[DELETE] We have situation over in General--some surfers are trashing on surf kayaking!! <NT> schitthaedt New
I've surfed for about 17 years. Grew up 2 blocks from the beach. Competed in ESA and NSSA competitions including a trip to the nationals (where I got my ass handed to me). Lived 4 years in Santa Barbara, CA. Trips to Costa Rica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, New Zealand, plus numerous trips all over the east and west coast. I wouldn't stand out at a place like Steamers but I would definitely turn a few heads.
Now I don't live at the beach (though I will again as of October) A few surf trips in the last few years to quench my thirst. But I'm 2 hours from some of the best paddling in the world, so that quenches my thirst for now...
