[DELETE] We have situation over in General--some surfers are trashing on surf kayaking!! <NT> schitthaedt New
I think they have it right in the islands, from what I've read...they (the heavies) consider themselves watermen, not limiting themselves to a 5'6" fish on alternate tuesdays.
I think we would do well to emulate.
The hawaiian surfers surf, use a kayak, an outrigger, spear fish when things have gone flat, kite surf,just paddle about on a board , belly board, body surf, wind surf,
and so on....
....look, it's all about loitering about with water in your ears, OK?
That's what we're talkin' about here bub.
And yes, I longboard, and surf kayak as well. The two disciplines are not mutually self exclusive by any means.
Hugh, a couple of the exceptional boardies here in Savannah have gotten in one of my surf boats, (at different times), and came away with a new appreciation for what it is we do out there....(one of them is no slouch either....a full time karate instructor, and arguably the best longboarder in JAW-juh, was seriously spooked with a short turn), the other up ended and needed rescue....rather badly.
I challenge you to give it a try....try something you can't do....
