kinda long.... so saturday we had some workable surf. I paddled out, was by myself which is fine for mr.pitted. Had a couple waves when someone else paddles out near me. that's fine too but there is a ton of other beaches to paddle out on. Next thing I know we are about 30 yards apart from eachother and he keeps winding up closest to the peak so he gets the wave. Now I'm waiting for my wave. It was 10 second period swell so this guy manages to catch his wave and paddle out before the next good one comes. But he paddles to my left again. And now comes a wave and Im going for it its a great left but he is on the inside closest to the peak again and this jerk is going for it. so I back off. Now I'm waiting again.... and sure enough he paddles back out to my left and not 5 minutes later another pefect left comes. Mr.Pitted has had it now. I'm going, he's going. we both commit and sure enough he doesnt back off. I'm pefectly out on the shoulder and the entire time he's calling me a kook and riding the wave all the way to the shore line, knee deep water. I pick up my board and start going back out and he's next to me telling me I better not drop in on him again. Screaming it actually. People on the beach had to notice(it was early so no too many people). Anyways I paddle back out and I tell him I'll drop in on you all day chief. Now Im not from this area so I have no clue if his buddies will show up... but I mean come on he got like 3waves in a row, it was my turn. So.... same setup, hes about 10 to 15 yard to my left and a perfect left is coming in. He takes it even though I wanted to. Manages to paddle back out and sits on the inside of me again and here comes the next set. Again, Mr.Pitted has had it and Im going. Same exact thing. I get a nice left he's yelling at me the entire way in. But this time when I paddle back out he doesn't follow me and he walks out of the water red faced steaming. Whatever I paddle back out and am waiting for the next wave to take, when I casually glance back to the beach and I see this f-nut throwing my board bag and beach bag into the water!!! wallet, phone, keys a little bit of food all in the back pack. I couldn't f-ing believe it. I start paddling like crazy as Im more concerned about my belongings being lost then confronting him. I finally make it to the shore a grab my flooded back pack and some lady got my board bag. I look up at the boardwalk and this guy is flipping me off and takes off on his bike. I mean wtf. So not sure if I want to go back to that area... he had to be a local if he was on a bike. If I do see him do I confront him or get his info for damaged property for a police report.... I guess my cell phone was the only real casualty. Well no matter, brad pitted had some great rides and I will definitely be pitted again. I just can't help but feel the need to kick this guys ass in.
