    Got some footage in DE from Tuesday. Plenty clips of Big Wave Dave ripping. Had a freakin smudge on my lens unbeknownst to me. Video came out alright tho.

    Monday was pretty damn fun here. Wish I brought my set up to film, but I was too busy getting it on with the fins/ surf mat and body surfing.

    Dave was out today as well. Could you hear him making his crazy noises while paddling?

    If you ever have an hour to kill, just ask him if he thinks its possible to surf a tsunami. You wont be sorry!

    Caught some fun thigh to occasional waist high glassy waves this morning with 2 other lbs out. Was pleasantly surprised by the sesh. Soft tops don't bother me as long as they stay out of my way. I do judge you if you are on one. Just saying.

    Yeah...? How about those same peeps going after every set wave, en masse, and catching them & riding them straight to the shallows?
    Would bet that you wouldn't stay long in you Ghandi robes during that mess :)

    Maybe, just wondering where i was that i missed out on the change to this new idea of fun.
    How did this happen?

    As for marketing surfing, sorry, i don't care.
    So no, i don't have to commend their bullshit.

    And as for it being here in full effect, i guess so, if you say so, but again, if that is the new surfing, i can take your lesson in bullshit or i can choose to say no, that sort of thing doesn't interest me, looks like surf camp to me, just not my thing.

    I'll just drag my useless leg down to the water, go out in excruciating pain, and maybe catch some waves. By myself.

    Or i won't. Because i can''t. You can relate, correct?

    Enjoy your softop revolution. I just didn't realize it happened.
    I'm not extinct.
    But i am nothing.. And nobody. Happy to be.

    I echo your premise (under the radar who gives a shit).

    Hope your perseverance results in many more waves man...

    Thanks, it was more of the same tonight....pure 1-2 foot stoke waves right at the 5:30 low tide. Rode a few on a log I shaped, then set the board on the beach to shoot a few pics and two guys I barely know but who unwisely came without longboards borrowed it and it felt nice to see a board i shaped being ridden by others. Shot a few of everyone having a blast.

    took the friday off to keep my sanity. rain all over, but the chop n rides were well worthy. put in at 3rd, got out by the pier. Had some fun rides to shore, but also remember not being on top of my game either last week. nothing out there to ride about it this morning before work. pool noodles are dangerous

    We have this beach replenishment problem. There is swell but it breaks on the beach.

    The beaches in my town get replenished regularly going back to 1992. Each replenishment actually helps the surf in my town. The surf we get these days is far better than it was during the first decade that I surfed before that program began. We get a brief period of time where its messed up but after a storm or two things sort out. Our surf is more powerful and rippable than it ever was before beach replenishmenrts began.

    The key factors seem to be that my town has a good bit of curves and contours to it. Second our jetties reach out further than in other beach towns where beach replenishment creates featureless beaches and crap surf.

    Why are you so triggered? I didn’t talk about your handicap. You’re making up arguments over nothing. This so-called “revolution” you speak of is certainly not mine. I’m simply stating what it is.

    If you’re pissed about soft tops, maybe you should march into the hundreds of thousands of surf shops throughout the world and condemn them for teaching lessons with them. Probably 99% of shops are using them. Then you can lead your crusade against the pros and their marketing hype. I’m sure they’ll all stop because you pointed the finger.

    And don’t forget to tell all the volunteer organizations, e.g. heart of surfing, to stop using their soft tops with kids with disabilities or wounded vets.

    What a joke. Maybe you’d fare off better on a soft top.

    What we have here is a failure to communicate.
    You really got me 100% wrong.
    The last thing i would do is waste one thought on this.
    I was trying to clarify and i failed.
    Whatever else you wrote today i will correct.
    I was wrong. Jayd said revolution. You said trend.
    You are wrong. You said we have to commend. No. I do not.
    My point. I just didn't realize. And it doesn't affect me.
    Because our waves are shit. And spread out.
    I mentioned my leg pain because that means i stay far from anyone else, so it really doesn't affect me.
    I have a wonderful quiver. I would not need to ride a soft board.
    What anyone else does in the water has no effect on me.
    You posted video. I responded. You responded. I responded to correct your interpretation. And you sent this. So here i am again. My thought was shock that the gravyobrien video was what i perceived.
    Whatever that meant you got me all wrong because i can make the case that surf camp surf shop softie marketing is just a bunch of bullshit that means nothing to me personally, whether it is some positive surf community marketing boom to surf industry and good charity or not.
    It's whatever.
    Did you ever think maybe i just don't see things your way, and that's ok?
    I also mentioned my leg because i thought to find some common ground with you, since i thought you were recovering from surgery and can relate to being unable, and guess what like it or not i lead the large group youth surf community at this beach and have for decades, and am a beloved local and we do the whole thing very differently with real boards and everybody's stoked!
    Different stokes for different folks. Their way is not the only way.
    I for one appreciate much of your contributions to this here surfing forum, but i do not agree with all of it, clearly, and you seem to dislike much of my contribution, and i would like you to accept it, but it doesn't really matter, though it does tarnish our potential as forum friends.
    I don't mean to disrespect forum people, but i don't need to agree with forum posts.
    It's whatever.
    I'm sorry to you. It seems to happen alot.
    Thought the gravyobrien video was really strange from my perspective. That doesn't make me wrong. Jayd agreed with me.
    Go jump down his throat. You seem frustrated and angry. Not nice.

    Facts are facts. Jayd understood my point 100%, antoine liked it.
    You misunderstood 100%.
    And we are all different. And that is good. That is my point, and i have a right to it unless i am banned. April 2008 and still going.
    You kept us going when we needed it kanman. Don't take my 1960's mentality personally.
    You have a gift for writing about individual waves ridden and surfs and i always thought i was the only one who likes to describe my waves, so we have pure stoke in common, and should maybe try to overlook our differences, if you see my point here.
    I care that you contribute to stoke by writing about it. I don't really care about the unimportant things we don't. We both are dedicated to surfing. Feel the love.

    That was one of the longest rants I’ve ever taken then time to read on here. I’m still confused. But I respect the way you ended it. Peace be with you brethren. We are merely surfers in the end.

    And just to clarify, I do see both the positives and negatives of soft tops. It just hasn’t really had much of an effect on me, personally.

    I’ll end this with positive vibes for your health. Hope you keep on keeping on.
