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.
    I am not bummed with the dudes I know out here that SUP. They are out there with me and we take our turns on waves. It may be different in the crowded areas, but we have a long beachfront with plenty of spots. Even on a busy day here, there are only a couple SUP guys and maybe 10 surfers.

    I have never seen or surfed with an SUPer who had any clue so maybe that's where my animosity comes from.

    Understandable, I get frustrated with the noobs who try it out around here from time to time, I almost got ran over by one not too long ago at the Inlet, I was on my short board, he was on the SUP, and the guy came within an inch of my head, so I get it. If you ever want to see someone operate one with skill and etiquette, come on down and I'll show you how it's done. You'll learn a new appreciation i'm sure, and I'll make sure to call you into a few set waves too, not that you need any help i'm sure, but I don't mind throwing a bone here and there, with the view we get we can see them coming before anybody else and can see more clearly where they'll break. But honestly man, these days I just haven't been all that into it, been digging on the LB and Coil too much to bother with that lug.

    It's cool. And +1 w/ the "no harm, no foul" approach. Shaka.

    No worries. It's all good. My point was that your story illustrates a problem that's been going on a long time. In fact, the people who Jesus got intensely angry with was not the lowly sinner, but the religious hypocrites in His day. He had choice words for them.

    Good i'm glad, and you are correct, I guess that's what bothers me the most about organized "religion".

    Indeed. Christianity is not intended to be a "religion" but a "relationship". Likewise, the Church is not intended to be an "organization" or "physical building", but an "organism", thus the NT metaphor of "the body" (this is what Wayne was getting at in post #249).

    Unfortunately, it doesn't take much for this to degrade or get maligned. I suppose one issue is that humans seem to have a "control problem" (i.e., desire for) which causes things to move from relational/body to religion/organization, and that's where the simple and genuine aspects of Christianity get lost.

    Thank you for clarifying that capecoddog. Forget the denominations,rituals,building,etc.Grab a bible and some friends, go to the beach and start discussing. It is real simple, you should try it. Whole idea is to follow Jesus.
