yeah rebel4liberty, ive been to hermosa twice and both times i saw totally out of control days where i almost drowned, but it only left me wanting more. and i agree mr swellinfo guy. the best part is charging with your buddies, but i dont have any buddies that charge, and im on a restricted liscence for 4 and a half more months, so i have to take what i can get as far as who i surf with. anyways lucky for me my wife doesnt mind driving me to go surf, but she works a lot and she cant just take off like i do when the surf is good. but shes taking me down to rodanthe tomorow to hopefully get some good waves so i cant complain. ill be down there till sunday so someone give me a shout if your gonna be down in OBX.
If that is what I think it is, It pulls you into waves. But how do you control it?
its basically a fast winch...you set it on the jetty and pull the surfer down the lineup and launch off the waves. I watched guys doing this on the santa barbara harbor jetty last year and to be honest it looked fun. it would be perfect at north side IRI...you could get air on the jetty peak and clothesline a kook longboarder all at the same time.
Its true that everyone hates them... but when they get kicked out of the water and told never to come the f*** back, then its really awesome.
Ten guys ganged up on this jackass and i was standing on the beach with a couple guys and the wave snob (wont say any names) came storming out of the water saying how much of assholes they were. next time dont drop in on everyone!! thanks
