A bad day of surf is always better then a raise or awesome day at work. I wish more people would come to realize the ocean should be a place for relaxation and happiness and a sanctuary to make peace with.. Yea Im probably gonna be called a kook for this but at the end of the day Im the one enjoying every moment of life and living without regrets...peace to yall and go enjoy that surf
    So this is the whole story? The bber didn't drop in on him multiple times? All that peace and nirvana stuff is all good but what happens when somebody gets in the way of that?

    Drop in on me once, I don't say anything--just buzz by you with inches to spare on the next wave while you are paddling out.

    Drop in on me twice, I say something.... Nice and civilized.

    Drop in on me three times and I will hassle the ever-living chit out of you. You usually get out of the water by this point because there are only a hand full of people who can out-paddle me--and you're not one of them. Plus I've probably yanked your leash a couple times by this point.

    If you paddle out, are courteous and friendly yet very much a beginner--I will give you tips, call you into waves and possibly even block for you a couple times depending on how crowded it is.

    In short, what goes around comes around. No need for a "group hug" but also no need to be a 8=========D. Remember, NO ONE OWES YOU ANYTHING!

    Shoulder hoppers?.......Breaking a major rule dropping in at all........straight BS......only if its your buddy, at your spot, on a crappy tanker day (and even then the pay gesture deserves payback).....if you travel, you'l learn real quick or pay the consequences.....

    Well yea he dropped in on him once but the kid also looked like he came from Tennesee and had no idea what he was doing so yea thats probably what caused the fiascal considering I was paddling out when it happened

    haha totally agree!
