    An old timer here ( he is 74 ), who still paddles out in well overhead waves, now uses a 7'8" SUP to paddle out with. When I asked him where his paddle was, he explained to me that after he hit 70, he had to relearn the art of surfing, and now "cheats" by paddling in with a small SUP. He says he gets plenty of waves, and even if it is not that maneuverable, it is still surfing.

    HA HA HA, I wanna get one and just do figure 8's (laying down) in the line up while whistling. No arms in the water, just using the jet. They are only $4,445.00, get two!

    A few guys I see out in my spot are probably mid 70's. They ride 10' logs and don't seem to have many issues.

    But dude... We could go surfin and not even get our ankles wet. My hair could stay perfectly coiffed. Imagine the possibilities! Plus I could spend a year's rent at the same time! F-in A! Sign me up!

    Got nothin against windsurfin, or kite surfin, or houseboat surfin, or wavejet. They just aint SURFIN. Call em sailin, or kite flyin, or whatever.

    Aint surfin.

    I guess my issue is one of terminology.

    I do wonder though about catchin waves too small for a log. Geez. Just go swimmin.

    Alright Mr 8 posts accusing everyone else of trolling. If I ever see a wave jet in the line up im calling the ass with it to the beach and breaking it. I dont know where you are from but if its in europe that goes twice for you so keep that hunk of crap over there with your bad teeth and fish n chips. Im ok with people with severe injuries and such but the old not so much theres plenty of geezers who paddle and rip if u downed too many twinkies, smoked one two many cigs and think its a free pass to put a motor on your board you are a tool.

    Bro. His post you quoted is from over a year ago. Do you go to the mall and tell off the mannequins?
