ok. so... i have nothing personally against spongers. ok ya i guess i do. they sit there (in our way) floating around like little bouys, waiting for a wave thats just gonna crush them anyway. doesnt look like fun to me even though its so easy to lean down a wave. skimming takes so much more skill and talent, and its a thousand times more fun. and whats with them taking our siders? the water is shallow enough where they can stand and they hardly ever bother looking back to see if a skimmer is coming up behind em. i apologize if a similar thread has been posted. one day they will learn theyre lesson.
