for the love of ****ing dogs man, surf ETT-I-QUATE you douchy mc. douchbags. rockaway wtf? i don't care how bad i want a wave, unless a guy is flopping around out there or blowing more than a wave or two I do my best not to drop in on ANYONE. where the fork do you conts get off taking off on every wave thinking you can actually gain enough speed not to fork the guy who has right of way…even if he does blow past you and you eat it? you suck not just at surfing, but also respecting THE CODE, duuude. seems all of that went out the window the past few years at rockaway….yeah, i actually do like surfing there when its on or even sloppy because its home enough to call home. 20 years I've been surfing between FL and NY (and i aint no old fart) and holy ****e, the past few years in rock have been comedic. do us a favor, not you guys who are registered to this site, but anyone passing through who reads this crap, learn how to assess the situation before taking off….that means look left, right, forward, backwards, whatever….just don't enter kooksville and break laws that should be instilled in anyone who considers themselves a surfer….dude. as a side note, I'm hammered and eagerly await the continuing swell tomorrow. dog willing i wake up in time to catch waves before work and head to rock instead of further east, don't step foot on a board if you think you might be dropping in on people you shouldn't, unless you wanna scrippity scrap. know when you are putting yourself and others in danger. know how to respect those who share the ocean with you. as a god damnnn captain of boats, i can tell you, its imperative you always exercise good judgment, put safety first, and know what the pho-k you are doing on the water.
