I’m not sure what to feel about this. It seems mean spirited. Maybe? It’s also hard to tell 1) If the guy riding the wave was intentionally trying to make contact with another person that maybe was attempting to drop in on him, and 2) If he actually did make contact.
In the case that it was intentional, it’s kind of shitty. Verbal reprimands in the water are one thing, but intentionally trying to cause harm to someone that might steal your wave is another. Especially considering the waves don’t appear that great.
On the other hand, it’s hard to look away. Is it funny? I don’t know. Shocking? Most definitely. A parallel of the absurdity in the current state of the world? Perhaps.
The fast paced heavy metal music is a nice touch, too.
