  • “Major Pain”

    Although I have spoken to Nigerians regarding The Surf, I have never read an article (“ANARCHY AND A – FRAMES”), which actually depicted Surfers taking advantage of Waves. That all changed with the February 2012 issue of SURFER Magazine.

    Nigeria is being “Raped” of its Oil, by unscrupulous Outsiders. Sadly, I suspect after that article, it will also be “Raped” of its once Pristine Beaches.

    There is also an interesting article regarding Sharks entitled , ‘THE RED TRIANGLE.’ Although discussing Monterey to Bodega Bay, that article reminded me of “My Idiot Surfing Days,” when I used to Surf 30 Miles of Restricted Beach at Vandenberg Air Force Base. Since I still continue to “Break – The – Rules,“ by Surfing Alone, after seeing a School of Sharks below me during the Mid 1990’s, I have never returned. (In October 2010, A Surfer was Killed by A Shark close to where I saw that School.)

    (On “A Lighter Note”):

    LMBO: “Jeff, I heard Ayn Rand hopped Karl Marx at Pipeline. Go Figure.” ~ SURFER Magazine (February 2012, Response to Letters to the Editor)

    Now THAT was hilarious. I detest Ayn Rand and The Idiot Libertarians (pretending to be Republicans), who worship that Dead Wench. Thanks for the “Comic Relief.” I did radio shows for years chastising The Memory of that Deceased, Hardcore Atheist, Self – Absorbed, Sex Addict, And California Serial Rapist – Murderer Edward Hickman – Worshipping Ayn Rand.

    Even MORE Hilarious; Imagine that Reader‘s response to “HIGHWAY TO HELSINKI (Socialized education, fun surf, and close proximity to golden – haired Scandinavians?)”

    Lagos doesn’t have any ‘pristine’ beaches unfortunately. all polluted with sewage and decomposing food, human/animal flesh esp TB; you see all those houses around there, the locals use the bay as their bathtub, toilet, dishwasher, washing machine, dustbin the works.

    What is the name of the song featured in the vid?
