what a punk ass! I've been surfing the washout for 35 years, I wish that this lame ass would yell at someone in front of me so that I could grind his ass and face into the sand in front of his 'boy's'. Ryan Overhiser should be ashamed for writing this article. Nothing worse than a wanna be with a loud mouth on 2-3 ft Folly shore break surf. This Mt. P boy needs an old fashioned James Island style ass whipping in which I would be more than happy to give.
Cuff speaks the truth. Don't go to the most crowded spot on the beach to learn. Go somewhere else to learn and go to Washout once you can at least CONTROL YOURSELF AND YOUR BOARD. Otherwise you might get your ass r.un over by a kayak.
for those of you butchering cuff's comments, take it easy. you probably don't know him or don't surf at the washout. those of us that do know him know that he is a cool guy and one of the best surfer's out there. his comments were most likely taken out of context by the writer in order to emphasize his passion for surfing and the dangers involved by those who don't know what they're doing. if you come to the washout and are respectful and knowledgeable you can catch waves along with everyone else. cuff will probably be the guy in the lineup giving you a high five after a good barrel (during one of the four days of the year when we actually get barrels).
Gleaton is right, if you come to the washout on a good day just to go straight, poke your butt out, and flail your arms everywhere; you can go down the beach and do the same thing and get the same satisfaction. i like Gleaton's attitude. there needs to be more of this same exposure so word is out to all the beginners that you can get your fix in down the beach. if you are ditching your board while paddling out because you can't duck dive, you are a fucking barney and you deserve to be yelled at.
"The washout is a place for serious, aggressive surfing" - well, not really. It's just overcrowded with little boys with out-sized egos, and the requisite attitude to match. The best thing about the place is that it attracts make believe adolescent heroes like a magnet, so the better spots are less populated with the mouthy types like Gleaton.
It's a safe bet that anyone who says "those of us who surf the washout on the regs" is a kook.
Gleaton obviously has insecurities that should be addressed and ironically just made himself a target for those of us who surf folly on a regular basis. Harassment and tool baggery from dick skin like this should be reported. That's the last guy surfers need talking to magazines-- in no way does he represent those of us who surf the washout on the regs...
you morons watch point break way too much. and it doesnt matter where you go on folly (or sc for that matter) there are no good waves. Gleaton probably still lives at home with his mom, so next time she drops him off at the washout make sure all you newbies stay out of his way, he's an 'extreme' professional riding monsters out there. this is is the sorta stuff legends are made of, youre the you are the epitome of a douche bag, equal to the guy who wears croakies and boat shoes and has never stepped foot on a dock. you might as well be surfing the point break on lake placid...just make sure your mom knows where to pick you up.
There are miles of beachbreak on Folly and IOP where you'll find friendly folks who are happy to share their love of surfing. This includes the Washout - not every good surfer acts like Lance Burkart - but take the point that it's not the place to learn to surf. Until you know what you're doing and know the rules of the lineup you're a danger to yourself and others in a crowd.
dude sounds like an A hole "for sure bro"!!
"We can all complain about the heat in July (and yes, it's getting worse)..."
Hottest recorded temp in July 2011 - 96 deg.

Its not really getting worse, just your body's normally air conditioned response to it is...
That "terrible" CofC Magazine article won a Communicator Award of Excellence! Nice job, CofC Magazine!
I live in Charleston now, but am from Bishopville. I was even interviewed when PM Magazine did their story about the Lizard Man. I can tell you, even though as a kid I believed the Lizard Man was real, and was scared out of my mind, it was a hoax. My family and I knew the farmer mentioned above very well. It has been said he admitted to it after everything died down.
You don't understand evolution, FCB. This creature has, over many millions of years, become incredibly good at avoiding humans. That's practically all it does. Well, except for the Lizard Man, which attacked some people back in the day but even that might have been a genetic anomaly with a very short spin on the cycle of life. Speaking of anomaly's with a short cycle of life, there's a link to a really terrible article about the CofC's trip to check out the Lizard Man up above in the comments. Don't click on it, it's worse than being attacked by a Lizard Man.
As it is, there's a very real possibility that this thing exists and always has existed and we've just never seen it. It may even be invisible when we're looking at it, or it might just look like a tree. This sentence is in Spanish when you aren't looking at it. There's plenty of reason to believe in this.
What's troubling to me is how advanced this creature must be, in an evolutionary sense, to not only be so adept at hiding itself but to also be able to somehow, possibly psychically, prevent people looking for it to ever bring a camera with them and take a picture of the creature. That is quite an accomplishment.
Dead skunk, rabbit, deer, bear, snake, frog,squirrel, bird, human, in the middle of the road.
But no dead sasquatch or bigfoot.
Tells me all I need to know.
These people need to seek mental help.
Heh. Apparently that's how long I took meandering through that article.
Wow. That's professional of you.
By the way, you could have at least shared the link to your piece so that everyone could be bored to tears: http://magazine.cofc.edu/2011/09/07/lizard…
For more information about the Lizard Man, read the article about the College of Charleston professors' trip to Bishopville and watch a short movie documenting the adventure, visit
Hm, maybe should have mentioned that the three professors went to Bishopville with the writer, the photographer and the videographer for the College of Charleston Magazine. The magazine wanted to do a story about this, so we organized the trip and asked the professors to come along...
Respectfully, the notion that Moderation Management is a failed idea and program is clearly contradicted by numerous research studies over the past 3 - 4 decades. There are a continuum of alcohol-related problems from misuse to abuse to dependence to severe and chronic dependence. Intervening before there are severe problems and having a menu of treatment options makes sense. If one tries a moderation approach and fails, that experience of not being able to moderate (along with other negative consequences) can help motivate a person to choose abstinence. I thought I would include this link. It is a call to unity, signed by both individuals and treatment professionals both from AA and MM -- saying both approaches are needed. It also addresses the Audrey Kishline issue.
