    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.

    Yeah that's a little much. I said I would give em a little advice but I'm not going to hold their hands.

    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.

    I feel like Andy Rooney started this thread. Oh wait, he's dead.

    My two cents:

    I am a pretty bad surfer, but I enjoy being in the water. They guys I am usually out with are nothing but nice and have and continue to be helpful to me.

    Of course, I took the time to get to know them outside the water, and I am very mindful of my skill level and try my best to stay out of their way in the lineup.

    The friendships I have made are all a part of my surfing experience.
