    You must not live on the east coast, because right now I wish I owned an SUP. It would be nice to have something for all the flat days, which make up 50% of the year.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    he was some rich guy dropping in on my home wave. Not that his financial situation matters, but he had a nasty attitude.

    The problem was he dropped in on a ten foot wave at the bay. Not safe at all. He was also going to nosedive too. Would it have been better with a surfboard? Yes.

    I got stitches and ended up surfing limahai all by myself this afternoon.

    "Eye for an Eye" vs. "The Golden Rule"

    Yank & I (and others) actually agree on something! This time it was you getting the short end of the stick (pun intended), but next time it might be you accidentally dishing out the pain, in the water or elsewhere. As a guy who's made the "eye for an eye" (pun intended) mistake many, many times, I can honestly say that it has never improved the situation or made me feel even an ounce better about what happened. On the other hand... what's always made me feel better is dropping my anger and my pride and forgiving someone for their mistake... hard to do, I know... but worth it.

    P.S. next time you see me foaming at the mouth and streaming obscenities at the local kiteboarders... please remind me that I said this!

    What to do? Shake hands, forgive & keep moving. Be a man, not some puss who's screaming about a lawsuit.

    How did America get to the point where someone owes everybody for anything gone wrong?

    Stuff happens. Life ain't fair. Get over yourself.
