    what a shitty beach break for all that walking. Im really getting sick of seeing fake images of people standing around looking at shitty waves…

    john your a kook

    john-you have no idea what your talking about, but then again, I guess its hard for someone to see how good the waves can be when there isn’t a Starbucks coffee nearby and a parking lot with all there bros in it.

    You guys are a mini pack of BONEHEADS! You two probably both surf like shit and Chris I can’t imagine you’ve ever had a stamp inside your passport if you even own a passport!

    John is right, just a crappy staged shot showing us 2ft beach slop. If you’re gonna claim you hiked 12 miles and show a staged shot, they’re better be a 10ft right peeling for 300 yards!!!

    another stupid, posed photo with beachbreak closeouts in the background and a stoic-looking surfer on the cliff. great. oh, and it’s a 4-mile hike to this crappy beachbreak, not 12. who are these guys trying to kid? stop faking it, kooks.

    The beachbreak in the photo wasn’t the destination if you really dont know where this is… and its 6 miles.. which means 12 there and back. Its just another photo along the way, what is with all the egginess? They hiked out and surfed, better then sitting behind a computer arguing about how far, how big and how good it is.. Was there ever a comment that said it was epic.. Not to be nostalgic, but maybe it was more about the journey, and less about how epic it was.

    Hans- 2ft slop? Hes at least 300ft above the water before first light.. seems a little hard to judge how good it is.. all i see is white water triangles with channels..
