Anyway, I arrive in
Okay, to the story. I am paddling out on my Surftech surfboard and these Japanese guys (with top of the line hand shaped boards), look over and start laughing at my board. I hear them speak loudly, “Surfotech? Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha!” My Japanese surf brothers are making fun of my Surftech. This is not totally unusual as a lot of surfers can’t stand the computer manufacturing of blanks and new epoxy resin. Change is difficult for some, not me.
Note: Most traditional surfboards are hand shaped and glassed, but Surftech is a computer shaped blank with an epoxy fiberglass.
After an hour of being cut off and dropped in on by a Japanese gang of rude, control freak surfers, I got a little bit angry, which is not my normal disposition. I believe waves are to be shared and peace in the water. It appeared that I would need a new tactic to enable me to get a few waves, as these guys had no intention of sharing. I thought for a moment about their jesting and I remembered being sucked into a pier surfing a gulf coast hurricane swell while in
Laughing is good for the soul so laugh while you can, then I break out the surf-o-tech! Ha-Ha-Ha! I drop in singing:
Michael had a Surf-o-Tech, Surf-o-Tech, Surf-o-Tech,
Michael had a Surf-o-tech, a surfing he would go!
And every where that Michael went, Michael went, Michael went,
And, every where that Michael went, the Surftech is sure to go!
