Atmosphere

its crowed all the time and the mal riders go mental at everyone! its really sad to see three or more mals drop in on each other and chuck mentals, all are like 200 years old but they carry on like there better then kelly slater and gonna turn pro next week. most locals are cool but everyone needs to kick back and take your turn. so you get one good one a hour, isn't that better then acting like a greedy, ancient, mal riding fuckwit and spoiling the country laidback vibe for everyone? think about it

General

ghanaiian. - With regards to all this bullshit tribalism about what length board you ride-man, some of you people really evolve a little and perhaps some anger management therapy wouldn't go astray either. With half the world starving who really gives a toss whether you have more or less fibreglass(or whatever material) under your feet( or your guts or arse) whilst you are on a wave. We should all be grateful we are able to go surfing and leave it at that. Live and let live and for god sake find something that really is important to whine about.
