Impossible to know the whole story from one photo, but this is uncalled for by the surfer. Safety first, always. I have no problem with kayakers at my beach. I find them to be more courteous than most surfers.

Ok guys thought it was time to tell the whole story, as I took the pic. You ought to know im mostly a kayaker, and the 12 year old in the boat is my son Jack. beutifull evening nice clean wave on the beach which is 400yards from our house absolutely packed after school session. the Surfer "jordan' age 16 had been on the wave for a while but mis judge whether he would make it round the front or back, jack stopped paddling to help him but the inevitable happened. both lads were very courteous to each other and made sure each was Ok before continuing jack thinks with hind sight he should or made more effort to go behind earlier. but these 2 boys have both been having quite a giggle since, about all these harsh comments. Theres no problem with courtesy here.

Hard to say what is going on here. Looks like either the kayaker was paddling straight out and the surfer is endangering both of them by running him over for sport or the kayaker is chasing the green part of the wave thinking he could get around the surfer and avoid the whitewater but didn't make it. I am a surfer that first learned about the ocean in a kayak.

I have been a lifeguard and surf instructor on the north and south coast and been surfing 14 years. I tolerate most things and surfing to me is my place to chill out and enjoy life but even the other day there was a bloke on a kayak catching every wave gave no one else a chance as they are able to catch waves unbroken alot further out this is why there is friction with certain surfing sports.

What a doucher. Learn to share the ocean. Noone owns the ocean, and if you act like you do your being ignorant. I love surfing, but I have met some of the most rude, ignorant, stuck up ass holes in my life out in the water. I don't care how good you are, I will treat you as you treat me. Get off the high horses and treat people like human beings... Like damn.

What are you on about? You're making an assumption of an individuals attitude based on a single photograph. You are a Twit.

Why can't people respect others preferences? Noone owns the ocean and you shouldn't act like you do. I personally prefer to surf, but the water is for everyone, and what that kid did looks like it was done on purpose, not to mention he looks like a kook anyways. Learn to share and get off your high horses and act like you got two sense... damn.

one day kayaks will get the respect they deserve. you surfers think you are so cool with your tubes and airs. kayakers rip way harder and we strongly dislike all surfers except for bodyboarders and SUPers.

"good" surfers behave like this all the time, Kayakers do go for perhaps more waves than they leave for others, but then so do longboarders and people of a high standard. Theres selfishness in all aspects of life and the only times i've ever surfed and experienced genuine wave sharing is when its me and mates only on an empty peak. Can't beat that.

I’m a surf Kayaker. But before the "children" here make any comments, I don’t paddle on the river because it is the surf I love. However, what I don’t like about surfing is the hostility between people out on the water. I have been hit by more board surfers than I have accidently hit while surfing a wave. If you have had bad experiences with kayakers getting in your way or knocking in to you, remember accidents happen. If your mother hadn’t of shown you patients and love despite you being an accident, you wouldn’t be here to enjoy this earth! So what ever method you choose to surf these most excellent waves, keep your negative comments to your self and show a bit of respect to each other! And educate your friends in the etiquette of surfing! Great photo BTW...!

Nice, 'how to intimidate a bobber'. Hopefully he got out afterwards, and polished his helmet.
