    Saturday I went down to Trestles, to surf the Cottons/Barbedwires area. I got there as the tide was going down. The...

    I would think so, with school being back.

    I went to UCSB, where I learned to surf like any good kook who grew up landlocked. UCSB has a huge surfing population, lots of people who grow up surfing...

    There is something deeply wrong with you. I don't really care about this topic, but you are a pathetic excuse for a man if you wish a dog dead. Man is probably not the correct term in this case.
