Wow NCJ. Real classy. You talk about Capelton (and JAH) hating fags, when you are condoning further hate. Well guess what… Your intentions and message is whacked. Didn’t you learn anything in grade school!? Who is this Joel kook..? This toon makes me think you are the racist and hateful one here. Go home. This is seriously some childish BS. So what..? When Snoop Lion comes to town you going to put an image of him with an uzi in his hands shooting crips and bloods at Red Fox. Or any reggae artist will be greeted with a sick cartoon such as this because all Rasta’s hate fags, right!!!? That’s the way I see your message here. The world is bigger than you so humble yourself, find a new career, and learn how to be respectful. You owe Brian Swislow a huge apology as well as the entire JA community. Man, your karma just plummeted. I do feel for you man.
Anons Last…pipe down! You can't type.... so who's the idiot? Why such a bad ass? The disrespect I spoke of relates exactly to your opening sentence. I can pretty much guarantee you too are a transplant... wherever you reside. Silicon Valley maybe? You ever sit back to think about who's land you're inhabiting (vomiting on)? You should quit relying on public record to support your “know it all” attitude. I received all the information I stated directly from NATIVE people of this area. So unless you know what you are talking about, you should humble yourself, build one, and veer away from whatever you're sniffing. Stick to Soap operas and avoid trying to surf.
I am not sure who this Hank Simms character is and don't really ever care to for simple matters of respect. I am one of those relocation kids mentioned in the article that has been here for 16 years and seem to have always held strong respect for all local cultures and sub-cultures. And one thing I would never do is EXPLOIT something I know nothing about just because I feel I need to be a recognized contributor such as in this case. Such a settler mentality to step on everything even when people ask you politely not to make mention. Just as indigenous people have rightfully neglected to share information about their traditions or places for worry of exploitation, Humboldt surfers have a similar viewpoint on that. You advertise what we have spent years earning and next thing you know there’s people wanting to make it a destination and then comes the fast food on the cliff. You obviously have never paddled out and nearly got your head ran over by someone who has no clue. The places we surf are often sacred places, such as Camel Rock (a Yurok prayer rock known as poik) amongst many others and I found this article disrespectful to a lot of people, not just the surfers. Think before you leap hank...
