    Uhh...Mike Stewarts Pro Bodyboarding anyone? I hate both bodyboarders and surfers equally.

    It is just funny reading all this crap on boadyboarding and surfing....and even the short boarders making jokes on us longboarders!

    First, you can't sit here and tell me that at some point in your life (may have been when you were really young) you have never been on a boadyboard and loved every minute of it! Boadyboarding is something to do when the swell is a steep drop. I see more bodyboarders make it out and have fun on a sloppy big day then I do surfers....most guys I see out there get worked while the spongers and launching off the lip cause they can make it!

    Second, unless you have road a longboard....you really don't know the enjoyment of it. I tell you now, I would take my 8'10 on a knee high day and work less than what I see some of these shortboarders....and all for what, a 2 second ride. On a log, you can catch such a small wave and still get a nice ride from it! And guess what, WE DON'T WORK AS HARD TO CATCH A WAVE!

    And now I see it coming...."You longboarders steal all the waves"! Well, sorry that I am riding a 3 inch thick board that is like a boat on the water! Don't get all emotional when I catch a wave outside and get on it before you do....

    I think everyone is missing the concept still....and as many have said in this thread....we are all out there to enjoy the water and have a good time! What is the problem weather your on a sponge, a short or longboard, or just out enjoying the water? Enjoy what mother nature gives us and stop acting like a bunch of little babies!

    i had a longboard for 5 years and rode it periodically and never liked it. too boring IMO. personally I'd rather sponge than longboard but to each his own as long as they follow etiquette.

    But we can all surf. Obviously given if you have an injury that prevents you from surfing, that doesn't count... but most bodyboarders can surf and surf well! We just choose not to! So keep trying...

  7. I like surfing with body boarders because I know that I can sit deeper and catch everything. They are also much more susceptible to shark attacks. Way to take two for the team.

    I watched some kids body surfing, hand boarding and boogie boarding at 10-12' beach break on Oahu and it was the most impressive surfing I've ever witnessed. Its not what you surf but that you surf.

    It depends on how fast you can paddle, period.
