    That giving away free surfboards is a good way to get kids in your van.

    I made a bold decision many years ago not to absorb any more information than I already had obtained at that point in my life.

    Actually I learned a few things here and there about people, different opinions and views on surf-related topics.

    Its been interesting to observe dialogue exchanged over local shapers vs. manufactured boards, fins, etc.

    Also, in my 30s I don't have much heated debate about religion anymore. Its a topic that doesn't come up much. Its good to know Im not the only heathen out there.

    There ain't no one creepy on here.

    Man, you've really been sheltered if you think people on here are "creepy."

    seenster gets some creep credit to...for his 'research' but he is quite agreeable for the most part

    also, rcarter and yank need some lithium, but hey, at least they are fun

    I've learned that the demographic of surfing has really changed.

    I met some cool people on here. Made a good pal.

    It gave me 3 or 4 women to fantasize aboot. I like when Betty talks dirty.

    Actually, this place has curbed my crazy desire to tell everyone how wrong they are aboot things. I let so many things go. Swellinfo taught me humility.

    I learned to take punishments from surfing internet moderators/owners. I learned how to navigate around bannings.

    I still don't know what Spicoli does for a living, but some things must remain a mystery I suppose.

    I learned how confusing wetsuites are. I never knew that before.

    Pray tell, now be pacific and detailed.....

    How am I creepy?

    You do know what creepy means, right?

    Oh I look so forward to this one.

    Crazy and creepy ain't necessarily the same thing, MIS 13.

    I'm pretty creppy, I'll admit.

    I've learned:

    -There are no closeouts, it's a matter of the rider not being fast enough.

    -The Suniliarity is approaching, and is evident in many of the threads contained here.

    -I learned a lot about my acute contact dermatitis.

    -Buoy readings do not matter(to shark hunter)

    -The list goes on...

    Man, thanks pal.


    I was peeing in my backyard the other day...then I heard a very irritated "Really!?!?" coming from an adjacent yard. My neighbour wasn't happy. That's the kind of creep I am.
