Wow. Nice to see so much support for the duckies here!
I like how the SUP's think its cute to come onto the scene after only existing for a few years and think they can call us "fringe". All that does is make me laugh, really hard. Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?
Also, just because you survived taking your SUP down Gore doesn't mean you cleaned it. I've watched people style OBJ, Daisy, Pine Creek, Gore, and other outside CO RUNS in duckies and make it look better than some hard shellers. www.cacreeks.com
. Go check out some of the shit those guys are running CLEANLY in their ducks. I have not seen SUPrs do anything remotely close. Oh sure, they "go down" it, but falling off your board fifty times and flailing like a scarecrow in the wind doesn't count.
I think it's great how the SUP crowd whined and bitched and moaned until they got recognition with their own forum, where most of the duckies haven't been too bothered by it because we've gotten so used to just following the boaters forum. It's like the SUP crowd very much WANTS you to KNOW they SUP, where as the duckies just very much to GO boating.
It's also humorous how SUPrs have a sense of entitlement for other boaters respect- they think we need to accept them as full members of the boating community and not disrespect them at all. I've been a ducker for a long time and have never been given respect for my craft. And some of that disrespect came from people who now demand respect for SUPrs!
Good call on the weekend warrior call out Randy. I'm super stoked they made Logan a mod, because he actually gets out and boats all the time! Not once a month or whatever. So tired of being preached down to and controlled by people who boat six times a year.......
