So I'm out catching some nice chest-shoulder sets yesterday on Jupiter Island. Me and about 6 other guys, all very chill, just trading waves.....then.....some guy comes out on a ski with his kid and just starts jetting him into waves.
Are you serious?!?!
I cannot understand how a guy can find it "ok" to bring a 1,000 lb ski out there to catch shoulder high waves?
Sorry just wanted to rant, I guess I should stop being so shocked by the audacity of people. But please buddy if you're reading this....KEEP YOUR DAMN SKI OUT OF THE WATER!
Anchor Point during a bombing January swell in 2009 and the Roxy Team guides were running a ski and a zodiac through the lineup, giving rides back to the top of the point and filming, and it REALLY took away from what was one of the best big days of surf I have ever experienced. The smell and noise of the two-stroke buzzing constantly was truly obnoxious. I realize you can't ever expect to surf solo there or without distraction (cause the "rash" is always on it at Anchors), but the girls' support team was too much.
