    I think y'all take the whole "don't tell the spot" thing a little too seriously. If your going to get waves your going to get waves. Encourage surfing any where, any time. Break down the barriers. Surfing is not a cult, its just regular people. I read so much hostility on the internet about telling spots but I don't know why its a freakin' beach. People don't get mad in public when others have open conversations about breaks. If someone is on the internet seeking out surf information, why not tell them the spot. If you are really afraid that is the reason your not getting waves your doing it wrong. Directed at none of you fine folks just putting some thoughts into writing. Remember we don't hold the answers, you are not the guardian of surfing, it came long before you and will go on long after, you are accomplishing nothing. If people actually talked about specific spots this site would be worthwhile.

    I kinda thought the same thing plenty of tude and agros. However, if you look at my post about High Island spots the locals were happy to help. Don't know if it's because there isn't a lot of us in the area or we just have a different mind set. Maybe bigger beaches? Not sure. As long as you don't act like a kook everyone is welcome.

    I surf IOP at 25th street. Sometimes I hit 28th street. No one cares and I like it that way.

    lmao bravo buddy.i agree but im sure a lot of us dont want a 20+ crowd to showup to your break like the lowers raid..which would be pretty cool if u ask me.almost everyone drives to the surf spot.its very rare u get to look out your back window and surf perfect waves like jj florence.here on the eastcoast we travel far,and most of the time u end up surfin a new spot because your spot was flat,and the locals are nice.

    I don't think it makes the forum worthless... Where else would I get to read about racism, political beliefs, sharks and the occasional surf story?

    Why this forum is gangbusters

    I surf little Rhody top to bottom and sometimes by getting on a ferry to visit my distant relatives. Also, Breezy and Rockaway but ONLY with near relatives. Love me some travel, too.

    This forum is gangbusters because: 1) Two Nicaraguan surf camps are waging guerilla warfare here and 2) We can talk about what a tomcat this yoga surf milf is when it is too dark to surf or there is no surf. Bet you she is wild in the sack.

    I think that lady is crazy. Lol.

    The problem with talking up a spot on Internet is the enormous number of people the information reaches. I suppose it doesn't matter one way or the other.. But why pour gas on the fire?

    I wouldn't mind talking about my favorite spots because the terrain and obstacles to get to them weed out all but the most determined surfers

    What, you didn't like the six minute office tour? If you watch long enough, she admits to BubonicPhoniks that she's a Sebastian Inlet local who sometimes surfs Jacksonville pier.

    And Mfitz makes the very Obvious point.

    Sure I'll talk about my favorite surf break. If you want to go its a very remote point break that breaks best on a higher tide over a broken oyster shell encrusted reef. Hop a flight to San Salvador, grab a taxi and ask to be taken to the wild east, pay a fisherman to take you 10 miles north can't miss it. Closer to home, I think not. There's no reason to name spots, just find your own and keep them to yourself. I don't want or need to hear about yours and can't understand why you would want to know mine since they are not secret to anyone around here.
