    I agree. Whether one likes SUP surfing or not, such regulation is a bad precedent. Let the lineup regulate itself. Riders with bad etiquette need to be educated/calibrated. Next will be laws against LBs, then other craft, etc. Lawyers.

    Like the one dude said, get in shape and get the right board for the conditions.

    Stop the madness .. MIS - thanks for bringing this up. I know you despise overbearing gov't control.

    This is unbelievable! Flippin' Landsharks! Say this in the most whiny voice possible, " I would like to pass a regulation so I can catch a wave". Freaken KOOK! Can you tell this pissed me off a little!

    You know this sh!t's getting out of hand if there's a group organizing in Hawaii. It's a shame this couldn't be all hashed out without lawyers, comment periods, etc...

    I encourage people to ride whatever the fark they want, but responsibly. A few weeks back it finally got to the point that i had to say something to a guy on an SUP. A buddy and I were the only guys on the peak, at a spot that is pretty much a sponge/SB wave, steep, fast, and hollow. These dudes were all over the lineup, back and forth, going on whatever they pleased. And they had no control of their boards.

    A few bad apples ruins it for the whole bunch.

    I'm gonna SUP w/ Cdog in the Cape one day.

    This is funny. I would not mess with that dude in the green tee shirt. He'd F any one of us up.

    So, at my home break they've technically banned SUP's, at least while life guards are on duty. There had been several collisions between SUP riders and surfers. No one is policing it so it's not a big deal...they still ride, but stay at the other end for the most part. I did almost get nailed by one who wasn't watching where he was going. And don't say it was my fault...I can't out paddle an SUP, though I tried like hell.

    I have not ridden an SUP, and will try not to for as long as I can paddle into a wave prone. But any regulations passed will be the start of the slippery slope to hell. Black balls, lifeguards with no balls, attorneys with brass balls. That clown should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a slow leaky boat.

    You know whats funny? This lawyer guy wants to ban SUP's because he isn't getting any waves. But if he is successful then those guys will just ride something else and still take all his waves. he's pretty much done surfing there for life.

    Indeed. I predominately surf a SUP, and as I've stated in other posts, the SUP surfers at my usual break for the most part have control and understand the line up. The problem, mostly, is the *newbies* that have no clue of the lineup and safety, nor "wave type" (admittedly, there does exist clueless wave hogs -- but they aren't exclusively on SUPs). They are like "groms" on large craft. Until they learn to surf, safely control their craft, and abide in the lineup decorum, they need to find and stay on an isolated peak.

    I had a situation the other day where I SUPer kept cutting in on me, trying to go left when I was already on wave and on a right. It was a matter of introducing myself, pointing out how this particular wave worked (i.e., it's a right), and where he should position himself. He thanked me and was not a problem for the remainder of the sesh.
