Im sure your friend is a great athlete but you should know better than to take someone out in anything over chest high on their second time? Thankfully you are both ok, it seems that if you weren't in great surfing shape, this story could have been tragic. I started surfing when I was 10 and by 15 I was pretty confident in bigger waves. But I joined the marine corps at 22 and at 30 my enlistment was complete. I've spent the last couple years trying to get back the surfing confidence that I once had and unfortunately I put myself in harms way thinking I was the same surfer I used to be. Im having a blast getting reacquainted with surfing but I have to remind myself that I don't have the skills I used to and the ocean is always the boss. Thanks for your story, it reminds me that even a strong surfer gets scared.
so im watching the newer battlestar galactica on netficks. i just watched the epsisode where Adama rescues everyone off of new caprica. what a great show. cant wait to see how it all plays out
Excuse please, I haven't read this thread yet, and I took a gander at it this morrow because it's been annoying me. I don't know why, but it has. I did a cursory read of it when it first came out, and kind of glazed over in my head, mans.
First, there were no 8 foot waves there this past Sunday. Nope......... Second, I don't know brus, I just don't care aboot some beginner calamity. Everybody has them ........it's called paying your dues and learning from experience. Why is someone axing advice on this situation. You guys made it to shore through those "8 Foot bombs" and alls well.
Then at first everyone weighs in on it........ and that's no good. Who cares. Sometimes this place is like a,"DEAR ANN LANDERS, I'm a retard who writes to nationally syndicated advice colums for help..........."
Then as I was glancing through, I saw I guy I respect, say that this other guy, who isn't really respectable and always gets in verbal fisticuffs with people and I doubt is real knowlegable about the surfing, is respectable. Oi vey......Did y'all follow that.
But I can't wait to delve into this one.......looks like a doozy......I want to thank whoever took it off subject. You should get an award. Man, the Boston Bomber ID thread is the only interesting one on the 1st page today beside this one, I reckon. As I said, I don't know what's going on yet. But again, whoever took it off topic should get an award. Thank you.
yeah man I can't, love my cat...some of the pee is mine to so it wouldn't be fair.
This thread reminds me of Big Fan.
This was quite comical. If I may, we should celebrate Festivus together (not Thanksgiving). If there are any hard feelings between one another, we can proceed to the Feats of Strength.
