Do i still need to pay

« on: September 12 2004 17:09:00 »

Bula, I am a native fijian, who lives in America. Do I still need to pay all that money to surf what is rightfully mine to surf. The last thing I need is a Palangi telling me that I cant surf in my native waters, in my native country.

See, that's what the dispute is all about: the american says it's rightfully his to decide who can surf cloudbreak. They have the locals on their side, since they get paid. + finding a local from the mainland who is willing to risk and get his boat burned is not easy to find.
Good luck

hola, im an american who is running a surf camp in mexico. i understand your frustration. ive sailed all over the world and as far as im concerned no one can say who does or does not surf a break. i would never tell a mexican he cant ride in front of my camp. if your leash breaks and you need to retrieve your board above the high tide line ,that may be another matter. cant we all just get along? ive had to pull asshole locals to safety when they get in over thier head, i would hope that if i got slammed and was choking to death atrue surfer would do the same.  your welcome to surf here, adios
