Want to know the appropriate conversational starter when you're floating in the lineup tween sets?
Lulls are a helluva time. In the oceanic expanse, that cool jewelled room, you float shoulder to shoulder with dozens of like-minded souls, mostly, in silence. What a priceless time to engage your fellow surf patrons! But what kinda conversation is appropriate? Read below…
YES: The effect a change in tide will have on the bank, the nature of the swell (long interval, short interval), the difference of temperature between water and air (either great or small), the overall vibe of the crowd and the performance qualities of the surfboard you're riding and whether or not a different fin template may've worked better.
NO: How your new suit makes your ass look "perfectly round, like melon!" Discourse on the factual mistakes in Behind the Candelabra and how Liberace was the greatest cultural ambassador of our time and the sartorial difference tween Arab and Jew.
MAYBE: Throw out the last time you surfed Hawaii, Indonesia, Mex. But easy on the exaggeration unless thy's last name is Smith or Andino.
