    I was out one day last winter and the waves were about chest high and perfect, 100 yd. lefts, with maybe 8 guys out. The only guy to catch the set waves was one greedy SUP wavehog. There would be one perfect wave every 10 minutes or so and this guy would always make it back out by the time the next set wave arrived. Not one time would this idiot let one slip by so the other guys could enjoy the beautiful day.

    From now on, I don't think I could resist the urge to just drop in on these guys. They really don't deserve respect.

    Judging by that video, good old Miki seems about as rude as the local SUP guys.

    you gotta remeber that miki went from surfin with only a handful of fellow surfers to surfing with a hundered if not more people everyday thanks to people like Gidget and Frankie Avalon with there surf movies making surfing a mainstream thing. This is why in the mid 60's miki left Malibu and moved around the world finding places to surf alone . When they got crowded he moved on. Miki was the origonal reble in surfing. He payed for his travels with credit cards that were in other alises he had . He did it his way and only his way . He wouldnt conform to whats cool . He was cool everyone wanted to be or use miki for his stardome.

    Surfing isnt a group hug . If you are lookin for something like that football season is about to start

    Before his time ????????

    Dora died on January 3, 2002 at the age of 67 from pancreatic cancer. I say he had a good run since the average male in america dies at age 78

    He died before his time. The sixties are the new forties.

    you gotta remember that medicine wasnt advanced as it is today and he spent most of his time in third world countries where the only time they know you sick is when your dead.

    And for miki being rude well here is a exert from him

    When accused of being ruthless, Dora told Surfer, "It's a lie. I'm vicious. We're all pushing and shoving, jockeying for position, and if I get the wave first -- if I'm in the best position -- then I feel I deserve it."

    In my time (which isn't over yet as far as I can tell) I've "Miki'd" a few shoulder hoppers here and there. I'm not proud of it, but if and when it becomes necessary. . . well. . . it's necessary. I don't pilfer backpacks on the shore like Dora did though. That's just wrong.
