    Okay, I know how people feel about gopro's... I on occasion will take one out... so I had one today...
    I feel like a turd having this issue with a kid, but I have to say I damn near lost my composer and chased this fcktard out of the lineup.
    So, since I had the vid, here it is for all to debate!!! lol.
    Im on the inside, paddle into the wave, see this kid dropping in and I yell to him so he knows Im coming down the line. he looks at me and keeps going. there is some distance but not much... he does some little fairy hack on the lip and bam Im on him.
    In that instant I decide to chop is legs out and I told him if he wants to drop in on people to go to another beach (which is known for lawlesslness)....
    This little **** as he's paddling back out tells me to go f off!!! lol. I mean part of me laughed but part of me wanted to kick his spaghetti armed ass into beach... which I would have been arrested for.
    Now, what happened next? he left the point and went another beach with his buddy.... but really, I follow the rules... this turd is gonna have to at some point, no?

    Lol, yeah I think you're right.... I mean maybe he got the message... he did paddle back over later and there were no issues.... even though I was VIBING him bad! lol...

    You should have vibed him big time! You were totally in the right.

    i'd say no, you were not in the wrong. however, why in god's name does everyone point those forsaken things towards themselves?!?

    Well I took it off and held it in my had for a few rides, then pointed it in the opposite direction for few rides... I have to say that the most boring angle is the angle pointing away from the surfer. the wave and the ride look kinda weak. I use these vids exclusively for my own viewing now but figured I'd show some blatant dbag kid collision.

    that kid cut you off because he was like "look at this kook on a log with a go-pro when it's like 2ft, he won't make the drop, if he does, he won't make a turn. I should just go ahead and go"

    You gave him the heads up and he still went?! He got what he deserved, and I would/have done the same.

    There's still some summer kooks left at my spot. Water here takes a little while longer to get chillier... Please hurry

    Would you be so mad if the kid was apologetic, acknowledging that he screwed up?

    No, I would have said don't worry about it and just be careful. But there is this element at this particular break now that all these new kids are trying to be aggro. Its pretty much something I've never seen at this spot and I've been surfing it for 20+ years.

    I can't believe that kid dropped in on you. It looked like you had a nice little line going on too - shame it was broken up. You can't argue with the replay. Props for sticking to your guns and spreading the good word.

    thanks. the break, when its working and your taking off at the right spot, gives you a 30 second or longer ride sometimes... had a bunch of them today. I might take some flak for this but.... the break is really a long boarders break. Trust me I've taken my short boards there many times only to get arm burn and 5 to 10 seconds on it.

    My guess is narcissism. Posting the video out on YouTube sort of confirms it.
