    Shredders Unite!!!

    I was just thinking about how much longboards really piss me off. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks!!! CUT THEM OFF!!! So to be frank, if your over 40 and ride a longboard, you are now the lowest priority in the lineup. The first reason being that, your over 40 and have probably surfed 2 times as long as I have, and the second reason being that, well longboards are pretty lame. Honestly, i don't even see how you all enjoy riding those huge planks of wood, don't you ever wanna just throw a bash??
    Now this is not to say that I'm just gonna burn every longboarder I see, and I ain't burning any cool old guys that can still get down and hang 10 and whatnot. But if your just one of those guys that just goes out, sit 50 yards out past everyone else and takes all the good peaks just to stand there stink butt style, your days of peak snagging are over!!

    I know all your shortboarders have trouble with old longboarders, and my message to you is to not take their nonsense any longer!! When you see an old longboarder just stinking up a wave, go ahead and drop in on him (and make sure to bash the lip infront of them also, this makes longboarders cringe with envy!!!) I'm not taking the BS anymore, and neither should any of you!! BURN THE LONGBOARDERS!!!!!!

    it really doesnt bother me. because most longboarders when they're paddling out then you can get peaks. also remember some waves are both lefts and rights so every one can share the waves.

    Well to start I'm not sure how many people still ride a wood board, anyway I can say for certain I can shred a longboard better than you "probably" can any board, and I'm not near 40. You should keep your bad days to yourself.

    Well....it seems like a stupid topic. Just trying to start the Poop in a random kind of way, about much of nothing. But like others, a sensible reply is not uncalled for and is a good way to draw conclusions about ones character.

    I for one truly feel that Long Boards are in fact top of the food chain,... when we speak of using devices to surf a wave. I have respect for all types of devices as long as the rules are followed and others have respect for my choice of devices or no device at all for that matter.

    But I really have to say that in the hands of a knowledgeable and skilled waterman, the use of a long board actually takes on a grace and art form that just can not be achieved with other devices.

    If you actually knew anything and have seen anything,.. like a long board in the hands of a skilled surfer in large conditions, then maybe you would understand. Around the Delmarva, I can think of no more then ten, at the most? maybe a little less,...who are even able to use a long board in large hollow conditions. Of those, maybe only one or two are UNDER 40. Truth of the matter is, you really should feel lucky if you are able to surf around someone with skill over the age of 40.....those guys rock, and you should hope that you are able to even make it to that age group and still have the love and drive in you eye the way they do. Sure there are plenty of plus 40's that suck ass and get in the way, but that is so true about many anyway....regardless of what they try to ride out there.

    I can not put a precise date on it, but there was a Surfline Video of some guy riding a LOG from what looked like, almost third reef PIPELINE,...he was on it for sure the whole way from second reef,...anyway the guy just Played with the face the whole way and set up for the most deep first reef bomb gut that you could think was even make-able. i mean the guy was so out in front the whole time, but sat down and could not have been in more control and deep as possible,...man so unreal. No way! No way, you could have done that on some short board. And the whole while the dude was so chill and kicked back, like I said, Top Of The Food Chain Bro. <<<<and those are the same guys that can go out on ankle biters and put on clinics>>>>art form for sure.

    Really, if that is how you feel about the long boards you should just give up surfing.

    Right on. Longboarders, shortboarders, and bodyboarders have equal rights in the ocean. I'm a shortboarder and have been so for over twenty years, and can tell you I have more respect now for other surfers than ever, no matter what you're riding. Maybe instead of talking trash on others, you guys should try and get to know one another in the water. And whats up with all the annonymous names on here, if you guys are such rippers you shouldn't be affraid to use you're real names, and it would cut back on the trash talk. My dad is sixty and still surfs amazing , and by the way he usually longboards.
