From his foamy trail, look like he drew a line for him. Had plenty of time to cutback. Surfing is one of the only sports in which your allowed to play when you have no f-n idea of the rules.

big round of applause for neil here folks, this is by far the best thing online right now! i cant help but check the most recent remarks every time i'm online. i know there are alot of "world politics issues" being debated these days. i think in our "surf" world, this may be one of the hottest topics, it's brought alot of emotions out of alot of us. thank you neil! that being said, please remember, better a lip to the head then a fin to the ass!

Although we will never know the true story, it is likely that both individuals are punts. The charger does look like he has some speed, and judging by his lack of poise, appears to be struggling to control things a little. The gook getting his tendons sliced was just in the wrong place at the wrong time on his paddle out.

come on people. i am not sure what this setup is like but maybe he just wiped out super deep in the barrel or something and was paddling for the shoulder, we dont know, but who hasnt been there ? he is a out on the shoulder a bit anyway but there is no need to mow the lad down. the surfer should look where is is going and bail if he has to to avoid the collision. if it is a kook paddling where he shouldnt, explain it to him. kooks should have our respect too. be cool. if you get down and you quarrel every day, you're saying prayers to the Devil I say. why not help one and other on the way, make it a little easier? (just a little bit easier). say you just cant live that negative way, if you know what i mean, so make way for the positive day. cause its a new time and its a new feeling and its a new sign. oh what a new day.

not that i am one to criticize, because my surfing skills are something like wilbur kookmeyer high on crack having an eppileptic seizure.....but........the surfer chose the worst line available and has a face like a porn star getting ready to get the money shot......the ducker doesnt even need to duck that section and isnt making the least effort to dodge the surfer. Theyre both idiots and since they already look gay they might as well rent one of those romantic balian honey moon suites and go practice...not making babys!

dude i dont think you know what your on abt, if your paddling out you should head for the white water, you would know this if you had good surf manners, and i get sprayed all the time and you just have to get over it, and when you spray a surfer who sprayed you back its all jokes everytime i have anyways its like someone else on this thread said, kids shouldnt play in the road, if a cars coming along you dont run out in front of it and then complain when it hits you. spraying is like a surfer on the waves way of honking the horn. But this basically wouldnt have happened if the guy paddling out had paddled out where he was supposed to end of really i think most people who surf in crowds would agree if you go surfing when big and crowded you should know were to paddle

like i said before, if you're paddling. it's your responsibility to not be in the way. if you have enough balls to paddle out at break like this, you should have enough balls to duckdive the wave in the proper spot. the surfer on the wave isnt the only one in control of the situation, look what happen to Tamayo Perry last year at pipe. a person who doesn't know how to paddle and duckdive, is the same type that doesn't look both ways before dropping in on you. next time you're hauling ass down the line and have to give up the 2nd half of the wave because someone's in the way, what will your suggestion to that person be?

Get real people, saying it was the paddler's responsibility to avoid the collision is bull and little like explaining to the cops that you ran over a kid on the street cos he shouldn't have been there in the first place. This was so avoidable, what an arrogant little prick, this is a dangerous sport but twats like this make it more so. Grrrrr, going to put on my angry eyes.

Surfing was and is a sport for no pussys, to reach the highest level you pass through different stages which are practic and spiritual. You'd say that none of the pro-surfers today would fit in that profile but trust me, they do. To surf the best wave first you gotta make a place for yourself to surf it, it isnt enough with just the skill you need to ride it. So the moment where you enter the water is the moment where you must make yourself clear situations like this and your response. I'd have waited for the guy outside and broke his jaw, he is a small portion anyway.

This picture simply proves that anyone can be a jerk, regardless of their chosen vehicle for wave-riding. I know there are some people on here who are intollerant of spongers, goatboaters, SUPers etc, but this guy is a bigger dick than anyone I've ever seen on any of those craft, and he's stood up..! It's the behaviour of the surfer, not the means by which they express themselves that should determine their acceptance. Just my two-peneth (or cents for you guys over the pond)...

altoro you're wrong man. If a guy is screaming down the line on a fast wave, then yes, the paddler should turn into the white water and take it on the head. This guy is far enough on the shoulder of an open faced wave that he should not have to worry about being run over.

i hear you man, no one intensionally runs people over even the photographer has varified this that its an accident, like the captain said prity sums up most peoples feeling when they are concentrating on riding the wave, the people paddling dont have much to think abt bar paddling out and avoiding people iv surfed plenty of crowded spots and have only ever been hit once and that was my fault for being in way as i didnt think guy was gonna take off and he didnt see me right in front of him as he was looking down the line concentrating on drawing his line and i admit that so everyone else getting in the way chill the fuck out accidents happen.

A learner in a crowded lineup is as safe as a drunk driver on the road. No your limits. Obviously a learner paddling across the wave with on coming traffic. Paddle into the whitewash if your going to be in some ones way. Problem today IS everyones learning to surf but nobodies learning the rules.

ur key point their grandfield is that those guys are pros at pipe and have probably got a lot more skill than most people u cant just paddle up the face of a wave hoping the guy is a pro surfer and going to get out the way, not saying the guy surfing isnt completely blameless but tbh their both planks!

grandfield's avatar

grandfield Jun 16, 2010 Rating: 0

CaptainGoodVibe - even though he may have the right of way, its the ultimately surfers responsibility to avoid a collision. Have you seen all the pro's in pipeline avoiding crowds duck-diving through the face ??? With your attitude, they would cut up to 20 people on a single wave ahahha.

surfer is outrunning the pocket, gunning it straight for the shoulder. could of easily avoided the guy and not compromised his ride. hard to tell who is in the wrong, sometimes shit just happens. sucks for both though. paddler's leg is hurting, and the surfer probably feels like an ass. in any case, we've all been in the way before, and had some waves ruined by people being in the way. mistakes happen, but it is never okay to run someone over.

Mikepike's avatar

Mikepike Jun 16, 2010 Rating: 2

All I'm going to say is that it takes two to tango. There are inevitably so many variables contributing to such situations - rip, speed of wave, how fast the previous section broke, and so on... From my experience, such situations can usually be avoided if both parties involved play nicely. As stupid as the chap about to get sliced might have been to get into such a position, I'm sure matey on the wave could have also made some small adjustments to avoid the impending impact. Maybe the guy surfing aint that great, maybe he aint got too much control over his board... Who know's. Definatley takes two to tango though!

CaptainGoodVibes-SuperPig's avatar

CaptainGoodVibes-SuperPig Jun 16, 2010 Rating: -8

Well said mate. The surfer should not have to check the shoulder for kooks paddling up the face. The surfer has the right of way, paddle in to the white-water/ impact zone but not the easy option. Sit on the beach is the best option for people like this.

Couldn't agree more - well said. I'm going to stop commenting on this now. Some of the comments up and down this page fill me with disgust. I was bought up with a certain defined ethic in the water, maybe Im just a bit old skool (although I must admit to still being in my 20's), but one thing you don't do is mess around with other peoples well being and health - all for a buzz. Too many local cracking spots I don't even surf now because of twats like matey on the surfboard in this provocative picture. PS - excuse the spelling, at work and really aint got time to give a damn. Big up good times to all the real surfers out there! The rest of you selfish arrogant single minded adrenalin junkies can go funk yourselves...

spot on mikepike, but some surfers are so up themselves that they wouldn't even consider bailing to avoid a collision. I've done it plenty of times. too much bravado and not enough compassion in the line up. sometimes makes me wonder if i ever got into trouble, would anyone help? or would it interfere with them getting a wave?

Mikepike's avatar

Mikepike Jun 17, 2010 Rating: 3

The photgrapher reckons all the surfer was interested in was posing for the camera instead of keeping his eye on the unravelling wave and situation in front of him! To sum it up - I would rather bail a wave than surf over someone, and you don't need to be that skilled to bail! I wonder - if the roles were reveresed in this picture, how polite would the surfer (previous duck diver) be towards the duck diver (previous surfer). We've all been caught on the outside from time to time, we've all had waves ruined by peps on the outside - get over it! Plenty more waves in the sea!
