    Are wave avatars overrated?

    That would be some of the Wildlyfe/Backwoods folks. I agree, way too crowded out there for step-offs.

    couple ppl nearly got nailed by the ski, it was pointless to be out there on a ski.

    King Colin determines when it is too crowded I guess.. For real though those guys are blessed to have the skis so go to an uncrowded spot and have at it. Looked ridiculous

    Thats really disappointing to hear Davey, and a really good way to start the state park managers thinking about the need for additional surfing/ski restrictions.

    not only is too crowded for that but its extremely unnecessary.. its over-head and barreling.. not 5x over head death nuggets with fire and dragons and sheet

    The waves were great that day and there were paddlers making the steep drops and making tubes. I saw many who sat in the lineup waiting for a peak and it comes and those dbags drive from 100 yds over and throw a boogieboarder onto it real early snaking the whole lineup. Many times the ski drove down the face of the wave into the shorey and what if someone was coming up from a wave or paddling back out the ski can easily hurt someone. It hasnt happened but it will. It almost went over the falls a few times. Take that **** to random beaches. I should never see a bodyboarder jump off a ski in head hi surf. Alot of hype and noise and chopping up the face of the wave. And now atleast 20+ new bros showing up to bob in the lineup and WATCH and takeup space.

    SAD day really ruined a perfectly functioning lineup. I bet 80% of people left with a sour taste in their mouth. The ones that arent blowing the jetski crews peens. Colin surfs really well there, he can easily make those death drops at southside. Cheers to all the paddlers and the regular boogies who probably still got theirs despite the increased agrivation.

    VINCE B killed it all day paddle in psycho drops backside on mental waves. Staying away from that spot way too much hype and commotion. CLAIMERS

    It is "necessary" for the shots they are trying to get. Trust me, those guys are more than capable of surfing it without the ski better than 99% of the people there or posting here. I'm not saying I agree, I've always thought it was lame. But then again, I'm also not trying to pay my bills and keep sponsors.

    I think most of you would be quite surprised how many people use ski's to get pictures, go-pro footage of few feet overhead closeout beachbreaks all over the world. Big name pro's. This isn't a thing confined to this area.

    *I do have to agree with Won on the fact Vince does come up and put on an absolute clinic though.

    This thread is great! I didn't realize so many people think the whole step-off thing is lame, I totally agree. But....they are only doing it in specific spots, mostly southside. So, if you don't like it go somewhere else? There were so many spots going off that day.

    at least everyone is talking about it...not really flaming each other, at the moment. I know i have heard more then a few locals, voice their displeasure with some of our more well known surf brethren.

    Instead of being jealous or resentful, which is the easy thing to do, maybe being more supportive could help. That being said,...Colin and crew do what they do. On a day like that, (weds) i would suspect the jet ski is/was a good crowd control tool/factor ;) No they do not need a jet ski. They are PROS, for lack of a better word.

    However,>>with all due respect<<, there are others in the local area that are better across the board,,,, from drops, to pit, to pocket, to slot, to end sections, to finish. >>>I'm just saying<<<

    As you said, and the videos show, Vince was playing with it. No assist needed.

    I think we are kind of lucky to have the diversity that we have locally, regardless of how we might feel personally about any one person or groups of people.

    Colin is trying to make it happen, for that i give him credit. Could he be more respectful of the line-up? Sure, maybe, ? actually yes, he should be setting the example to some extent, IMO. <<<you sure would not want the state getting wind of some uninformed crap and shut the whole thing down, like was mentioned before<<<<

    Dudes that was 4-5' with a few pushing 6 foot.....

    Completely ridiculous to have a ski out there. Delaware's pros just took five steps backwards. So that puts them 10 steps behind the irrelevant Jersey pros.

    Doing step offs in head high waves is completely uncalled for, throw a crowd in there it becomes dangerous. I cant believe this was allowed to go on by the people in the water. I know if i did that anywhere around me, other than an empty peak, id be kicked out and snaked on every wave.

    As for getting the "shot" bc they are starving pros, iv seen plenty of good gopro barrel shots taking by guys paddling into way bigger ec waves then that. learn to paddle with a camera instead of putting other surfers at risk.

    He was close enough to see the reg. #'s. Should have called the Indian River Coast Guard station. Would have put an end to it real quick.
