    Definitely, I surfed pretty much every spot in Maui and not once did I ever feel like I was not welcome, but instead made friends with the locals I met...super-rad island!!!!

    In 5th grade my parents bought me a purple and pink board from Sunshine House in OCMD. I am 32 now so that was like 23 years ago. Best waves were
    1)Maui
    2)Waikiki just for the experience
    3)Hatteras
    4)New Hampshire spots

    Coolest place was the Amafi coast in Italy. The water was beautiful even if the waves weren't big. Biggest waves were Hurricane Bill in OCMD, and some random Noreaster surfing in Jersey back in 1999.

    My dream waves:
    1) Ollies Point
    2) Jefferies Bay
    3) Snapper with no one out

    i started in Va. Beach inn 67, had to do to South end to get good enough to surf at The Steel Pier. The experienced guys would surf up behind you there after you were on the wave, push off your board and carry it to the beach under their arm. No cords made this possible. We went through the rapid change from 9'6' down to under 7 in just two years. Lots of people made a 7'6" from their 9'6" including myself. I ruined a really nice Hansen as I look back but our "cut downs" made us feel like Wayne Lynch. We discovered Hatteras right away and I feel fortunate to have surfed it before it was "discovered", although you can still surf alone on The Outer Banks. I live in Kitty Hawk and still hit it when there is swell. I have surfed Hawaii {Oahu South Shore , Kauai, and Big Island}, Mainland and Baja Mexico, Santa Cruz to Trestles, Eleuthera and Elbow Key Bahamas, Tahiti and The Tuamotus {Tikihau} . i plan to keep traveling when I can to new places, preferably where there is no crowd and warm water.
    Stay healthy and keep surfing, protect your eyes, skin and ears. The exposure will catch up with you, use ear plugs to ward off surfers ear, wear a water hat to save your eyes {I had to have surgery to cut a cancer off of my eyeball} Regards, Greg
