As an aside, is the guy on the far left drowning a nun?

Haha, It's funny how people get worked up over this sponger when you know the dude in the barrel is only thinking, "OMG best wave of my life!". It's all about the ride dude, just gotta carve a line around the ones that are in the way. =D

Why has a photo caused so much bitching?, and why has most been aimed at us spongers? have i missed something?

Don't know Ive missed it too. Guy paddling out is 10yards away on the shoulder, why would the lucky sod in the pit of that fantastic barrel want to be where the guy paddling is?? Great Photo.

i have respect for those who ride the waves, but after being consistently disrespected and having to weave through people paddling where they know they shouldn't, i get reely mad. im tired of losing waves to people who have no regard to anyone but themselves.

AAaawww! Don't be so nasty to spraynsurf please. He had a moment and he just needs a big bearhug to put a smile on his face again.

we've all done it, that's how we know it's wrong.....you gotta learn somewhere.....you get the fist shock in yer general direction but hey it's all gravy!! don't tell me you've never ended up in the wrong place with some guy rocketing towards ya....and you've nowhere to go......hmmm I think not, what do you do....apologies except your punishment, look a little red in the face and try not to do it again....to the same person that is!!!I think the majority of people who surf do it because they love it....not to have aggro....here's hoping you have a better session next time!!!

dude... dont try and sound all adult now after your whine down below. face it... some people may have fallen off in the wrong place or some may find themselves paddling out in the wrong place... or some just do it cos they're idiots, but dont get so worked up.

Good point stritch.We are out there to enjoy ourselves and seperate ourselves from negs in the process.It doesn't matter where you surf or how,it matters that you are out there doing it and getting stoked.

I love when people say the waves in cornwall are fat and gutless. This shot is worldclass, no questions asked. Sure it gets crowded and there's a bunch of spongers out. Ever surfed pipe????? Where perfect waves break, surfers will flock! Deal with it and have fun.

id like to think the standup is quite content staying where he is in that pit, unless he's a KOOK like you whos afraid of a bit of rough and tumble

man chill, surfing treads shouldnt be like this, look at soccer with them earning quarter a million a week and all the hooligans fighting in places like Poland over a game, my point is surfing is different and we shouldnt hate a type of surfing like bodyboarding or SUPs just cause they can catch the same wave with a bit less effort. i do you really think you comment will mean less people in the water?grow up man and take your aggro somewhere else

true... but this might not be the best spot to surf if you don't like people in the way!
