    is that acceptable?

    I know now a days they are considered lame, but as a youngster they were the hot new trick.

    They are also fun to do, but last time I did one some 20 year old surfers pointed and laughed and were like "that old man just did a chop hop".

    Some times I think I should stop but other times I think I should be grandfathered in and I should be allowed to do them with out being ridiculed.

    Please discuss.

    CJ Hobgood did a chop hop at Restaurants during the 2014 Fiji Pro. All of the commentators made fun of him. I can't do one and I'm a fan of Ceej but I think it's best to retire the maneuver.

    Hence... it's cool. Although, I've never seen Dane do it, so maybe its not... so confused!

    Wait, what is a chop hop? Those videos made it look like a little air over a chop? We always called chop hopping, bouncing side to side to keep yourself from sinking on flat sections so you could connect to the inside. I still do that from time to time, lol.

    under the lip = chop/hop 2-4' above the lip = backside air reverse Surf how you want, if everyone surfed the same there'd be no reason to surf

    Deffinitly. It's so awesome to see him surf. It's so refreshing. Watching pros surf is always cool, seeing the waves they surf and the things they pull off. But when you watch mason, it's such a diffrent vibe then any other pro. He's just out there having fun and surfing how he wants. Seems like he dosn't get caught up on the whole pro surfer persona. He just surfs. Only other guy who's like that is donavon frankenrieter. Love watching him surf. Unfortunately he's more about his music now, but his smooth style...I dig it

    I once did four 720s on one wave while playing tic-tac-toe.
