    The last time a SUPPER cut me off, was the last time said SUPPER ever breathed again the tranquil oxygen of this world.

    Your 4th post & you're whining about a SUP who made you into his beaaaatch, illuminati? Shiiite, come back when your voice doesn't break & you have hair on your balls and waynetheinsaaaane has verified that asspect of your pathetic existence.

    SUPs have to control their ride. Plain & simple. Gaff got it right.

    I got plinged by a douche canoe SUP toolbag at The Place That Shall Not Be Named last summer. Right in my shin. Unibrow fukkker from Pennsyltucky. He paddled, and stayed, far away from me after that episode.

    they don't really "dig that ****" in hawaii. yes there are a **** ton of them there. but the same issues apply. yes, i have definitely seen a few of them that can actually rip. which is surprising. but i have yet to encounter a single sup that is not a wave hog. i personally have been snaked thousands of times by those ****s. its really hard to surf a reef break without one or 10 of them circling just outside the peak like a bunch of janitors running in circles. **** sups i want to fart in the mouth of the douche that made them popular. unfortunately its a rad surfer who used to live in maui and has now taken residence on kauai. laird hamilton. i almost feel bad for saying this, but **** laird. i now have a disgust for that guy. he is the brown eye of kauai. thankfully he lives on the north shore with all the other rich, spoiled, trust fund babies aka trustafarians. wanna be hippie douche bags. sup is for people who have tried to surf and can't. most of them can't even turn up over the back of the wave. they have to just ride it all the way in until the wave passes underneath them. ****ing tools!! i agree with NJ, they should be used in a river or bay or lake. ****ing janitors!! go mop somewhere else.

    the good thing about them is that they come, sup, leave and tend to not come back.

    There was a SUPer at my break a couple of weeks ago with a super long leash - maybe two leashes tied together. He had to curl the thing up in the back of his pants so it looked like he had a curly tail.

    If you think a SUP is dangerous, think about one with a 24foot + 12foot radius of destruction, paddling parallel to the waves and falling in just outside the takeoff spot every other set.

    SUPS on calm flat days and in the bay/rivers are fine.
    SUPs in the surf lineup are dangerous. They should be hassled at every chance and be made to feel very comfortable around surfers. Get them out at all costs.

    Everything about SUPs and the people who ride them in the lineup pisses me off. It's like showing up to your local Guitar Center and shredding on one of those guitar-remotes you need to play Guitar Hero. Even though it kind of looks like your playing guitar, you still look retarded, no matter how good you are.

    I love you Gaff so don't take this wrong way, but somehow YOU are the one who recently came on here freaking out because you took some Brazilians head off with your LB. Me and nearly everybody on here gave you the benefit of the doubt because we truly believe you are competent, if not, an expert surfer and probably more skilled than 99% of us on here. But having all that skill didn't prevent you from nearly killing someone in the water did it? Right, accidents happen, noted.

    Now don't get all hurt about this and take offense. I'm just playing devil's advocate here. I have yet to hear of the same story from an SUP'er, not saying it hasn't happened, but I've just never seen anybody post anything remotely close to what you described happened to you as the result of an SUP losing control.

    All i'm saying is, careful with the words you use, because it's coming off a bit hypocritical given your recent events. I actually told you that the guy was wrong for having the "deer in the headlights" moment but you and I both know you could of avoided that collision with an earlier kickout, as you described above. Was it your responsibility? that's debatable, but it was avoidable 100%.

    Having said all that, I agree that most people on an SUP are clueless and most need to be off by themselves. BUT if someone is skilled and has control of their craft and know when to go and when not to go and can keep themselves and everybody else out of harms way while not ruining anybody's session than I say more power to them. It's about respect and safety out there, take care of those two things and no worries.

    unless SUPs go away (which they won't) the only solution is separate beaches or sections of beaches for them to do their thing. At San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente, CA, they have a special section just for the SUPs. So if a SUP paddles out into one of the regular lineups the lifeguards tell them to get out and move down the beach. This beach is a longboard spot so there are a ton of people all day and a ton of beginners. if a SUP paddles out of their special spot the surfers will regulate if the lifeguards don't first.

    I've never been to belmar, NJ so i don't know if it would work there.

    Not at the rate things are going, and probably not ever in my lifetime. Surfing has become way more mainstream and just plain older in the past 20 years. Whether you agree with it or not, regulated lineups are going away as kids, fathers and grandparents share lineups with their sisters who are learning at a surf school on a longboard in the same lineup. With this changing demographic its pretty much "out with separation and regulation" and in with "everyone surfs" mentality.

    If his longboard nearly took off the kids head, do you really not know what what the outcome would have been if Gaff had been riding a longer, heavier, harder to control SUP? If a < b and b < c then you dont actually need to wait for the calculations to come in to know that a < c
