He obviously didn't read the sign, fell off the end of the bridge and snapped his board .

After much debating, Larry took both his shortbaord and gun to the beach, upon arrival he read the sign,saw the red flag flying and thought 'Not today Larry,...don't want to damage these bad boys'.

...well, at least it'll fit in the car a bit easier now. As for JP's comment... actually it was pretty funny, we do use a lot of L's. Nothing wrong with with a bit of cross-border banter as long as it's all good natured. On a slightly separate (yet still L hogging) note, i was reading the stormrider guide and noticed there's a Llandudno in South Africa. Any welsh connection or do we just share a passion for spitting when we talk? (that is, of course, assuming they were pronounced the same way)

There are two issues in this thread. Got a problem with authority and/or lifeguards having authority. Surf at a beach without lifeguards. Simple. Only one restriction on surfers here by lifeguards..You have to wear a leash so your loose board doesn't accidentally hit bathers. Many lifeguards are unsung heroes in my book...willing to risk their lives for strangers in trouble. One of ours just recently got a National award for bravery trying to save a shark attack victim half a kilometer out at sea...on a paddleboard! He himself had been a shark attack victim once. THAT took balls! Lifeguards are by necessity, obviously, watermen. Many over here are also surfers...and are often in the lineup with us when they're not on duty...Over here they are constantly saving naive and idiotic(and even sometimes rude & unappreciative)bathers, tourists & residents, from themselves and their stupid decisions...and failures to recognize potential dangers. They also have to remind sometimes drunken beach slobs to pick up their own trash and dog owners to walk their dogs outside the 'guarded' areas...without the authority to actually issue fines. It IS amazing how suddenly cooperative most assholes become when the 'real' authorities...ie. law enforcement deputies...end up being called in...but it is a waste of time and money to have to do that...Regarding female commenting: You seem like an intelligent guy Archie(I will NOT call you Arsey!)...But you seem kinda misogynistic and humor-impaired...and maybe have anger management issues. Women are FUN. And they wanna have fun...We should be encouraging the few women that are willing to banter with us on this website to stay here and keep giving us their takes on things...and us...too. Sure they're equals 'now'(you sound kinda grudging about that)...but they're also different. Adjust yourself accordingly my friend...please.

Actually Archie you got lucky. When you made that reply to Mel, I had the urge to dive under my desk and take cover. I've seen Mel chew up and spit out people like you. She must have been feeling tired that day.

Two countries separated by a common language. "Hard" over here =/= "Hard" over there. Like "Shag" over here is a rug. "Shag" over there is something you do on a rug. Mel, you've been brilliant.

archibald gruntfuttock Feb 22, 2011 Rating: -1

well thats intelligent. could you please explain how, from what i've written did you deduce that I was being 'hard'.

tjo's avatar

tjo Feb 21, 2011 Rating: 2

I thought a simple "that's what she said" after Mel's "hard" comment was all that was needed. You proved me wrong, being a dick head should be added to the bill of rights, but for the record, she nailed you tuff guy, you're pretty hard!

archibald gruntfuttock's avatar

archibald gruntfuttock Feb 21, 2011 Rating: -5

exactly. that was my point. as for all you jerks who jump to the defence of female commentors at every opportunity, all I can say is they wanted equality they got it. women can be dick heads too or are they not that 'equal'. and anyway she started it. ner-ner-na-ner-ner.

archibald gruntfuttock's avatar

archibald gruntfuttock Feb 18, 2011 Rating: -6

that may be the case Mr. baboon. but tell it to the lifeguards. I know for a fact that in certain areas, the beach patrols will call the police if surfers ignore red warning flags. which is the point I was trying to make initially. ie before somebody accused me of being 'hard'. lifeguards generally act way over their power. just wait until they become 'accredited' as local authority employees, they will then have the 'authority' to FINE you for disobeying. needles to say this has to be stopped.
