Ya, he was a pretty surly and cranky fellow hence why we called him Old Man Hampton lol. I would usually avoid him unless the only place breaking was the wall. I agree his blog is a little pretentious and douchy, but his pic of the week is always pretty cool.

here on the eastcoast my record stands at 3 days.i don't surf everyday,not that we even have waves to surf everyday
Most recently 9 days straight around labor day. Some years ago 20 out of 25 days living at Chinco one September. Dale Rocks!! and yes he should be on the cover of all the surf mags. What great dedication and stoke!!
I really miss having consistent waves, but we have fewer surfers. Today wasn't very big here... 2-3 with the occasional chest high wave at some piss-poor period, but the conditions were superb. I paddled out into a sea of glass with two guys in the water. Two guys! Beat that!
