    Loud mouths, just STFU already! Act like you've been in the ocean before, for f*ck sakes! That's why I prefer DP, for those few moments of true solitude. That pretty much covers it, anybody who tries to vibe me or paddle battle me will be will be dealt with accordingly so I don't worry bout those type.

    Old guys who tell hou how good it used to be every time you see them. Local surf shop owner who is always trying to sell you something in the line up. Guy who says "You shoulda been here yesterday." when you were there yesterday. Those guys I could live without.

    worst to surf with.. new surfers who try to go right to the newest Dane Reynolds CI model and think that they will immediatly be able to surf like him, sponsored riders who think they can totally snake you because of the stickers on their board and older guys who like to harass the beginners and younger guys for no reason

    As usual Roy "bennie" Stuart is wrong so I guess he would be the first type I hate...............Paddling around someone to be in the deeper position is snaking..........definitely not cool......MFitz73 sittin deep with his LB on a big day would be the second.........And the 3rd would be the guy that has to catch every wave that comes to him whether he's out of position or not.......Ok 3 would be Roy Stuart again........

    I hate surfing with people who don't understand surfing edicate...actually I take that back. I can't stand surfing with people who don't care to LEARN surfing edicate. Just got back from california. Surfed Trestles, PV Cove, Haggerty's, Dog Beach, El Porto, and Manhattan Pier. It was a pleasure surfing with people who understood surfing edicate. I am dreading the NJ summer for this reason.

    Number two...I hate crowded breaks. In fact, I will go on record right here, right now, and say that El Porto on a good weekend is LESS crowded than any given NJ summer day with 2 ft dribblers. It was hilarious to hear the californians complain about "crowds" at trestles. They would s**t bricks if they saw the crowded lineups in jersey in the summer. I am moving to antarctica...I hear they have almost no crowds.

    So you claim always to be as deep as is possible, and never out of position, while demanding that no one paddle inside you, ever.

    You'd have a bit of a learning curve and even more of an anger problem if you surfed where I do.

    Hate is an extreme reaction, and will cause you harm.

    A communist soup kitchen mentality, you should be ashamed of yourself for expressing it...

    Here's something for you:

    brazilians: Overall, they yell a lot, drop in without priority and then ride the waves with ugly/sketchy style (even some of the wct brazilians surf with a crappy style. yeah, they can make air reverses, but the rest of the time they look like ****).

    australians: many are nasty, cussing, bullying surfers in the water, when in packs...even when there's no need for that behavior

    longboarders and SUPs: a lot of them are rich kooks who let good waves go unridden. These people can any catch any rolley wave anywhere down the beach, yet they insist on clogging up the best (or only) shortboardable spot in town. I also hate how they just stand like a statue on their boards (because the boards are so big and boat-y, you can't do much else)...and those weak/stupid looking turns and what they call an "off the lip"

    groms: a lot of them don't have the muscle development for paddling, then drop in on you thinking you won't say or do anything because they're pre-pubescent...or they have a father or big brother (or more) backing them up. Lame. Again, these kids are so small, they can surf and have fun at any tiny wave anywhere, but insist on becoming obstacles at the best spots

    kooks: "I wanna learn to rip...within our one week vacation at the beach. If I buy a channel islands shortboard, it will happen. I'll go to the best surf spot in town, flounder around and let a bunch of good waves go unridden until I'm ready." WRONG - took me 10 years to be able to learn most of the things it takes to be a good surfer (takes practically a lifetime to learn everything). I surfed a lot of that, alone, so I could hone my skills, build my paddling strength and not be in anyone's way.

    Have you sensed that seeing good waves go unridden is a sore spot with me? Go to hawaii and see how often that doesn't

    Ya know, in Jax Beach they moved a pier that went down with a hurricane to where I surfed all my life. Guys out there one day telling me to show respect because he surfs there everyday. Drops in on me sayin he was farther out....because the shoulder hangs back a bit, and I was already up and in the bowl having made the drop at the peak.....
    Yet, when its a washing machine out there no ones out except for a few of us - out of the 1000s of surfers there will be ten of us who will go out in an entire day - at the poles (jetty North of the pier).

    The truth is: localism sucks because everyone thinks they're a local and have the right. And Nor'easters don't throw 2-3ft slop, but 4-5ft slop. The reality is that there needs to be an international establishment of rules that must be adhered to worldwide by surfers so that there is never any confusion about who has the right of way...and some respect has to be paid to locals, but if you can surf all day out there maybe you need to get a job....ain't no pro's writing on this blog.
    I left my break for a while, and when I came back all the groms had grown up; and thought I was an outsider. Until the local photographer started taking notice I kept getting **** from guys that ripped but couldn't surf...didn't know the ocean and it's ways...and of course they couldn't get the right spot. It's stupid, monkey see, monkey do.
    Now that I'm recognized in all the breaks again, I go out of my way to apologize if I drop in, and pull out or get in someones way paddling back show an example of how we should be towards each other. It's that or choke people out all day the wish they were pro Hawaiians who can't get a sponsor.

    We call back paddlers, paddle-a-rounds. They never do it unless they're out with a group of friends, otherwise people start giving them the stare.

    That's everywhere now. They can get air, but waste the rest of the wave pumping. They don't know how to carve, or anything.

    1.) loudmouth florida transplant that uses an 11' plank
    2.) agro shortboarders on a classic longboard spot -_-

    4.) someone who makes **** up about conditions when they don't know what they're talking about...smh

    ...these people are annoying in and out of the water, which is usually the case for all these ppl
