what and who are you guys. I lived up in taipei 2 years ago and surfed all the time, but be real with your epic days. I may have had one good day at Jinshan beach and that was the day of a contest, but come on. You guys made me drive all the way up there for shiite waves the other week. But on the positive side you guys are having some fun and thats what its all about and you keep me thinking of the surf!.

Always good to hear from our readers Tommy. One thing I will point out: the site is reporting on what happened, not predicting future conditions. We're from some of the best surfing locations on the planet, so when we say we got a good surf we know what we're talking about. After getting out to Jinshan and other beaches 2 or 3 times a week for 5 years, we've had more than our fair share of absolute shit waves, so we like to celebrate if we get a few. Hope we meet up some day: we can share a few war stories.

We made you drive up there? Christ we're good! Tommy, now we want you to send us all your money....

Tommy's mate said...

I completely agree with Tommy, Jinshan is crap and as for the pillbox............

Tommy said...

Who is this mate of mine, I don't have any mates. I am just heading to the bank to transfer all my money to Ross' account. Ross can I have your account number?

Tommy's mate said...

I can't believe you don't remember me........that special night. YOu were Heath and I was Jake, we were the best looking cowboys this side of Brokeback Mountain.

Tommy said...

You weren't supposed to mention that in a public forum you little cutie!! You still got those chaps?

This is the real Tommy and you guys are classic! I'm enjoying this, especially on this day when I'm considering a big step and maybe a relief in my life---divorce.
I don't know who is my mate that wrote that and you're right I didn't go up there just cause you said it was good and I like the response but I want your money...
I surfed Jinshan in a contest and since then they don't let foreigners surf in it, I won it but I'm not even a good surfer. From California and so you're right its a huge hit and miss here in taiwan but when its on, its on and there are no crowds or attitude-- hope it stays this way. but its not its changed much since three years ago when I came. My first session I was at Fulong and had some great waves and even made the front cover of the newspaper that day. Surfing has grown here but I'm afraid it may grow too much and now with a family I can't get to the east too much and thats where its at!. Do me a favor and I'm thinking Sunday may be good up that way... if so post some good shots. No hard feelings in any of this and keep up the good vibes! Peace in waves, rasta, and jah! Tommy

Hi Tommy,
Sorry to hear about your hassles. Let's hope for a bit of swell to get us all back in a good mood. One of the boys here decided to be both you and "your mate" and he had me sucked in for a few days too!
We all enjoyed the "chat";it was a good laugh....see you some time....
cheers, dave
PS Ross is still waiting for that money!!
