Violent Surfers Shred Paps Over McConaughey

6/22/2008 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A group of surfers just got gnarly on a group of paps -- all over photos of beach king Matthew McConaughey!

Around 12 photographers were on the beach in Malibu Saturday afternoon trying to get shots of Matty hitting the surf, when an all-out smackdown was laid on the pappers by turf-protecting surfers.

One pap was hit in the face and we're told suffered a broken nose, while another was thrown into some rocks and had his camera smashed. McConaughey was not involved in the ruckus.

Police tell us a battery report was filed by one photographer but no arrests have been made.

A rep for Matthew has yet to get back to us.

LESSON TO PAPS. MM IS NOT WORTH SHOOTING. HE IS UGLY INSIDE AND OUT, OLD NEWS DOING THE SAME OLD BORING WORKING ON HIS BODY. THAT SELFISH LOSER SHOULD BE DOING GOOD SAMARITAN UN WORK AND NOT HANGING OUT WITH JOBLESS DRUNK LOSERS ON THE BEACH.

GO SURFER BOYS!

Force them off the beach, hopefully we can force them off the planet.

Don't worry they cannot sue you, they are all illegals.

The paps did not kill Princess Diana. Her driver that was drunk and speeding killed her. You don't drive drunk and speed to avoid having your picture taken.

Looks like one of the paps took a big stick and assaulted a surfer, and got it back. Forgot to mention that little bit, TMZ?

Both groups are losers.

Pt Dume is a semi-private beach. There is no public access to the water line unless you go through the gates that are always locked. People have been getting beat up at the Point for decades. I will bet that the next step will be paps getting their tires slashed while the go down to the beach. That used to happen to the non-locals that went down to Pt. Dume.

waa waa cry babies    

I like what photog had to say. You know, when you have your picture taken you have to sign all sorts of forms giving permission to use your image, etc.

Paps are out of control.....What happened here and at the airport with Britney Spears shows that there needs to be some type of law to reign them in. Somebody did get hurt, in this case the paps, but one day it could be someone else.

Get a real job!
