Scared silly - Yesterday, there were good waves marina state beach. I was surfing about half a mile south of the parking lot when I saw someone running out of the dunes yelling. I thought it was a crazy bum, but when I turned back around I saw this guy snatch a softboard from behind a pile of driftwood, still yelling. He didn't even have a wetsuit but he just paddled straight up to me screaming on this ugly foamie. He pulled a big knife out of this slot carved in his board and started swinging it at me!! I tried to get away but the guy was quick and he grabbed me by the leg and screamed at me to leave now or the rest of the crew was gonna come finish me! He looks kinda like a bum, but he was wearing like 10 gold medalions Mr.T style. He followed me all the way to the beach all I could hear were these gold chains clinking behind me. Then he just sprinted back into the dunes. I'm not goin back to marina anytime soon.

Marina hellman - Yesterday I parked in the Marina lot and saw the guy who got attacked by the shark! He came up to me and said, "Hey fella, I'm gonna twist off your head and spike it onto the floors of a nightmare you can't even imagine, I will gasp at you inside the 6 sided winds of fire, unless you move from this area, far and fast, NOW!" Then he took his ice cream cone and threw it at my windshield! B E W A R E!
