Perfect waves for bodyboarders!! Haavy and bareling... we got a similar spot here in Rio... the bigger days it gets just like that....

45 inches of dung is that grocery snake I dropped in Nova Scotia. The Jim Henson parallel should just read Chenson rhymes with Henson (leaving out the Jim part allows it to flow). The rest of it is just not very clever I am sorry to say. I do have a hoodie though. My rebuttal might go “I do have a hoodie, and my booties smell like pee. If you know about the muppet show, there was time to get a degree.” See how that has a certain rhythm AND it attacks your inability to complete sentences or form a cohesive attack?

Whoops!! I did not mean to cause any agro - I just love the power in the photo, with the previous wave still dripping down the rocks in the background. I know from stuffing the a waterhousing into the bottom when duck diving one of these that there is only a couple of feet left at the bottom - and you can see that the lip is full of sand to beat you with when you get it wrong. Whilst being a stand up myself I have full respect for these guys that take this wave on on in a big swell, and neap tides, when the stand ups give it a miss. Check the new Polzeath photos tomorrow, I have just put up another of this guy from the same session - not being so shy this time! Spongefreak - no watermark as I completely forgot!!

Sorry, I missed your question! I mainly use a 1D MkIII with an EF600, often with a 1.4 converter, as was probably the case with this shot.

You guys! What’s the issue here? The photo is class, its chock full of drama, matey boy is charging a dark one and fair play to him for taking it on. Half the people who comment on these photos wouldn’t charge this wave, in fact the last thing they probably charged was their credit card to renew their annual subscription to Gay-Surfer Magazine. Get your waves however you can people, it aint what you ride its how you ride it. (well..that and how many cool stickers you have on your rear window)

At the top end of any sport their are some exceptional talents. Yeah slater, mike are clearly talented and a joy to watch but if you stand-ups who spend your days mouthing off how spongers cant charge then your very narrow minded. Body boarding is becoming more and more into the public eye with certain Cornish boys making better and better dvds (brushed aside and la familiar of the top of my head) Some of the waves would make you sticks shit your pants. Im not saying Im in that circle but you make a statement 'like spongers cant charge' is clearly bull shit. If you still dont believe me watch 'the road' Brendon Newton and you might just change positions on the wave. awesome pic.

Aah.. the old surfer vs. bodyboarder debate been going for YEARS, and probably will for many, many more. I just don't see the point of the arguing/debating, nothing ever gets resolved and that's why these debates are STILL going after all these years... Sick wave brud

I love all this bodyboard surfboard shite, I have both! when I cant be arsed to stand up I bring out the sponge and when I want to make the effort I bring out the Longboard. I've even got a shortboard but thats because I sometimes get delusions of grandeur.

Board? What board? I don't see no board. Dude is one of those tourists who head to the closest rock to the break to get a photo of some spray and got swept in. Now he's coming up for the last gasp before a serious pommeling. Take that one home to show the neighbors what you did on your holiday.

BWS=MIA/NORCAL3074 days ago -2 Rating Rate Positive Rate Negative
heres the difference in both surfing and body boarding. surfing takes balance, good wave selection, stretegic thinking, and you have to be an athlete.... body boarding only takes the balls to get out into the line up; mind you so does surfing plus surfers have a bigger board to duck dive! No balance is really needed in boogie boarding. wave selection is still a factor in both sports b/c if you pick the wrong wave your fucked, but as for thinking about what to do next on the wave and to say you charged the wave does match surfing do to the lake of talent it takes to perform a trick and lake of tricks you can acually perform... sorry to say surfing over comes on gnarlyness but its cool if you want to go boogie board a wave just remember who has the right of way the guy with the sharp ass fin thats running over you at a very high speed!!

Looking at it I'd say he could be shortboarding and he's commited to a bottom turn there. The trough is just so deep below the level of the water around it due to the reef it makes it hard to tell??? Stop exchanging the banter & appreciate the picture eh? I can't believe that's somewhere near to Polzeath!

ok. seriously. get over youselves. its really getting sad guys. get yourselves into therapy and tell them that you just cant get on with your lives ever since bodyboarders started charging. they will laugh your asses rite out of the office. surfers have become the most insecure people on the planet. not even joking, i feel bad for you guys

did you ever think people are just joking? Seems like you're the insecure one......
kook sponger3074 days ago -2 Rating Rate Positive Rate Negative
im the insecure one? these guys are going around bashing the little guy just cuz they like a different style of wave riding, but im the insecure one? ya maybe your right... but anyone with the most basic understanding of the human mind can see whats going on under the surface so to speak. you are INSECURE because bodyboards are fucking gnarley. maybe quit surfing and read a book

Hes right. But less than 10% of bodyboarders actually charge. Most spend their time frothing in 2 foot sloppy beachbreak...

brooks999 do you have down's syndrome?
Pocket3074 days ago Unrated Rate Positive Rate Negative
Nope, your sentiments block your judgement. You are hypocritical - "surfers have become the most insecure people on the planet" Not all, therefore you are forming a group stereotype yourself. "i feel bad for you guys." Then sympathize. You are also trying an approach like you have higher education, but, "...anyone with the most basic understanding of the human mind can see whats going on under the surface so to speak." If it was most basic it would not be 'under' the surface, as in out of sight, it would be 'on' the surface and in plain sight. Therefore someone with a basic understanding would be able to comprehend. "Maybe quit surfing and read a book." I think you need to re-read all the books you have ever picked up.

Chenson rhymes with Jim Henson, and that poor soul is dead, Yet here's another muppet, with nothing in his head. Talks some smack and calls you down, got a board and thinks he's cool, Talks a lot like Doobie though, and boy was a tool. Bodyboard? 'That's gay' he says - 'your not hot like me', Still goes home at sundown, with boots that smell like pee. He has the shoes, the hoodie too - he thinks that he has class, But when mommy catches him on MSW, she'll surely spank his ass. He's a punk, a little shit, who doesn't know the stoke, And everything he types online is just a friggin' joke. Go home chenson, or Doobie, or whomever you are today - Boys who call 'dig dragger' are the only ones that 'er gay.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWN! thats an awful lot of talk about nothing really. Like the poem tho 45 that made me chuckle!! All im gonna say is, there are good surfers on both sides and bad also, but at the end of the day you're in an online forum with no way of proving anything so why bother? Feel free to have a bit of banter and rip on each other for fun but leave the attitudes at the door yeah, cos no one really cares!
