    True about the Quickie Pro, it would have been a 10 pointer and a heat winner.

    Just got back from the beach.
    The surf looked dangerously placid.

    Sammie and I went for a walk on the beach and the lifeguards told us to get off the beach due to the tsunami, I asked the lifeguard did he know the symptoms or calling card of when a tsunami is about to hit?
    He said yes, the water recedes.
    Thats correct Mr Lifeguard but did you also know that after the water recedes, you have roughly 45mins before the wave hits.
    Mr lifeguard said no, he didn't know that.
    We continued our walk.
