I need advice for this problem I've got...it's personal

Postby splatnikGanglion » Tue Jan 26, 2016 8:51 pm

Ok, I've got this problem. Several of my friends have taken up foilboarding but I don't have a derogatory term for it yet. I know, the whole thing is super embarrassing...

Could you help me figure out what the proper derogatory term is? Here are examples from other genres:

kiteboarders → teabaggers
skiers → dicks on sticks
boogie boarders → speedbumps
SUPers → sea sweepers
rollerbladers → fruit-booters
etc...

Please help!

How about FOIL-BORING. I have zero desire. I like feeling the waves and water.

Q-What's the difference between a foilboarder and a vacuum cleaner?









A-You can change the Dirt bag on a vacuum cleaner

hey guys, please don't disrespect foilers like that. I own a foil board and go out on it a lot. And it is very offensive to see people calling us derogotory names. Thank you for your consideration.
