    A lot less people than where, 1st street? Those piers always seemed crowded to me.

    As for the guy diving off his board into the face of the wave, I found it odd. He did it every time he duck dived. To be fair to him he was pushing the board completely underwater by thrusting with...

    The only time I ditch my board is when it's huge, usually in the winter, and more than likely no one else is anywhere near me unless I paddled out with them. I admit you might lose your board and...

    I body board so duck diving is a little different for me than for stand up surfers. It's still extremely important on a big day to be able to paddle as hard as you can into that breaking wave and...

    No I agree with him, I Just wouldn't have bothered to say what he said.

    It wasn't 7 feet on this swell in VA. That's just crazy talk. Maybe there were a few bomb outside sets like that, but we...

    It really does boil down to skill. It is without question harder to stand up on a surf board and ride a wave than it is to bodyboard. It's not quite the same as skiing vs snowboarding. Surfing...

    Sometimes it is really big and closing out, verging on unridable.

    I guess in the sense of fairness and decency it wouldn't have been right to lie and say that picture was from VA. I figured someone would call bs to be honest! Hence it having been in jest.

    Were you south of the inlet? That looks considerably bigger than where I was in town. It was 2-3 feet over head on the bigger sets, probably head high on the smaller ones.

    In my opinion, that picture is a few feet overhead, not an 11 foot face. The guy is probably 5 foot tall from toes to top of his head the way he is hunched down a bit with his knees.
