    Granted, I don't know anything about this spot but...I just paddle for it. If the guy makes it, don't take off. If he doesn't make it, keep paddling and grab it. It's not dropping in unless you actually go. Also, if the guy has no chance in hell at making the section, I'll go then as well. If someone gets pissed at you for doing that....well, they're just a kook and need to clean the sand out from the cooter and stop whining.

    this is a good method if its really crowded, but i've seen mistakes where the guy gets covered in whitewater and everyone thinks hes gone so they go, but he ends up staying on

    yea, true dat happens...i'm super careful, but i've done it before....but it's been done to me FAR more times, so I don't lose any sleep about it. i guess my main point is that if people cannot tolerate honest mistakes, they should go play golf and leave surfing to those with a sense of humor (like gruvi! haha, sorry couldn't resist )
