    I can tell how everyone will vote in the upcoming election by what the comments are. It breaks down into two groups:

    1. You take any wave you feel like it, and 'f' everyone else. It's not your fault they are out of shape/have the wrong equipment/not as good

    2. You are not a wave hog because you feel it's not fair to others.

    Really interesting actually -

    Meh...ride whatever the hell the wave calls for. Nothing uglier than a dude hopping up and down on a 1 foot roller on a short board trying to "rip." at the same time, nothing worse than some log kook sitting ten feet out and blowing head high waves cause he can't ride a shortie. If you were taking a few and letting a lot roll by than who cares? People who get angry about surfing are complete tools--go surf

    If I'm on my longboard I don't mind a Gidgett wave once in a while especially if its small but if it's chest high or bigger and you drop in on me your gonna get warned. Keep it up and I'm gonna do my best to shove my 9'2 thru the back of your skull, just saying.

    I know exactly what your thinking but the telling thing about your post is the way you framed your comment. Only a person from one particular political party would word it that way. I would bet the nice guys are voting the exact opposite of what your thinking.

    Now don't get me wrong I let plenty of waves run past me... and I only accounted for 1 wave of basically a 3 or 4 wave set...
    I could feel the angst building up in the guys on the inside.... but hey next, take the appropriate board and you'll have a better time.
    My understanding of the rule is that to have the right of way from the outside, it is necessary to be fully up and riding on the wave--not merely paddling--before the wave gets close enough to anyone else for them to get it. If someone else is in the path of the peak, and you cannot be into the wave--up and riding--before that, then you do not have right of way. The wave belongs to the person at the peak, or closest to the breaking part of the wave. One needs to be very far outside to have enough room to be fully into the wave before anyone else can get it. Was this the case?

    yea I don't understand why this is ok... Like said in a previous post. What if a guy on a SUP paddled out 10 feet past you and did the same thing to you. All day longgg. Would that still be ok????? Funny how everyone's avoided that post. Like this one probably will be too.

    There was no catching these waves out past where I was sitting. I was also the only one taking these waves clear across the beach.

    What does how far you go have anything to do with it?? You always go farther with a longboard regardless of the conditions. And a SUP can always catch waves further out then a longboard. I've seen guys ride waves with SUPs all the way out, and finish their rides before the wave even breaks. Or even if a sup couldn't a wavejet could. Or what if it was just a longboarder with a much stronger paddle then you. It's besides the point what equipment they are using. The point is if someone was doing the same to you because they could catch them further out would that be ok?

    By the way, if you think that you are better then these guys on their shortboards "blowing it" then think again. They are the ones trying to progress. Guys like you have a good time at the expense of others, and in spite of progression. You ride a 3 foot wave on a longboard and hardly exert yourself throughout the entire session. You will never get better like this. Life is not always about having the most fun in the moment; Sometimes it is about longterm progression. "Happiness is neither virtue or pleasure, nor this thing or that, but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.", William Butler Yeats... Learn to include the happiness of others in your decision making. Despite what you think, guys like you are a problem in this sport.

    I'd say about 35% tony kornhieser 65% glenn beck? I mean youre talking about sports and athleticism but you have a high amount of hate and discontent in your rhetoric and maybe some cloaked fear of being burned by a longboarder. You should go into radio or get yourself a tv show or something... You're pretty dramatic. I bet you could make yourself fake cry talking about surfing to show you're more dedicated and love the sport, no dammit the way of life! better and more than anyone.

    Idsmashh do longboarders owe you something?
