funny shit to read here! For anybody who dont know: - Adolf Hitler is since 1945 dead - not all germans are nazis anymore - i would say the most of the german people hate nazis - sometimes you can find different ethnic groups in germany, they are not huntet down anymore! cheers! ;-)

I have a couple of german mates down here. actually they are dudes that sit at the same table or row of stools at the pub when I used to go evryday after work as people do down here. one is in his 40s and dosent like ze var being mentioned. the other is in his 80s and says hitler was in the right. we let him (80s dude) waffle on bcs at that age it doesnt really matter bcs soon he will be dead. so I will keep your advice in mind about not mentioning ze var and ze fuerer

You make a fine case there Mantis but I would rather not suck your wienerschnitzel!!!! I am not fully aware of the term surf nazi as being that mainstream,well not in Europe anyway. I'm not sure how the germans would take to the term surf nazi so I would not even consider using it. Anyway take it easy fella. I am all up for hardcore surfing and even enjoyed a session the other day with noone out and it was freezing cold,reportedly the coldest day of the year here. Its a great feeling tearing along one of those frosty waves, making sure to avoid the holddowns is paramount though!!! btw Seinfeld rocks!!!

respect to mantis for wiggling out of that one. and using Sweinfeld as mitigation, naivity I would say. i give you true comedy, Faulty Towers. had an episode called the germans, heed well this advice, around the hermans, NEVER MENTION ZER VAR.

oh and btw, if you want to remove my comment, then who really is the nazi in the german political party sense of 80 years ago. thats oppression, censorship, fascism and co*ck sucking. lick my teetsville

mantis Feb 25, 2009 Rating: 15

I salute you surf nazi. I use the term in the hard-corp sense. it is an old term. surfing in the 80's in so.cal., we used it to describe the relentless dawn patrol dudes that went surfing every morning even in winter at 5:30 am. I think the term came from ventura. It has nothing to do with cooking jews or political believes. one of the most popular episodes of seinfeld voted by the viewers is the soup nazi episode. it had nothing to do with auswitch. the soup guy was hard-corp and would'nt serve elaine. so to sumerize, you can give simple words as much power as you wish. helter skelter was taken by manson during his killing spree yet bono said lets take it back bcs originally it was a beatles song. so open your minds and open your mouths and suck my co*ck

Reminds me of a recent situation here where a German was in Court accused of buggering a cat and had no translator. The judge asked the jury if any of them spoke German. A small drunken looking Glaswegian stood up and approached the acccused. 'Ask him where he was last night' said the Judge. 'Vere ver you der other night' said the translator.

Best surf in the Baltic Sea is the ferry wave in Warnemunde, comes through twice a day in summer... ;) Respect to the cold water patrol.

miraculix's avatar

miraculix Feb 20, 2009 Rating: 72

@fhflipper: I lived in Rostock for one year and agree with you, that the ferrywaves can be the best in the baltic sea! But I have only seen it once glassy with a headhigh barrel, breaking for about 75 meters. Have heard a story about that wave breaking like this but did not believe it. But it is to rare that i consider other spots better...
