Taken at a recent frog comp up the west coast. These guys charged that day in epic booger conditions.

that looks remarkably like a certain right hander that fires only a few times a year near the berg.. Although I've only ever seen it pitch like that once! Insane drop.. insane pic

**epiphany of wisdom** until one has surfed such a wave/spot using any vehicle other than the internet, can the craft of such a rider be brought into question? That is a moment of wet hellfire right there.

Luckily where i surf, we only have a couple of bodyboardes, both are really cool too. One guy gets barreled all the time, the other guy does the drop knee thing all the time, looks like he surfs a dinner plate! And then there is a guy who stands on his head on every wave, thats another story...

*Probably* because he is a stand up surfer, he hasn't tried bodyboarding and so can't say that he doesn't like that activity. However, he has *probably* experienced hordes of bodyboarders snaking waves rather than respecting others in the line up. Although I ride stand up as well, some of my mates are bodyboarders and share the surf with others around them equally. Good times for all. Having said that, a horde of bodyboarding groms infesting a break and snaking waves off others in the line up gives the "bodyboarder" image a bad rap.

I'm curious, you haven't said "I don't like bodyboarding", you've said "I don't like bodyboarders" - Why do you choose not to like people you haven't met based purely on something that they do for fun which is slightly different to something you do for fun?
