Alone Alone is kinda rare depending.... in jerz I had some of my best session at IBSP solo, that place can be hollow
in OC, no matter how early I woke up and paddled out (dark even), someone was there within 15 min, but thats still a few sets waves all for my greedy ass, totally worth it
In HI I surfed a north shore break alone once, but the next peak down had a few people, so it wasn't fully alone, but no one was looking for the same set waves I was, so it was like I was alone. a perfect set up
Aint that the truth. When I was younger I used to love the competition and surf with others, my surfing was better because of it. Now a days I dont care for competing and I now surf soooo much better when im at it alone....less thinking gets in the way.
Alone or with a few friends. Screw a crowded peak. Always at least one (usually more) a-hole and I don't mix well with those people. And I'm the calm, patient one in my crew. If we all paddled out to a crowded peak I can almost guarantee you there will be a confrontation. One guy is laid back but once he gets riled he's like a raging bull. The other is much more confrontational. He's a good surfer and obeys the rules but drop in on him and he will run you over, punch you on the way down, and follow you all the way to the parking lot.
I go to chill and have fun, not deal with that crap, so not even gonna go there.
^^^^I like that quote...sums up the feeling I get when you are out with a couple buddies, a clean up set comes, and as you're scratching for the horizon you have that realization that ultimately, you really are alone out there.
