    Anyone ever have a porch/exterior light dispute with a neighbor? (Warning: Contains CasaMugs problem)

    Truth I somehow managed to avoid any noise complaints for a long time until one day a woman came over and absolutely lost her sh!t one day. I felt bad for her. Up until then my dumbass just figured that I wasn't disturbing anyone. I was nearing the end of my raging party days anyways. We had...

    Anyone ever have a porch/exterior light dispute with a neighbor? (Warning: Contains CasaMugs problem)

    I live below twins, a 4 year boy and girl. I hear them constantly, pretty much whenever they're home they're running around or banging on something. Those monsters just never stop moving. I complain once in a while when it gets really bad, and the neighbors are somewhat receptive. But, I...

    Pyzel "Pyzalien 2" vs "Phantom"

    AM1's. I started with large Mayhems. Then went to AM1's and haven't looked back. I'm 155lbs and ride a stock 5'8".

    So ridiculous. This is why cities do things like close beaches for the "potential" of lightning strikes.

    Pyzel "Pyzalien 2" vs "Phantom"

    I can't really answer your question. But I will use this opportunity to profess my love for the Phantom. It's the perfect SoCal shortboard, IMO.

    John John Florence's "Ghost" And The Art Of Big Wave Guns with Shaper Jon Pyzel

    He hit the jackpot when John's mom asked him to shape him a board. Sounds like he wasn't even a very experienced shaper at the time.

    Scott Anderson RIP

    He shaped my first custom about 25 years ago. 6'3" thruster with red running along one side of the deck. If you lived around the Santa Monica/Venice area in the 90's there was a good chance you owned one of his boards. RIP Scott

    Help! What do I do?

    My gf kept threatening to buy me a changing pancho. I avoided that landmine for years, to the point where she stopped bringing it up. Then one day a buddy of mine gifted me one out of the blue for helping him (try) to learn to surf. Son of a B. I don't use it much. But it's nice on cold days...

    If you left California, where would you move?

    My lady thinks we're going to move in and immediately throw a party and invite all our neighbors. Ummm, let's see what we're dealing with first, was my response. We're in HPP 2 blocks from the water. From what I can tell Tweakerville is only a few blocks away.

    If you left California, where would you move?

    The Big Island. We have a plot of land there that the lady and I will probably retire to. I gotta be near the ocean. I'd also love to spend time in Amsterdam and France. BTW, I still feel CA is one of the greatest places on the planet and I feel lucky that I've lived almost my whole life here.

    +1 on Isurus. My 3/2 has been as warm as my 4/3 EBomb through this recent run of cold water.
