Surfers right to be total dickheads under threat

Post by pinhead » Sat Mar 02, 2019 3:56 pm

First fines for Jetskis at Kirra, now some lawyers want to sue longboarders who don't use legropes.

Only a matter of time. Part of the reason for the lack of aggro at Bondi is because half the learners are lawyers.

Every second longboarder at Noosa is sans legrope. Fcuk all of them. Mind you half of them are young women in brief bikinis. Sorry Nick. 😎

I got hit in the head by a long boarder, broke my skull in two places and I now have a plate and 4 screws for life.

To be honest if you don't use a legrope you're a farken arse if you take a board out in decent surf.

Can't believe Grooter is upset about having a plate for life.

He did, my point was more that your ability to damage others without one goes up if you come off and said longboard comes flying through the whitewater at you.

What of the plate or my bruised, swollen, partially shaved head post-operation?

Well, we probably agree to an extent and I do put one on if I'm not confident of holding on to it in the surf.
Actually I do wear one anytime I surf a log in crowded surf so I'm not one that people are complaining about.
However, I've never seen a stray board hit someone but attached boards I've seen it regularly.

Of course I'm sure it happens but I think it's less of an issue than retards with no fucking idea out there.
So many kooks put leggies on and bail their boards in front of you. Happens all the fucking time.

I’d agree with that. Only time I’ve been hit in the head is from someone bailing their board in front of me. Had plenty of near misses as well. You don’t see too many blokes sans legrope in Sydney. Well not where I surf. Only on tiny days maybe.
