You should add yourself to it. The more the better! Just a warning though, Florida is pretty cluttered (obviously).

I'm in Kanehoe, on the island of Oahu in Hawai'i. It's about 30 minutes from Honolulu on the east side of the island. In May I will be going back to Ventura, California (right above LA) til late October. I spend half the year here and half in SoCal. I was BORN in Newport, Rhode Island

The lovely parched desert of Southern California! :D More specifically, the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Indio, etc.) Average highs in Dec-Febuary: High 60s/Low 70s. Average highs in Jun-August: 110+. :whew: Yet, Riverside County (our county) is the second fastest growing county in the nation! Golf is good here (especially in the winter) if you're a big fan of that.

Gol is pretty damn good out here in Hawai'i too. I'm not a big fan, but I'll play ocasionally with the owner of the club I bartend at. I like to just hit the ball as hard as I possibly can everytime, so teeing off is my favorite part, lol. In fact, I'd personally rather just stay at the driving range the whole time, but I don't really argue when my boss who makes like 20 million a year from all his clubs is asking me to play a round, lol, good chance to shoot the **** and learn "insider" stuff to advance in the business.

The weather is pretty good too. In winter (November to April) it's 60s-high 70s (on average) and summer is 70s-high 80s (on average). Apparently Hawai'i doesn't count spring and fall as seasons, lol.

I try to catch games in San Diego and Denver occasionally, but not many. I was at the SD game that got moved here. I will be seeing a lot more though when I move to Toronto (Buffalo, NYJ, NYG, Detroit-maybe for Thanksgiving!) next year. Once I get out of the brokehouse known as college I will start making trips to Miami as often as possible. :yes:

Edit: Also, no problem with the link. That thing is pretty sweet. Did you zoom out to the world view? Fans all over the place!

What part of Jersey? There is actually some good surf there. They year I graduated (2002) my friends and I took a surf trip at the end of the summer before everyone moved away for college and stuff. We started in Rhode Island (where I was born and lived til I graduated) and went all the way to the Florida keys. We spent a good chunk of time in Jersey though. Belmar, Asbury Park, Point Pleasant, and Atlantic City where all pretty good, but then we went to this place near Atlantic City, I forgot the name but you go over this bridge to get there and it's just a long skinny island, almost like a barrier island. There was a town on it called Surf City which was like the coolest thing I have ever seen, lol. There was AWESOME surf there. We eneded up staying there for two days because it was so good. Then a month after we left I read on www.surfline.com (http://www.surfline.com) that some kid was attacked by a Great White shark there, lol.

Dude I'm there, haha. I go to RI quite often to visit my family and I usually stay for a month of so at the end of the summer (august/september-ish) because that is when hurricane season is at it's best and the surf is like world-class on the east coast. Jersey is only like a 4hr drive from RI, so throw a rager when I'm visiting RI and I'll shoot down there, haha. Party with fellow Phin fans and surfing, pretty sweet deal.

Definately, I love teachin people, it's the best sport ever. I've even got a board I can give ya so you don't gotta spend like $500+ on one, lol. I am sponsored so I get tons of clothes/boards for free, I give more crap away than I keep, haha.

:eek: if you're sponsored, you must be good :chuckle:

sounds like fun, a friend of mine went surfing for the first time last summer and he said it was a blast.

So you can give me lessons if I move to the islands when I finish college then? I am a Geology major, and I am thinking there should be a few jobs there, considering the volcanology going on there.

Well, I've been surfing since I was 4 years old, so I can hold my own, lol. There are different levels of being sponsored though, lol. I'm no Kelly slater that makes millions surfing, but I'm also above the "local shop" sponsor where you get some free stickers and like 2 free shirts a month, lol. I get a certain number of free boards a year (I WISH I was on a touring pro's level cuz they get INSANE amounts of boards) and I get free sunglasses and clothing. I am a "free surfer" meaning I get paid to do photoshoots and video parts (hence me traveling to all sorts of places to surf all the time, most of that isn't on MY dime, it's on my sponsor's dime), sometimes I'll do contests but I'm not a "contest surfer". If I was I would get paid to compete in contests and be required to be in a certain amount a year and get certain results etc etc. Sometimes my sponsors will push for me to attend certain high profile contests but I am not required to tour full time. And when I say contests and tour I don't mean the pro tour (the WCT; World Championship Tour), lol, that is for the top 44 surfers in the world and is crazy hard to make, I mean the WQS (world Qualifying Series), which is MUCH easier to qualify for and is like the minor leagues of professional surfing. They have many more events and the places they go aren't as high quality and the WCT stops. So anyway, back to the original point, between my house here, my house in Cali, and back in RI I have close to 100 boards (that I've accumulated over the years), I could definatelt spare one for ya, haha.

I could definately teach ya, just one problem. The only ACTIVE Volcano is on the big Island, which is the first in the chain, I am on Oahu, which is the 2nd to last island in the chain (not counting the tiny "Forbidden" island). So I'd be glad to teach ya, you (or I) would just be island hopin' for it to happen, lol.

I passed thru there once a few years back during a trip to Vegas. There's only like 50 people there. Nearest cities are Barstow, Victorville, and 29 Parlms and they're all over an hour away. It's mainly a "gas up and stretch your legs" sorta place in the middle of nowhere. I think there's a R&R crossing and a couple of gas stations but that's pretty much it.

I lived in La Quinta for a while. It exploded in the mid eighties to early nineties. Now I can hardly tell the difference between it and the rest of the cities driving into LA. Love the area though.

Yeah there is hardly anybody or anything in Amboy...I was there when it was around 115 degrees out, I have been to 29 Palms, Barstow and Victorville. I also stayed at a nice hotel in Desert Hot Springs. I love the desert, Vegas, Phoenix.....but I like the quiet small towns and out of the way places best. :tongue:

Indio's across the street from where I live. I'm on the border of those two cities (Jefferson St.) You want to talk about explosion....in about 10 years they're predicting both Indio (66K) and LQ (35K) will double in population! :eek: We already have enough enough trouble with traffic down here.

Why'd you move to the other side of the desert SW? I don't blame you, though. At least you've got Phoenix next door. It's pretty damn boring here.

I am originally from here. My dad was in construction and had a couple of jobs in La Quinta (the Vons and another big shopping center). I wasn't there for very long before moving here.
