Surfer Look - Look Like a Local

Surfers wear T-shirts and boardshorts both on and off the beach. That's why the surfer look is a way of life rather than a fashion statement. Their style is very laidback, with lots of logos and lots of colors. For great surf gear, check out Quiksilver, O'Neill, Rip Curl and Billabong. You should also drop by PacSun at your local mall - it carries many different brands of surf wear.

Surfer Look - Be an Accessory Man

Slide into a pair of flip-flops - they're the preferred choice - and strap on Oakley sunglasses to reduce the glare of the sun that reflects off the water. In case you wipe out, the lenses have holes around the edges for fast drainage and quick de-fogging. At $250 US, it's more of a splurge than a steal but come on, how cool is that?

Surfer Look - Learn the Lingo

You can't walk the walk if you can't talk the talk! So brush up on your surfing terminology with this quickie lesson...

  • Epic - When the waves are epic, the conditions are pretty much perfect.
  • Stoked - Excited, full of enthusiasm!
  • Baller - Someone who cries on the beach when he breaks his board.
  • Nacho - A surfer says this when he messes up.

last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
