I agree soutie, there are some hungry Kints out there who hog the lot, but it think that is more a reflection on the person rather than what there surfing, i longboard and once i catch one always make sure that the next one or two passes me so the lads inside can have a blast, would love to see more of that in the water..

cheers, nice one. To continue my rant though, here is the worst: when a longboarder, who has been on a hog fest with his mates paddles for a set wave only to pull of it at the last moment with a fastidious sour expression ( as if to say 'not perfect enough') so the wave goes through unridden.

That is truly awesome!!........now what if there are five longboarders....and ony three wave sets????......I'll tell you what.......there is going to be a short boarder on the beach taking his aggressions out on a sponger...........all because of you.

I say it counts......as long as a waist high wave splashing over the back of my board counts as a barrel

a couple of those in the water is going to give the longboarders a taste of their own medicine. hog every wave in every set all the livelong day, anyone. what about the longboarders who effectivly SNAKE everyone by paddling miles into position for an approaching set. GREEDY longboarders (i know that is not all longboarders), realise you have an unfair advantage and act fairly, generously and kindly let a few of the set waves through to the shortboarders. thats respect.

If anyone has seen Kainoa McGee stand up paddle at Pipe you would see that you can manouvre just as easily as shortboards but you've got to be very strong in your surfing. So, respect due!

as I find longboards unmanoueverable, this is just a step worse, but I guess if you can do it, why not

maximo respeto para toda la gente que hace paddlesurfing. Respeto tambien deberian tener ellos con la gente que surfea en tabla corta y no querer montar todas las olas

most people make comments bout longer boards cause they cant ride em..... ever try to paddle into a 4-6 ft wave with a stand up board.... AMAZING!!!! beats any otehr rush ive ever had surfing.... its not about being a shortboarder or longboarder.... ride everything ... become a well rounded surfer.... your shortboarding will actually improve.. just ask JOEL TUDOR

thats all very well if you have the time to learn the new skills ( i am sure its tricky) and the money for the board, and you dont mind being a kook all over again.

Stand up paddle boarding is for fags who can't pop up on a surfboard. Way to take on of the most critacal parts out of surfing.

paddle boarding was one of the first methods of surfing as well you douche-bag!

Meunchkkleeerrr III's avatar

Meunchkkleeerrr III Apr 3, 2009 Rating: 21

ahem because 1) when its smaller you get lnoger rides, 2) it is much harder on the upper body for critical manoevres 3) it improves core strenght which improves surfig ability generally 4) you get to hit amercans with paddles 5)go to portugal or hawaii and tell the lads doing this on 6+ waves and getting 2 min rides your opinion and see what happens. That said it is annoying when they catch evry single wave, but hey ho, you choose your board so deal with it. Ps You talk shit.
