a few swells back like 3 guys kept sitting right where i was or right where id go on take off...so im either yelling "yo" since i would be deeper and up sooner...or i would let the wave go without me when they were sitting behind. yelling yo resulted in one of them telling me not to be so agro...i told him im as mellow as it gets and just look if someones already up before you go...he ended up moving somewhere else. after letting a few waves go and these clowns not responding to me def looking pissed i stopped letting waves go... i paddled for the waves that were coming and would just stare them down...they got my point and all moved. another day i was paddling back out after a ride and a longboarder who was paddling by bails off his log as a wave comes...i duckdive and his board missed me...as soon as i saw him i told him as nicely as i could that if he ever bailed like that again around me the conversation wouldn't be so polite...he was shocked. my point is people don't know and if they do they def don't give a **** about common sense in the water.
