I went North for various reasons. Basically epic surf and no crowd. This spot was passed over for overhead A frames at Anastasia.

Dude is a LEGEND! Notorious for riding backwards, board upside down, doing vertical snaps on a 10' in overhead surf, cussing out anyone and everyone, you name it he rips!

I met Jim Mac in 1978. He was so much fun to be around. I used to try a lot of his tricks, my favorite was the somersault you started from the tail and finished off on the nose.

He was never the same after his wife left him for - you know who.
I was sponsored, like 400 others by her new hubby and I became his poster child of hate. Even though even Ke11y was sponsored by the same. He started being so critical of how I surfed it was impossible to be around him.

A year ago I met Riverman, a nice young parent who shared my same experiences.

Sad, but true.

P.S. OneBuck, I ditto your remarks. I have extended the proverbial olive branch to this one so many times to no avail. He is broken.

I was with my kids (two tiny little gals) long ago and at 2nd light my crappy old Nissan truck bent the bumper on his van. I was bummed and he laughed and said no problem. He makes his opinion known but it's well thought out. Example, the reasoning he gave me and my friend about riding backwards was thought provoking.

And I was there, long before you arrived in Fla when he stubbornly rode a 2 foot wave behind a novice surfer at Apollo Building, now Slater Way, and he persisted to pressure the poor man before the guy pearled and his tail shot back at Jim and cut his leg open.
Any normal person would have rationalized that the guy of lesser ability should have been left alone.

Nope.

Jim drags the guy to the hospital to force him to pay his bill in the ER.

Ok, keep defending him. I tried for years.

Ask Mr. Reid. He, too, has suffered his wrath. I was there for that.

All bark and only bites when he knows he can get away it. Just a sad, angry old dog.

I can remember one time with tipper..... Down south Melbourne beach..kind of at a off beat spot..he was taking some pics (mean while we had surfed there MANY TIMES PRIOR)..he comes up talking all this shit how,now everyone is gonna know where this certain spot was,and how everybody and there mother would show up cause of that... Needless to say it was far from that,to say the least... Then again one time at the pier I remember him giving woody(cat fish kid)..a bunch of un needed ranting and bitching...heard that story from another member on here..... he sure seems to hold Dennis and a few chicks high up on the status clinger list from the looks of his site..but it is what it is.....he's cranky fucker... thats 4sure

We all need salty people out there. Try to refrain from bashing him so much. It's all water under the bridge. People go through different things and situations. His 16streets site is pretty good and I enjoy his photography. He was there at the beginning of it all and is just as opinionated as the next person and writes pretty good.

Rock on, when's the next hurricane swell?

Known Jimmy since 1960 (first guy I met when we moved into the neighborhood just south of what is now Pineda). He was a good guy, but, had a lot of mouth. Sounds like not much has changed.

We have sparred for decades and still remain friends. Holding anger takes too much energy from me.

RC and him are the Hatfields and McCoys of the wave riding world and for some reason that seems fitting to me.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

I started surfing backwards as a novelty and then got good at it. On a mushy burger riding a log, it makes it very fun. Its like surfing by feel. I think its what happens when you get old, still surf and can't be bothered to learn airs. Spend enough time in the water and things like this happen.
