    Oh man... whoever said not many was very wrong... I live in Virginia Beach which is basically the biggest military town on the east coast. And trust me, there are tons of "military surfers."

    That being said, in my opinion, 95% of them are total kooks. They just flat out suck, and they ride some terrible boards. They seem to love funboards or like 6'8 thrusters that look like they belong on the north shore. They love to cut people off too. The worst is when some military kook just burns you on a wave, falls in front of you, and when you confront him about it, he says "No man, YOU cut ME off."

    On a side note, when you see one of these said kooks in the water, (especially at your home spot) just incessantly tell them to go home. Its fun to see how aggro they get. They will immediately want to fight you. At which point you point out all the parents on the beach with little kids, and tell them that the second they throw a punch one of those parents will call the cops faster than they can say blueberry pancakes. They usually attempt to catch like 3 more waves after this before leave with their tail between their legs.

    P.S. Sorry if I have offended anyone here, I have just had waaaayy too many bad experiences with "surfers" in the military.

    I rarely comment on forums, but BonerSurfs, you might be the lamest person in the water.

    Nah. Because I believe stereotypical bigotry is a characteristic of a complete tool and starting altercations with people and then threatening to call the police the actions of a totally spineless whimp, I actually feel sorry for you. I'm not offended, though.

    I am curious, however.....I've been surfing for over 30 years and probably surfed VB before you were born. Am I entitled to call it my "home break"?

    By the way, I apologize that my quiver doesn't fit in with your profile.

    alright alright... My post may have been a little overboard. When I said 95% are kooks, i guess i really meant like 65%. I'm sure there are plenty of good surfers in the armed forces... But trust me, there are loads of overly macho, overly aggro kooks in the military that try to surf. Sorry, but its what I think and what I have experienced.

    And like i said, I live in VB, where there is a lot of navy folk. Their sailors, simply put. And you know what they say about sailors...

    Once again sorry for the people I have offended. Call me a kook, whatever, I don't care none.

    And to Ray. F... You may wanna ready my post again, I'm not the one thats gonna be calling the cops, its the parents of the little kids on the beach. And if you feel that fighting over cutting someone off and having them tell you to go home is justified, well then your only proving my point. A simple "sorry won't happen again," would be more than enough... But noooo, you military folk are ready to rip someones head off on the drop of a dime.
