Also, ditch the go pro. makes me want to drop in on you too.
To the OP
Watched your video a couple times, you both took off at nearly the same time, but he was deeper...so your in the wrong. But it's a learning process, he was far enough away from you, that you didn't cause him to bail or worse, cause bodily injury. I would say your fine, if the situation ever arises again, as soon as you realize someone is deeper, just pop back off the wave...no harm, no foul.
as for Sunny Garcia, I think he is a damn good surfer, but an immature hothead. You fight another man mano e mano, but you don't beat up somebody else's kid. Just my $.02.
"That would be a waste of time. We're just gonna Fu*k you up"
lol warchild FTWQuote:
If I were there it'd go something like this...
well your on a longboard way out and he was shortboardin closer in maybe there were a lot of longboarders hoggin the break and he figured it was his turn for a wave
Can't really tell from the video to give any opinion, but just want to point out if it hasn't been already, that anyone with a Go Pro on their board is likely to be given hassle. Unless you are really good, then people will respect you.
But being new to surfing and having a Go Pro on your board is almost identical to dropping in on the most respected surfer in the lineup. lol.
