    Oh hellz yah, mayn!

    There's a lot of SUPs where I'm at. Most of them don't know what they're doing, but you can't really tell them that because all of them look like John Cena.

    Last week at my spot maybe three other people tops and I was by myself most of the time. This weekend maybe a thigh high wave every twenty minutes and 20++ people on it. If a whale farted in china these idiots would paddle for it.

    i got hassled by a "local" this weekend at my own damn beach! What a rough weekend. Waves were decent where I was. The bigger sets were closin out but the E swell looks to hold for awhile. Changed alot with the tides but there were alot of fun ones.

    There was about 6 or 7 of us out at one jetty. SUP guy comes and sits outside the lineup... It didn't bother me so much until he was flailing on the inside. That board will definitely do some damage if it hits you.

    I was out yesterday morning second one in the water at this particular spot that can get damn Kooky in the summer. Uncrowded, not great, but this lady, paddles right out to me. I mean there is a whole wide open beach of beach break, and not good at that. She was nice enough and chatty. Actually she was very nice, I'd say mid-40s, and just relearning how to surf. So I was trying to give her advice and called her into a wave and paddled for it. The wave overtook her and she pearled, board in the air. She came up and lost the sun glasses she was wearing. I think she said they were $400 glasses, titanium frame... I kind of felt bad for calling her into a wave, then I remembered, no one should wear $400 in the line up. Summer is here, I guess we have to deal.

    Ya,I have no problems with SUP's or even kayacks for that matter but they just have to know the rules.Are sport is different then alot of other activities because theres so much entailed .Its not like your stepping on a field and kicking a ball or stepping on a court and throwing it in a hoop.The only way to correct the problems out there is to explain it to someone who doesn't know.
