I am lucky. It could be that I am insanely rigid. My wife says that I am the most stubborn person she has ever met.

I was miserable and at some point I was miserable surfing. I never could imagine paddling out and not being happy but I was just that way. I hated my surfboard and I hated not enjoying myself.

Thankfully one recent day, I stumbled out of the water at Ponce and an old buddy approached me. Some of the conversation was him telling me that my board sucked. It was not fun.

Then he began to seriously speak to me about a lot of things and not long afterwards he was carving out the board he envisioned me riding.

Over the past year, I stopped going out in Cocoa Beach. I hated that too! The waves would be blown out and my crap board would make me work to ride the dribblers. But the other day, I saw the pics that Dan posted and I wanted to be back at the streets. So yesterday I went south and was greeted with clean waves that were super fun. My new board handled it all...and even the close outs were fun. I left smiling.

Here is to a summer of fun waves and for the stoke that surfing can give. (Board dependent).

Why am I lucky? Because when things were sour and they really were...I never gave up. Some are not as lucky and they turn a corner and sink even lower. I am also lucky that I had some people that never gave up on me either.

Here is to more waves on the horizon...minus the trench and chop!

Have fun at Ponce, Rick...I guarantee it will be good.

Some crazy foreign looking page pops up now when you type the url in. I also miss the gardening section. I was starting to read a lot of those threads now that I'm getting into planting things around the house.

2ndlight server was hit with a Trojan. Looks like they will have it up shortly but it'll be a while

Maybe they fix their issues... One of the issues was that they used GoDaddy and well..... GoDaddy stinks
