Wish I had videos of this event. Someone told me something that happened Saturday whilst surfing nice great big perfect waves.
Two dudes, one slighted and both aggressive. Words. Testosterone.
One guy dives to the ocean's shadowy depths, grabs a rock and resurfaces so he can use the rock to break the fins off the other guy's board. HUH??? Who thinks like that?
Other guy paddles away from the aggressor grande.
Deep diving guy, even more frustrated now that he can't break fins, hurls the just-gotten rock at paddling away guy.
Retreating guy turns at the least opportune moment to hurl insults at deep diving guy just in time to meet the oncoming rock. In the nose!
When engaging in the pursuit of happiness, get not so enthralled with that pursuit that you end up in handcuffs with a knee in your back and parking lot sand in your eyes nose and mouth.
And, if a conflict gets extremely out of hand, bow the hell out before you break your nose and lose all your front teeth.
I wasn't there and wasn't involved in case you were wondering.
In many aspects of life and in most pursuits, there are always assholes. Things always work out for the best if you ain't one of them!
Hi, my name is
David Benjamin and I started swimming in Chappaqua, NY., swam for Badger swim team, Mercersburg Academy, NC State University, then Westport YMCA masters. I got bored of the ol' back and forth of competitive swimming and the high cost of skiing. Surfing took over and I never looked back.
