Not to be a ****, but why hate on the rich? If you don't take advantage of the opportunities that are offered to get ahead, you have no-one to blame but yourself. it's easy to tear others down but very tough to elevate yourself. Most rich people I know worked very hard to get that way and sacrificed more than most of us. While we play in the ocean, most of them are at work building their businesses. And who cares if their kids have it handed to them? At some point, those kids are going ot have to make it on their own and then they will pay if they are slackers.

I agree with the fact that alot of people that are rich are a-holes and need to be taken down a notch. Usually the a-holes are people that did not work hard for that money, but just inherited it. However there are others that did work hard for their money and they act cool. You can't hate on all of them. That is like hating on blacks or Jews because there are a few bad apples (there are plenty of fu<ked up white people too). However I strongly disagree with wanting the recession to get worst to teach anybody a lesson. The recession is hurting way more middle class/working people than it is the rich people.

If you guys never heard saw of it look up zeitgeist addendum. Not like promoting it but it is a good movie and it's pretty interesting. Worth a check.
and by the way, I've alredy knifed the land rover tires about 75 times, they just always replace them without a dent in their savings... haha no jk
if someone has a land rover because they have indeed worked for it, i'm fine, but it's those stuck-up kids who are way over-priviliged in life that piss me off.
I'll admit it, I come from an upper middle class/lower upper class family, but my parents never spoil me with crap like that unless I really earned it through me schoolwork and dedication.

yea haha... to be honest, my favorite size to surf is anywhere from thigh to chest because I've come to like longboarding more than shortboarding (I aim more for style than forcing anything). That's not to say I don't like 8 ft. tubes or peeling head high glassy dawn patrol walls!!

I like the mellower stuff better for sure because I hate long, annoying, draining paddles.
...even though here in Jersey they're not that long, but on an east groundswell when it's closin out, it may not be a far paddle compared to obx paddles, but the level of effort is definitely pretty high.

i dont hate on the rich, if they earned it then good for them, and as a student in highschool going to college soon i aspire be one of them, and even the snobby rich people that get everything handed down to them, yes their annoying and ignorant but its not going to affect the amount of money i make or the way i live. i don't think we hit bottom, and i personally from the things i read and taught in my econ class n learning about US history now i think the gov't should leave people alone, cut taxes, and try to get people to spend, not put me in debt for the rest of my life! we need to get the ***** out of wallstreet and reorganize.
and shakagrom and wbsurfer, i think im your age and i disagree, when its over head i feel like i finally get to try moves that i see in movies and stoked that im not surfing thigh high mush and actually do some good size bottom turns. Hannah= ideal conditions because i finally was able to try stuff because it was actually walling up consistantly.
