To be fair, if you go down to Littlehampton when there is any sort of swell running, the odds are that you will see ski boats full of brave and cocky lads get as far as the river mouth and then swiftly turn round and go back to the pub!
Conditions can be quite "sporting" on a good day. I know what sort of boat I would rather be in (or is that on?)
With respect, I've spent plenty of time in and around the waters of littlehampton and it's sand bar, both racing and pleasure boating. The 12-18" swell in 'action man Andres' pictures are pretty average for that area! And whilst I agree that some would turn round and head for the pub, they wouldn't all be hardboaters! The big Yawn for me is the standard 'I'm a bloody hero' shit, that so many wannabe's in thier blow-ups think is thier duty!
I'm sure Andre is a hero of the highest order, and as he says, every hardboater is a poof, scared whitless of a 6" chop! yeah right! you'd never find a ribber turning round would you!
Shape up fellas, your living in cloud cuckoo land.
