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!

that mangroves pic is delicious. First day of vacation. Throw on the new epicly radical neon boardshorts you bought at the quicksilver time square shop. Make sure the babes all have five toed water booties. Put that leash up around the knee, or even over the knee. Then.... SHRED IT UP! You are stand up paddle SURFING!

SUPs are more dangerous because they are bigger, weigh more, and are harder to control....
Yes it's way more dangerous to be in a lineup with one of those than a shortboard or even a longboard. Paddling one out in a crowded lineup is negligent and dangerous behavior for all but the most skilled...and there doesn't seem to be many of them on SUPs.
