    The kids were out there RIPPING this weekend on the north end. I saw an endless string of surfers sitting on the outside, not catching a single wave the whole day. While I was sitting inside shredding along with all the other body boarders.

    One thing I noticed, in general, is that body boarders are much better wave riders. Now don't me wrong, I'm saying the average body boarder is better than the average surfer. Especially in the summertime.

    And to say that body boarders get in the way is flat out ridiculous. I can paddle faster or just as fast as you I'm sure. Not only that, but in my experience, surfers bail on more waves than they take. So I couldn't even tell you how many times I had to watch perfect sections go by unridden because a surfer paddled in, and then was scared to make the steep drop on the peak. How about leave the steep ones to us.

    Bodyboarding is easy as ****. Throw a person on a bodyboard and a person on a surfboard and see which one picks it up the fastest. And you don't paddle faster, you kick faster with your fins.

    I too noticed this the past weekend especially. I never realized they hit up the beach and dink wine etc. Their husbands dont seem to care if you check them out either (wise old man, or hes looking for a way to divorce her)

    Anyway, surf was fun this weekend. I have military access, so I hit up Dam Neck, nice to surf with only a few guys out. I don't think I'll ever go back to Croatanfor the rest of summer. Ive never surfed first street, but it looks to be kooked out as well, with geezer longboarders who "try" to regulate

    You're no doubt one of the guys who would be furious when I'm in the line up. I can't change that, but I don't respect it either.

    It's irrelevant how I paddle, the point is I'm not in the way anymore than another surfer in the line up. Before you pour a glass of haterade next time, you should fully understand the context of the conversation you jumped into.

    I know surfing is harder to learn. I never once said it wasn't. The average surfer is terrible though. The ratio of ****ty surfers to good surfers is more than the ratio of ****ty body boarders to good body boarders. That probably has something to do with the learning curve, I agree with you. But that was exactly my point. We aren't in the way, and saying we were was flat out wrong. The guy who said it even apologized and clarified what he meant because he knows the body boaders are decent wave riders.

    Like I said before, context is everything. I have a feeling though that you already had your mind made up about body boarding, and I doubt I'll change that.
