It's not just surfline or California.... it's the internet in general. Even here in South Carolina, what few wave events we get is now clusterfarked with 100's of internet zombies. The quiet regular NE days with current and lots of paddling there will be 5 guys out....then the much exploited and announced clean up day, there are suddenly all these "people" I have never seen before at my home spot....notice I didn't say "my" spot...but the spot I surf alot by my house.... they come out the woodwork for the "internet hype long range forcast swells".

Thanks internet for the donkies and zombies who all seem to have the entitlement complex and little or no common sense or courtesy. The internet has done the same thing for fishing in our area... buncha spoiled idiots have the info spoon fed too them..... then stink up the place for those who belong there and deserve to be there out of practice, patience and knowledge gained through trial and error experience.

Thanks for this site, pretty much check it everyday, it's a hoot. I should carry my camera around more cause we got a buncha donkies around here.....

The sad part is that doesn't even look that crowded anymore... especially for Black's

That's just farkin' unbelievable, and the sad part about it is the place used to be one of the most beautiful spots on the coast to surf, and now it's one of the ugliest, visually and with all the attitudes.

My friend and I have been surfing there for 25 years and just within the last six months the place has been completely over-run with wannabes, kooks, freaks, students and chicks. Why has this place all of a sudden become so popular? We have discussed it at length and can't find the answer. We don't think it's forecasting services, there was just this cosmic shift in the universe where the place is completely packed out every day of the week.

What the hell happened? Because it's ruined now.

In the case of the overhyped swell with a crowd of Donk's we call them Iwasout's... they show up have no clue how the break "breaks"... and clog the lineup by sitting inside of the small take off zone...
They claim the next weeks that "I was out that day"... As for the intense crowding outside of the over hyped days... I look at when I was a kid in the 70's at Salt Creek... Laguna Niguel barely existed and Aliso Viejo was some developers wet dream...
Dudes from Laguna and San Clemente were outsiders... but we were cool with our neighbors catching a good swell... now days every weekday morning is a high school surfteam... now one goes down at 1:15pm... so much for the mid afternoons... weekends and afternoons are stuipid... be glad in S.D. that winter max's out the donk's... us O.C. guys have to deal with it year round....and now with Baja Norte being life and death... we are at critical mass with too many fish in the fish tank...

Then an oil spill comes along and the ocean is so polluted that you feel powerless as just one person, picking up blobs of tar on the beach.

But you show up and there are literally hundreds of people, in their booties and rain tarps and plastic baggies, with their kitty litter scoops and whatnot, picking up the blobs and dead birds and such.

Thank God there are crowded lineups at times like these. I can't wait until we get it all cleaned up and get back to fighting over waves. Fortunately, with this many, it won't be long.

I don't think for a second that any of the "Iwasoutas" would lift a finger to clean up oil here, not for a second.... these are the silver spoon spoiled suckin their mommas titties types who paddle straight out to the best, most popular peak regardless of their ability...because they think they deserve it.

On topic, I forgot to mention cell phones. Just last swell we had, I'm walking down the boardwalk just at first light and I hear a guy on the phone...

"Wake up bro it's fire-in.... yea, it looks good maybe chest to head....no, it's glassy.... hey make sure to call Tim and Robert, Cliff and Peter and that dude Mangy Mike, he's really cool.... I'm gonna call Dan right now and get him to call Phil and Jonesey...OK Bro, make sure to tell them it was me who sounded the alarm"...

So then each of them call a few more dudes and within 1 hours time there are 40 instead of 5.

That blows....that's one reason I don't go there too often. If there were good surfers who had etiquette (sp?) all along the beach there it would be a lot more fun but going out with people mowing each other over cutting each other off blows on the crowded days....

GL. My rule is to never give surf reports to those who are too lazy to get their ass to the beach themselves. Never give in.

By the way, it's nice to see some healthy discussion on here...at least every once in a while!

Wow, that is just a lame idea. I bet the owner and their buddies all had shirts made that say...
