Did you think the line-ups were crowded last summer?

This forum is for SURF topics such as localism and rants that are usually negative in nature. If you're a baby, complainer, or generally think you're right and everyone else is wrong this is the place for you. PLEASE NOTE, all forum rules still apply, but just a little more liberally enforced. Registration is required.

How do you feel about the crowds in the summer time?

What are you talking about, Oregon has no surf!!!

why don't you just fill a barrel full of razor blades, jump in, and roll down a long hill. The results should be about the same.

How about a barb wire leash to complete the look?

not many newbies are out at sunrise. there are still ways to escape the crowds. get up before the wind turns onshore and you'll find some.

Why you gotta be like that Welshy.
None of these posters know about dawn patrol do you all?
Wake up, crispy breeze, empty line up. What?

Come on, i've heard of all kinds of stuff on this board from posting pictures of spots to travel advise but not dawn patrol.
Now we've exposed to much.

On a serious note, I just purchased some H2O proof night vision goggles.

I'll be catching all my taysty waves while you all are catching zzzzzzz.

i'll give then 2 or 3 uses tops before the "waterproofing" fails..
hopefully they are waterproof and not "water-resistant" which means absolutely nothing.

I hope they are cheap cuz they will be on the bottom before long. I bit it on a wave the other day and it litterally ripped the glove off my left hand..

It wasn't "on that serious of a note."
I was joking.
I would never spend my hard and even no so hard earned money on a pair of so called water proof night vision goggles.
It's much cheaper to kick, punch, scream and bite kooks in the lineup all summer.

Or just surf breaks kooks don't know about.
Holly chit, I think I just solved everybody's summertime crowd issue.

or you could get a big monster 50,000,000 candle power light and strap it to the front of a 12' board with a deisel generator on the back. That should bring the soul back to surfing.

Crowds are a bring down, but I like to see my bros in the lineup even if it's crowded.

hell yea, it was fun paddling out a couple weekends ago and knowing a bunch of people on the peak including Nasty. I proceeded to yell over to Pra, "hey look, its NASTY!" I got some confused looks.

crowded? there are only maybe a dozen people out of maybe 60 guys out that can actually surf in the most popular of places on the north coast. if you can surf, you will have as much waves as you damn well please, that is my experience anyways. living in north LA county now for a few months( hate it with the exception of nice weather and good surf), 3 very well known right hand pointbreaks are a short drive for me. there are always 60 people in the water and 90% can surf so there should be no bitc%ing about how crowded it gets up there. I'll be back for a week during the 4th of july weekend and i cant wait to take off on as much waves as my arm can handle.
say it!
