well if you're gonna stay and surf there, dropping in on someone is not the best technique. A few formative years at first street taught me to sit right on top of the breaking wave as close to the peak as possible then..take off behind him...call him off...shred behind him and make sure you push him to far to the shoulder that he dorks out...when he calls you out for being a d!ck tell him to stop shoulder hoping... lastly prepare for a
4.insult or at the least
5. an intelligent discussion on surfing etiquette
If your not ready for 1-4 then surf somewhere else
Can't get much better than this. As others have said there may come a point where you have to back it up or back down and run away. that's your call.
If he is on a soft top he is a kook!!!! Get you and your buds to double team him if he is persitent. One can block while other rides. Have a nice chat with him in the parking lot. Go home and get more shortboarders and even it out. Surfs Up!
i hate that. ill be sitting in my spot and a longboarder will come over after seeing the sandbar going off. but he will sit 10-15 feet farther out where i am sitting. i literally cant do anything about them sitting there because i will always end up dropping in on them. but the worst part is that they continually go right back to their spot and pretend like they havent gotten a wave yet
