I apologize for my fellow Welshmen. They are not used to having attention of a front page picture. So they have left their sheep for a few minutes to comment and are confused. Sorry. (great pic, love it)

Poor old surfer duuuudes you lot are just p155ed none of you can surf aswell as 100mphgeezer with your shaved planks of wood and your wax combs in your pocket maaaarrrrrn.I also doubt wether any of you have the shores of Blighty to compete in competitions to show your skills/ability?wheres as the geezer man has travelled far and wide and is respected far and wide in the art of "Freeriding" so surf duuuudes stick it up ur hairy planet saving tree hugging arses,this will enable you to pleasure yourselves while pleasuring sheep and whales/dolphins

@ DOger, I'll have a chat with you on the beach mate same as 100mphsteve and ask you to take me out back, I don't enjoy the paddle out on big days or onshore mess, and to be honest (this is to everyone) does anybody enjoy a long tough paddle? I can't believe you guys are getting so much shit about being in the surf.

Petrol heads, I don't get it. When there are so many different ways (shortboard, longboard, bodyboard, bodysurf, SUP, goatboat, kneeboard) to ride the pure energy of a wave, why do you guys choose to ride a petrol-fuelled machine to ride the wave unnaturally? It don't the sense make. Ya dig?

Being moved by the energy of a wave that has travelled hundreds or thousands of miles is an amazingly natural experience. Revving up and burning off ain't so much.

At the end of the day Motorsport and all the other activitys I listed are huge industry's so each to there own I guess .I have tried surfing a few times an did enjoy it but I much prefer my ski . Just personal preference

Jet skiers are chavs lol a little bit of generalisation there bud . Is everybody from Wales into sheep ? Is everyone who owns a smart car gay ? For someone so at piece with himself and mother nature you seen a bit angry and blinkered in your ideas . I'm personally not lover of the shorts over wetsuits look either though lol. As for some of you guys worried about the pollution I'm sure all your gear is locally sourced ,nothing nasty like plastic fins or fibreglass boards . I'm sure you use leashes made from hand woven hemp and wooden boards hand whittled into shape after you have planted 5 replacement trees ! Those big wave surfers getting towed in must really make you angry "It's just not pure man " Right now wheres my sunglasses and fake tan I'm off to the sugar hut clubbing with all my chavvie mates bet you well gel lmao

Jet skiers are just sea chavs. Chavs are generally afraid of the ocean and don't understand its complicated and beautiful rhythms, the ebb and flow of engery both dangerous and sublime, her wonderous power, grace and gifts she gives us both as surfers and a species. I dont like the sound a jet ski makes though, rubbish.

Some people seem very focused on the fossil fuel aspect , so It fair to say you don't own a car , use public transport never fly or take boat trips and live and work in a Caron neutral environment ? And as for wasting fossil fuel if you've ever been on a jetski you would know that it's not a waste

smellyoldwasp Nov 25, 2011 Rating: 0

I was there that day, jet ski was rubbish, in fact the surf was rubbish, 2 ft at the most and crumbly as hell, the waves in that pic have been photoshopped. And the paddle out took about a minute.

I've been Surfing all my life. As soon as I could afford it I've had jet skis too but I still prefer surfing by a long shot. This guy is bloody super dooper! A bit sad a few people have obviously got a bit tetchy just because he can afford a jet ski/ has bigger balls than them or has the initiative to think outside the box and not follow suit of everyone that has started to be a cool dude surfer in the past few years back in the UK. As for the comment about burning fossil fuel? Really? I might blame the fact it's raining in Australia right now on him and his mates in that case.

Will keep a mind and eye open for jet skiers that understand where they are and what they are doing ! for the point made about surfers using jet skis to get into big waves I would suggest most if not all are surfers originally who learnt to use jet skis in order to tow so not needing jet skiers - just jet skis - one question from me is do you or have to tried surfing to discover how waves behave without the on tap boost to make sections or get out of trouble?

jet blaster's avatar

jet blaster Nov 25, 2011 Rating: 0

Good and bad in all sports and walks of life I'm just saying you can't judge everyone on maybe a few you've met I can assure you that the ones skiing in these pictures take what they do seriously and would never put any one in danger they've skied all over the world in competitions they're not out to in danger anyone or go crazy and ruin everyone elses fun.

@ 100mphsteve, if I ever see you at Llangennith I'll ask you to get me out back that paddle is a killer and never guaranteed, you could be me best mate like a wave taxi, I'm a hippy at heart but still fly over the globe when I get the chance,it looks like you know what your doing out there so seems safe to me, unlike some canoes coming at me sideways that I've had to duck tonnes of times I wonder if the guys slagging you off would except your help if they got in trouble or hurt out there? There we go that's what I think

I was at another spot a while back , we were getting the usuall dirty looks and your not welcome here attitude from a couple of people there . 10 mins later the same woman comes running over to us " can you help that man out there he's in trouble " we did he was tangled up in his own leash ! Guess we have our uses ! I must say MOST of the surfers I have spoken to have been nice and polite as are we, but like the original comment on this pic some people are very jealous and petty . See you in the surf !

If you look at each picture there is no surfers in sight I for one would not want to harm any surfer or swimmer or anyone else enjoying the sea we are pro freeriders competing around the world and we train all over the uk and southen ireland we would not want to damage our sport, freeriding is very small sport probably only 30 max riders in the uk I'm very vigilant when riding and give surfers a wide berth when riding,we are not mindless thugs we have a passion for riding surf,you should have come and seen me on the beech if you had a problem.

you own a surf board not the water you ride it in, the ocean is a big open area, we always keep clear of any surfs so whats the problem? is it coz we can ride more than 4 waves in a day? when surfs ride big waves what are they towed in on??????? o yes a jetski.lol. as we have said we are a small group that love riding jetskis in waves, we might ride your spot once a month surly this is not a problem? seams to me watching lots of sufing videos on utube that jet skis are used alot in your sport towing/camera shots/rescuing. please state if a surfer has been injured by a stand up craft in the uk. chill out you do your thing we will do ours.
