    If you give respect, you'll earn respect.

    actually it is, but i should have added 'if there are a bunch of guys out at one peak and empty breaks all around them, don't paddle out where they are'.

    SUP- I have a fried who would charge pipe on a SUP and I have surfed with people who call sets, catch one, and paddle on down to the next sand bar. No problem. BUT... the majority SUCK but think they rip because they can hog the peak on a 1 foot day. To me the average SUP rider is that fat guy who found logging even too challenging or isn't physically able to "grovel". They are a fair-weather bunch who usually stick to... the most crowded spots. Maybe they suck at golf? Maybe they bought the SUP because it was more expensive than the log. Who knows. usually that I'm still cool, right? Look at this thing! crowd. The type to strap it on the roof of their range rover.

    The idea to simply respect the rules of the road and there will be no problems is great if you trust those around you. Unfortunately, when I see someone on a log or especially a SUP, I see it as a warning for my own safety because they could likely be a kook and ditch that board right on top of me. Please, prove me wrong. The world will be a better place if you do. I only have this bitter stance because of all of the human hazards that I have had to deal with resulting from this SUP boom. Long boarders have been a damn hazard as well. You guys who rip on them, more power to you.

    dont get me started about body boarders...
    Spot on. Thanks for saving me a response.

    not by the ASP:

    Article 77: Board Requirements
    77.01 Length is minimum 9 feet measured from the nose to tail on the deck of
    the surfboard. Width dimensions to total minimum 47 inches aggregate.
    This is the total of the widest point, plus the width 12 inches up from the
    tail and the width 12 inches back from the nose.
    77.02 Traditional long board Malibu shape to be used with use of multiple fins
    and channels allowed.

    I have said this before it's the standing up, way on the outside and the pacing that gets to me. I don't care if your great or suck just don't paddle back and forth and stay standing the whole time. I go surfing to get away from everything. Even on a crowded day with a bunch of surfers you still can get that solitude with a clear view of the horizon. A middle aged guy on a sup standing between you and the sets ruins it.

    what about the alternative? I am pretty new to surfing but try not to be too much of a kook, understanding the lineup, knowing my limitations, setting up on crappier, less crowded points, etc. BUT I would maintain that if I happen to be catching more waves and some "local"/"ripper"/non-kook wants to paddle over to where I am, I am going to give alot less leeway. Case in point: I was surfing in december in Ocean City, NJ around 5th street. Many jetties with multiple peaks, none that great and not many people out. I was well away from a guy and his boogie boarding g/f. I caught a couple but was still trying to get my timing down. Dude paddles aggresively over and clearly intends to cut in front for a wave. I didnt care so i sat up and didnt even paddle for it but he cut so close that he hooked his leash on my foot and wiped. He then launches into the classic "locals rule and yuppy insects should go back to the valley" speech. I had surfed in OC and other places with better surfers than this guy with no problems but found myself being interogated about where I lived since he could walk to the beach.

    can some of the folks on here who seem to espouse some of this attitude please explain WTF is up with the locals thing? If I buy a place in OC, do i get to attack the renters?

    I want to understand because usually i leave the water with a smile whether i "ripped" or sucked ass. that day I just wanted to pound that dude and didnt enjoy the surfing.

    thanks
