Mickey was the typical greedy and careless, just abusing. Who can handle that sh*t? Total c*nt not giving a sh*t! Not surprising, always fuking dissapointing.

Yes, the tour, North Point, pumping waves...primal need to perform.

Theres a video of them burying the hatchet.

But I dont think you can really tell from two waves if wright was being greedy. Mendez dropped in on a local as a visitor and should have stayed humble. Just the way it is and always should be. Respect the locals.

Wright was probably wave hogging, Mendez got pissed and wanted to stuff him, he tried and ate it, making him even more butthurt than previously, no good guy in this one.

I thought they were from west Australia but it does say NSW online, so I guess probably not real local status

Wait, Mendes drops in and blames the guy who had priority/was deeper/committed to a barreling wave?

Clearly I know nothing about surf etiquette. Don't care what did/didn't happen earlier. That was a potentially injurious move. If he had a problem with Wright they should have settled it any other place than the face of a wave...

Word is Jesse was waiting for a wave for a couple of hours and Mikey was wave hogging (if he was always in position, good for him).

Nothing wrong with that, but what they're saying is that when it was finally Jesse's turn, Mickey backpaddled him and got the wave. I didn't see a video of that and IMO Jesse should have just kept quiet anyway.

backpaddling sucks but so does whining and overt nationalism

$.02

The one article I've ever read about Owen Wright sort of implied they ruin the sesh wherever they go. Sounded like the Brazzo stereotype, or the overwhelming majority of Floridians.

Don't paddle out for a pro surfer warmup session and expect sportsmanship.

It's not like Mikey was the only guy out there. And everybody else out there was surfing for $. Clearly the entire lineup had it in for this kid, sucks to be that guy. He should have never even got out, waste of energy. I just love the part where he drops in with rail grab and just just gets passed by as if he wasn't even there.

I imagine that most of the good surfers here have all used this move by Mikey many times in their career. What was Mikey supposed to do? Straighten out? Not a chance, take the guy out every time.

Money quote for the erbb:
Brazzo boy just didn't know how to do a proper stuff, plus Mikey has excellent surf-jitsu counter to the backside rail-grab stall takeoff.

Hmm, was a rail-grab even going to be able get going fast enough to make that wave?

Critical wave, DGAF who you are or who is backpaddling who you're a dick to drop in like that.

Would be a pretty tough place to get knocked unconscious or slice an artery.

"But he was backpaddling, hope he learned his lesson!"
