When will this cultural sickness end?
Earlier today, it was revealed that premium surf magazine Stab had unleashed an expletive-laced invective on small but wonderful bodyboard website Infoamed after it dared challenge a supposition that those standing on surfboards had the right to drop in on those laying down.

Nobody likes a bully.
The world’s largest surf blog, BeachGrit, deeply feeling the injustice, interjected, daring Stab to fight as near its weight class as possible.
Difficult to be in weight class as Stab appears to enjoy many California burritos.

The classic bullying move, to attempt harm on the littles then cowering when called out.
But when will this cultural sickness end?
Tomorrow, BeachGrit begins training in the anti-bullying art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
More as the story develops.
