I think y'all take the whole "don't tell the spot" thing a little too seriously. If your going to get waves your going to get waves. Encourage surfing any where, any time. Break down the barriers. Surfing is not a cult, its just regular people. I read so much hostility on the internet about telling spots but I don't know why its a freakin' beach. People don't get mad in public when others have open conversations about breaks. If someone is on the internet seeking out surf information, why not tell them the spot. If you are really afraid that is the reason your not getting waves your doing it wrong. Directed at none of you fine folks just putting some thoughts into writing. Remember we don't hold the answers, you are not the guardian of surfing, it came long before you and will go on long after, you are accomplishing nothing. If people actually talked about specific spots this site would be worthwhile.

I kinda thought the same thing plenty of tude and agros. However, if you look at my post about High Island spots the locals were happy to help. Don't know if it's because there isn't a lot of us in the area or we just have a different mind set. Maybe bigger beaches? Not sure. As long as you don't act like a kook everyone is welcome.

lmao bravo buddy.i agree but im sure a lot of us dont want a 20+ crowd to showup to your break like the lowers raid..which would be pretty cool if u ask me.almost everyone drives to the surf spot.its very rare u get to look out your back window and surf perfect waves like jj florence.here on the eastcoast we travel far,and most of the time u end up surfin a new spot because your spot was flat,and the locals are nice.
