pbowman, I didn't think you meant to be rude, or offensive, I was just pointing out that could be interpreted as degrading to some folks and figured maybe you were not aware of that. No offense taken.
brokenpaddlejon, wow man, you are hostile. I guess I'm a righteous bitch for thinking that behaving in a friendly and courteous manner while in a public "playground", especially in a tiny town that one is not from, should be standard operating procedure. I'm not saying make friends with everyone, or even talk to anyone, but casting dirty looks at the local kid who's trying to be brave enough to get out there, not waiting for others to get a turn, and hogging the wave....I stand by my comments, it's bad form and does nothing to foster good feelings for boaters. But wait.....sounds like maybe you're that guy? Oh, that must be it.
