sh!t happens in the water, learn to wash off the anger, and stop bringing the hate back to the forums.
plus it looks like you could of dodged the kid, instead you kamikazed into him. ( prob trying to teach him lesson ) if the kid was persistently dropping in on you then i would agree with you, but you say he left after that, could of been an accident, take it easy next time.
would you have done the same thing to a chick? an old dude? a dude (or a chick) who was a lot bigger than you? if yes, then rock on. if no, you're just a bully who picks on groms...
The diving tackle was a bit ridiculous , you could of just kept cruising right around him,,,but hey ,whatever your trip is ,that's cool. I surf to relieve stress not to add to it.... If I had to review footage and present it to a panel of my "peers" to feel justified , then I'd consider that a wasted session .

Well right off the bat... Old dude no. Chick almost 100% no. A guy my.size or.smaller or.bigger yes.
But my knowledge of these kids Fcking up the lineup was my final decision on it. I think the real question is soo he pull that **** on me again or to anyone else?
well then you have your answer ... why ask us ? A potential violent altercation is the highlight of your session? Ok then...
I would have been pissed. You handled yourself well. You made the right decision. You can't whoop his ass, but you can exact revenge by crapping in his beach or putting a lock on his bike. Get creative and stay out of jail.
I used the word "Potential" ,,,
He was guilty of a "surfing etiquette violation " , you went to the next level by "taking him down" hope it was worth it.
If he went in and told the cops some old dude assaulted him in the water (which is what you did ) , do you think " He dropped in on me " Is going to fly ? ... no...
" In that instant I decide to chop is legs out and I told him if he wants to drop in on people to go to another beach (which is known for lawlesslness)....
This little **** as he's paddling back out tells me to go f off!!! lol. I mean part of me laughed but part of me wanted to kick his spaghetti armed ass into beach... which I would have been arrested for."
