    Reminds me of a similar story. I moved to HI and drove up to Haleiwa with a guy I worked with to surf up north for an early winter day. He put his board on the back of my pickup and went back to grab something else out of the car as I commented, "wow that's a really nice shape." He said, "thanks man, it's a few months old but I take really good care of it." Suddenly this wind gust came and blew his board a few feet in the air and straight onto a rock. He got super pissed off, "why'd you have to say how nice it is? it's all your fault!!" hilarious.

    1st and only trip to PR, sitting in the lineup at "little Malibu" on my freshly rented board. Nice set approaches, I spin to catch the 1st wave, leash get wrapped around a coral head and I proceed to take the next 3-4 on the head while attached to both the board and the FN coral head. My wife watched the whole thing transpire after saying she wasn't paddling out because of all the coral heads. Don't be such a woman says I.....

    oh, and wetsuit on backwards. The moment of truth hits as you enter the water, in a full froth, and try to zip your front zipper, which is now in the back.
