    i joined to keep up with the latest beach fashions..
    .i hate to hit the beach in a bob marley tshirt when Jimi Hendrix or steve miller is in style etc....or wearing a quicksilver when retro local motion/natural art is the thing...

    Very good reasons!

    I once got into a p!ssing match AKA internet squabble with Slashdog because I jokingly made a similar comment, but that was before sarcasm was easily read on the interweb...

    PS I am wearing Quicksilver socks and Quicksilver deck shoes (Ross's 15 bucks for the whole foot outfit) as I type this... Am I cool?

    I am an active member on many boards (fishing, reef tanks, treasure hunters, marine electronics, planted aquariums, pigeon breeding, animal husbandry, aquaculture, astronomy, photography) including another delmarva surfing discussion board. Was natural to join this one when it opened up.

    Ha, not sure about that just an hyperactive creative streak. I raise pigeons and love playing with their genetic strains and seeing what comes out. I have raised and sold tropical fish since I was 8 years old then expanded into aquacultured coral and sold them to shops around NJ and Maryland. I love to paint watercolors and make surfboards and build things. Just built this over the winter, love tiny houses. Wait am I renaisance man?
