Thread: Why Is it???

Hybrid View

  1. Thumbs down Why Is it???

    Why is it that when there is a new guy learning no one in the line up saids anything to help them learn? Ive notice this all around the east coast obx south nc all over in nj. Its like everybody is to cocky to help isnt surfing peaceful and relaxing and brotherhood. Why does this happen?

    Give me a break, nothing more annoying than a group of christian surfers...let us be for gods sake!

    I think the mentality is that waves are a limited resource- if you don't help the weak many of them will quit and that equals more waves. Of course there's also the old "nobody helped me & I gained an ovewhelming sense of satisfaction by sticking to it" logic. It's a dog eat dog & very cliquey activity.

    Everyone these days is a "local or a pro". go out be respectful. stick to it. and if someone says something tell em to fu** off. kind of sick of the people in the water these days

    Because surfing is an extremely selfish sport. Period.

    Negative! Beginners create the problem (being in the way, dropping in, etc), Agro's escalate the problems because they are "pro's". Surfing is not cool, people need to stop thinking its so cool. Take up badmitten or something.......
