Righteous Dude. Freak'n Righteous.
Surfer Arrested Off Shore Of Galveston As Rita Approaches
The fuzz should have left you alone so you could have gone all 'Keanu Reeves' on the Rita waves. You would have gone down in annals of surfdom as the most insane, most agro 'Surf-Helg' in the great State of Texas.
Of course you would have busted your noggin off on a Micky-D's sign as you rode the ultimate wave across the city, but hell… you could have been more famous than that So-Crates geezer and the Billy the Kid Dude.
Rock On Brother! Rock. On.

Many, many years ago, while living on Guam, one of the guys from school headed out to surf before the typhoon arrived. The last person he saw told him to be careful and he said something like "s***, you know I'm good!" and out to sea he went. He was good, but they identified him from his swim trunks after he had been swimming with the fishys for a few days.2:45 PM
Did the news article mention anything about "stuck on stupid"? I think that would fit the situation.5:05 PM

Back in 92 when hurricane Andrew was off the coast of Pensacola, there were around 40 surfers out around the edge of the barrier island. You couldn't go out straight into the surf because the waves were crazy huge and fast but if you went to the end of the island, the waves would run around the edge. The water was 2-3 feet deep between waves that were 10 to 15 feet tall. The trick was to run between the waves, jump on your board with speed like a skim board and ride the cannon shot out. I can understand where he was coming from being young and dumb once too.1:35 PM
