  • i said it before, i'll say it again, the 'it's over' bs is just an easy way to dismiss almost anything; in this case a complete lack of respect for the area, its breaks and its resident surfers.

    how do you judge what's over, anyway?  i still surf empty perfect waves with my friends at all the known spots and not on an infrequent basis.  i'm happy to squire visitors around too and share the wealth as long as they're good folk.

    maybe we should all stop surfing because surfing as a whole is over?  or shapers should stop shaping because with surftech and imports shaping is over?

    nothing is over until you give up on it.

    fmboros: great words man.  you say it better than i can.  thank you.
    Your missing the point. I said "its over" meaning the secret has been out. Its old news. My comment had nothing to do with Montauk as a quality break, the people who live there and the rich culture of surfing. Like I said in my PM to you I didn't want to discuss this any further because things just get out of hand on these forums and people get lost in type. This being a prime example.

  • We need to bring back that Aussie talking head with the new wave hairdo from the 90's  public access days , who was that guy ????? Those were videos i could wrap my head around . He was a thin guy with blonde hair I believe an word on him? He could teach  our friend a thing or two about hosting his show ... what was that show called again?

    I thought I knew who you were talking about until I got to the thin guy part.  Now I'm gonna have to see if I can remember.   ;)

  • Well I thought about it and realized that even I was skinny in the 90's so maybe my first thought was right.

    Is this the guy you were thinking of?

  • i was gonna comment somethign but realized surfnli has basically summed it up perfectly.

    fact is weather or not the secret is even out the montauk locals probaly deserve more respect then anyone else on the island, they surf the biggest waves and heaviest waves, brave colder winters then us and are a tight knit community that have each others backs probaly  more then any other part of the island as well. that means dont bring a camera out and do a documentary on a day trip, ESPECIALLY if hte montauk locals dont approve (read comments under the videos or go to montauk more then a few tiems and youll realize they dont want or need that kinda brown trout). whenever im out there im sure to bring no more hten 2 others, give the locals any waves they want and i dont talk about where the spot is i surfed.

  • without commercial exploitation you got nothin

    exactly

    how much is this guy getting paid to do these?

    and if he is from HI, why is he a barrel dodger?

    No. He's from Florida. He said he's been to Hawaii and it was "head high and managable".
    He also said something about "leaving his big wave boards in Hawaii".
    That single fin would be an excellent point and shoot barrel rider I reckon(although I admit
    I could probably learn a lot about barrel-riding from you, my friend).

  • supreme that's just the point--see my post to talmai--the secret isn't out; believe you me there are plenty of spots people don't know and don't surf.  i surfed with two friends on the hanna labor day swell this year.  great waves the entire day by ourselves.  that's over?  the logical conclusion is don't put spots that are off the map into videos for mass distribution on the internet.

    your comment has everything to do with it!  you are directly condoning this video by saying montauk is over, so any blow-through wannabe toolbox who can't surf can make a video and post it up and hey, whatever, montauk's over, blow that sh!t up.

    i will say though, i'm over this thread.  you either think that foolish ill considered projects like this are harmful to the culture (what little remains) of surfing or you don't.  over and out.
    You surfed by yourself not because you were at a secret little spot but because the majority of surfers live too far from Montauk and don't want to travel that far to go there. Our current economical situation could play a role in that..I don't know really... However there are also plenty of very good spots that are closer than Montauk. Most of the time people don't leave waves when they are staring some right in the face. I myself am a prime example of that. You know what I mean? All I'm saying is that I don't think his video is going to do as much harm as you think and like I stated before I don't condone the video at all I completely disagree with it whether you think so or not. You and I are on the same side. And I agree with you this is over.
