these are beautiful photos but it's completely inappropriate for man to venture back into the ocean, millions of years after our ancestors fought and clawed onto sweet terra firma. The ocean doesn't want us and frankly we have no business in there.

Ventura CA here

ever since the shanghai shiver hoax came about every good spot is so fucking crowded. i'm not motivated to surf at all this year unless it gets like 10ft and all the pussies are too scared to go out.
>>
>>1965264
Really, the only things that make me NOPE from swimming at the shore are either environmental (contaminated water) small and poisonous (sea snakes, jellies, giant water bugs, stonefish, etc.) or crocodilians. Sharks don't really spoop me except in open water and whales and dolphins are fucking rad but poople who swim anywhere even remotely near crocodilians are fucking crazy.

What in the fuck is the shanghai shiver hoax no one goes in the ocean why is this other than not being able to swim. I would teach anyone to swim for free

This is false. It hasn't been that long since we ran scared from the shorelines. Its called the Aquatic Ape Theory. Look it up some time.
>>
>>1966674

South Coast sucks especially. All the tourists and weekend losers from LA and Oxnard shitting up Malibu.

Can't park anywhere. Beaches filled with children and Mexicans.

County Line has been fucked over by Instagram and all the fucktards making a pilgrimage to Neptune's Net.

Humans and chimpanzees diverged about 6 million years ago it’s been 10s of millions of years. Are deep water jews related to aquatic apes?

I used to sometimes surf at the place just south of County line called Heavens. That place is pretty good and doesnt get too crowded.
>>
>>1971164
Lies. Also, we're full
>>
>>1965204

If there's nothing in the cave worth dying for, there's nothing underwater worth diving for, so the sign seems to be arguing from a point of hypocrisy. Obviously a lie to keep plebs from stumbling on the coke hoard before the handlers pay a visit.

Went to Florida for vacation. Swam in the ocean, barely deeper than 6 ft.

Guy on the docks told me later that tiger sharks were swimming between people.

Mfw I remember kicking one

Lol nah. I go out at south jetty on the boog. Surfed there today, was like 10ft on the big sets. No stand ups out there, just bodyboarders

I love the ocean, I worked as a commercial fisher for a while. Nothing will fuck you up faster than the ocean though.

Mate I'm in the ocean every day atm. Couldn't dive for like a year and a bit cos I got a bad eye injury and I've lost all my hunting skillz. Scored some nice pāua and crays the other day tho.
>>
>>1975601
>pāua and crays the other day tho.
Nice bro.
You can keep the paua, but man I need to go get some more crays soon.
I can eat those tasty little buggers till I'm sick then get in to another one ha ha
>>
>>1975607
also, what the shit did you do to your eye that kept you sidelined for A YEAR??
Did you slice it right open or something?
>>
>>1971041
Aquatic Ape Theory has been throughly debunked. It's proven with fossil evidence that we come from the plains.
>>
>>1975609
Chur man whereabouts u diving? Wellington has been on since Xmas, mean vis every day.

I got glassed in the eye by this fried cunt at a bar lol. They had to stitch it back up and it doesn't work anymore. Pretty gay but what can u do
>>
>>1975616
I'm in Nelson mate.
I just drop a pot every now and then - I've hauled in too many nets to even consider getting in the water with the shit I've seen come out of it. (I know it's a bit irrational, but I can't relax.)
Sucks about your eye bro - fucking Meth Til Death crowd shows up in random places these days. Found a bunch of used needles at the local river the other day, useless cunts.
One of our mates lost an eye to bacteria in South America a couple of years back. Christmas and birthdays now, instead of socks n undies, he gets Magic Eye posters and eye patches.
Oh we have two mates with the same name, so he's now Pirate Si.
Hopefully your mates are a bit less rough on you ha ha
>>
>>1975647
*To be fair, with a bit of bullying, and so long as there's one or two other people in the water, I'll spear fish or free dive (snorkelling really) a few times a year, usually around the sounds or Kaikoura.

Only subhumans don't enjoy the ocean and you shouldn't even be on this board if you don't swim nude in the ocean at least once a year.

based.

Actually the ocean is great though. Especially when you are far out enough to not see any land at the horizon. Just you on the ocean. Puts the concept of infinity into perspective when no matter where you look it just goes on forever. Water to the horizon, space above and the ocean below.
>>

>>1982201
>the thought of this makes me uncomfortable
That's okay, it doesn't have to be for everyone. I get that it's a horrible thought for most people, but I find it strangely calming. Being out on the ocean gives me the same feeling that looking at a star sky without light pollution does. When you are in a city in a apartment the world seems to center around you, but when you look at space or the sea it becomes clear how silly that thought is.
>>
>>1982202
it just makes me feel unsafe. i need an abort/escape option and in that scenario is there is.

"woops motor's busted lol", "woops sprang a leak lmao", "woops there's a boatload of murderous somalis bearing down on me haha"

yeah, nah
>>
>>1982205
>an abort/escape option
I get that, but if you go deep enough in the woods do you really have one there? Or on the mountains? Granted you wont fucking drown there, but neither of these are "safe" either.

Did you grow up with the ocean? Like did you visit it regularly or at least for a week or so a year? I think that makes a giant difference in how afraid people are of it. I associate it with happy childhood memories, I'm sure that helps.
It's not like your boat is on acid, if it were to sink your body still floats with close to 0 effort. Even in violent waves, unless its a storm the waves at the coasts tend to have a rythm. Take a breath between waves, and dive below them. If they didn't foam yet, you can jump them. If neither is an option, they will throw you around a bit. Hold your breath, you will loose orientation but your body buoyancy will bring you to the surface again.
>>
>>1965174
Got pulled out by a riptide without realizing it and ended up being dashed against a set of rocks when I swam back in, clinging to them for a second only to be pulled away, then thrown against them again. I thought I was going to die.

Fuck the ocean.

Remember, if picture points towards your right hand, it was taken on the atlantic shore. If it points towards your left hand, the. It was taken on the pacific shore. Can be helpful in order to find these «secret spots»

>>1982793

bout three fiddy

the people who invented kayaks kicked around in the arctic circle with kayaks built of bones and animal skins. Now, they were inculcated from birth and had almost nothing else to do with their time, so don't expect your results to tally with theirs - but there is no particular reason that you could not build a skin-on-frame sea kayak and do whatever you want to do successfully.
