Thread: Why Is it???

  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?

    Did you offer to help with some advice?
    Be a leader...

    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

  5. yes of course i always help new guys no matter what. even if i been waiting for a set to come in. ill will most likely give them the wave.. we surfers should always help one another always... wipe outs new guys gear anything brotherhood in general

    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.......

    Cool???? I dont think so....Funny to watch when they choke.........absolutely......But most are eager to get some direction and all should try to help them out. If for no other reason, for the sake of them not being a danger to themselves and others. Everyone has had a kook in the lineup on a good day and if you just bash them it doesnt teach them where they should be and what to do or not to be out there at all with no experience on a big day. Remember...... at one time someone was calling you a kook too. Could be that you still are and just think you are all that.(I dont mean "you" personally but as a reference to anyone) Ofcourse I still choke............I just do it with style now instead of flailing all over the place like a kook.
