You don't have to own a surfboard to enter here. Just have to be monossilabic, talk about trips to the beach, say some slangs, talk about girls in bikinis, parties where we get drunk and high, surfclothes, etc. The surfer way of life/ lifestyle :cool:
Join the club. Everyone is welcome, just pay attention to the rules above. :)

you should try with a longboard, it's easier for who is starting now.
I've been to the beach last week, in Southern Brazil, and now is winter. The only people at the sea were surfers (with long john). I couldn't stand inside the water for more than 3 minutes, it was too freezing :(

Working a little project about Puerto Rico, it says in Wikipedia:Rincón (ring-KON) is a municipality of Puerto Rico founded in 1771 by Luis de Añasco. It is located in the Western Coastal Valley, west of Añasco and Aguada. Rincón is spread over 8 wards and Rincón Pueblo (The downtown area and the administrative center of the city).

Rincón has a population of about 17,000 and is the third richest municipality only after Carolina and San Juan. It is home to many of the best surfing beaches in Puerto Rico, including Domes, Marias, Tres Palmas, Sandy Beach, Pools Beach, and Rincon Town Beach Plaza.

I guess it's genetics, he probably spent alot of time inside salty water and under the sun, but then his life style can be considered healthy when it comes to physical activities; others aspects, such as feed behaviour and drug abuse, vary a lot among the surfers :p

Unbelievable stage in WCT in Tahiti with the best conditions of the decade. Slater won it and the young French genius Jeremy Flores scored a 20! Only the third 20/20 of the history (Slater and Irons are the two others).
