Amazing the controversy that any pic of a bodyboarder stirs up isn't it?

Beautiful disaster. Amazing colors and angle of a boogie boarder wearing socks! (point and laugh).

There is no hate Betty Boop, especially towards you. Everyone expects girls to boogie board but it’s the guys bobbing around out there getting to one knee and thinking its “shredding” that catch the ridicule. Beaching themselves like frog flippered grunion. Gross.

Another gut slider chimes in. You are more predictable than the tide that pushes you and your infantile boogie board in the way of people actually surfing.

I am going to roll the dicer and accuse you of gut sliding. You really set the bar high for yourself doncha mr bird flipper? Dangalow is on it though, I could only add a stripped headband and fanny pack to the visual he painted.

Boogie Boarder + Drop Knew = whats the point ? Why don't you just try stand-up surfing instead?

this pic kicks ass I am a surfer however my dad had been bodyboarding for over 20years he is why I started surfing and is also why I have the wave knowledge i do anyone who actually talks shit about this photo or body boarders is a middle school boy or probably has a very very small penis as a grown 27year old MAN I cant imagine being concerned with what someone choses to use while wave riding........

I surf using whatever i can, different conditions = different requirement, long board, short, kayak, body board, inflatable croc, who gives a fcuk. Either you love the ocean or you really havent worked out what its all about, and sounds like both you and your dad have it right.

At least this guy is starting to evolve into a real man. He just needs to get rid of that weak foundation and get something that will support his progress. You can only do so much on a sponge buddy! Move on!

hindleg Feb 4, 2010 Rating: 0

If this guy just had a better base, a better foundation, he might be alright. I think a surfboard can give him both of those things.

i'd expect more from a fellow south african - you must be from cape town or similar, as the rest of us up the coast gladly share waves with good spongers - shame on you...

Its not a HDR although I can see why one would think that, looks alot like one.. the effect was created from simple adjustment layers and playing around seeing what works. I was really lucky this day also as the lighting couldn't of been much better.
