This picture sums up a needlessly rubbish session. Dropping in and blocking seemed to be the order of the day on Sunday, worst atmosphere I have ever surfed in. Crowded yes, but one or three idiots that go for every wave regardless and then go right on a left doesn’t help.

this is just stupid.... i'm not a huge fan of the surf ski but that guy was a top rider in his day and is a long time local at tynemouth so what in the hell is everyone doing ignoring him and paddling for his wave? having said that, maybe he snaked that dude 5 minutes before and probably wedged his paddle somewhere he shouldn't have, so who knows whats going on. What i do know is Tynemouth can be a pretty shocking place to surf on a busy day, and if it's 2-3 foot and clean like this then there are probs 50- 100 people in the water who "rip" riding NSP's, 6'6" 3 inch thick round nose fishes and 7'2" guns with a lot of dings in them, hence the aggro.

I wonder if that's the kook that dropped in on the surf-ski. What a prick!!
