After much debate, I've decided I can't actually tell whether this site is trying to be ironic. Here is the crux of the anti-surfing argument:
Venturing into cold murky polluted water is an invitation to disaster. There are jellyfish waiting to sting mercilessly; sharp rocks and coral heads... Ear, nose and respitory [sic] infections are inevitable... Everyone has heard of white sharks, and have you heard about the killer whale attacks, angry harbor seals and teritorial [sic] elephant seals? Their unprovoked attacks on surfers is legend. While out in the water someone is for sure to be breaking into your car and stealing your money, credit cards and cell phone. Don't forget the broken glass, the increase in your car insurance and the towing, when you discover the wheels are missing!
My mellow hath officially been harshed.
