bummed out - I am gonna risk sounding like a real dick saying this but I gotta get it off my chest. I was really bummed out last time I surfed here and it because a boatload of my countrymen were acting like kooks. I am from Canada and have been surfing for 12+years,living in San Diego, Central America, Mexico, Europe etc.
I was out on a pretty decent day and all the locals were having fun and so was I until about four carloads of Canadians showed up. They were loud and obnoxious,surfing like total kooks and were jockeying all through the lineup like they were in a contest. This shit was seriously embarrassing. Up until then I had been having a friendly conversation with some of the locals and trading waves. On my way out I wanted to hide my license plate cause I was so embarrassed. I don't blame the locals if they get burned out on tourists, I was seriously burned out myself. Lame.
