every kook who surfs bournemouth deserves a punch!

bournemouth is always crap apart from 1 day a year, where everyone and your mum is out!

possibly the worst place to surf in england, one peak with about 80 kooks in the way! BICs and NSPs getting thrown all over the place killing the people who can surf.

if you want to learn to surf, go to a surf school then start surfing one groyne down from the pier, and when you get good and can actually surf (turn without running over the other 79 kooks) then maybe surf at the pier!

and once you do get that good your want to be in bali or somewhere, so STAY AWAY FROM THE SOUTH COAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have tried getting some surf in B mouth once or twice over the years. Use to live in boscombe. There is some serious attitude there so have now given up and go to wittering [nice people and the same south coast slop]. Have been close to a fist fight in bournemouth a couple of times. The poor excuse for a break there is full of w***kers. If I was to surf there again and got any more attitude there would probably be blood. It is actually really sad that localism has developed in such a poor surf spot.

it's kindof understandable as its so shite all the time that when its good people get fustrated with not being able to surf it with all the begginers in the way. however time to fuck off somewhere else where the swells more consistant and the brecks not full of compleate cunts says i.

Wow?? Bournemouth breaks a whole once a year. Thats 364 days build up to 1 frustrating day of waves. Of course its gonna be crowded .Try surfing with 200 other competent surfers out. At least you have an advantage over kooks , don't you?

ha, was thinking of trying the surf school at bournemouth for a few lessons to see what its like. only a few miles down the road. but if tossers like this are going to get annoyed off with people trying to learn something then they should grow up and f@#c off, remember, they had to learn to surf at some point.
and may well put me off trying out what seems a great sport
