Jimmy "quit surfing" Slade said...

I like how he missed the wave entirely. Was that you Grrrr?

Asshole.

djjahd said...

i had to watch the video several times to be SURE that the guy at the end wasn't me.... i can do some really odd sh*t when i'm in the water...

Old Kook said...

Funny....I did the same thing as djjahd....trying to make sure that wasn't me.

Perng is a total biscuit.

Old Kook said...

I just want to know how to pronounce her name....

A Bisquit is a good term. Kind of like calling a girl Hot.

pong...like beer pong or ping pong...but she does not liked to be called ping so do not make that mistake.
she is a chinese muffin...mmmm delicious

Anonymous whi says that Perng is pronounced pong is so wrong. Ian pleasae settle this. I say it is said like Pern; with a silent G.

Ian... said...

Pong it is. The "er" is silent...

Anonymous said...

My friend's name is Perng Lee. He pronounces it Pern. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

annoymouse said...

Wow! So helpful. So how do you pronounce Ian? I think it's "Eye"an, you know like Eye of the Tiger. Or Queer "eyes" on a straight guy. You "guys" should leave Ian alone, I fear that with a little persuasion he might just jump ship (if you know what I mean). Kinda follow in Jimmy "I Wish Ian Was Gay" Slade's footsteps. How do you pronounce Derng? Wait, that's a trick question.
HAHA, just having some fun!! Neither Ian or Jim S. are (or have admitted to being) gay as of this time. Anyway....

oh btw, Ian can I ride your log tomorrow?

Asian Persuasion said...

Thanks for the debut IR! That poor guy at the end. Are you guys its not Jimmy Slade choking under pressure??;)

Asian Persuasion said...

There should be a SURE after guys there

grumpy local said...

Sure....

Jimmy was probably choking on something else, somewhere else, that day. Surf wasn't all that good.

The 24th annual Player Haters Ball comes to the blog. So much anonymous animosity, I sense a bit of envy.

exwestcoaster said...

i agree with that anonymous guy on the other video clip. no one is cross stepping or nose riding. you don't have to be hanging five but be up at least on the front third of the board. come to think of it i've only seen a few dudes doing it right at folly, most guys/girls just stand there and jump off at the end. Nat Young said once "if you're shuffling and not cross stepping, you not longboarding" then he went on to say something like he just dismisses the surfer as a kook and if in a contest, scores him very low.

Jimmy "slandered" Slade said...

I was the guy paddling back out near the end of the clip. Not the guy leg kicking and paddling with both arms at the same time.

Just for clarification.

There are plenty of longboarders on Folly who ride with style, cross-step and all that good stuff.

But there are more surfboarders who ride longboards who have no style whatsoever on Folly, too.

sure jimmy....

grumpy local said...

How did I miss this.... Left Coast vanity at it's finest.

It was 1 foot, noone cares...even if you had been out there drop knee turning, walking the board to a hang 10, noone would care. This aint Hollywood.

Are you sure it was Nat Young who said that? I heard Joel Stupor say the same thing in a movie.. (pinching nose for nasal whine sound) "if you're shuffling and not cross stepping, you're not longboarding" then he said "you might as well stay in the parking lot".... 10 minutes later while glorifying himself for riding retro shapes he says...still nasaly mind you, "who cares what you ride or how you ride it just go surf and have fun"...

Which is it lefty? Have fun during random surfs... or is everyday a contest where you must exhibit dominance of the sport and over your peers, knowing there is a peanut gallery of "judges" on the beach?

And didn't Nat Young write a book about getting his ass kicked at the surf? Maybe he should stick to having fun instead of judging everyone in the water.

Jimmy "parkin lot 6 pack" Slade said...

Ian started it.

exwestcoaster said...

Hey grumpy local...dude, if you ain't cross steppin' you ain't longboarding. A longboard needs to be ridden in a certain way with classic style. Not just because you can't catch waves on a shortboard and require three inches or more thickness under you to float into a wave. I take it you're a longboarder?! (if not disregard) It's all about style and soul on that nine foot plus piece of foam. You should always push yourself to get better at what you love. Never be satisied with your current skill level is. I know that some people just have a natural ability to surf great and some don't...and that's okay, but if a person is just average or less, they shouldn't be spouting off like they are the world champ or something. I've seen people run up and down longboards in ankle high crap. It's do-able. But bottom line is...Have fun! PS. don't be so grumpy, the world has too many pissed off people already.

exwestcoaster said...

Now, we are all waiting for the grumpy local's angry sarcastic remarks. Go on... let it out sour puss.

anonymouse said...

Watch it...don't upset Travis...and to keep it on the subject...cross-steppin'...YES...
shufflin'...NO
Unless you're just havin' fun!!! Wooo
hooooo!!!!

grumpy local said...

"A longboard needs to be ridden in a certain way with classic style".... or what, some beans on the beach are gonna point and scoff?

"It's all about style and soul on that nine foot plus piece of foam."... what about the fun of being in the ocean winding down after a days work?

"But bottom line is...Have fun!" .. Uhm, OK Joel, you sure it's not about impressing people on the beach?

"but if a person is just average or less, they shouldn't be spouting off like they are the world champ or something."... Pot meet Kettle!

LOL

Anonymous said...

watch out grump, this guy is obviously an above average surfer. If he's formerly of the "west coast", being better than the rest goes without saying.

exwestcoaster said...

Hey grumps was that all you could come with. LOL

Old Kook said...

Well being an "exwestcoaster" as well....who surfing does suck, however, let me be the first to say to exwestcoaster go the hell back.

I'm with grumps on this one....

I'm absolutely tired of all the people who post about how others should or shouldn't surf "with style" or how the groms here suck (if that's the case, go out there and help them improve instead of bitching about them).

Surfing is about you and the wave and respect for staying out of the way of others when necessary...that's it, period. Improve at your pace and if your happy being out there, then that's all that matters.

Can't cross step, but you come out of the water happy cause you were out there? Then it's all good.

You cross step well? Well then good for you, I'll watch you and appreciate your skill. And if you can't cross step or drop knee, yet, then I'll be the first to hoot for you when you can.

Way too much negativity on this blog lately from a lot of people who'd rather waste their energy on slamming others with seriousness as opposed to just fun jabs at each other.....

It's no wonder people are starting to feel Folly isn't what it used to be.

Anonymous said...

Hey OLD OLD OLD kook...you need to zip it. I'm with that x west coaster. It is always about the old getting down on the young. And he wasn't disrespecting anyone. I sure didn't pick up on that. Gramps or grumps just picks out passages from other peoples comments and twists it around to make everyone else sound insulting. Gramps never seems to have any original comments, just attacks on anyone not from SC or doesn't share his exact opinion. I'm a local and I sometimes understand how and why outsiders think we are dumb hicks.

my name brings anger so i dare not say it said...

"Way too much negativity on this blog lately from a lot of people who'd rather waste their energy on slamming others with seriousness as opposed to just fun jabs at each other....."

totally agree old kook...

Old Kook said...

If you've ever read anything else I've written, you know I don't play the "dumb hick" card and have certainly railed against those who do....

I'm just tired of all the disrespect that's going on, simple as that.

But, with that in mind....I myself am guilty of attacking exwestcoaster by telling him to go back....so there you go, it shows how easily you can be sucked into it.

So to exwestcoaster I do apologize.

Shut up Bob you pillow biter.

grumpy local said...

Reminds me of a joke...

anonymouse said...

it's not me Bob...remember, always check for the "e". Just some other hater I guess.

Anonymous said...

shut the fuck up with your proper style bs and quit quoting other surfers.cross-stepping is for girls but who cares what others think.let your surfing do the talking when you school people on style,not your keyboard .
first time I ever agreed with grumpass.

grumpy local said...

Yea, what he said.....

Hey Leftcoaster, there is a contest coming up soon, The Governors Cup (how stupid is that name?)..anyway, it would be a good time to show everyone how it's done properly in front of a panel of judges...since you've "only seen a few dudes doing it right at folly," you should be a shoe-in for the trophy.

And the one anonymous really needs to put a whaaaaaandaid on his vagina... the old getting down on the young...lol

djjahd said...

you cant possibly learn anything about style surfing with your head up your ass. you homo's.... stop giving people shit about their surfing ... i'm sure you sucked tits at one time.... you can surf with anyone.... help them or learn from them...., or maybe just go back to Ohio

anonymoose said...

Wow, everyone is really mad about surfing with style and technique. Sounds like a lot of frustration and anger when realizing limited skill levels. Must have really hit close to home and bruised some egos?!

Mad Mike said...

Dude, it was 1 foot wind chop. Nothing to get an ego over to begin with.

Noone cares how hard or stylishly you rip it.

Anonymous said...

Hey "dee jay jade", stop hating on OHIO. Land of honey, babe. Smoke stack sky lines with hills and rivers. Home of really cool people, transplants to the coast that might be the next champ. Pat O'Connel comes from Chicago Ill-anoys. Kiss a midwesterner...yarp!

Anonymous said...

"a shoe-in"

LOL

Old Kook said...

Actually, let's get back to the real facts here on this paticular post.

Perng is a biscuit.

da man (not my real name) said...

Perng is an Asian Mermaid. Hot and exotic...yum. Surfs pretty good too. "hey little girl, I wanna be your boyfriend"...(Ramones)

anonymoose said...

"me love you long time". There, I said it...it had to be said. I know everyone was thinkin' it!

esa guy said...

So what, west coaster and Anonymoose... sounds like yall are seasoned pro's with superior skill levels and are intent on letting everyone know... will yall surf the contest or are you all mouth?

exwestcoaster said...

esa guy. 1. I don't live in SC. I'm in NC. 2. Don't do am contests. 3. When in N.Cali, I surfed in pro contests and did pretty good from time to time. Shortboarding. I did know pro longboarder and I know what I'm talking about...So relax with the "yall" stuff, let your ego heal. Everyone should strive to do better at everything they do, brah! And if you must know, I got older with a family and a job transfer sent me over here several years ago. NC has some nice waves, esp. OBX.

true southerner said...

it's "y'all" not "yall" - you know, as in "you all"

if you're gonna live in the south, you gotta get it right!

djjahd said...

im tryin to find a place to stay in OBX now.... got a 3 day trip planned but havin a lot of difficulty in price because im a cheap bastard and my wife will not stay in a "dude" type of hole in the wall.....

grumpy local said...

Wingnut doesn't count as a pro longboarder.

Stinky Pinky said...

Im not sure about the biscuit comment. It kindof makes her sound like a fat troll or whatever. I like to think of her more as sweet and sour chicken or pork fried rice.

Like the asian girl on Full Metal Jacket said:

"Ah you big soldier man, me so horny."

"me no like black man. Too boo koo (big)"

Black man said:

" I gotta rare specimen of pure alabama black snake and it aint too god d@mn boo kuu."
