    Hey David,
    Another great episode, I really enjoyed you and Scott discussing the state of surfing , crowds and pleasure. I grew up surfing crowded, hungry dog wave starved east coast , now I live in wave rich Nor Cal but I still run into crowding issues and the reason is my attitude . When I expect anyone to behave a certain way I am on my way to disappointment. I liked your point about sharing with a few good friends , I have the best sessions on those unexpected days when my expectations are low and it all comes together, thats epic.
    I look forward to your next show and that next unexpected epic moment.
