I can't believe the guy in the second clip just surfing around the kids. Would he not have tried to help them.

That is the arrogance and selfishness of some surfers. Part of the reason I dont surf. Too many selfish cocks.

For all you know he's going for a kid on those rocks. Don't be so quick to judge.

That's what I was thinking. Faster to stand up and pump so you can get in to where you are needed, than to surf prone in, if you are good.

one surfer went right by their heads and did not look like he was trying to stop , and another right behind them just getting started trying to get up , a good hard thump in the head would not have helped the kids chances much
