By ps I surf here a lot and have yet to see locals , 21-06-2005

Bet I know who wrote that! - Let me guess.... you're a Maori, have little to no education, ahve an IQ of 60 or less, live off the dohl... ie out tax money, have a beaten up old board and a torn wetsuit, and are not a very good surfer. Right?
