    That's an easy cop-out, you can't define something but you know enough about it to say I'm not one. I don't care if you think I am or not, just pointing out hypocricy when I see it.

    You know you are something you can't define? Then how are you so sure?

    I do apologize for crossing the line, but i also believe you were out of line. Call it a wash.
    Never said I was upset about you calling me an a$$hole. Once again you assume something. I've been called much worse. trust me. You sounded like a liberal when you got on your high horse. I didn't realize you were a librarian, or libertarian, or whatever, the F@ck you call yourself. You are obviously holier than thou and you will always be the type of person that assumes that anyone that calls out your opinions are wrong or ignorant. I was trying to respect your opinion and to explain that surfing means different things to different people. But according to you we all must just except your view that surfing is simply is a little play time thing that we should not consider an important part of our lives or show any PASSION for. I'm am now done with this thread so Kyle you can take it from here. Aloha.

    Sorry, didn't mean to come off 'holier than thou,' just didn't want to come off as ignorant as you.

    You stereotype people into political classes while knowing little to nothing about politics? Phrases like "a librarian or whatever the F!ck you call it" really help validate everything I've said about you.

    Aloha

    I rarely post but this is a good thread. I cannot say I agree with everything that Lee said, but he has some valid points. I was out on Tuesday afternoon and it was rough with some head high sets rolling through. It was a tough paddle out and you could get hurt if you did not know what you were doing.

    It made me think back to when I first started surfing....., it was all about self reliance, nobody was going to help me if I got into trouble. You had to look out for yourself in many situations. You never put yourself in a situation that could get you or someone else hurt. I think some of that has been lost because of equipment (cheap boards, wetsuits, etc) and ....dare I say it...common courtesy.

    I never recall anyone helping me...in a way, it is a rite of passage. You do the crap work until you are good at that and then you can move up the ladder. Lee seems like a pretty good guy, like the rest of you....I think it is important to understand his message in the proper context. The pecking order exists for safety purposes.

    I am calling you out!!! STOP SURFING, IT'S NOT FOR YOU. This isn't a team sport, take up softball. Surfing is what it is because generation after generation surfers have led the rebellious front against society. Only lately have surfers become "athletes" and respectable members of society. Good for the pro's, but stop trying to subject me and my like-minded brother-en to this pussification of surfing. Some "benny / kook / tourist /whatever" buys a funboard and all of the sudden that person is a surfer? THAT is who would call the cops because they got in the way of another, better, surfers board. THAT is not a surfer, and THAT is not what surfing is about. Leashes didn't even exist until the 1980's, and let me re-assure you, IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH KIDDIES ON THE INSIDE, it was so that Gerry lopez could stop swimming through the urchins after his board in G land.

    The other day I was shooting toward the inside...wave was a bit fat and a longerboarder was in front of me attempting to pull his board over the shoulder. I probably wasn't on the right board for the conditions and I was bogging a bit as I attempted to push through--maybe he thought he could get through the wave, or believed I was going to get caught up in the whitewater/fall....regardless he continued to paddle straight out. Half of his board made it through the face of the wave, but he wasn't able to pull it all the way through....as I was passing by him I grabbed his board (as it was in my way) and gave it a push over the back. The push threw me off balance and I fell...about 5 feet from him. I got back on my board and paddled out. I then....????

    How should have I responded? Guy was able to catch waves from what I saw, but was in the wrong place at the wrong time...I could have been injured if I didn't give his board a push. Discuss...
