    Yeah buddy, Chris Weidman is a young buck who has no clue what he just did, it'll sink in soon enough. Glad he won, he seems rather humble compared to the Spider, and most other Brazillians (minus Axe Murderer, he's a saint)

    "The King's English". I think that's toe to toe with NJshred for one-liner of the week, and it was a big week on here for the wit.

    Hey I feel you. I live in Va beach I have never seen this stuff anywhere but here. I have them work me like that and I just paddle off and look back and they are gone. I am like what the hell man.

    Nobody in VA beach will do anything physical to you. Sure you'll get loads of mean looks and snide comments, but generally they're ****ies out there.

    One can only hope, I pray AS comes out guns a blazing and Weidman just plants him again, but late in round 4 or 5. That would be poetic.

    I think a lot of people here have never been in a real lineup at a real surf break. I'm not talking a bunch of old dudes singing Kumbaya on their fun boards, hanging out at whatever street happens to be good in your town. Go to Trestles, Steamer Lane, Pipe/Rocky Point, Sebastian Inlet, 1st Street (circa 10+ years ago), or any one of other places where a lot of people regularly go and there are a lot of good/young surfers. You will get hassled. You won't catch a lot of waves. People will paddle inside and block you. There is a pecking order. If you weren't born there it may take a few years until you are somewhat accepted. That's just the way it is. Surfers who grew up around crowded breaks are naturally going to be more aggressive. It's not necessarily that they are being jerks (although there are plenty of them too), it's just how they have been conditioned to catch waves.

    Yeah, there is a "pecking order", but it is at best a de facto establishment totally dependent on the participants' willingness to participate. I was born in VB but don't surf 1st St. very often because I think its a bad wave with too many obstacles. But when I do go to that spot, I definitely experience the bad vibes, the dirty looks, the aggressive positioning, etc. I just don't put up with it. That place is completely devoid of ettiquite to the point that I won't respect anyone who doesn't themselves show respect. There are only so many passive aggressive techniques the "locals" can employ to keep you from having a good time. Just don't buy into it. Go to 1st St, snake waves, drop in on people, paddle in front of people to catch waves. If you don't, you'll not catch a single wave andhave a terrible time. Law of the jungle, baby

    That's why I said "10+ years ago". 1st Street has devolved and ability or experience has nothing to do with what takes place there now. Also like you said, it's not that great of a wave anymore.

    HAha these 1st street posts...

    It will make you a better surfer if you can learn to cope with that IMO. Competition...its the American way.

    Hey,lets start a communist wave at 5th street (or is that Croatan?)!

    Everyone deserves to have food, job, kids, opinions, rights, ext...NOOO!

    That's it! I am taking this thread over...when time permits. I will become the SwellInfo dictator. Its not capitalized because there will be more of us! Then there will be a SwellInfo War!

    The frontlines are your local breaks starting at 1st street VB. I call on all with a Megadolonic Roy Stuart boards to run over all of the gromulons and all other collateral over only to turn on them and make the break mine!

    or PLAN B...I go Start Wars on your break and roll through with my clones. Wouldn't that be sweet? Even that movie Multiplicity with a surfing twist. Just like a hydra...take out one and more will come.

    Do you want to surf with me? Hey I just finished work for the day! Would you like to do some 2 feet @ 10 sec waves at low tide? Let's chase the surf schools away (even thought they leave in 5 minutes). This will be the first victory.

    Think of 1st as a 30 minute heat, paddle, snake (or be snaked). Depends on my mood I guess or how many people I recognize.

    Practice for the tour maaaan! 30 guys on a 30 yard sandbar? No prob..longboarders coming in at 12oclok, gunz a-blazin, love it

    Really - I try to stay humble in the line-up, maybe in a few more years I'll have something to show, until then I'll paddle hard, be cool and stay stoked.

    It's like Nam, man, there are no rules.

    I've seen rival crowds at "destination" spots too, and the same always stands: There is almost always a similar, lesser known, uncrowded wave nearby.

    This place sounds like a lotta fun, maybe they should hand out weapons to everybody on the way in to the lineup so everybody can club one another off of waves rather than paddle battles and stink eye competitions

    Why is it that everything you say greatly worries me lol. I'm keeping any blunt / sharp objects the hell away from you if you're at my breaks! Lol
