Sometimes a longboard is the right call, especially on the east coast. If you surf tiny days on a shortboard and get upset b/c you aren't getting as many waves as the longboarders, that's your problem. That said, there are some annoying wavehogs out there who don't know how to share. **** them. Back on topic, this dude is def not the biggest kook on the planet. He's out there having fun. Sometimes you get dropped in on, sometimes you're the one dropping in.
