    Read the entire thread! And this guy was dropping in on people on purpose! I understand accidents, but these were no accidents.....and save the melodramatic crap. I served in Iraq, and it's the last thing I want to hear about...stay on topic.

    SUP guys can really get under my skin.
    I ride my 6-4 shortboard on anything head-high or greater, but love to take the 10' SUP out on small clean days. I know the SUP crowd I surf with always tries to stay far away from the lineup. For one, we can catch a lot more waves on a SUP so there is no need to hang in the sweet spot or compete with other surfers. And secondly, the last thing any of us want to do is have to ditch our boards near other surfers. But if you have specific instances of SUPers not being respectful of other surfers, I'd like to know so I can be on the lookout for it. Thanks.

    Dude, many of the local surfers here have lived and surfed in other places. I lived in Hawaii for 5 yrs and surfed double overhead North Shore regularly. I've hit the bottom at Sunset and been tore up. I've dealt with localism at Makaha. I lived in Cali, Fl, and on the East Coast and surfed all those places in all conditions. Also, many local surfers take surf trips and experience different conditions on a regular basis. I've also lived in land-locked areas so I'm thankful for the opportunity to surf whatever waves I can get.

    I did the same thing when I moved back to TX from HI -- actually, I left my boards with friends in HI! But since then I've lived in FL and on the East coast and now that I'm back in TX again, I decided to just stop complaining and start surfing. It's what you make of it and it's better than NOT living near the ocean.

    True that man. Try living landlocked for a couple years, that sucked. As for keeping your boards in storage and *****in about Texas surf, well keep your boards in storage. As for "50 degree water" and how bad a$$ you are, you actually sound like a tool. Please don't surf in Texas, you will help all of us out guy.

    Plenty of fun (50 degree water) waves in the winter here in Texas. Rarely overhead... but if you complain about offshore chest to head-high waves in Texas, then quit surfing because you're a kook. Go troll somewhere else

Just got back from puerto rico, and before i went i checked out dif spots and how the locals where and all I every read was how bad localism was well i went and didnt have a single problem and this is coming from a white guy paddling in to a line up full of ricans. know your place and respect

    Corpus is a bit more aggressive than the Upper Coast, but packs a juicier wave.

    Had an episode of bad luck wiping out close to the take off zone on a crowded day and getting yelled at, but whatever...kinda wonky. Same guy wiped out 5 minutes later in the same spot.

    lots of talented surfers but doesn't hold the crowd as well as other beaches in TX.

    Plus on a crowded day everyone hides behind the little jetty at packery to escape the monster current. Surfside it's not.

    If we don't try the right-of-way and behave...we all will loose it. Plus you don't want to end up in JAIL!
