Would it have been better if they weren't in a SUP? Sorry about your eye and stuff but I would bet it was an accident and they happen. Wrong place at the wrong time. He seems to be doing the responsible thing and taking care of your expenses and his insurance is there if you require more attention. Wanna sue him? Why?
I think you should try to get surfing banned all together. That'll show him. And if you weren't surfing in the first place you would have never been hurt.
Get done being mad and get over it.... At least you got to surf today. Try focusing on how good your day was before your collision.
Amen. I don't get why morons always hate on long boards and SUPs. There is a board for every condition. When we have 0-1 ft days, I want an SUP. A little larger, and I want a long board. Ride what you like!
Sounds like this SUP'er is an idiot in the water but a decent guy on the beach... trying to pay up for his mistake. Maybe he's learned a lesson, and won't do that again.
What to do?... If you can't afford it, or if you don't have your own insurance, I guess you could ask him to have his insurance pay. Otherwise... sh!t happens. I've had my fair share of stitches from jerks who couldn't keep control of their boards.
We need to ban these awful wepons.They are huge and catch waves left and right. Capable of mowing down multiple surfers on any given line up.
When did surfers become such pussies? Afraid of a fiberglass board while they surf waves that can end their lives. Like someone else said, let's just ban surfing all together. It's obviously too dangerous.
Sorry u got lumped. That always blows. At least the dude didn't try to turn it around on you and say some lame sh*t like "it's not pipe bro". Hopefully he learned to be way more careful and in control. It's enough that he's taking financial responsibility so be happy cuz that's rare. There is a big differance between Laird coming at you on a sup versus some lard coming at you on a sup
