However he was paddling out (either from another ride, or to start his session) so it shouldn't be his wave. Yeah this is a form of snaking. A guy did that to me at a spot that is notorious for middle aged long boarders being wave hogs. I caught the wave regardless, dropping in on him.
On the way back out he paddled up to me and complained about the drop in. I told him, "it's my wave you snaked me, I was in position and you were paddling back out and paddled to the inside." He threatened to run me over on the next wave etc.
I've had a fair few yelling matches with guys like this and you just never feel good after it. Best thing to do is keep quiet or keep talking to a minimum. They'll never see it from your point of view so just paddle off. Avoid talking as much as you can as it just escalates the situation and can lead to fists flying.
If you do have a 'conversation' try to remain calm. State your case, ask him why he disagrees, then agree to disagree politely and paddle off. Don't fight as you both look like d1ck heads, you never feel good, even if you win it ruins the session for everyone.
Although I must admit, I do lose it occasionally and it does remarkable things for your wave count as everyone avoids you.
