At least they don't seem to jump up and down on their boards on a wave looking like some toddler throwing a silly fit cause it carn't get what it doesn't even know what it wants.

Surfing has no age limit! Do what you want as long as you can. If I see and older dude on a shorty I'll give him his props as long as he has style.

I've seen a guy in his 70's on a mini-mal out at Scarborough beach in Perth. He was going alrite too.
I plan to be doing the same thing at his age, but I'll still be on a short board ;)

I'm into riding a fairly small "Heart & Soul" 2 metre thruster.
I get some real good waves on the little stick. ( Not as much as the younger guys generally) It's so wied geting into the comercial surfer hype. ( Like even the brand of boardshort you wear) I love surfing nude when I get a no hassle place to be able to do it / it gives one so much more freedom than a sohort rubing / and I reckon it just creates some type of better Aura feeling / especially considering we were born that way.
