"Made in China"*
Everything that says "China"
you really need to ask?
1. Trade deficit
2. Chinese people are not allowed to buy it.
3. Human Rights - they don't have any.
4. We buy it, we should make it.
5. Tibet - goes w/ #3 too.
6. They don't surf or skate.
7. It's totally wrong. I'm getting pissed just writing this.
8. The government is not a friendly. It's at "war" with
9. Our companies are screwing themselves - we should be supporting our
own or at least other free, surfing communities.
10. Buying "Made in China" supports the repression of the Chinese
people & others plus in the long run you are contributing to your
own social & economic ruin.
On the bright side, you are in total control. I know, I
know... Yes. You are. You have a voice and a dollar
make 'em count.
Don't like what I have to say Okay it's cool we're free here. Let

alone in fourchon: Ike
Hey how's it going im currently
living and working in galliano and today i decided after work i would
go down and check out fourchon for some surf. So i head down and when i
get there the place got pretty beat up, i continue to the beach and see
large tents with people loading stuff into 18 wheelers right before the
bridge. I could see the bridge was closed so i parked switched into my
trunks grabbed my board and ran for the bridge. What i saw next
completely shocked me, as i was walking across the bridge i could hear
the roar of massive waves and see a whole lot of white. I quickly ran
barefoot from the bridge to the beach entrance. When i got there i
found that the beach was completely gone and the wave were massive,
sloppy and mushy but massive. The waves were crashing into those
concrete bag things under them was a slanted brick wall where the sand
use to be. Some waves would roll up the wall then back down creating a
south bound wave that would crash into the ones coming in, creating
this huge 10 foot spray. I stood and observed for awhile, the waves
past the rock jetties had 10 foot faces on the easy, the ones closer to
the beach would form real clean at about 5 to 6 foot tall and look
almost perfect then break over into a kinda mush but rideable wave. So
i stood there alone thinking about jumping in and going for it but in
the back of my mind i was like man i could easily get drug out to sea
and no one would ever know. I didn't have my lease because i left it in
my bros truck so i would have with out a doubt crashed my board into
the brick wall. So i continued to think about it, threw a jug in the
water to see if the current was real bad and it didn't seam to be, but
eventually a wave caught the jug and slammed it into the concrete wall.
I continued to watch and think and then all of a sudden i hear GET YOUR
CRAP AND GET OUT OF HERE!!! I look back and a port police had busted
me. He then told me south of the flood gates was a mandatory evac and
that i needed to get out of here. So i gather my things and start the
walk back to the bridge. So if anyone ask about going down that way to
surf its completely out of the question. Its probably a good thing i
got busted, could be out in the middle of the gulf right now if not for
that. Also i attached some pics. Notice the white in the distance from
the bridge pics.
We split - no party - did some
major chillin' in Mississippi after we saw the storm hadn't swamped the
city. Thanks John and Eddie! Mahalo!

booze at the Gods hurl storms at us! What's up with that?
Okay the free shots are off the menu. BYOB for Sat. We'll

it does go for us - evacuate with your board both sides, tx and fla,
should see some good surf.
