Ok Kev, Each to their own. Ive met Riis about three times and we have become friends. His family own Kirra surf in Australia (1 of the largest surfing retail outlets there), so yes I will let people know about him. Just like I do for Aloha boardsports and 540 surf shop. I am here trying to do the right thing here and I have people here trying to bring me down. I have good advice for people looking to improve their surfing. Because I refer someone to a surfboard dealer that you don't agree with, it makes me not qualified? You say you have nothing against Riis, but you have a lot of damning stuff to say

Kev, as for me not frequenting La Union as much as you, or other surfers from manila, does that mean I am not allowed to refer them to someone from there. Riis might have some differences with other resort owners, but that is between him and them (not me and you). The main reason I recommended Riis was because the lady asking about surfboards for her children, mentioned that they had lessons in La Union. Plus Riis and I have talked about board design and what people need. He knows what he is talking about and I trust him. Not because I'm for or against him or the others up there. I don't want a bar of your local politics and I will continue to do what I think is right.

I’ve seen you in La Union only several times (under the influence even during mornings, if I may add)
MMM, nice 1 Kev???? It's obvious what you are trying to do here. At no time do I mention the word EXPERT, but I do say I am a qualified coach (which I am). A lot of more accomplished surfers than me have been to most of the places I have visited here in the Philippines and places I have been elsewhere. Does that mean I am not to give advice on who to buy a surfboard of, or help them improve there surfing. Anyway, thanks 4 the spelling tip. Most people in Australia spell it Reece. Sorry I didn't check with him first for the correct way to spell his name.

Don't know why you guys are so bent on putting a downer on this topic, or on putting me down. I'm not claiming to be some all time legend, nor have I done anything to antagonise any of you. If someone makes false claims about me or what I say, I will correct them. Some people have come in here and I feel I have helped them. If you dont think I can help you, nevermind me. As for my papers, yes all are in order. If you want to check and try to deport me, go for it. Department of employment and BOI know all about me and its costing me a futune. Anyway chill out guys and go let your frustrations out in the waves. you might find yourself hitting the lip harder.

It really amazes me how this forum has been seen as an avenue for different people to put this guy Darryl down.  Going over the Philippine threads here makes me think surfers here have some kind of personality disorders.  It really doesn't speak well of our surfer's community. I am afraid it's the old crab mentality that some Filipinos have.  Let us make this a true surfer's forum.  Not a rant thread.  Thanks.

If you're going to talk about crab mentality in this subject, don't forget to add naivete. People/opportunists like Daryl come and go and they thrive for the time that they're here because people are naive especially in a sport where the Philippines does not have a long history.
The roots of this sport/activity, if you do your research, is covered in politics. From beach access, localism, sponsorship, contest bais, racism, ethnocentricism, prejudice, marketing, etc.
All sports have politics, it's unavoidable, especially in a country that has a culture riddeled in heavy in politics. This is no different.
