Re: Just general surfing stuff

the urban drinking man’s ones (so many unknowable hierarchies! So alarming for the wide eyed colonial boy!) hmmmmm, not really. I think the average Brit vastly overestimates how much of a fcuk other nations care about any vestigial remnants of the class system. certainly wide eyed colonial boys any...
