No BR17, some months ago I had a South Aussie website and while browsing the other day I came across this site and whilst checking it out I found some of my pics on it.
Now if the bloke had the curtsey to ask me if he could use them or not I would have said yes...don't you think that would've been the right thing to do?

Too true BR17, when you get an opportunity once or twice a year when some place is going off its head and you take a piece of your own precious time to take some pics to share with others it tends to make you think, why bother!
Mind you this is a good forum and where I can I'll keep posting pics for the crew in here who'll appreciate them :-)

I just checked out the site and they've taken my mates photos off another site too. Not good at all.
Half the information on there is dodgy as well. Incorrect tidal information, quality of waves, the list is endless.

Funny to see these guys stealing photos when they have such a strong line on it themselves...

Is it possible to block predators like this from accessing one's own website? That would nip this in the bud without a (legal) shot being fired....
