All I am saying is I was there, none of you lot presumably were? Were you? I'm not saying this isn't an issue in the slightest, it quite clearly is, my point was that how is this thread going to solve it, the answer is it isn't. How many of you run national surf contests? I doubt any of you do, and its really quite patronising for some people who have never organised such events to point the finger and tell them how they should've done it. The fact is that yes, mistakes may have been made and i'm sure the WSF will never let that happen again. If any of you knew the boys running the comp you'd know what absolute bollocks you're talking.
@Leven How is it not the NT's responsibilty (or Pembrokeshire National Parks/council whoever!) to put larger bins in place when the small ones are not adequate? Its not just one weekend that this is a problem, its all year. So its not the WSFs responsibility to sort out waste management at a beach that is governed by these local authorities. And yes, mistakes are quite often not apparent until it is highlighted by an incident such as this, but I guess you were perfect from birth so you've never made a mistake in your life. Be honest with yourself, you've done somethings in life that have seemed fine but caused a problem later and you know it.
I am not saying that this is OK,i'm just saying if you want to start stupid threads where you all share opinions from the comfort of your offices and basically just come across like bitchy women then you will achieve NOTHING! The WSF are not run like that, that problem will never happen again and between all the associated authorities it will be sorted and better arrangements made for next time.
For the final time, I am stating that I believe the issue should have been brought to the attention to the WSF/NT first, not by starting a thread like this. All this has done is brought a lot of unnecessary negative attention to the WSF and especially Quiksilver. Both do fantastic work with surfers of all ages and i'd hate to see that wasted over one mistake and a whole bunch of people who can't be bothered to see the wood for the trees. Yes, the rubbish wasn't in any way cool. It won't happen again and thats a fact. If you feel the need to get upset about something then go and stand in a forest shouting "rabble rabble rabble", cos thats about as effective as this thread.
This thread has been "effective " in many ways, not least exposing what an utter , utter arrogant WANKER you are, and if you're representative of the WSF / QS , it's good to get that in the open as well.
Edit - Just seen the responses from MV, good to see - now someone maybe needs to have a think about what this complete MUG Martin gets up to eh.
