Sorry you and Julio down by the schoolyard, if you can't take responsibility for more than a mean tube ride at 3' Ulu or surf in oil-soaked water, you buy right into the neo-cons and will live, breath, and surf....in any shit! Maybe help the Surfrider Foundation or volunteer for Greenpeace instead of having YOUR head in the capatalist bunghole of conservatism and planetary destruction!

What is in Teacher2's head? Darn good question, most of us have been wondering that ourselves. Just because you don't understand his cryptic writing style doesn't mean he is a loser. Odd? Sure! It takes all kinds, brah....
Too bad about the boat at Padang. After reading the story written by local surfers and their attempts to save the reef, it shores up the notion that commercial interests and surfer interests are diametrically opposed. Hey, let's drill offshore and see how much we can pull out of the seabed before we wreck some surfing sites with a blowout of some underwater pipeline. I say it will be at least four years or more before the sh*t hits the fan and people wake up to what is going on with their offshore ecology.

When I was a kid the saying was "The solution to pollution is dilution." Nice mantra and it sounded good but now we have clear evidence of all the junk and waste we towed out to sea and dumped with all it's hidden glories like holes burned into lobster shells by chemicals, disfigured bottom dwellers, the collapse of certain fish stocks, etc. It's proof that you can't pee in your salad and expect it to taste like mom's home cooking. There is a price to pay for everything. Listen to the voice crying out in the wilderness, reckoning day is near!

Excellent response TtB, when I advised you to take whirling dervish lessons for anger management, you did well! And I heard you recently ripped up Casino Pier lefts after you lost a load on the crap tables! As for Bungjulio, I surf clean Nantucket beachbreak in summer, then retire to 'secret' Goleta environs when not teaching at CSUSB; what I do with my monkey is none of your business and when you talk to Paul Watson, tell him Teacher2's still preaching revolution (at more than 33%). Vote GREEN to save the planet- NOBAMA OR McNUGGETCAIN!

I don't lose at craps, I play the don't come and back it up with the max allowed..... and then walk away when I win. Works like a champ!
BTW, Greenpeace has gotten my money for years.
Oh yeah, surfing content - I've gotten used to surfing in crap, if you are anywhere near the Santa Barbara channel then you know about those blobs of oil in the tideline, go surfing and you become a member of the blackfoot tribe.

Anyone who is interested should check out the surfline website, they're providing pretty good updates on the situation there. The boat is off the reef now but there seems to be still alot to do
RE: Shipwreck destroying Bali Surf Breaks« Reply #7 on: July 25 2008 09:07:00 »
I think the boat now has been pushed further onto the reef, after an attempt to free it from the reef with 2 (!!) Indonesian fishing boats failed.
Oil and diesel spilled over the reef.

TtB has again stumbled upon an ultimate scion; Santa Barbara indeed has oil balls and globules, but they're from natural seeps; still, it is pollution, but crude oil can be metabolized in small portions over time (why many small marinas have excellent snorkeling and marine life). Still, yesterday's US Senate hearings on 'drill,drill,drill' showed giant smoke clouds spewing from Katrina oil rig failure and Pres. hopeful John McNuggetCain cancelled his New Orleans visit because of 'bad' weather (hurricane was 600 miles away!!!). Did it have anaething to do with million gallon oil spill in the Mississippi? This one may rival Exxon in destruction of marine ecosystem! And where's NoBAMA? Kissing European ass, not even mentioning Padang! Chumps!
