    +1. I could ride a skateboard when I was 5 so I guess that makes Tony Hawk a ***** compared to any kook who can manage to stand up for 3 seconds on a short board. I could ride a bike when I was 5 also so I guess that puts Lance Armstrong and all those X games bmxers in the same boat.

    What someone ride does not change the fact that they're an annoying wave hog.

    Surfers choose to surf, so their biased opinion should be taken with a grain of salt.

    There's "good" bodyboarding and "bad" bodyboarding, just like surfing.

    There's no question that surfboards and surfing are more advanced than bodyboards and bodyboarding, but there's something to be said for bodyboarding's low tech, minimalistic approach.

    I'm not big into airs on a bodyboard... kinda makes me laugh a little... legs all splayed out... swimfins flapping... ha!... but they can sure as he11 get deep! And THAT's cool.

    the person riding the wave gets respect based on how well they do it - regardless of the craft they choose
    watch "come hell or high water" you get new respect for bodysurfing
    watch mike stewart at pipe or stohr at southside & get new respect for bodyboarders
    watch wingnut at cloudbreak and get respect for longboarders etc.

    claiming you can judge a surfer by the craft they carry is racist

    Although i used to almost only bodyboard, i have started to enjoy surfing more. I still have respect for bodyboarding just enjoy one a little more then the other. On some of the much bigger days we have where the waves are a little steep and above my skill level, ill still take out a bodyboard just so i can still enjoy the waves.

    lol...that's some funny shyt.

    the bottom line....a waterman is a waterman. Around my way, if you're a wavehog you will get dealt with regardless of what you slide on.
