ive been to el porto and its sorta fun. i wouldnt necessarily call it a surf destination but it was ok. allright thats out of the way.
first of all, do you truly know Sarah Palin and how much she lies!! Do you know what she did in both her town and state governments in Alaska with the people she didn't "like"?? There's no doubt that John McCain is an honorable American, after all he fought for our country (but that doesn't make Barack Obama un-American!)
Second of all, that whole experience issue makes me sick. Why does everyone keep beating the same old worn out dead horse that Hillary Clinton started out beating? Most people out there only obtain information and opinions from the press (me included). But facts are facts. Sarah Palin has the bulldog part down as well as the lipstick part, but does she have the capability and trust that such a prominent country like America would elect to be a vice president?? come on..
Thirdly, why do you write on Mid-Atlantic forums if your EL PORTO? Stay in El Snorto. Please! There are enough kooks in NJ already! Many kooks on this website too. (i probably sound like a kook right now too! haha)
Fourth, a vice president has not affected the desicion for PRESIDENT since Lyndon Johnson and the 60s. Think about that before you go off on how amazing Sarah Palin is!!!!
SHE WONT WIN YOU THE ELECTION!!
5th, dito what MDsurfer said.
and last, what makes you think lying about the amount of energy alaska produces gives Sarah Palin experience! Maybe if she traveled and interacted with people of other races and ethnicities like Obama did, she would have the experience she needs.
and also p.s. everyone, i know this doesnt matter that much, but Barack Obama has lived in both HAWAII and BALI!! Two of biggest surfing capitols in the world. Obama went to high school with pro surfers. He learned different languages, and even went to Harvard and Columbia Universities! So he is quite smart and he is relatable.
and Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house...
