booger was on the wave first, look at his line. he's cutting speed to get pitted only to find someone in his pocket. tut tut

its guys like this that put a bad rap on the rest of bodyboarders, but sometimes shit happens.. i mean reading through these comment is disheartening, it doesn't matter whether you stand or whether you lay down, were all out there experiencing the same rush, you look at professional surfers and they dont go and bash on bodyboaders, they've seen first hand the shit some of these boogers can do and that earns em respect. But some bodyboarders, just don't have the same morals as the rest of us, so dont disrespect all of us for one persons actions.

I think the guy in the tube punished the booger afterwards on the beach using chains, a thick squash and permanent marker

I'm in no way rushing to defend boogieists, but if you think about it it with your whole brain for more than thirty seconds, you will realise that there is no way you can judge who dropped in on who based on this photo.

I think they just had on orgy and the sponger just likes to 'hit it then quit it'?

unless the stand up is going backwards, i'd say pretty safe bet the lay down is guilty, and looking at the track on the wave, he's been in the way for a little while by now

archibald is right, the sponge is doing a cutty, not even the biggest kook would do that on take off and you can see a trail from a high line. I'm not saying it is so but it could have easily been a late take off drop in by the stick rider!

Not to hard to see who is nearest the curl or peak, seeing as one is stood in it.

wow. im a bodyboarder and the amount of times ive had surfers drop in on me ive lost count. most of the time its pure accident. a mistake. we all make em. it s the ones that do it on purpose that make me angry. they should be VERY careful about doing that.

Judging by your photo surfshreadcarve, you are from new Jersey? If you are saying the good but not world class banks of Jersey are better than the Irish reefs you need you head examined!

and the fact that he is looking right at the surfer makes it even worse! dumbass spongers, get the dick out of your ass

spongers are faggots. they dont deserve to be on the same beach and they deserve to get dropped in on because they shouldnt be there. try actually learning to surf...much harder. have fun in ireland and britain faggots

sad comment - spoken like a typically very average 'surfer' - core surfers around these parts don't have that same hatred...best you stay home mr average...

bring back corporal punishment. should be a rack reserved on every beach for dicks like that. p.s. every code has the same ratio of morons. given the number of surfers to bodyboarders in Ireland its usually a surfer who drops in on me. (or the never ending line of longboarders who paddle out around me in the line-up and then give me the stink eye for being in their way)

Roach is one of my heroes! Did construction as a pro, just like any normal person that pays bills, but was a rock star among boogers...Can't blame anyone for getting pissed for drop ins...I laugh it off usually and try to return the favor...PARTY WAVE! I went out over the summer with a guy just learning to surf, and he didn't want anything to do with trying to sponge, so when we got out there, the waves he repeatedly said were head high, but only waist, were working him...didn't take any of my advice...probably because I sponge...and then I saw him get ran over while bobbing in the line....I thought he got cut like Parko only on his arm but fortunate for him the fins were dull...so he sat on the beach for hours discouraged....really gotta let people new to it, know the rules and why they're around.....Some people are just buttholes though but good point with the Roach vid!

Nah... It's never acceptable to drop in, even if they deserve it. Droping in on a wave like this though... you should be allowed shoot them.

Dunno, be kind of funny if it was. I you get dropped in on a wave like that, the wave will probably give you a kicking due to the other guys lack of attention/just being an asshole. Found it's best just to wind them up by dropping in on them over and over until they get out. By the way, I'm a sponger, so not biased against the sponger like most on here, just biased against idiots
