I surf in SC and see those types all of the time. Karma will get them! Innocent people who didn't know trusted the event organizers. No one should EVER laugh when people get hurt. Mean nasty spiritless ghosts. Reply Alex Scorp says: October 19, 2012 at 12:30 am look at all that trash flowing back into the ocean Reply albatored says: November 12, 2012 at 5:21 pm Because they are high… Reply HBCult says: November 14, 2012 at 11:02 pm i guess thats the dangers of standing and watching big waves.

Reply Joe Schmo says: January 19, 2013 at 4:41 am Gee lets see. Massive waves are coming in so, I'll sit precariously on jagged rocks and hope for the best. What a bunch of dumb asses! Reply Skaatje says: January 22, 2013 at 10:52 am Because people are shit. Nothing more to it. Reply Rodd Banas says: February 1, 2013 at 12:39 pm Because they enjoy the surf contest. Reply Sam R says: February 3, 2013 at 7:21 am Because they didn't think anyone got hurt, and they were laughing at the fact everyone got wet? Reply Steve Pacheco says: February 6, 2013 at 10:38 pm surfing is all about getting wet Reply psic88 says: February 24, 2013 at 7:15 pm I think it's if they don't know people are hurt plus they are feeling shock and relief. Reply Allison Taylor says: March 6, 2013 at 3:57 am Hope there was no small kids in the crowd …. Reply Digital Goddess says: March 16, 2013 at 5:24 am what's funny about that?? i dont understand why these people laugh Reply Kamelhaj says: April 1, 2013 at 12:49 am Surf's up!!! Reply DJ D!TCH says: April 13, 2013 at 1:09 pm Because people are dumb enough to stand @ the sea when it storms XD Reply Rico Suave says: May 3, 2013 at 1:11 pm fall on your arse and I'll tell you.

Reply uKNO_ ToxicOSK says: June 29, 2013 at 11:02 pm Lol fail Reply Jim Harris says: July 15, 2013 at 10:21 pm Moonstone Beach in Cambria,Ca. is nicknamed "Body Snatchers" because unsuspecting flatlanders get caught by surges from big sets of waves. It often is as calm as a lake for 30- 45 minutes, then 8-12 big waves hit and clean the beach like a tsunami. Reply F Stanz says: July 23, 2013 at 6:11 am Always good to have a bunch of PA & other electronic gear next to a giant body of water with everyone walking around barefoot. Reply spunkweed69 says: August 4, 2013 at 11:55 am Would of liked to of seen that wave rolling in. Reply CooManTunes says: August 10, 2013 at 6:52 am Never said I didn't do stupid things also….

That wave was strong enough to kill someone if it rammed them into metal. Jesus some morons will laugh at anything. I was concerned and they're laughing. Idiots. Bet they wouldn't laugh if it happened to them. I am astounded at the stupidity of some human beings. Laughing and clapping..OMG!!! Retards. Reply DLSea Music says: May 23, 2016 at 7:43 am Welp… They were told several times not to do that. If anyone got seriously hurt, that'd suck… but it's their own fault! Reply Rieksfier says: June 18, 2016 at 10:57 am Stanley Roberts brought me here. Reply Leif Gw Persson says: August 6, 2016 at 5:46 am IT is tsunami Reply Lydia Whetstone says: September 12, 2016 at 11:33 pm I don't care what warnings were given out, you don't laugh at people getting hurt, unless you're sick in the head or a sadist. You tell a 6 year old not to get up on a table, she does it anyways, falls and breaks a leg or hits her head and is knocked out with blood pouring from her head, are you going to just laugh at her and walk away? Reply oscillatine says: October 20, 2016 at 11:32 pm I am afraid not to understand what a surf contest exactly is, in this case. People have to stay on a shore and wait for a huge wave to surf on ? Reply PLAYERJLC says: December 15, 2016 at 6:39 am Idiots Reply Sandra Bonner says: January 12, 2017 at 7:58 am d00d… all they wanted was a tasty wave and some cool bud!

As a result, several die every year. When l surfed, there were only a couple dozen of us and the crowds were small. No big resorts, no huge crowds. And to go out you have to be towed. The waves have too much force to paddle -out. Reply Try Thinking For a change says: February 24, 2018 at 2:10 am typical fools, laughing while people may have been injured. USA USA USA Reply ryan thesurfman says: March 8, 2018 at 1:37 am how many people got hurt that day…..lucky nothing else happened,hoped they learn something on that day, won't be so lucky next time.
