You know, truly gnarly tarp surfers wouldn’t be caught dead riding a curl on a Lowe’s tarp. Harbor Freight tarps are the shizzle. They seem to be giving away a free abrasive cut off saw or Chinesium manner drill with every purchase over $4, so they’re our go-to place for tools with flimsy safety guards on them.
Watch the whole video. They’re nice kids, and tarp surfing looks like a blast.
Surfing. No one goes because it’s too crowded.
Love the big boards, though. I never got the appeal of the little boards and the herky-jerky style they engender. I like a nice, long, heavy board that knocks some sense into the guys surfing in front of me.
I don’t have many rules. Phil Connors in Groundhog Day pretty much sums up the rules a regular guy needs:
Clean up your room, stand up straight, pick up your feet, take it like a man, be nice to your sister, don’t mix beer and wine ever. Oh yeah, don’t drive on the railroad tracks.
There’s wisdom there, and in his heart he knows it, even though he’s kvetching a bit.
