no credibility for malriders« on: August 23 2009 20:08:00 »
Why is it that there are so many malibu riders around in the year 2009? Is it because they are so easy to ride and make so called surfers look good because they are not good enough to ride a shortboard properly? Or are their surfers that are into vintage style stuff, like vintage cars and antiques? Either way I just cant give them credibility as real surfers unless they do it for a bit of sideline fun because the waves are too small, or they are riding a pussy wave at magic left or san juan in LU. Malibu's had their place in the 60's and early 70's and thats where they should of stayed. Anyone under the age of 40 that is constantly riding a mal cant possibly be regarded as a real surfer in this day and age. Very similar to a bodyboard rider.

I ride a shortboard when the surf is small and mushy , but when it gets bigger and the wind swings offshore , I like boards over 9'.............guns or malibu . if you think it is your call to give credibility you must have plenty to spare......most guys on the shortboard pro circuit ride malibu's sometimes when they free surf, and the line-up at Banzai Pipeline on a good day is mostly longboards--- maybe your just behind the times.

Hey Pat, Are you serious? What kind of a wanker are you? Most people at pipe ride either guns or shortboards. Mals went out in the 60's and should of stayed there.Most pro surfers dont ride mals. You stick to your easy, lazy, oversized icecream stick and continue to watch surfing advance without you.

OK-it's easy to see from your name(anti-mal) that your here for no other reason than to get an argument . Good luck- I'm not interested.............we got a new swell comin in the next few days and it will pump ! There will be shortboards , malibu's ,kneeboards ,SUP's ,boogie's and body surfers. We'll all be smilin , and everyone will get their waves - no trippers, and no drop-ins .........I think this is something you have yet to experience.

why would i bother checking a website that i have no interest in? Have you swell with your kneeboards, mals and stupid Sup's (they are technically classed as a boat anyway) and give all the shortboarders the shits. Don't deny that they wont get the shits, because we all know that most longboarders give shortboarders the shits at the best of times.
