HERE FOR MY TAKE.
As always, it depends on who you ask. I'd say it is. Simply because I've been stuck here and have witnessed these multiple swells first hand.
Not since the WINTER of 05 have we had so many good swells. It's been good people. Good enough to stick around and pass on some tropical locale? Hell no. Slipping into a pair of trunks and rash guard sure beats the hell out of clamoring into a 6mil suit any day.
However, if you can't afford to travel, or, you need to stick around for any number of reasons, well, this is the winter to do it. If you stayed home this winter... You scored.
A funny thing happened to me on Saturday as I was paddling back out at the Wall. A dam Seagull almost hit me. It's true. The dam squawker was hit by a gust of wind and it came spiraling out of control and almost hit me in the face. In fact, I sat up on my board and yelled at it. I know I know. That was stupid. I know the dam thing couldn't hear me, and if it did, it wouldn't know why I was yelling at it. Or maybe it did. Who the hell knows.
But it got me thinking.
Has anyone out there ever been hit by a Seagull? I'm not talking about last summer, when your girlfriend was laying on the beach fighting off the gulls who were trying to steal your Cheez-its and it nipped at her. I'm talking about a midair collision in the water. Like what almost happened to me on Saturday. That ever happen to any of you? I mean, that bird dam near poked my eye out! Can you imagine? Talk about freak accidents.
I might have to think about some kind of a shield that Hockey Players and some Football players wear. GULL PROTECT SHIELD. Keeping Gulls and Gull Shit Out Of Your Face.
better not see this in some New Ad in some surf rag next month. Unless
you're an investor. Then call me.
I had another almost embarrassing moment this week after surfing. I could NOT get out of my wetsuit. It's sad but true. I was stuck in that thing, like a trapped wild animal. If my kids weren't around to help me peel it off, I might still be in the dam thing. Don't get me wrong here.
The suit is awesome. I mean it.
It keeps me warmer than any other suit I've ever owned. And the flexibility is so less restricting that it does not feel like a winter suit. I just have a hard time getting in and out of it. Crawling in and out of that tiny hole (I know it stretches) uses up so much energy that I'm dam near exhausted after I get out of it.
the SURF GEL guys make a wetsuit lubricant that can assist the
dweebs and dorks like me to get in and out of these things? Look, this
is nothing new. I've been struggling with this Winter problem ever since
I went in through the neck hole a few years back. There's gotta be an
OK I'm going to do something here that I don't normally do. I'm going to ask all the registered Hampton Voters to PLEASE Cast a vote For CHRIS NEVINS on February 5th at the Marston School to be a State Rep. Why? Well, Chris Nevins is a friend of mine. He's a really good guy. I mean that. I like to think that, one of my finer attributes is: To be a Good Judge of Character.
Chris has character. Plain and simple. He's a good man.
he's willing to reach across the aisle, and help out Democrats, Republicans
and Independents. He's going to stop the out of control State spending
and he's going to fight to save you money and stem off the potential Sales
and Income Tax.
