i dont even have my friends who surf so i mostly end up going out alone. in the summer however youre bound to be stuck with a bunch of people around here. most of whom you probably dont want out there with you...ive only got a year or two under my belt so i DO feel safer with other people around
i love surfing alone...helps empty out the head and just "live in the moment"...yeh cheesy. not a single one of my friends surf so im always padling out alone...but i say whats up to people here and there in the line up. even though it gets packed when there are waves...i still manage to block everyone out and just enjoy surfing. love the fact that this isnt a team sport...damn i sound anti-social as hell
i voted in this poll when it was first posted & never actually posted a comment, but since it's been revived, i feel now's the time.
as a general rule, surfers suck. i never like sharing the line up w/ other surfers unless i know them. even then, it's only tolerable at best. i'll take an empy line-up any day of the week & actively seek them out as much as possible, happily surfing somewhat inferior waves rather than deal w/ other surfers.
