What is surf science? Is that like watching ER and calling yourself a doctor? I've studied oceanography but surf science? it's like Jordanology!

Come on devonmatt, get with the programme, stoked247 studies surf science, he's in the know, if he say's were all kooks, then I guess were all kooks. Never mind the fact that he seems to be slightly outnumbered, doesn't have a clue what he's talking about, appears to be a narrow-minded... he studies surf science... nuff said... lmfao!

For someone who is meant to be studying Surf Science, and likes people to know about it, you seem to have a rather uneducated understanding of the subject matter... I wonder who the real kook is... I'm sure Surf Science will give us the answer though...

Maybe he was just paddling back out from having the sickest deepest late take off barrelling set wave, and with every last ounce of strength he decided to make the most of this very perfect, very empty, very glassy and probably very hollow shoulder! Why be critical..... just enjoy the shot you f**king knob head!

What a waste. He should have taken advantage of the keg behind him.

luckily that is not likely to happen. the vibe at my local is generally pretty humble, stoke and people enjoying the company and achievements of eachother.

the arsehole thing isnt aimed at you specifically, just a general observation.

Thanks for the advice, but I'd much rather come over there and show you how to pull into a tube or two. From the looks of your profile pictures all you are good at is getting axed by this playful wave.

best you stick to stuart beach then.

StuartBeachBeardo's avatar

StuartBeachBeardo Feb 8, 2011 Rating: 0

I appreciate the healthy dialog and no doubt would enjoy surfing with all of you sometime in the near future. However, I still see some guy wasting the best part of a barrel section on a pretty sick wave by shoulder-hopping on the inside.

soutie's avatar

soutie Feb 8, 2011 Rating: 3

but you said "what a waste". i doubt the surfer would agree, looking at the pic. "what a beaut" is more like it.

soutie's avatar

soutie Feb 8, 2011 Rating: 0

i am pretty sure he wanted to be there, too deep on the take off and you wont be makin it.

StuartBeachBeardo's avatar

StuartBeachBeardo Feb 8, 2011 Rating: 0

You guys are a riot! Not once did I say this guy couldn't surf. All I said was had he dropped into this one a bit sooner he would have pulled into a pretty sick pit. What's wrong pulling in to a tube every once in a while? I bet if you asked him about this one after he saw this picture he would agree.

Didier Feb 7, 2011 Rating: 0

God, yeah, what a dick, who would dare take off on a wave like that, i mean everyone knows waves just stop breaking at a certain point, what a ridiculous thought that the wave would carry on breaking over him.

padcrawf's avatar

padcrawf Feb 7, 2011 Rating: 0

judging by his stance, you can see he's an accomplished surfer.Sometimes when your'e not in prime postion,you shoulder hop.He's gonna have a great wave & probably a fun little barrel you wally.

stoked247's avatar

stoked247 Feb 7, 2011 Rating: -2

Erm, yeah, the keg behind him that's about to pinch, and the wedgy section infront of him, that's about to gape...totally dude.

I'm sorry guys, I didn't realize shoulder-hopping was this popular on the other side of the pond.
