    Crowded line ups

    the better you are at surfing = the amount of people in the line up

    Ride the vehicle that gets it done. Not all SUPs are bad. Surfing for 24 yrs and SUP'in for 3. Help the noobs out by let them know either way about dropping in, snakeing and Hoggin, the nice way or the old school way (yell). they will get the hit. Everyone wants to be nice and not get involved.

    If peeps are sitting on the inside and in the way, tell them to move if there hoggin then have some words. Yes SUP are wave catchin machines and there is going to be a good collection of older noobs out there but they have to learn some way.

    Have fun and give a wave but don't let them snake

    97 days till no more Guards

    i agree w/ half of your statement; ride the vehicle that gets the job done. if it's a loggin' day, log it up. if it's a shortboard day, go shred.
    that said, i disagree that not all SUPs are bad (in the line-up). i've had exactly 1 positive experience sharing a line-up w/ SUPers, & that was earlier this spring. it was a small day w/ a high-ish tide at my local, so the waves were kinda just rolling thru to the inside section. you'd catch the wave out the back, cruise & trim to the inside, then get up on the nose & tuck in for the close out speed section on the inside...good fun, really! there was no one else out besides me & these 2 SUP guys. i chose a peak well away from them, but, being able to cover so much ground, they ended up briefly sharing my peak from time to time. & it wasn't bad. they were competant (for janitors) & friendly enough. the funny thing was, i caught way more waves & was getting into them sooner on my 9'6" log than they were on their SUPs!
    but as i said, that's the only positive experience i've had w/ SUPs in the line-up. halfway around the world, i got hit my an out of control jackass on one in the maldives (he was not riding a wave, just paddling through the line-up. i was sitting, waiting my turn at the peak...); i've seen groms get run over by them, & i've seen them exhibt the poorest of poor behavior, hogging waves & dropping in.
    i think SUPs are fine tools for working out on the water...i'd even consider getting one myself for just that reason. but i don't think that they belong in the average jersey line-up (cue response mentioning laird, et. al...)

    as far as crowded line-ups go, learn to body surf! there's a LOT more room out there when you lose the board sometimes...

    I love when the clean up set wave doubles up.....all the clueless get caught inside and get swept....if I'm on it, I let out a long hoot or a loud yeeehaw and watch their eyes bug out like a cartoon....good stuff. I saw a 2 person kayak get smacked by a set wave,.....solid 2ft created havoc and panic at the same time....classic.
