    surfing

    Discussion started by drunken phil - Sep 10, 2002

    ive seen bike, skate and snowboarding threads. maybe i missed the surfing thread but this shit rocks. i surf whenever i et the chance. it's relatively inexpensive, it's not illegal in some places, a good way to show your manly body off to them ladies and it's just an all around fun thing to do. living in nicaragua with the pacific ocean is great. uncrowded surf spots, sunny all year, warm water, and um... cheap weed(if i shouldnt say this i guess i'll have to edit it) and close to the city; no need for long, drawn out car rides. anyway i was just wondered if im an island on this one. i know that surfing culture, not nescesarily the actual sport(if you could call it thaT), has hit pop culture which does suck. i agree.

    ....

    I surf and body board... just thought that instead of making a whole new thread I'd come here. I have no surf oard at the moment so I am mainly bodyboarding. And that shit about surfing being inexpensive... BULLSHIT!! Boards around here cost upwards or 350 for a good board.

    i am going to give this a try soon. looks fun. i like snowborading but i can see myself getting into a watersport way more. a huge storm came through this way last week and there were some huge waves. shit i couldn't even imagine trying to swim in let alone surf.

    yeah but once you get a board and a wetsuit theres not much more to pay for right? its not like you have to pay to use the ocean......yet.
    are used board a good bet for a rookie?

    WHAT!!! who said that shit....

    custom board....$400 dollars (1 to 3 in a year depending on surf)
    wetsuit....$250-350
    boots....$25-$50
    gloves....dito
    hood....$20-$35
    nylon shirt....$40-60
    board shorts....$50-$60
    leashes...$25-30 (at least 3 to 4 a year)
    countless hours of driving....a good $500 a year

    it may not be as expensive as snowboarding but please believe its not cheap unless your riding a tank in kmart shorts for 2 months of the year

    skater nerds can make fun of it all they want...id love to see those dorks get out to the bar in 8 to 10 foot beach break

    Yup surfing is some fun shit. Unfortunately I haven't been out in about 2 yrs. What kind of board do y'all have. I have a 6'3" channel islands. I was thinking of getting a long board but then I remembered I haven't surfed in 2 yrs so why spend the money.

    just checked the surf report: 3-4 ft, i can tell its windy as fuck by lookin outside but it calms down once in a while, the water temp is 61 deg F, and there are about 20 guys out.... id say it would be a damn good day if it wasnt so widny. maybe this evening will be better. i think im gonna go for a quick sesh right now though....

    peace
