Thread: SUP Backlash T's
When 4 SUP'ers paddle out to a break with 4 people out and start taking every set wave like they own it then there is a problem. That's what's happening up in Maryland beaches and it sucks. There are definitely a couple of guys who are totally chill, and respectful and I've got no problem with sharing waves with them. When they start acting like they own the freakin' lineup and laugh as they steal waves from surfers it's another story.
Yea Johhny, I'd be pissed also. But look at it this way, it's not SUP's that's the problem it's the particular morons riding them. Those guys would probably be dbags no matter what surf craft they were riding or what sport they were in. There's always going be some people that "take" just because they can. Part of the reason our country and society is in the shape it's in.
Maybe THEY need to be reminded to surf with some Aloha.

What I really hate is when I'm out on my SUP and a bunch of SUPers who I dont know and are the newb/nonsurfer type, flock to where I am ! Its just as bad for me as it is for shorboarders.....
I completely understand the hate, and I fully understand that I have to earn respect from prone surfers who dont know me. But most of the time , especially with the young guys, they end asking me about my board and some actually want to try !!

I guess, no matter what you are riding, bet it SUP, Kayak, Longboard, shortboard, sponge, whatever, if you are
a) hogging all the waves
b) kooking out to the point of being dangerous (no surf etiquette, or choosing not to follow it)
You're going to piss some people off.
The problem is, more often than not, SUPs fall into one of those two categories.
Depending on where I am or who I'm with, I will often position myself on the "second peak" somewhere, or sit outside and take the biggest ones that can't be caught easily inside.
For me it's the view that gets me going. Like I said in my earlier post, I can be sitting out there with 10 guys on surfboards and still have a clear view of the horizon but the constant reminder that there is someone further out ready to pounce is the rub. It's like having a dog stairing at you while you eat. Even if you don't look at him you know he's there ready to steal your steak.
i was only kidding, I was really hoping someone would say with a butter knife hahaha. The test levels in here are ridiculous
