Ha ha no Drailed my intentions were good, despite knowing no good deed goes unpunished.

She was at the point post surf lessons where you start to tentatively join the line-up on small days or give it away. Maybe I had incorrectly assumed that though in retrospect from what she'd told me.

I haven't the stomach for surf caddying in the local environment that's for sure.

Reminded me of what my uncle told me, he's a gentle soul who wouldn't say a bad word about anyone, was a good surfer in his time and was part of that Midget generation. Years ago I joked with him about giving me a few pointers and his demeanour froze as if suddenly possessed, he fixed me with a steely eye and said "You can't teach surfing". He didn't mean adult learners but yeah seems he wasn't far off the mark.

I took the TC softie out this morning to avoid the crowds
Dude near me was on this thing the size of a jumbo jet and he was lying way too far back on it. No way he could catch any waves like that and he didn’t.
I thought of giving him some advice but then thought fcuck him,we don’t need any more surfers in the water I hope he gives it up.

Go Lats. You are in the right of it. Surfing should be discouraged generally. Shit thing to do. Takes a long time to learn and you know you could drown and sharks.

Not sure that counts as a negative TMS.

Would you have given some pointers to the person inappropriately positioned on the board if they were visually appealing?

Of particular interest, Josh Cattlin's wipeout reel just before 22 min including one crazy wave.

Are they the same waves that Cranked surfed for ten years and never had a memorable surf?

To be fair, cranked was strung out on smack, hardly in a position to form an accurate opinion.

Nah. I was not focused on surfing at all. "Nothing memorable" was in response to Steve's query re surfing. As I said, I got them all windsurfing - sometimes more 10' plus waves in a single day, (including one 25 footer, and that was fcuking memorable) than I would ever get surfing.

1968 to 1977 (17 to 26), the glory years for drug experimentation. Surfers/hippies were at its centre, travelling in asia and bringing stuff back.

We were lied to about weed and LSD and didn't believe addiction was a thing as there were initially no addicts in our subcultures. The tragedy to come unfolded slowly during those years.

You can't get a physical addiction to LSD, or die from an overdose on it.
Well, you might be able to, but nobody has found the lethal dose yet. It's above 2000 'trips' taken at once, though.

Psychological addiction is a whole 'nother thing.
