this is where you hit him, punch him in the jaw, cut his leash, and call him a kook. Then, approach him in the shower with 4 of your scariest buddies. Don't even bother telling him that yuppies like him need to stay off of your beach, because that would just be a waist of time.
wow the **** on this forum just makes me laugh.everyone so tough and a vigilante when they are surfing the internet.u got a problem with the kooks and bennys,do something when your in their face,dont wait to come home and go on the internet and tell everyone how much your life sucks.grow up people,i dont surf crowded spots.you know what i do,drive 5 miles up the fkn road!!,wheres theres noone out.if you go surfing crowded spots like that,then you are a kook,a benny,and you deserve to have fins slice through your calf muscles!!stfu already
mine was a point break reference, for those who thought I was serious... Great attitude cepraino, you are really going places!
Wow just got caught up on this thread. Sorry Nj but I see and understand what Dave is saying and I agree! While riding a wave and someone is scratching for the shoulder instead of going to the whitewater to duck dive which they should!!!! The rider should be able to aviod the collision if not and a collision happens yea the paddler is at fault but that doesnt help the riders board or bodily inury. So come on bro you dont ust plow someone over after they ruin your wave tell em what they should have done probably(this time of year) they dont know and if they do know.. My sessions this Spring have been awesome 3-6 guys all chill good surfers..I have had more incidents with aggro guys in the winter months beleive it or not!! Guess its where you surf.. So I found a good jetty that doesnt have an aggro crowd! Stoked!!
& i don't think anyone's saying that the rider should make no effort to avoid the paddler/buoy/kook who's in their way & just plow them over...that's a **** move no matter how you slice it. my point is that the rider shouldn't HAVE to make that effort...etiquette dictates that the paddler is the one on whom the initial impetus rests to avoid the potential collision. if the paddler fails to make any effort, or moves in a way that increases the likelihood of a collision, THEN the rider has to take steps. but it's on the paddler first & foremost.
