Agreed Monkey Spanner . . . do we really need political and nationalistic comments on a surfing site? Enjoy life - go surf : )

This is one of those clever optical illusion photos - like the old "hold the sun in your palm" classic. That's actually a 2 inch high midget jumping up and down on that brick in the foreground and a carefully positioned camera.

You cant call them German Sheppard's any more that why I used Alsatian, its the new improved Politically Correct version (dont want to upset the P C brigade, they will give you a minus) I'm off now to get films of Steven Spielberg banned, they all seem to have a theme, that Indiana Jones what a racist, then its Hell boy don't get me started with faulty towers, lest we forget.

Not wanting a German constantly slagging of your country or Wales, Ireland or the USA does not mean your a member of the BNP. This guy comes on here with a new profile every time he is banned for anti British comments, my comments purpose was so the real bigots in this country, don't jump on the anti American campaign, as until know, he always posts with the stars and stripes as his flag and always gets someone to bite with anti American rubbish, he's now changed it to his own country, so if they want to bite it is in the right direction. If you cant figure out what my comments intentions were, not my loss. If you also think I am being out of order, for posting a comment about a German with an anti-British agenda, that your prerogative. Myself I am not so disillusioned to believe there are not fractions, would not even be surprised if its the cool Teenage rebel statement to support the fore-mentioned political parties active in the 1940's within Germany, as you cannot deny their achievements, however horrific. That, to the PC brigade is not pro Nazi before you jump on your band wagons, I believe in Evolution, I don't believe in race hate, I like to think my conception of migration of the human race is sufficient to realize we are all the same, actually joined in this instance. Ill turn a blind eye to a Labrador barking at an Alsatian, they don't know about chromosomes, we as a race should know better. I will however react to someone displaying signs of race hate themselves, whether that Ireland, Wales, Scotland or America as this guy targets. So feel free to hate PC brigade.

Nice to hear from our German, also without the balls to use his correct country or origin. I suppose there has been a long history of Germans following people without balls both physically and metaphorically speaking. Perhaps if these people grew a comedy Chaplin mustache you might like or even follow them if you indeed had the balls. Ps see that concrete structure on the shore line that was a pill box, used to shoot down your luftwaffe, makes you feel proud to be British, and like any good British proud of the reasons that a Nazi like you does not like us.
