I prefer to surf. I've surfed all my life and come to realize that nothing in the world can change you more mentally than being away from it all in the ocean. Sure, I golf, play tennis, soccer (football), run, etc. but nothing compares IMO to being in the ocean, it wipes away all the stress.

Wipes it away? More like eats it away. I was all about the ocean before I almost became dinner for a shark while ocean kayaking. Been back once on a yacht and went swimming off the Florida Key's and just couldn't enjoy it. I've been stabbed, sliced open, and hit with grenade shrapnel. Gotten over all of that to go back into the fray with no problems or hesitation. But never again will I try my hand at enjoying the ocean at a depth more than waist deep. At least then I can see it coming.

Riding my bike is great for stress (but gas prices are not helping), pumping some iron is also good 2 days a week, mountain bike when possible, I'm a chess player (good to learn how to stay focus for a few hours looking at the same thing), also like photography a lot, like to build electronic stuff (my sound system is home made) and... I'm looking to buy a guitar. Is that enough?

Trade CL. It will balance out.

About 200 yards offshore by the North Carolina Onslow area. I was cruising along, enjoying the waves and the fin just cut right by me with a large black body. Got out of the water with a quickness.

On days like today, nothing better than a few hours in the gym lifting heavy things.

Onslow? Former Marine? I was body surfing at Murtle Beach one time and saw (twice within 1/2 hr) good size sharks in the waves, within yards of me. Scared the heck out of me but the lifeguards said it was no big deal.

The first two pictures are my old hobby. The others are some of my current hobbies. And yes, I am in all the pictures and I am not the critter hanging upside down!

I was filmed at a performance in South Austin a bit ago. Not too shabby I think. Here's a vid for those interested.

Also, have you ever heard of the BMW ultimate test drive? Great way to contribute to to breast cancer research and and dog the living bajeezus out of some M badges.
