okay, I think king makes more sense than other posters in this thread. yeah, he's right (RISPITO) respect for the ocean and the locals is all that matters, its like a give and take situation and It will all follow from there on. aloha and peace to everyone on this thread.

Alkeita - I am a philipino who grew up in Australia and I have surfed both countries my whole life (as well as many others). What the f&&k is wrong with you? You give philipinos such a bad name. You are obviously not a stupid person as your grammar and diction is obviously intelligent, you are just a twisted and spiteful individual. You are definitely not tough mate, because if your were you wouldn't be talking shit on the internet like a weak piss-ant. And anyone else supporting this guy's comments is a disgrace as well.
That Niko guy who is supposedly a Russian who has surfed both Hawaii and Indonesia for over 20 years - I honestly don't think I have heard anyone more full of shit than you.

This whole topic is easily summed up. If you are a true surfer you would know that there are no locals and non-locals in the ocean. There are only good people and tools. If you're a tool you should leave the ocean or be "encouraged to leave by the good blokes". The ocean belongs to no-one and should be shared by all.
I'm from a very localised surf community on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and there are tools and they are the scum of the earth, talking shit all the time. Alkeita and Niko are cut from the same cloth. Keep talkin' it up fellas. You're both awesome.

The only real locals are the sharks the porpoises the fish. I try to feed them and I do really hope one of them eventually eats me ( Not yet) Surfers should respect each other as surfers even to the fact that they get into the ocean as some people would love to surf but are totally freaked out by sharks and won't. I used to give a lot of waves to guys for years but it doesn't happen for me now as i'm older and the victim of a lot of injuries. I still get a few waves and it's the greatest thing.

Shacked, you’re as fake as a poser can get. How many Filipinos actually get their own ethnic title spelled incorrectly and still claim to have been to the Philippines as many times as you have? Why is it that you can’t even spell the Philippines correctly and claim you surfed Pinas your "whole life"? You must have taken the short little yellow bus to school thinking that you’re on your way to get some education.
You're just a fake Aussie posing as a “Philipino” trying to get everyone to believe that surfing in Australia isn’t territorial, when it is. If visitors to Aussie can get vibed, why can’t we do the same? Who are you to say that we should be subservient to people that you worship?

You are such a dick Al kieta,
Ive read through these forums about the Philippines and you pop your ugly comments up all over it. Read them quite closely. You sound like a total kook. Yep, I went right back. You have been making a fool of yourself for quite some time. Anyway, keep it up and keep giving a bad impression to the outside world. Luckily we are smart enough to realize not all Philippinos are as messed up as you.

wow what a forum lol,I'm going to the pl at the end of the year and hopefully there for 3 or 4 months,it's the same rules in any country for surfing I think,however I hate crowds and would rather search for another spot if it's packed,I'm no pussy but I can't
be fucked with the aggro,in new Zealand our local spots aren't touched by suffers coz
they a bit too dangerous or shallow so I'm hoping I can find spots like that ,that keep the normal suffers away , if I can't I guess I'll be getting the scraps on the shoulder lol
hope that won't happen.some of you guys need a chill pill ,it all gets sorted out in the carpark after your surf anyway,

Ostrich Ass, for sure you think I'm messed up. If i don't benefit your point of view, then to you, I'm messed up. As for anyone else, yes I do speak my mind coz whenever everyone else who is from outside of the Philippines speaks their point of views about their country, we Filipinos become passive and nonjudgemental because we have a nonconfrontational nature. Yet when a Filipino like myself speaks his mind, I'm judged as messed up and a kook, IN MY OWN COUNTRY.
Get it straight Ostrich Ass, you have the respect of every non local who comes into your country and will yield to your views, why can't you do the same for a Filipino in his country?
