Hi gang, welcome to the Mutual Admiration Society. May I axe a quexcion. This is 2007, how far removed was 1959? I know. Along, long, time ago

elderly fellows rule said...

Gentlemen approching old age, you are always wecome here. Hair length (many of our members have ponytails), flabby skin, the result of advancing age, and once surfed way back when, but can't give it up.

people don't live that long said...

Make that "your friend." I don't hang around with guys that old, except when I have to mow the cemetary.

The day I have to show people my picture out of some old magaine is the day I take my own life.

world renowned - LOL said...

"a world renowned surf magazine" ROTFLMAO! that's as funnny as they come. one day i'll post my picture from a world renowned matchbook cover collector's magazine that has 10 times the circulation of that surf rag.

get it? said...

Barry: So you're going to 'hang' yourself then? That's so funny. Why, it's a killer joke.

Papa Woody said...

To "people don't" and "Barry Williams":
Don't make me come down there and hire two guys to kick your asses.

Know said...

I know this guy! He was one of the first Blow Surfers! Whenever we saw him surfing, we said he really blows. He was one of Jack Jerk Off's reps at the first Surf-O-Po-Losers at San Onofre back in . . .

"me too" aka "remember when" said...

knowing him makes me important!

older than dirt said...

Hey you wan2bee comedians, a.k.a. Queer Patrol and Anonymous #14,566,000, get with it. That old timer's 70 going on 71, but he is from PV.

Gol - leee! said...

hardy har har said...

Hang Ten - Really, don't plead on another blog for someone to post your pictures, pictures that you email to them. Try to do these pathetic things behind the scenes. The only thing that would be more pathetic is if some loser then actually posted th . . . oops. Never mind.

ol' father time said...

Hang 10, your surf career, after a half century, is finally over. What's Longboard's circulation, 20,000 or what.

kook patrol said...

hardy har har must be upset because he's a kook and nobody would even take a picture of him that be be worth posting in any way shape or form!

murphy said...

Dear Hardy Har Har, if you think you have a picture worth posting let us know and we'll see about posting it. We are equeal opportunity posters, but if it turns out to be other than good we will see that you become the laughing stock of the surfing world!

Hardy Har Har said...

Sure, you gots email?

Hang Ten said...

Hardy: Interesting view??? I don't remember having a carrer in surfing? I was one of the lucky guys that was sponsered at that time? Free boards and that was it. Did not take photogs on surf trips and chase the camera either. Was just lucky to be there when Granny was there also. All the media crap started after I went off to the service and school for a few years. I know you all needed to know this, but some things, just make you mad at times. The best thing about all of this, is, I go all over the world and on the beach,I know someone. Fun for sure!!!Hell, I've known Murph since we were kids! I love the guys that think we can't or should not surf any more?? What the hell is with that??

Hardy Har Har said...

I can't understand what you are saying. Please be clear.

Hang Ten, I hear you loud and clear. Now, when is all this going down, the 90's or what. You might consider leaving surfing to make room for folks under 50. Have you any friends you could recruit for some Over the Line.

Hang Ten said...

Room??? Check out Malibu on Surfline!! I looked at the Cam 2 hours ago and I bet there were 200 hundred guys in the water. I'm not there, so there is room that I'm not taking up! Hah, room??? One guy can't make any difference! And we thought it was crowded when we were kids. As Lance Carson said when the hunting contest started" Here goes the neighborhood" He was dead on!!! Does anyone take this stuff seriously??? If you do?? get a life as they say? Whoever they are???

Hang Ten said...

Ah Crap, that's Huntington!!!

Hardy Har Har said...

Write clearly.
I can not understand you.

crowmagnon man said...

Tubesteak! You can jump in any time we love to hear from YOU! Oh! And Hardy? If it wasn't for us old guys, there would be no young guys, remember THAT! I know guys over 60 yrs old that can still out surf MOST guys under 30! Go watch a Grand Masters event sometime.

who said old can't surf said...

Hello Cromignon, thanks for the intro. This Hang Ten just refuses to let go. Lance Carson was a product of the 70's. If I said it once, I've said it a thousand times: Here's my arm, give me a break. BTW, this is 2007 not 1971.
Longboard surfing is out, VideoBlogs are in.

Hang Ten said...

My Arm?? My Ass??? Arggghhh 70'S??? Steak did you lose a few years back there??? What the hell went on in the 70'S, other than furthering of the short board in which I did not take part, and I was on the north shore allot!! It's still mediorcrity in the warter for sure!!!

Hardy Har Har said...

I can't understand what you are saying. Please be clear. And the spelling is getting wrose.
