You were pretty far ahead of that guy at 1st and then he walked you down from behind, so i'd suggest working on getting more speed down that line and you won't have to worry about that happening should you happen to get up on one by accident and don't have inside position. Lastly, having a GoPro on your board will make you stick out like a soar thumb in the lineup and being you've only been surfing 6-7 months, it just makes you a target for someone looking to burn you. Keep it up though, you look decent for someone just learning.
    Dude what if he got in it with WarChild or someone like that??? I mean I dont even think the FitzTorped... or fitzpedo would even make a difference against warchild...

    To the OP

    Watched your video a couple times, you both took off at nearly the same time, but he was deeper...so your in the wrong. But it's a learning process, he was far enough away from you, that you didn't cause him to bail or worse, cause bodily injury. I would say your fine, if the situation ever arises again, as soon as you realize someone is deeper, just pop back off the wave...no harm, no foul.

    as for Sunny Garcia, I think he is a damn good surfer, but an immature hothead. You fight another man mano e mano, but you don't beat up somebody else's kid. Just my $.02.

    Can't really tell from the video to give any opinion, but just want to point out if it hasn't been already, that anyone with a Go Pro on their board is likely to be given hassle. Unless you are really good, then people will respect you.
    But being new to surfing and having a Go Pro on your board is almost identical to dropping in on the most respected surfer in the lineup. lol.
