I love it! - These online forums are great they just make me laugh. Comments like 'if you come up here the locals really won't like it'! Ha Ha...Grow up. Let the surfing do the talking boys. If someones getting more waves than you that's because they're better than you!..Slag me off to your mates when I'm catching all your waves...Don't give a f#*k Ha Ha!
