Well said Hanaebu. What's the point of unprovoked, anonymous trash talking on a surfing forum? Weird.
I agree and I'm not very familiar with internet forums, but I thought a surfing forum wouldn't have much BS. I guess surfing means different things to different people. It shouldn't involve douchebaggery though, in my personal opinion.
Thanks guys. I'm just of the mindset that we're all out there to have fun. The one thing that I love about surfing is meeting people in the lineup and making friends to paddle out with. Since we're all part of a larger "family", so to speak, we should be looking out for one another not dogging each other...regardless of skill level. Maybe it's an old school way of thinking but it makes sense to me.
Those who trash others need to remember that there is always someone better than them and we're all beginners compared to someone else.
