Thread: SUPs conundrum

  1. #31
    annoys me when some SUPers out here on the west coast think they can trunk it in 55 degree water. What ends up happening is they get cold real quick and start spazzing out, trying to catch whatever they can, as fast as they can, no matter what.

    Some SUP old lady in a bikini almost ran into me day before yesterday, going right on what was clearly a left I had already started paddling for way before her...she was friggin' shivering for god sakes.

    ^ Very annoying. Especially if, as a surfer, you managed to position yourself to a fun peak... then SUP guy sees you catching waves and then paddles to your area from half a mile away. You all know that feeling, and you have about a 2-3 minute window to relish and enjoy whatever waves that are left as the SUP guy hauls ass and gets ready to sit right on top of you.
    This is true, but it's also true that it happens the other way around too. Many times I've been on my own peak minding my own business well away from the pack, and said pack members see a dude on a SUP (me) killing it and wouldn't you know it, within a few minutes I'm surrounded. Then to make matters worse, those same dudes that came over to snake the peak then expect the SUP'er to leave or stop catching waves, hell, they might even go so far as to try and block for each other which is crazy considering the SUP'er that was there 1st and was alone before then. D*cks are always going to find a reason to hate on others for whatever reason...

    Yeah you're right, I just made that up.
