Didn't mean to start any arguments here. I lived in England about four years ago. Born and raised there. My comments are simply innocent cracks on the English. I had no intentions of creating an uproar ;).

well i tired the old ghillie but the bullrushes kept giving me the bumms rush! and my mother was with me, she always walks me down to ze beach and stand there sobbing and whimpering with holding a semi-deflated (no!) rubber ring that i used to sit in as a baby Meunchlin. Now i jsut go "ohhh Mummm shadddapppppp" and then rus off into the frothing sea. On this particualr day iwas in the water not very far away and smiling at your beautiful cheeks....

Not even your own mother is close to you my little Muenchkling!!! P.S. I could have sworn there was a little red laser dot from a sniper rifle dancing around me in the water that day, it all makes sense now. Next time get yourself a ghillie suit, I spotted you a mile off in your pink wetsuit hidden in the scrub!

Cant help it my dick feels good. Lighten up sunshine it was a light hearted joke, no need to get all teary now. ps because one south african says something doesnt mean all south africans feel that way, generally. Generally generalisations can be pretty general though, generally.

Before someone claims all British surfers always sit way off on the shoulder, he didn’t go for this one. He was just enjoying the view.

Tie you camera in a condom. Its waterproof to 5m. Says on the packet.

the vanity project Jul 21, 2009 Rating: -1

I guess I can be accused of sitting way off on the shoulder shooting this photo though, but I have my reasons: I don’t have a waterproof camera so when a wave comes over me I have to throw the camera up in the air, duck under the wave and then catch the camera again before it gets wet. As a system it generally works fine until it starts raining, at which point I have to get the brolly out.

nothing wrong with the odd shoulder takeoff if it helps make the wave / good sections and there isnt a pack
