Thread: Tow At !!

  1. #11
    Why so much hate for tow-in surfing? I think it looks like fun.
    Anyone complaining about crowds has obviously not been out this winter

    It was the comment about small waves that made this thread smell like kook.

    he's not talking about tow in surfing, he's talking about tow AT surfing. wildly different things. tow in surfing is for big (25ft +) or gnarly (think chopes during the code red swell). tow at surfing is a bunch of douchey technophiles f*cking around in small/tiny surf being obnoxious & making a lot of noise.

    Unless of course, the OP doesn't have arms. Then it's a glorious story of determination and drive amid adversity.

    Small waves like 3 feet would look pretty dumb, but what about something like this? Not 25 feet but still looking like a lot of fun.


    But hey if someone offered to tow me into anything I probably wouldn't turn down the opportunity.

    no reason to tow that. it's barely head high. it's just pure laziness/greed that leads people to think that doing s#1t like that is ok/a good idea.
