Side bar complaint- people who paddle out and directly into priority. Please f'n stop...this drives me ape sh*t. I will wait and wait and let people who have been waiting their turn. Its always the best when you are out alone and you get rolled up on by 5 dudes and now you have to fight for waves.
True, when you are riding a half million dollar pier you can sit waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy deeeeeeeeeeepppppppppp and catch anything you want. And Roy paddling faster will not help as the OP is obviously up and riding when someone hops the shoulder.
