All this shit which is harder is very boring!! At the top level of any wave riding I think it takes the same amount of skill.The further you come down the levels maybe surfing takes longer to master then the boog but who actually gives a shit,I live miles from the coast,so when i get there,if there are waves I love the sponge,lid whatever!! but I am also learning to surf,but people need to understand it's a matter of choice and I choose bodyboarding.Just enjoy the waves,,,,,when we get some in North Devon!!

I'm guessing it's gotta be pretty tough on that little slippery piece of foam without benefit of skegs. Either way, he's going down into a bunch of sand from the top rope. Props.

I recently suggested to the wife..."honey buns why dont you try to body board, that way the surf board doesnt beat you down when you get tossed and also it will prop up your knockers something righteous!" her response..."No way bodyboarding is so gay"....and according to her, she is right 99.99% of the time.

dk is very hard to master just like standup is very hard to master but i'm guessing there arent many masters of any discipline on these threads otherwise we'd be the lads with the photogs taking pro pictures of us

we dropknee'ers CAN make the transition to stand-up eyes closed!

"it's harder than surf". are you serious? if that's the case then you should be able to make transition to stand up stuff eyes closed. you lids are completely lost here, how in a hell people take on bodyboarding in a first place? lazy cunts not wanting to learn stand up. huge wave count riding prone. ha ha. bring on the minus ratings, this dropknee shit is so gay that i can't believe grown ups waste their time doing that shit. why in a hell you always bring up how hard it is because there's no fins on your board? so stupid comment that, if you are so good in what you are doing, riding finless piece of foam, then all of you should start to ride alaias. by bodoboarders logic that's an ultimate high. for sure you can dropknee alaia if standing up is too hard thing to do. more crew on alaias equals more waves for the rest of us.

haha to true, most surfers start out body boarding but naturally progress to stand up and never go back. Normally because it looks stupid and knee boarding don't even get me started.

wish i could remember!!! - something pro-bodyboarding, but nothing overly inflammatory. i might have indirectly implied pdr was a prat - which i'm guessing pdr might be a little peeved by? us multi-craft, sponge-preferring spongers can be cutting bru

You surfers have no idea. dropknee takes just as much skill at surfing or prone. And anyway Lackey can surf he just chooses not to

Only kooks will put down a killer wave rider because of the craft he chooses to ride. Try doing what lackey is doing on that wave... on any craft you choose. I'm pretty sure you'll fail miserably

i disagree muchly, really don't understand all the sponge/stand up bitchiness, both take just as much skill in my opinion, sweet wave, nice pic and that is someone with balls out skill no matter how you look at it
