    That was a little harsh... You drove him to delete the video. Not exactly staying above the weather

    Most people are not pro video editors or film makers. Why put such a high standard on someone making a gopro video of a session? Take it for what it is. I think they are actually easier to watch then average surfers getting filmed from the beach. You get to see how much better the pros are than the rest of us from the beach shots. One big crit I had was the inclusion of the shooters name with the poor victims.

    I would never delete a video based on somebody's criticism. Yes, it was shaky, yes the music may suck. But I woke up Saturday morning thinking it may have not been the best thing to include the killer and his mother in the list of people I was thinking of while surfing that day....

    Sorry if I offended anyone.

    Oh, and I never try to justify a swell based on filming for the love of it. The only way to justify a swell is to surf it, that is if you have the means, the capability, and the balls/ovaries to do it.

    Glad to hear it, Ryan. It looks like I will be living vicariously through your videos (& others) as I work through a surf-related injury I suffered on thanksgiving. Please keep sharing!
    & not to turn this into a political debate, but I think that thinking about the shooter & his mother is an absolutely appropriate thing to do. We have to think about him, but not to an extent that overshadows the victims, in order to begin to understand what drove him to do such a thing & why his mother was unable or unwilling to do something tok prevent it. As long as we remember the victims more than the killer, it's ok. The perpetrators of past mass killings have gotten far too much attention, becoming infamous rather than forgotten.
    Climbing off my soapbox now, thanks again for posting & reposting your videos! Always fun to watch!
