    Sounds like you inadvertently sorta snaked him. But this is one of those things that's pretty unclear, and there are different rules depending on where you go. Some say closest to the peak/curl... some say whoever is outside furthest and starts paddling into the wave first... some say whoever's up and riding first. If it was a longboard spot, the local code is probably whoever is outside and paddles into it first.

    Personally, if somebody snakes me, I just go anyway, and not make a big deal about it. Same thing if somebody drops in on me... I just try not to hit him, and hope he tries not to hit me. It's kinda fun sharing waves with somebody who knows how to do it right.

    Yep, the way you misquoted me does sound ****ish without a doubt but its not what I said. In order to give perspective on the nature of this break I said "the place is known for long boarders but I was on a HPSB." I should have just said "short board" but that can mean a lot of things so I used HPSB (an abbreviation I learned from other posters on this forum) to be more specific. So, go ahead and drop in on me "SkegLegs" I was terribly wrong for wanton use of an offensive abbreviation and I accept your punishment. You can drop in on me any time as a good drop in is far less offensive than use of the abbreviation HPSB.

    agreed. lol.
    sounds like several ripper guys (one of them being a stranger to the lineup), sitting way on top of the point or whatever, taking all the good set waves from the older fat guys riding longboards and such sitting more inside. in turn, this causes frustration on the part of the old fat guys sitting in the more predictable lineup spot. i get it. it happens everywhere. you were probably both being dooshy in one way or another. if someone flipped their lid like the angry bald buy as described, there must have been something going on for him to get so frustrated. one can play by the "rules" surfing, but even if you're technically doing everything right you can still piss people off.

    I'm more of the violent type myself....

    There's a lot of individuals out there though they have some surf skills they really lack in etiquette. There are also some spots around the world in which the locals kind of make up their own pecking order.

    When I surf other breaks I try to be a little less aggro and play by their rules. I've found that if you piss them off you'll pretty much find yourself surfing leftover shore pound. If you paddle out, make friends, shoot the $hizat for awhile, give a few waves etc... you'll find yourself a lot more receptive to the locals. Also buying beers the night before for locals helps too!

    I agree though I avoid violence. I make my living as a musician and have to protect my hands. I'm very friendly to and respectful of the real (in this case Mexican) locals wherever I go. They were the best surfers out there and I wasn't about to get in their way. I even apologized to the psychopath who was certainly not a real local for inadvertently "back paddling" or snaking him or what ever it was I did. My intent was to let the incident pass and even after he started screaming obscenities at me I never raised my voice or used foul language. Ultimately though this guy should have his ass kicked!
