Justin Bieber

Bodyguard Attacked Over Wipeout Pic

According to Aussie Surfer

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber sucks on a surfboard -- and one of his bodyguards harassed a real surfer into erasing his photo evidence of JB going all barney in Australia ... this according to the surfer. 

The local surfer dude, Kes Weartherm, tells us he was catching waves in Byron Bay on Wednesday ... when Bieber and his entourage rolled up with surf instructors.

Kes says he snapped a pic of Bieber trying to get up -- but a bodyguard immediately ran over, flipped out, and wrestled the phone from his hand.

According to Kes ... locals came to back him up, and forced the guy to return the phone.

Kes was pissed, but says he decided to delete the pic anyway because the bodyguard kept whining. No one was injured, and no cops were called.

Funny thing is ... plenty of other photogs on the beach took pics -- including the one above -- and even Bieber posted a shot of himself wiping out.

I dared to check if "local surfer dude, Kes Weartherm" really exists - anyone can do a simple Google search - see for yourself - as at 28th Nov13 Google has 183 results - but each one of these is just another repeat of TMZ's article!
.
WHY DOESN'T "Kes Weartherm" HAVE ANY SEARCH RESULTS ????
Come on, every teenager has used the internet these days? Why he’s not on Twitter? No Facebook either!
.
Kes Weartherm also does NOT appear in the local White Pages phone listings in Queensland, Australia!

When he visited Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was kicked out of the hotel, went to a restaurant an asked the owner to remove cell phones from the other customers so no one could take a picture, you can guess what the other customer said....no way, this kid has serious issues

anyone who has ever wished for beibs and his crew to get backed down probably just got their wish. You go to a local surfing ground in australia and try and strong arm one of the locals you are looking for a whole lot of trouble. Most surfers dont like tourist who dont know how to surf getting in the way. And most surfers are thug like guarding their turf. They are lucky they didnt get killed. surfers will happily beat some ass. To bad beibs and his crew didnt run into a real nasty bunch. Hope they try this again in Hawaii lol. Surfers arent wimps running around with cameras. These guys are paddling into 20 foot waves they are not afraid of anyone!

You go out in public you don't have the right to tell people what they can and can't photograph, if I had one of those fat pigs approach me I'd call the cops, they wouldn't be touching my camera or me without a fight! Public place my right to photograph anything and anyone! Little punk a** kid can kiss my butt!

Idiots. You fools should beat that bodyguard unconscious. Instead, you just let him get away with being an *******. You're just as bad him.
