    I am guessing that matches most celebrity surfing personalities. I heard G. Mac is an arsehole as well. Doesn't change the fact that there is nothing wrong with riding an SUP.

    Hey anytime mang. In all reality my statement was tongue in cheek and honestly I have no problem with what people choose to believe provided it doesn't harm others. But you're still the man.

    church= a group of Christians who come together regularly to worship, to learn, to serve God and others,and to pray for each other and help meet each others needs.
    So if we swapped a few words in there, we could stretch the definition of church to include this very forum(and obviously the ocean itself)

    I was actually considering jumping in the fray, but I'm concerned my post could be as lengthy as a Pauline epistle.. but, what the heck, here's an abbreviated version of whats on my mind..

    Perhaps I'll throw out a few questions to ponder:
    1. What is the Gospel (or Good News)? Why is it Good News?
    2. Is there a Biblical mandate for it to be proclaimed? If so, what does this entail? What does this not entail? In other words, what means should be used to communicate it, and what means should not? Note: I realize a "Biblical Mandate" only applies to those who believe. It also makes sense that any message needs to be communicated in some fashion.

    One other thought. The New Testament suggests that the Gospel is an offense. Why is this so? I have thoughts on this: It proclaims there is a God, which forces divine accountability upon us, it proclaims man as failing short of the divine standard, and unable to rectify this situation by his own means, and thus put in us in position to depend on "foreign aid", which ruffles our pride. There are probably other reasons.

    The big problem, which I regret is when Christians themselves become the offense and stumbling block. The message and faith itself is difficult enough, without hypocrisy in the way. It grieves me when I hear stories like what DPSUP experienced, which certainly would leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth. Which is quite unfortunate.

    When people have such a negative experience, how then can they possibly "Taste and see that the Lord is good"?

    Peace, Bro's & I hope everyone gets a lil' swell..
    Nice post CapeCod, you're always welcome in the lineup round these here parts. I'm sorry my story grieves you, but never fear, it didn't keep me from having a belief in God, because I certainly do, but I don't fit the Christian stereo type by any means. I'm a sinner if there ever was one HAHA, and having had that experience, it opened my eyes to how others can take things a bit too far, fanatical is a word, but it's more than that, it's creepy LOL I use to attend church, but never felt like I fit in. I have nothing in common with most of the people there, and it's very "clickish" for a lack of better words. I don't find that environment my cup of tea. So nowadays I paddle out in the ocean, find a spot to myself, have some time to reflect, and then I go on to have an inspired session. Hope my posts didn't offend you.

    I own an SUP so i'm an assclown? You could tell me that to my face and then we could see who's the assclown, how's that sound there tough guy? I and many others who SURF also own an SUP, around here it's quite normal actually, as they are great to cross train with, as well as go fishing from, and from time to time sure I might ride a wave on it, but it's not my primary mode of wave riding, but you didn't deserved that explanation. Anytime man, anytime....

    I don't care what you ride, as long as you show respect. Some of the better surfers around here have been known to break out the SUP, even on bigger days.

    I believe it, Brew, whether people want to accept it or not, having one will make you a better surfer, or better yet, better watermen. It strengthens your core and legs so much it's ridiculous. All that time spent standing / balancing makes your sea legs stronger and stable. When you switch to a prone board and pop up to your feet, your solid and on really good days your legs don't get tired from riding wave after wave because your so use to long periods of standing / balancing that's it's nothing.

    It rarely works out in practice. Consider that the SUP rider surely must be aware that most of the surfers in the lineup are bummed when they show up, because it actually does impact surfing to have someone on such a substanially different watercraft in the lineup. I personally would feel like I was being disrespectful just by showing up and doing something that I KNEW diminished their enjoyment, much like i wouldnt want a kayak or ski puttering around in the lineup no matter how much the operator tried to show respect. I get on a sup once in a whlie, but i could never hover over a lineup of surfers on one knowing the impact it has. To each his own though. They have every right to be in the ocean, and in a lineup.

    Never in crowds, it's just not worth it, for lots of reasons
