Me and my mate were just saying the other day that there are more than twice as many surfers today as there was in the early nineties...it goes without saying there will be twice as many twats. You simply would not have seen this nonsense 20 years ago.

where's the glory in being towed into a wave as perfect and manageable as that?

Oh shit, I can see granfield turning up at Lahinch beach on a Saturday morning with his jet ski, stop him quick before they hoist him on the hangin' tree!!

Well then go practice somewhere less crowded, im sure Hossegor wasnt the only place with waves. This is just stupid and is causing unnecessary danger to surfers who actually have the balls to paddle.

What if he is a newbie to tow-in ? Wouldn't it make sense to practice on "manageable" waves rather than starting to learn to use the jet-ski in 40foot swell ? Ye have to stop and think before exploding with rage :-)

Shouldn't be towing in with paddlers in the water

Rule is simple : if some surfers are paddling , tow somewhere else, FAG !!!

The roots of surfing are slowly getting seen off by pricks like this.

Yeah, it kind of goes against the concept of what surfing is about. It's not that big and not very gnarly. The worlds gone to hell in a hand basket when anyone thinks this is ok.
