Did you really post this?! Did you just type "brother-en", and attempt to give a surfer's history lesson? I wear a leash out of respect for other surfers (Kooks included) and other's enjoying the ocean. Sounds like you have watched too much "bra-boys" and corny a$$ surf flicks. Everyone gets tired of some kook getting in the way, but it happens. If someone is obviously out to disrespect others, well things work themselves out. You are "CALLING OUT" people on a surf forum?!! The same people that surf? Usually don't post, but these usual tough guy posts are pathetic. Your board is going to hit the wrong person one day, and you might be looking to "call the cops." Hopefully the other 966 posts of yours do not consist of crying......
Your turn......show your "tough-guy" internet skills! Freakin tool
I totally agree jtblue18 and are amazed that this kind of inane thinking is from an adult. Here's a thought-do dawn patrol if you want to avoid newby's.
Holy hell, some of you are not people persons at all. You can stand up without having to physically assault some dude. Also, quit hating on new surfers. Yeah I understand the summer surfers (which even to me are annoying as hell. I've been in baggies when it was 63 degrees. If you only surf when its 75 plus then gtfo. I don't understand the desire to harm others. If it's a crowded spot, wear a leash. If not, screw it. It's not that big of a deal to start raging on a forum over. There will always be kooks, summer surfers, and people who generally get in the ****ing way. Take this from a new surfer's perspective...if you find too many people in your way, move further down on the break. There's plenty of places to catch waves.
Relax, this is the NOYA thread, don't take anything you see seriously, it's a freaking zoo of a thread, have fun!
I am with Lee. It seems like it is not just surfing that is going through a "pussification" but the whole country. I know I will be accused of old fartism here but it WAS different when I learned. (late 70s, early 80s). You didn't dare go anywhere near the older, seasoned guys. It was like showing up at a Pagans MC run on a Vespa. You had to fall in with your own pack of buddies and as you got older you took over. It was fun, it was safe, it was REGULATED by those in the water. No F%cking lawsuits or cops.
Now, everyone wants to claim their right to surf no matter their age, skill level, or type of craft. Is change always a good thing?
Yeah Buddy - well said. Best thread I've seen in a while.
