This is the worst kind of news. Rich was a very good dude. I feel it worst for his wife who just overcame cancer herself. And for his dog Rocky (?). Rich was always out with his dog running him on his bike or skater.

I bought a couple of waves for Rich over the last two days.

I had no idea, I don't check this site very often, Im very sorry to hear this news, Rich was a great guy, So sorry to learn of this. Rich took me to Lido for some waves right after I started surfing (which is not too long ago). This breaks my heart.

i've been watching that. it seems dangerous for her - so shallow. i'm wondering if her tracker is off?

She's been as shallow before (Charleston last year) - she probably just likes its…. maybe she was following someone on a paddle board ;)

nice waders

thats my old board.. bullet proof glass job...

 ;D  this board must have made the rounds… Im aware of two other owners as well


6.1 x 21.65 x 3.0


board is in Rockaway

I call that the NS3 shutdown.

you must be speaking from experience... ::)

Maybe saltwater really does, in fact, rot the brain…

"The new boardwalk will rival the best in the world when it comes to withstanding the effects of climate change"… yeah, sure it will, but that doesn't mean anything when the majority of the flooding actually comes from the bay. When living on a sandbar, a fact of life is sooner or later its gonna flood… its still a sandbar.

damn, gonna be hard to resurrect the "circle jerk of snark" this got started with… I'm sure someone can get it back on track

Do we not live in a capitalist economy? Why do surfers get outraged by people asking high prices. If you don't want it don't buy it. No need for righteous indignation, the board will eventually find it's true price.

Save your outrage for the banks and investors that are buying up big swaths of NYC housing and pumping up housing prices.

But then this wouldn't be…..

any new news from the meeting last night?

inconvenient and annoying? sure it is,….however, thats the current situation on almost all the other blocks on the peninsula that used to have a boardwalk before Sandy. I love still having the 13 block stretch you live by, and it sucks that the board voted for an accelerated demo,… but I can't seem to get that bent out of shape about it considering that this is the current situation for almost the entire boardwalk.

I can definitely get bent out of shape about having to ride the A train again,… to me its a big price to pay considering the former ferry.

anyone know if the sand dumping is over in Queens, or is there more in store?

Such a knee jerk reaction. Of course every truck and SUV driver is an evil person.  Those studies were meaningless. Everywhere that I've off roaded on a beach, Martha's Vineyard, IBSP, OBX, Central Florida, Costa Rica, California, all I saw were environmentally conscious active fisherman, kayakers, surfers, birders etc. people who love the ocean. The way it's meant to be enjoyed. The not inexpensive permits that we pay for are what enables those few small areas to remain unpaved and uncommercialized. So much better than the usual trash filled paved lots or street parking attracting people who think being at the beach means they need to be within 500 feet from a flush toilet and a Dunkin Donuts, pizza shop and ice cream stand  at all times. I feel bad if you have an Altima or a minivan or much more likely a Prius that can't drive on sand and thusly are unable to partake but that's on you.

I totally agree.
We lost our Toyota FJ in Sandy.  I love my Honda element, but I certainly miss the remote areas we used to go too.
SO much that Im willing to look at proper 4X4s again.

Having driven an FJ I think Sandy did you a favor (assuming you didn't get the hard D from your insurance carrier) get a Jeep Cherokee

preferably a Cherokee with a LIBBA sticker on it, oh, and a "plovers taste like chicken" bumper sticker,… 'cause, you know, that gets funnier and funnier every time I see it
