He probably twisted round, dropped in the pit, lost any speed he generated, and then got swollowed up by the white water... just like EVERY OTHER SINGLE F*CKING WAVE A DICK DRAGGER CATCHES... has guts tho, gotta give him that.

tulamben....are you reading the same page as me ? scroll down a bit...(grandma lips) tjo, i can't beleve you've never heard of that one....the list is endless on booger jibes. I'll give you a list if you want...and here's a question for you.....what exactly do you know about gay activities....?????? And spengler i agree, noy every bodyboarder is the hell man that mr solomen is, but what i was talking about the roll that he is pulling. There are a lot of spongers that can pull this move, yes it maybe on smaller waves but it's still a cool move. i never seen a stand up do it. I'm noy saying they can't, i've just noy seen it.

You do have a point spengler but that theory also applies to all wave-riders in this country, it's not that we don't want to boost on huge wedges.. its the fact there arn't many opportunities to get good enough, to be confident enough to ride beasts like these. That 1% that are good enough (in this country) have been lucky enough to have been able to travel a lot and have got their confidence up that way! Lets face it, if your not on the west or north coasts, your basically screwed consistency wise! Like me :(

spengler arlington-brough Jul 30, 2010 Rating: 3

to be fair, this is not what toast riders do, is it? this is what Eddie Solomon does. Are you comparing what you and 99.9% of british spongers do with what eddie solomon is doing here... surley not? I once bought a Surfer mag with Mike Stewart on the cover. The tag line was "Is This the best surfer in the world?" quick answer... no, it's a bodyboarder.

tjo Jul 30, 2010 Rating: 1

sweet! "gay on a tray", G.O.A.T. is that what you guys refer to yourselves as? as far as gay activities go, this has got to be the coolest! go G.O.A.T boarders!!!!!!

Fuck that.....do do bodyboarding fags use their penis as a fin? I mean that must be why sliding out is such a common trick. Get on a surfboard there were a few surfers out that day.

Stand up would be running for cover/bailing out.... in fact he would probably be sitting on the beach with his board trying to look cool.

tjo's avatar

tjo Jul 29, 2010 Rating: 8

yeah, or maybe they would paddle out anywhere else in the area that was actually breaking good. bodyboarders rule the wedge and all shore dumpers like it. ever seen one cruising a nice pointbreak? ... boring ... great shot though, commitment out weighing commonsense once again!!

Shorey's avatar

Shorey Jul 29, 2010 Rating: 2

or paddle out and just paddle round in circles and tell all his mates how he scored huge wedge..

It's good to look at life from a different perspective, and surfing certainly helps you do that. Unfortunately it also helps you see it from perspectives you probably shouldn't. Excellently timed shot, hope that dude got home without too much trauma
