What the fuck! - I surf the spot you have to leave your car at the top of and have done since dot! I drive a load of different cars and if any of them get damaged at one of my favourite breaks I would probably get me old trusty shotgun and take pot shots from the beach!Paignton rules! thats why half of its locals (me too) try and winter in bali or sri lanka every year or 2. Dont knock it.

Really guys! - Lets start by saying what a load of **** do we really want to fight over the waves we rarely get as for localism it doesnt need to be resolved by violence. Localism is a horrible thing and it dont need to be introduced here.
