Regular at the local break was out this past Sunday when an adult learner, who rented a board from the on beach kiosk, dropped in on him. Pete, who is usually pretty mellow and knows everyone in the parking lot by name, threw his arms up and yelled every expletive at that guy. Pete then paddled over the guy, who gave him blank look, and paddled off.
After the sesh, in the parking lot Pete could be overheard saying &*#&! *$%%#@!

got dropped in by one yesterday on what woulda been the "left of the day" on an otherwise marginal session. We almost collided, I came up shaking my head, he looked oblivious, I took that as a sign that the days session was over. Never let a kook ruin your day.

If it was mellow (shitty) enough for a beginner to drop in on "Pete" in the first place it's unclear to me why he'd get so pissed. Was he deprived of a potential radical slashback off of the critical section?

sometimes its not worth it. Im def not going to sound off at somebody over 2-3 foot el poopo especially if their on a wavestorm and the danger factor is inconsequential.

I assumed that the original post was written in the vein of a "The Onion" article.

Be glad its just a kiosk. One of my all time favorites has a surf school.


This is a bad day for the news media. Lets not kid ourselves, Toobin said on CNN. The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and theyre willing to lie to do it.
