Re: At Least The 21st Dude Is Leaving! Funny you posted this. I saw that view myself after surfing weak knee to waist high surf all morning alone. I surfed 2 spots, one in town one somewhere else and never had anyone closer then about 1/2 mile. When I jumped online back at the office I brought up the cam to see if it was still breaking and almost **** myself. What the hell is that all about? Those waves were so small you wouldn't have missed anything turning around and going home let alone paddling out into that horde. Crazy stuff. When I surf I want to cach waves, not sit by while a guy 10 feet closer to the peak paddles into a knee high closeout.
Re: At Least The 21st Dude Is Leaving! hahaha mob mentality. first off 48th street has that rep as the best spot in oc. second off, dudes roll up to the beach, look around, see 20 dudes on one break and decide it's gotta be better there since everyone else is surfing there...
just drive up or down the beach a lil and you can find a firing sandbar to surf by yourself!
Re: At Least The 21st Dude Is Leaving! Pah, when I post for midtown it's not usually 48 I'm checking. It would be different if I put up reports of the actual street I was at. Additionally, I doubt that report influences people to go south or north as opposed to 48-that place has a long reputation as the premier break.
