    ... because what is the point of catching a wave if you aren't gonna stick your d*ck in it????

    I Have plenty of wet things at home to stick my d*ck in. I found that mother nature prefers me standing up grinding her wet walls with every appendage I have. She writhes, bucks, she speeds up and clamps down on me. In one major orgasmic moment her fountain burst loose and she spits me out. Stand up and learn to be a man.

    Because waist high is overhead.
    Because you feel part of the wave. Hard to even explain, but all bb'ers know exactly what I mean
    Because it's less stressful on the shoulders.(less paddling and less pushing up)
    Because you can get barreled in thigh high
    Because I like having fins on
    Because it's more fun
    Because you're looking straight ahead. I prefer that to moving sideways.
    Because you can take crazy drops and do amazing manuevers.
    Because it's safer(fin's cutting you even possible in thigh high mush...board knocking you out ect)
    I could go on and on. Truth is I wouldn't call one better than the other. It all depends on the individual. FOR me. It's better/more fun. For someone else, the opposite could be true.

    It doesn't matter if you are surfing , bodyboarding , bodysurfing skimboarding etc etc as long as your having fun. We all come from the sea but we are not all from the sea .Those of us who are , children of the tides must return to it again and agian live like Jay.

    Goofing on Boogie Boarders is like making fun of handicap people.

    haha more like real shark bait are boogie boarders! ive done both (I think everyone body boards as a kid) but the point of view from standing up is far nicer than a foot from the wave. boogie boarding is so easy I feel many of those guys resorted to it because they couldn't surf or deal with the slow progression of surfing. imo.

    There are like 50 of these existing threads... so it gets old after a while.
    If you have to prove to yourself, why one form of wave riding is better then the other, then your not doing it right.

    The one thing for sure that is true about bodyboarding (or body surfing for that matter to) is feeling the wave. As a kid we all body boarded and both my girls learned to bodyboard before they got on a surfboard. Its a stage like evolution of surfing.... some evolved some sponge ;) But whatever floats your boat..err board is fine by me.

    Except for Kite surfing....go fly away somewhere!

    As far as sticking **** in the wave, when I am surfing frontside in overhead tubes I use that particular move as a tube stalling technique. Get's me real deep.

    If trolling is writing a funny thought I have about a situation than I am guilty. Just do not understand the bodyboarder, I know it's fun I have tried it, but surfing is so much more of a challenge. Oh well... to each his own and at least we all like it wet.

    hmmmm....Considering I snowboard and know how to ice skate very well. Both very technical. I don't think that's the case at all. Ever try paddling a boogie board in overheard beach break? Paddling a surfboard is far easier in comparison. Also, if you look at the difficulty of some of the bodyboarding tricks and contrast that with the fact that, learning how to stand on the board is by far the sharpest part of the learning curve of surfing you can see that the difference in difficulty is not as big as you think. Most people don't progress to the level of kelly slater or anywhere even close to that.

    Honestly, I don't care about difficulty level anyway. It's about what's most fun, not what's most difficult.

    Skiing/snowboarding ice/crap conditions is really difficult. Doesn't make if fun. Just makes it a ****ty time compared to fresh powder. I'm not comparing surfing to that. I'm just saying just because something is challenging doesn't mean it's better.

    skim boarding is to surfing - as - skiing is to snow boarding

    boogie boarding is to surfing - as - learning how to walk is to hiking the Appalachian trail.
