  • I saw something going on yesterday, later John told me a guy got sucked out & got lost in the rip. RIP Mr.

    This morning the news said something about beach safety tips that can save you in the water so I watched it with hopes. Unfortunately they didnt say anything except Life jackets for kids are no good in the ocean becuase it makes them rely on it instead of swimming. Then they jut said that the majority of drowning victoms were children unwatched by their parents which is true but then he went on to say that its not always safe to rely on the lifeguards.

    It wasnt very infromative at all. sad really. They just dont know.

  • I saw it on the News last night but they didn't say exactly where.  Was it anywhere near NS3?  From the photos it seemed like it was a lot more west.

    Sharkbait did what?!??!?  I want to hear more.  You are the man Pete.

  • yeah whats this?  pete? Rock on bro. There was alotta kooks & newbees out trying to surf so bad. Poeple couldnt get out & I cant imagine many of them having enugh experience to get back in if they were lucky enough to get out. uhg, Its sad really. I heard to newbs arguing becuase 1 guy tried  & couldnt get out, so the other newb (who was sharing the brand new china board) was putting on a 3/2 & saying, "Dude whats the big deal ya jsut swim out there & swim threw the waves, how hard can it be?" His friend said, "yeah we ll its really hard, I couldnt hold the board." his friend just said, "your such a fuqin puzzy! gimme that!"  from there he ran out only to recieve a beating for about 25 minutes, setting himself up in the WRONG place over & over again. It was rediculas, I bummed a smoke off the other guy who was now smiling at his loud mouth buddy who was getting railed so I told him listen if you guys are new to surfing, yall shouldnt be out in this, Its rough & you could drown. He just said "Really? Its that bad in NY?" sure enough Jimmy says hey someone just drowned."

    People are just so clueless. They think becuase they saw on TV or read in a paper that theres surfing here, that they can just go buy a board & jump on a wave. RIP drowned guy.

  • i guess it was swimmer caught in a rip.  made it out to the lineup and held onto a shortboarder's board for dear life.  the shortboarder was about to ditch his board and let the guy paddle in, but the dude was so panicked he couldn't do anything except hold onto the board.  a longboarder tried to get involved but the dude was a bit kooky so wasn't much help.  pete got involved, forced the guy to grab his CI Fish, and basically paddled alongside him all the way to shore.  they had a couple gnarly moments on the inside, getting tumbled around.  BB said the worst part was when he noticed the guy was wearing socks.  really bugged him...

    anyway, when the guy made it to shore, he collapsed on the beach.  no thanks. no nothing. 

    my husband rocks.

  • the guy was on the beach laying face down like he was praying for about an hour afterwards.

    for some reason it caught me as funny when Pete screams at the guy from across the lineup, "PADDLE IN OR YOU WILL DIE!" the guys like "I CAN'T DO IT".  finally, Pete got sick of it and just muscled him in. 
    You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

  • the guy was really wearing socks?
    I knew I would never be hard core. So I tried to be soft core. Instead, Iím just an apple core.

  • The actual drowning happened on 120th.  Guy went in and didn't come out.  The wife and friend all sit a couple of blocks west of there and that is all I have now.
