    I don't know where I stand with this. I surf to escape life's stressors but over the years I have witnessed many unnecessarily angry people in the water. I get there are times its warranted.

    It sounds like this guy is just a dick and his business is going to hurt because of this. But maybe she was being a wave hog.

    Unless there is someone who is absolutely not getting the etiquette or putting people in danger, I can let a snaked wave go. It just one of those things that happen and it will get me pissed for a moment and then another wave comes and all is forgotten. If it happens again I will probably kick my board out at the person as a check and make it clear that shit isnt cool. I have been on the other end where I just did not see someone down the line or whatever but I will always let the person know "my bad."

    They are both kooks. Not worthy of an article. They should both quit surfing and start a caravan of migrants and head to Honduras for asylum.

    Wow just read the article.

    I love how they caught this d-baggery from 2 different angles. California, man. Crazy s*** out there when you have 2 people filming the same little garbage wave.

    Every time I have surfed in Cali the people in the lineup have been super cool. That could also be because I'm overflowing with stoke when I get to surf in the Pacific ha.

    Just a little courtesy goes such a long way. Paddle around the pack rather than through it. Let an entire set go by without even looking at it (well make it look like you aren't looking at it). Share. It's easy.

    Back to the article tho... I agree with DP. Not article worthy at all. This s*** is stupid.

    Shame about the guy's business, but when you are a member of the local economy, you gotta take that into consideration at all times whether on the clock or not. Now that this has gone viral (sort of) he's done for.

    I am sure this will jump on board the racism train, because that what society does now a days for EVERYTHING!!!! Either way, whatever prompted this guy to paddle out and sit on top of the ladies and or grab her leash, when she clearly had priority, who knows, but is acting like a real douche canoe! Get over yourself dude! I love when I see some ladies in the lineup, especially if they are out there rippin it up!

    damn, so this is considered assault nowadays. on a 2 ft wave. the danger. pre-meditated assault. 3rd degree. cut his credit cards. No problem with me for calling him out and hurting his business. filing a police report tho? i bet they'll try to sue him being that it's in Cali

    Good thing her leashe knotte was secure. That could have really caused some problems. Hell, some might even say the Brazzo instructor was just trying to demonstrate proper drop in technique.

    I like how dude tried to apologize in the parking lot…”it was an accident”. How the fug you gonna grab a leash and yank it accidentally?

    Call the cops? I don’t think so.

    Battle of the minorities on this one.

    Who will come out on top?

    Will it be:

    Black Girls Surf or Brazilian Surf Club

    Not joking, these are the actual names.

    We have a sup surfer who shows up at Nanny - Brazilian Dude, and he’s really good... problem is he’s all over the breaks back paddling people paddle battling people and jamming for every wave constantly. I dropped in on him twice, once was accident second was a phuck you and he got pissy and said crap and made faces (-according to my giggling daughter) and she laughed because he had yelled at HER for being in his way in the white water. THAT guy? I’ll bail boart, shoulder hop and just in general mess with all day - this beach has waves all dam day everywhere when it’s working for half a mile. The aggro just isn’t necessary.. but between being learnt here by you fellas and a few locals, I guess it’s just part of their surfing.
    Too bad I guess, how much more fun is it when your actually HAPPY surfing?

    That jerk needs a serious beatdown, one so bad that it makes him consider his attitude about life in general.

    Maybe so bad that he turns into Tebow.

    I will say that if I have an Achilles heel it’s my little girl - she is the sweetest and kindest kid I’ve ever known and when someone is a douche to her? Or mean to her? Just because they suck as people?
    I get really deep down angry and nasty. So I can totally get down with that post Daddy Stone -

    Y'all notice how her leash got wrapped around the nose of his board?

    I noticed that on the video replay as well, like he was trying to snake her or maybe miscommunication of wave direction off the drop, inadvertently gets his fancy Hayden Shapes tangled into the leash and has to pull it off in the most dramatic way possible... If she wasn't wearing a leash this wouldn't have happened. Just saying.

    If you have an issue with someone in the lineup the only respectable way to handle it is a proper Fitzpedo.

    I thought that leash pulling was a children's game.

    I mean i don't agree that it's assault or that any police should be involved or that any one should get sued. But that could of been bad. 9 times out of 10 probably not. But pulling someone's leg out like that.... plenty of bad things could happen that could cause actual injury.

    Guys a douche. And i didn't get through the whole article. I saw race and gender brought up and said oh god not this again.

    Kind of a side story. But somewhat related. My buddy passed away this summer. Great older surfer. He would drop in on you constantly. Not in a bad etiquette way though. He'd tell you he's going. And he's been surfing the beaches for longer than iv been alive so he's earned it. Any way, when he passed me and my buddy kind of made a joke out of dropping in on each other. Not on purpose. But he dropped in on me, i dropped in on him. Both complete mistakes. So we said it was in memory of our friend. Well turns out we both drop in on each other constantly! I really had no idea. After about a week or two of the jokes creation it dawned on me. I surf with blinders waaaaaay more than i thought.

    Point being, mistakes happen. Be polite and apologize. But just because you think you have good etiquette doesn't mean you actually do. After this realization iv made a conscious decision to be more aware

    It’s like crossing the street. Look left, look right, look left again.
