ATTENTION: Burnedout Ratty brats - If ur sandbars have gotten any better since the early '80s, which were the last times we've surfed there (it was NEVER crowded) - then more power to ya - ur boys can keep it. Are u all listening? I SAID KEEP IT!!

Lame ass Native - LA Native is nothing more than a transplant from Ohio. Fall, Winter and Spring are the windows at the AVE's and Burnouts. I surfed Rat's Beach Sunday, big and only a handful of people. It was extremey well shaped and packed a punch. Yeah, I guess 2 foot waves suck here, but its been pretty damn good this past two months. Where the fuck are you LA Native? Home, with the remote, watching Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood.

LA Native scam artist - Yo Kook La NAtive, where were you yesterday? October 14th, 2009, Huh? With your boyfriend. Topaz Jetty, Avenue A down to I were epic. Hugh, full blown Winter Barrells. You could not handle that because you still hang with (your boys). Too bad you missed it. Only a handlful of rippers out in classic South Bay conditions, and it was hugh. did I mention that big and perfect. Stay at home LA Wanabe.
