That's not a very nice way to reply to a fellow reptilian Dinosorearse.

i dunno about you guys but im pretty sure the idea is to get in the pit and not pose infront of it.. this is the sad state of bbing- v-cut shirts, 16" cut off jeans, shoes that would be more suited to a jester and posing for myspace shots instead of getting a decent wave.. TISK! maybe you dick heads that whail on us are onto something :?

thanks dino, yeah not too bad- ive got no feeling below the cap and my leg feeling is a bit patchy but all in all pretty good. worst bit was missing the majority of that clean last summer swell we had. ive surfed the spot twice since it healed but thankfully hasnt messed with my confidence
