    Guys, please . . .

    Can you please stop threatening to fight people over three-foot slop? This is the third time in a week that I've heard someone threaten violence on another surfer in the water during knee-to-waist-high conditions.

    That is all . . .

    Sincerely,
    Evan.

    I just don't get it. As watermen, I think we should be foremost looking after the safety of anyone in the water. To me that holds whether you like the person and what they're doing or not. Threatening violence in the water, I think, runs counter to all of those types of values.

    And besides that, who the hell cares? It's not like it's pumping and clean . . .

    These incidents were also at Lincoln at Long Beach. It's the middle of July. The most recent threat I overheard was today, a Sunday. So someone dropped in on you. There were upwards of 40 surfers in the area between the jetties. You're going to get dropped in on and people are going to be in your way. There's no way around it. Just shrug it off and deal with what comes with a crowded break. If you threaten someone over it, you're being a massive tool.

    Also, what idiot is going to assault someone on a crowded summer day in Long Beach? I don't particularly like police, and I wouldn't be the one to call them but . . . you're going to get arrested if you do that. The police patrol those beaches in swarms and you think some lifeguard's not going to call them in if you start **** in the water or even on the beach? Be real. The threats are so ****ing stupid . . .

    don't be surprised to see the morons screeching at one another when its small; the marginal conditions are when its the most like that, because when big and scary conditions keep the insecure kooks on the beach

    The root of the problem is that inexperienced surfers and the "soul surfer" 12 year old girls are in the part of line up where they should not be and experienced surfers don't go to end of the line up after they catch a wave-dudes are just cutting in front of everyone as if they are privileged. Throw in the overcrowding and you have a lot of tension that should not be.
    Crowds aren't getting any smaller, so just respect the rules--If you see a dude dropping a wave, pull off and when you catch your ride go to the end of the lineup.
