This is a pretty dumb thread
just find the spot with all the shortboarders... bring out a long board and sit waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay outside.
Yes, spitting is bad but it was necessary back in the days of old. Now it's a habit. But I usually space myself from other humans in the water so, it's all good. Oh man, one time five years ago, I was all dope sick and paddled out anyway......you don't want to know what went on that day.........Just ghastly.
The Lowers raid video is a classic! Been wanting to try that out at the Juno Pier for awhile, but organizing surfers is like herding cats. Another one I like to do when there is a bunch of newbies and longboarders out and there are long lulls, is when the first wave comes I go "PARTY WAVE! Everybody GO!" At least half to three quarters of the lineup take off on the first set wave, and the rest of the set is left to sort out amongst 3 or 4 of us as laughter erupts.
Just drop in. It works for Chris Ward (minus Hawaii trips)
That's basically what first street looks like in the summer, sans the good waves.
I chew tobacki every time I paddle out, somewhat of a ritual, Copenhagen Long Cut if you want to get technical about it...so I'm constantly spitting...this technique has never cleared any peaks to my knowledge. Just sayin', this mofo be sprayin'.
