Rainbro Speedo Enthusiast - Yes, I do happen have a tip or two for you on the matter of thong wedgeys. First off you want to buy a bottle of olive oil and a good sturdy roll of electrical tape and if you're really nuts a spool of copper wire. I leave the the thinking up to you big boy.

Capas - Carp owns this break. Santa Barbarans are by no means locals. I learned my lesson the hard way. WC Tom

rincon shmincon - Yeah bros, I pretty much dominate the line up at the lovely lady we locs refer to as refugio. Oh, is this about rincon, sorry. P.S. Does anyone have tips on how not to get thong wedgy while frolicking in the shorebreak ? Thanks .
