YOUR VIEWS ON RIVALRY BETWEEN SURFERS AND BODYBOARDERS :
I respect anyone who does what they do well ; or people who surf because they enjoy it. I just cannot stand the cowboys who have all the gear and no idea ; they just get in the way. I suppose it just comes down to what you enjoy doing - as long as they don`t drop in , who cares ?...and most of the bodyboarders are starting to realise that they are only fourth best anyway.....:
