    "Who Surfs"? - Toyota do!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I went surfing once, managed to stand on the board and ride a few waves in even. But it all changed when the fire nation attacked

    Toby, I thought that the point of surfing was to ride the board not fight the board.

    Lived and breathed Surfing from 7yrs till 25yrs, till a rafting accident down the Motu fucked me for a number of years. Got back Tried to get back into it when I was around 28yrs but not having the mobility and the fitness I had, was riding 5'8 / 5'10' Quads at the time of my accident. I changed to Mals. Now Because I'm bigger 107kg I'm into Sups. Hey it's better than Goat boats, which I currently have 3 of. Currently have 2 boards and surf them, as well as Flat water workouts, even got the Bride Keen even.
