    Sweet little edit, besides the fact it's clearly all tow ins.

    BRAH, I get towed into the heaviest east coast beach break, brah.

    We got dudes up here in Jerz paddling into way heavier barrels than that and dudes all around the world putting these nerds to shame.

    What a bunch of kooks! Why don't ya move somewhere by a lake and stick to wake-boarding and leave the surfing to the real surfers.

    if people can paddle into JAWS you can paddle into overhead southside or 93th street in OC.

    A great spot, even though the government keeps trying to ruin it to protect their sacred bridge.

    idk why everyone hates on the tow in guys, they're doing their thing... which is surfing.

    Funny how surfers hate on surfers for surfing.

    That ain't surfin' that's sissy stuff.

    You got dudes charging 30 ft. bombs on a skimboard south of the boarder, I'll accept a tow-in on that.

    But 5-7 ft. east coast beach break? Come on! Grow a nut sack.

    If mentally unstable people surf Mavericks and the like with no girly ski, you should be ashamed that you need it in DELAWARE.

    Take your beatings in stride like everyone else does, pansies.

    Here's how I feel about it...better to paddle for sure but I don't know this spot...maybe it's all ripped out and impossible to catch without a ski. Also, I can see it is freezing balls......... I have no idea....BUT..if you are using a ski don't hide it in all the footage...THAT is lame

    Metard posted a link to some tow in footage in Florida during last weeks swell. Lots of us used to paddle in there, but due to sand build up due to lots of factors, it is a very sketchy paddle in and I have no beef with those that tow in there. They don't get in the way of anyone who could paddle in there, so they should be able to catch all the barrels their skills can handle.

    And if it wasn't for Big Oil, they couldn't tow, unless they had PWCs powered by veggie oil or something. Imagine that, the lineup would smell like french fries.

    thats a pretty gnarly wave. like neck breaking gnarly. Do folks paddle into that wave, get that deep and make it out?

    Step offs, not towing. And those dudes rip whether they paddle or step off.

    Except they can get 50 waves in a day, get a good clip and earn a paycheck..

    ..Some one had to say it. Hater or not at the very least there should be a disclaimer, IMO.

    I gave a shout out already, Kudos that is. But I suspected that some type of assist was used. Valid point about number of waves rode. Paddle or tow/step.

    >>>I just hate the thought of not being there for that session, whether taking pics or in the water.<<<I would say there have been better times in the past, in some regard.. but that looked perfect, really, nothing to crazy nothing to small and just throwing lips, Hollow.

    BTW, the swell period was up around 13 sec. After going back through the pics, OCMD was/seemed bigger on set but those were tough conditions out there. I would have rather walked 10 to 15 feet out to catch some super round kegs vs long paddle out with current, drift and mostly close outs. However, to edit out the ski in the video leads to the *****ing and hating,... just saying.

    There you have it. From a paddlers view, there you go. They weren't getting in the way.

    At this spot everyone is a family, nobody(that isn't a kook) hates on anyone for anything... Usually
