    it wouldnt be fair to compare nic von rupp to a sponger.that euro fever is legit and cant be fukd with.i remember many years ago jamie o brien took off behind mike stewart on a 3rd reef bomb,and jamie got spit out first followed by stewart.spongers cant pump like u can on a surfboard,but they do charge.it seems like any situation a sponger gets himself into,somehow always makes it out.theyll pull into a closeout and come shootin out the lip,do a 360 air and float away.i dont hate tho,riden a wave is what its all about,whether your riding a board,sponge,lunch tray or just bodysurfing

    I almost feel guilty, I can't help but want to drop-in on the d!<$ draggers. I don't out of respect for fellow wave riders, and I suppose there may be a few waves more suited to sponging, but for the most part they should learn to stand up! It's natural progression in my mind. I learned to ride and read waves on a bodyboard myself. 360, weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Nic Von Rupp rips.

    Hiyooooo! I think it's the funniest term around for spongers, had never heard it before seeing a sign hanging on the fence at Pipe saying "No d!*& draggers!" Don't get so defensive, the speed thing is just physics.
