Can the tour! who are these surf heroes? junkies, thugs, and phycos. All of the sponsers dollars have created little surfing bratts.Competition money and fashion has ruined the surfing vibe,may their labels,pin up boys, and coastal exploiters get back on land to roll in the dollars.Leave the ocean to the amateurs who surf only for fun and the love of it.

The worst thing about surfing is pro surfers and sponsored surfers. I remember watching “Bustin’ Down the Door” and thinking these are the guys who ruined surfing. What an absolute disgrace most pro surfers are, you paddle out somewhere like Manu Bay and visiting ‘pros’ from The Mount think they have the right to drop in on anyone because they are ‘sponsored’ by RPM; what a load of crap! The real heroes of surfing are the hard working kiwis who go for a surf after a hard days yakka not the spoilt brats who do nothing for society and are celebrated for it!

Sunny Garcia is a cock, everyone knows it and I suspect he may even have an idea.......he's not even tough or big, you never see him fighting with people his own size or bigger than him. In most countries they call guys like this bullies. Kick him out of Aus I reckon!

big boys with even bigger egos! anyone that behaves like this in the surf i just a pumped up meat ball! i hope the set of the day came in while they were wallowing in the shallows! if sunny had just dropped in on this geezer and carved his name across the fellas waves i would still respect him...unfortunately his mug will probably still grace our glossy pages.

I think he should have let his son take it as long as he wasn’t too badly shaken, good character building for his future travels alone when he has independence. If he travels alone to far away places, he needs to think for himself. We can all sense what’s not going to be good for us if we have our awareness tuned in. If he (Sunny) was that bent on getting the guy, you would think a more discreet approach would have been more appropriate given his public profile.

Scumbucket piece of shit. That cunt needs to be chucked in the ring with someone his own size, and have a beatdown thrown out to him. Imagine that cunt coming over here, paddling out at your local, and thinking that he has dibs on whatever wave comes through just because he's surfed the tour and thinks he's tough and hot shit. The old old sour ape's just pissed cause he's getting schooled by kids quater his age. Your days have gone Sunny, go back to the zoo you animal

Kia ora .What a sad day for the sport of kings. No one really benefits from distructive behaviours and violence has no place in surfing .It is against everything the great Duke Kahanamoku shared when he spread modern surfriding around the the world , even to Australia . Many can harness the physical ability of surfing but not always its true spirit. Greedy immature egos will always produce foolish immature results , that does nothing to uplift us or the sport / lifestyle we love.I feel sorry for all those involved in that disgraceful incident that discredited that event and all those associated with it. No matter who is in the right or wrong , nobody is better off from what happened . Let the court pass judgement and provide justice to those concerned ,learn from it and move on , restoring surfing to the noble sport it should be rather than a haven for those of low character, unworthy to carry on this great legacy of the Duke .
