I know it sounds knit-picky to others, because we regularly drop the "beach" from Daytona Beach, because the mainland and the barrier island there are the same town. There is no "Daytona," unless you're talking about the speedway. But Cocoa and Cocoa Beach, being separated by two bodies of water, and another entire city (besides Cocoa being just plain nasty), really stirs up the local pride of the islanders.

There is absolutely nothing similar about the two...a slum on the mainland (Cocoa) vs. a beachfront community (Cocoa Beach). They couldn't be more different. They have no connection other than the word "Cocoa" in their names.

Ok... maybe the SO has good reason not to tow me behind it then ...

He is absolutely the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet.
Yea it was a super mellow warm afternoon with no waves and nobody out. He wasn't bothered a bit by it, I simply had to do it, I had realized a few minutes earlier that we were "sharing a moment" together and resolved to do something about it.

The only cockiness you get out of him is the reality of someone trying to get thru life being as awesome as he is. He's got a persona and image to protect, but in reality just a pure class act.

Greatest athlete of all time imo.

You just might have forgotten how exhausting it is to paddle paddle paddle paddle...

Love to surf, love to board, when choosing between one I wold say as long as I can do one of them
