The Wave was a pretty good book. And anyone who rides Egypt at 100 feet gets the instant respect card from surfers and non surfers alike. Just posting some humor. My old man surfs an SUP. I take it out when its flat. Check out the schools of Strippers from a heightened perspective. Always good to be in the water, whatever your method is. No disrespect meant, just some humor. If you are out when its pumping, no matter what you are on, you better know how to handle it. Peace offering to SUPers! See you out there! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6JTmCuWFJc

man I love SUP's. Nothing better than watching some old kook rent one and try to charge. beating after beating after beating
Aside from all the dangers... I'm dying to get an SUP and cant understand how someone who loves the ocean wouldnt want one.. Whether for surfing the real small days, experimenting on medium to bigger days (at a lesser crowded spot) or just cruising around when its flat

Kinda just joking. Tried it once, it's not for me. For the money I'd rather have a kayak. Many more uses plus it's easier to carry a cooler
If there are waves I want a SURFboard.

I've transitioned from longboarding to SUP surfing over the last few years. I enjoy it as it allows me to catch more waves and link them up and the perspective you have standing when flat-water paddling. I don't get a hard time from anyone prone at my home break as I know how to handle the board in any kind of surf, call out incoming sets, don't hog the best set waves and in general show respect to everyone out in the lineup. I got into SUP a few years ago as my wife got into it and it allowed me to spend more time with her when the surf was flat. She's now getting into surfing her SUP as well, though I make sure that as she's learning she's nowhere near the lineup and stays out of the way of everyone. I think the problem a lot of people have with SUP is that it makes it a lot easier for the inexperienced to get out on the water and many of them don't know proper surf etiquette and/or simply can't handle the conditions. There are still days where I'll take out my fish or my longboard depending on conditions, but more often than not these days I'll reach for the SUP. Some of the new shorter boards that have come out in the last few years are a lot more maneuverable than the logs seen only a few years back. As a previous poster noted, ride what makes you happy, but have respect for others in the water.
