Uh, I'm not cocky and I don't help anyone (unless they're drowning or something).
Why is it that some people always feel the need to intervene in other peoples' lives, for better or worse??
Although I see your point, I don't really think that applies to helping a beginner surfer with much significance. It's not like I'm trying to change their mindset about a relationship they're in or persuade them to switch political parties. It's just a little constructive criticism. I always try to help at least a little. We all started somewhere right? And perhaps for some of you, myself included, if it weren't for that one person who helped you out or gave you some encouragement, then you wouldn't be where you are today.
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
Give me a break, nothing more annoying than a group of christian surfers...let us be for gods sake!
in my 25 years of surfing, I've had waay more problems, mostly being dropped in on, but overly aggro exerienced surfers than beginners. I can't remember the last time a beginner got in my way. I've been dropped in on twice in the past week by guys who either weren't looking or didn't care.
Totally agree.If you can surf 9 out of 10 times you can surf around them.Most of the time if your out there with a newbie your going to get most of the waves.Id rather be out there with a newb then someone thats aggro.Im not crazy about alot of paddleboarders thou.
