With all these kooky threads flying around now.... I figured I'd add my own... You don't have to be a kook to have ever been on the receiving end of a regulator or pissed someone off in the lineup enough that they justifiably got in your face about it. So... who here has been on the receiving end of a regulator or has been for good reason b.i.t.c.h.ed out in the lineup? For me.... I can only think of one event, when I was like 14 or so I paddled out with a 1960s 10ft longboard with no leash at a semi crowded beach. Everyone pretty muched said if I lose the board and it tumbles into the swimmers area... its my ass.... so I moved to a less crowded area.... that pretty much had no waves. lol.
