Longboard.net Forum - Since 1997

gear up...we're throwing an all longboarding contest... free tacos from surf taco, and an afterparty nearby TBA. seaside heights, nj.


and yes some might say paranoid. But I have really been on this story for months now ... the New Yorker had a long long medical article on this thing. It is not at all pretty. In the below I am referencing Topanga because there are Mallards in this ravine that empties into the ocean. Ravine is not the right word. But I grew up on this coast .. my whole life .. and I have been studying the birds ever since I read the New Yorker article ... I think there are already less. And birds do not die in the open. They disappear. Maybe they sink into the ocean .. I don't know .. but this is not the stupidest suggestion .. first the vitamin C to bolster your respiratory .. and second ... cloth or gauze wrap around your mouth (I know it will get wet .. but it will still filter) while you are out there. I would take 3 capsules of the 1000 mg C. I take more. I stayed down there easily 3 hours on Monday and I made my way all the way south that I could from the beach right in front of the ravine (or whatever you want to call that polluted body of water with the Mallards in it and that other type of bird - Egrit.) And I really really studied the birds ... and I am sure there were alot less. Plus they have all been in funny little bunches and quite a few of them just sitting. In fact one came really close to me. I think they sense that about 5 billion other birds on the planet have all been exterminated within the last months.

Anyway I have already read that Maine is starting to gear up. And now this article below says Alaska is. And they specifically mention Mallards. I don't think they have any idea what birds can get it because I have read that already it has jumped into pigs and cats in China. EXPOSURE to the birds .. their droppings .. their feathers .. their whiff .. who knows .. is what will kill you. The percentage is still above 50 that have died.

To me it is ludicrous that the birds might stop off in Alaska on their way down. Well maybe so .. but...
Check this out. If the link doesn't work cut and past into Google and it will list the "Try This Link" to get you to it.

This "60's" board was way ahead of its time!

I got my brand spanking new hunt noserider ! the heavyweight is possibly one of the best board i ever ridden... pinched rails but not too much, super responsive out of the bottom turn and very solid while noseriding...
it's also really fast down the line ...
i highly recommend you guys to try one out if you have the oportunity...
My color and tiger stripes design came out flawless... i love the vintage feel of it... And gregg was very pleasant and communicative thru out the whole process...

How are you fellow east coasters dealing with this flat spell? I haven't surfed in about 3 weeks and I am starting to get cabin fever. I am sick of projects around the house and Home Depot is cutting into my surfboard funds. When will this end...?

For anyone not sharing in my pain, check out http://www.joemac.net/SurfCamPage/SurfCameraPage.html Lake Atlantic doesn't get much flatter than that.:X:X
So I won a Cooperfish Nose Devil on ebay and its in San Diego and Im up north near San Jose. Im wondering if the good folks of this BB might be able to help a brother out with getting it from Encinidas to somewhere within a few hours drive of me. San Lois Obisbo would be ideal but Id drive as far south as Santa Barbara or Ventura if thats what it takes. Im open to any and all suggestions(regarding this undertaking) and am just trying to avoid making the 8 hr drive to get it. The seller says he would drive it up to LA so I fugure thats a start. Ill cover gas, buy you a burger, let you have the first ride.... Anyone? Anyone? :)
post a pic of a surf spot, see who can guess its name/location

I'll start.

I don't want to start any rants about civility in the lineup or when someone deserves a pounding or not. It's just that this video struck me as so funny that I wanted to share it with you all. The little kid is my favorite, simply hilarious.
