    SS, you know South Philly trash really means "Italian trash"

    Youse guys are pretty greasy and always trying to give me a loan at 5 points.

    Though non-surf related, MIS's list was good. However, interesting that many on the list dealt with weapons of mass destruction. That's interesting due to MIS's propensity to decry violence.

    I'm a violent statist. And, boy howdy, do I get upset when people don't keep things surf-related.

    I almost beat-up my dog this morning. The dude is psycho - like mix Vince Collier and Anthony Ruffo and Flea together.

    I remember drinking rum in orange soda...no a good mix... and riding my bike to CVS and buying a pack of Marlboro's for $1.50. And then vomiting directly outside the door

    Orange soda and rum....

    I was 12 or 13 or something.

    Washington Township, huh? I used to buy cars in Turnersville because that's where the car dealership action is off-the-hook.

    Remember when the "layback" was a really cool move, when actually you were just barely hanging on while sliding a$$ all over the place on your twin fin?

    My Danny kwock "wonder bread" white polka dot baggies. We would ride around in the boat and our chicks would say " we can see your schlong." Standard response "you like?" They were short and I was long.

    This treade is great...nice on fl.surfdog.

    1) Trying to stand up on one of those canvas rafts. And getting a rash from riding it all day.
    2) Drive to the end of the island, park anywhere you want, do whatever you want. No one cared.
    3) Blowing fireballs with 151.
    4) Bags were measured in fingers. 4 fingers was a good deal, none of this weighing crap.
    5) Driving to the beach with no place to stay. If you can't find a girl to hookup with or some party to hit and crash at, just go sleep on the beach.
    6) Paradise, and I ain't talking about some island. You could get it from the skater dude that drove the ice cream truck.
    7) Waking up on the beach hungover with a 10k race running around me like I was a piece of driftwood. Saying f it and going back to sleep. Waking up a 2nd time when they came back down the beach and cussing them all out for waking me up, jumping in the ocean, then starting all over again.
    8) Tear a$$ing around Cherry Grove on a dirtbike and laughing at the cops playing catch.
    9) Sunscreen? I have a tan, wtf do I need with sunscreen?
    10) The 9ft "Board of Pain".
    11) Making bongs in the garage.
    12) Painting my buddy's POS white 4 door fairmont. Was like a big canvas. Ghost Busters logo on one door, T.S.O.L on the other.
    13) Bad Dog.
    14) Not knowing or caring about 60/40 rails, eggs, fishes, thrusters, quads, or volume. It's a surfboard, you stand up and ride it.

    Clay gave a daily surf report on FM radio... I forget what station, but it was back in the "call the surf shop for a report" days. I remember because I was living in Union County at the time and it was an hour to Manasquan Inlet. Worst days of my life...

    Speaking of nostalgia Mr. Riley, prease remember to bring them old boogie mags to this South Norwalk trash on Friday, I'm pretty f'n psyched to see them.

    Idk if Riley ever told you guys, but I didn't know until he told me, Haouli Reeves and Keanu Reeves are relations somehow...cousins, was it?

    I would not believe anything Riley says.
    He needs to stay heavily medicated, IMHO.

    Lots of great ones in this tread!

    Mr. Mac's surf report in a disappearing Chas accent "stop by the shop and wax is only a qwarter if you tell'em you heard it on the surf report"

    Mr. Mac's report "this is a day that seperates the men from the boys"

    Monck's corner store. Groms got credit if he thought you earned it. Payed off on the poker machine.
    Local surf picks on the wall.

    The Sanitary restaurant.

    The smell of coconut suntan lotion by the pier all summer.

    The old pier and pavilliion.

    Surfing at night at The Atlantic House.

    The lighting bolt house past the washout.

    Knowing everyone at your break.

    EBC bus line. (Everybody Be Cool)

    The first girl I ever saw in a thong!

    Any FBrs remember these?

    Barry, you should believe everything I say.

    I've proven myself as the bastion of honesty on here.

    Ahh one day Chavez was speaking motorcycle clubs.....I mentioned "Fish"

    He knew him. See that's veracity.

    Boom RADDADBRAD shows-up and I took a stab based on his messages...like, I threw out his name.

    Boom I know him as we tore apart various peaks from The Coffee Shop to Bergen to Holyoke. Hell we even went to 25th ST.

    See that's veracity.

    Beachbreak's son is moving to Hammonton, NJ. I tell him the scoop.....he checks it out.....and was all, "Wow everything you said is true."

    See that's veracity.

    Besides global surf travel, no one on here knows more than me. Sure LBCrew and types know just as much as I, but no one knows more.

    Like, Barry, you could just show me a random picture and I'll tell you, generally, where it is. Now, ok, the Seth Stafford types could tell you what page of what magazine and the volume......

    Barry, please have Seth Stafford take pictures of your weddings and First Communion celebrations. Thanks.

    Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford

    Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford

    Jack, Fran, and Ian

    Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford

    Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford. Seth Stafford........Seth Stafford

    listening to the weather radio...thick non stretchy winter suits...surf shops were different...smaller and seemed more personal.

    I expected this threade to blow-up a bit more.....

    Then I 'membered that only twenty dudes on here have actually been surfing for longer than two years.

    Man, I was reading one old mag the other day, and it was like death, dude.

    Rell Sun, Jason Bogle, Banning Capps, Eric Diaz, Shawn Barron .......there were just a ton of dudes in it that are now deaded.

    Banning Capps fell off a freaken hotel balcony.

    And I believe Californian Todd Martin turned to beating old ladies for their purses. Saw him, too. And ....

    It also had a bunch of jailed dudes...Mickey Nielson....Marvin Foster.......

    Ha they all got locked up for doing the drug trafficking. Silly Hawaiians.

    Then I read an interview with Robbie Page. I miss that cheeky bastard. But my Lord, an actual interview with a surf star that was humorous and engaging and forthcoming. These dudes today are ****ing boring, man.

    I miss the hell-man types of yesteryear. Brock Little, Shawn Briley.......Heck, I even miss Kong.

    Even the big wave nuts of today are bores. Dude, Flea used to ingest LSD, meth and drink a case of Bud and then hit Mavs.

    Man, go back to the early 90's. Imagine being a Flea or Barney. When not on some trip for their sponsors, they woke to quite a nice little life.

    Wake up, get stoned, do some meth, drive to The Lane, step forth from the vehicle, kings of the scene, any wave they want is theirs at any area spot, surf, get stoned, eat breakfast, kings of the scene, start drinking, surf again up the coast.......

    And they got paid to do it.

    Ah freaken youth !!

    Enjoy your 20's arseholes.

    "Enjoy your 20's arseholes"

    Amen to that. I hated turning 30. It bothered me way more than turning 40!

    I remember me and the crew would roll up to a party in the summertime sporting our surf trunks with favorite T (tucked in)! Looking back...we didn't give a F. That was dressing up!

    and the layback...I still bust that out on the shoulder. Love planting that back foot and just lay in to it!

    Speaking of dressing up....Nike hightops black on black with black socks was the shiz!
