Yea the cows bug bigtime. Asking me to stop for selfies, asking what it is I'm riding, etc... I may just paddle back next time.

Yes, tried the 210 and would prefer that, but I only have the 180 proto. I rode the 210 in chest hi and it was buttah. I'd recommend it.

Winded on 4 for 1's anytime regardless on which wing and my weight.

The hand kite/kite wing explosion is about to happen. Get on board cause it's gonna open up the prone world to unlimited access to all kine spots.

Garner wasn’t murdered.

Everyone has blood and when they lose it, everyone dies. Bleeding out from a gunshot wound is nothing at all like having an asthma attack from over exertion, made worse by obesity, high blood pressure and an enlarged heart.

Very very few people would die from what happened to Garner.

His death was much more an accident than a murder.

From Huxley ~ The Doors/The Tibetan Book of the Dead:
"... the departed soul is described as shrinking in agony from the Clear Light of the Void, and even from the lesser, tempered Lights, in order to rush headlong into the comforting darkness of self-hood as a reborn human being, or even as a beast, an unhappy ghost, a denizen of hell. Anything rather than the burning brightness of unmitigated Reality - anything!"

I'm on long point breaks, surf a lot in the season.

I do Pavel Tsatoulines Grease the Groove.

not sore, keep strong from neural adaptation and a volume tailored to how much surfing I'm doing.

Basically dead lifts and Turkish get ups or chin ups and Swiss ball push-ups or jack knifes. Swing the kettlebell for conditioning if there is no surf. No gym, do it from home with simple gear.

strengthening the lower half definitely improves surfing. Most people do weak turns because their legs and core are weak.

Not that I'm happy with the whole situation but what's the alternative? More sprawl? Money and greed will win every time. Seems like more people that complain about how crowded it's getting aren't even from here.

Genuine question: suppose a recession happens. Markets crash. Layoffs. Etc. retirement savings, 401ks halved, if not wiped out. Home values plummet.

And trump and his team show no capability or aptitude to steer the country through it.

Will the people on this board still support trump?

It’s different now. (Actually, marina del Rey is pretty white).

Ah, now I see one of the reasons why you are the way you are. You grew up with and only associate with white people. If you had any non-whites in your schools growing up you likely avoided them, looked down upon them. Maybe you try sometimes to “help” them because you see yourself as a better, as a person who’s superiority (as a white man) has placed you in the position to be able to help your lesser man. But you fail to realize that need of help isn’t based on skin color.

To this day you see non-whites as “others”, as not part of the same society you are in. You notice an increase in non-whites and fret about things “changing”.

6 months ago my neighbor 3 doors over were white. Then non-whites moved in. Guess what? Nothing has changed except the names. The neighborhood is the same as before. Nobody cares.

Brown people are weird to you, hard for you to listen to and that bothers you. What bothers you even more is the fact that it bothers you so you project your own racist thoughts and feelings onto to others in an attempt to relieve yourself of the guilt.

It’s pretty sad that you’re like this but this post has bee very illustrative of your mindset.

Thanks for sharing.

It's also important to look in person and not rely on the cameras.....I'm sure you guys already know this.

I can't count how many times I've looked at the cam and said "I'm going to skip it", then went up and looked and had a fun 2ft session. Kind of like fishing, you can't catch any unless you're there.

That's why I like visiting the mountains. I love it up there but the ocean is home.

last couple of swells have really closed out my usual spots making it pretty frustrating. complete closeouts yesterday with a couple that opened up. Today was at desperation bar and got a few but mostly closed out as well.

And leaving you car out of sight at Arnold’s is asking for trouble.

I use to park at Arcturus (PCC Forged Products) when I had a contract with them.
