I have to admit that I went back and forth on this subject... not on if I would do it again. but if it was the right or wrong thing to do.
Im mixed on it. It was wrong for the obvious reason that I might have gotten injured.... def. not worth it.
But it was right in that this kid is part of a group that blatantly disreguards the etiquette of surfing at anyone else's peril. So what, we collided. He took his act to a different beach, and when he finally paddled back over an hour or so later, he wasnt dropping in on people.
Its funny how the most aggressive and confrontation responderes to this post are the people saying that dropping in is just part of surfing. I have a news flash... its not right and if you have an opportunity to correct it, take it.

Just because it's not on youtube doesn't mean it's not true Fitzy . It wasn't the first time he had got into it with people. He said it was a dumb thing to do, but I think it's only because he got caught and actually had to pay ( he has sought conflict since so ??? ) . He didn't "do time" just overnight in county.
I've been surfing since '79 Fitz... all over ... you don't think I've seen true localism , fights, vandalism.. Pffff...

To each his own, but it would take something pretty serious for me to jump into another guy who dropped in on me. Your mad because he put you in a bad position, so to counter that, you go ahead and put yourself in one..? What happens if that kid/dude/guy/whatever actually got hurt somehow? What if you did? I don't know, just doesn't seem worth it on a loggin' day to potentially make things way worse. Treat those how you wish to be treated. meh.

You suck and he did you a favor.
No damages are needed for battery. That is just a volitional or intentional act to cause harmful or offensive contact. For example, spitting on someone could be deemed battery.
The point is, be careful. Even acts that seem harmless are prosecutable under the law.
Where I surf, it is often crowded and the groms and others cuss at people and drop in on them all the time. A simple "F Off" usually corrects the problem, but I have also seen it escalate to fisticuffs.
Great post btw. I bet you didn't expect such a reaction.
