Lol really bro? Not getting involved, but getting involved? Right. I've got nothing against you man. I even took you off the ignore function and glad I did. You've had some good posts lately and definitely some funny ones I've enjoyed. Give up your angst against me whatever it is. You'll sleep better. Or don't. Either way, nothing against you on this end. That's the thing - I'm not here for validation from people I don't know and most of whom I will never meet. That would be a pretty lonely existence seeking that. I come on SI to talk surf, learn about surf, and laugh my arse off at a variety of hilarious posts by comic genius cats. This whole paranoia that anyone/everyone has about how good anyone else here is at surfing is out of hand. Explain to me how it affects any one of your lives how good or not good someone you'll never meet is at surfing? Even at your home break, aside from messing up a couple of your rides every so often, how does the talent or kookery of your fellow locals affect your life? It doesn't. You guys are fixated on things outside of your circle of impact on your life. Would me photodocumenting my life ease your angst? Really, would it? Would it make any of your lives better? No. Then why demand it? I could post all sorts of pics and you'd have no way of knowing if they were real anyway bro. What's the use? This "spat" you're talking about is pure hate by MIS and me simply laughing it off. Honestly, there's no way I'd ever get pissed or insulted by the incorrectly written word of someone that can't effectively communicate. This seems to mean a hell of a lot more to you cats than it does me. I wouldn't even be on SI this morning if I could effin sleep on this flight. Mad turbulence, ugly flight attendants, bad food. It's ok. We are somewhere over Kansas or Ohio or Michigan and I'll be getting spun OTF in 15s swell by lunch Pacific time. Imbibing a few pints of salt water will be cleansing. I may or may not be surfing well today (for me) but I'll sure as hell be enjoying it. May even pick up a new Carver at Jack's. Had my eye on one last time out.
