The moshing was fun, but you don't really get to enjoy the music when you’re at the area I'm at, unless your right by the barrier, as it provides you with support. I busy watching for people running into me during the mosh, at the same time from above, watching out for the damn body surfers. The body surfers always end up kicking you in the head/face when you least expect it. I really don't mind the body surfing, but some people just shouldn't be up there. If your too big, please don't body surf.
I'm actually surprised by the ratio of body surfers, I thought it'd be like a 9:1 ratio of guys to girls, but it turned out to be more like 1:1, an even number of girls went over my head as guys. It honestly makes me wonder, who really gets that violated up there, guys or girls. The girls seem to fly across fast to the front, while the guys slowly traverse atop the crowd. The audience where I was, had a majority of guys. Guys grab don't they? ughhh, I mean there was some fine ladies surfing up there. The guys that were body surfing above me were huge, damn; I'm just a small Asian boy in the middle of this massive crowd (I heard the crowd was at about 7,000 in capacity). At one point, I got fed up, and just tossed one of the surfers on the ground, he had probably 100lbs on me, so there was no way I would of been able to even keep him up there (for some reason space started to open up around me) even if I wanted to. The space that was opening up, was well... for the mosh-pit of course haha, oh man its fun in there, just running into people getting pushed around for no reason at all.
