However, contrary to what I just said, I'm always nice to anybody I encounter. I usually say a hello. And I just love people who mumble something back or don't say anything......and that only happens in July......which is humorous.
---I greet people as well and get the same grunt back, hilarious! Its OK to say "hey" back people.
I'm on board with Brazilians and will add chicks who paddle out with their boyfriends just to do something "together"---they cant surf and take up space in the lineup..
People from Montauk who show up on a boat. Dudes, I know your break just got inundated with NYC yuppies but that doesnt mean you have to take it out on us.
Talkers. I dont mind a little chatter here and there, but I dont want to talk about your new kitchen floor.
Tourists who sit inside to grab the small waves / leftovers. I see you looking at me. I'm not falling, so dont even get into position for the late take off / sloppy seconds drop in. If I have to whistle coming down the line more than once, we need to have a little chat.
- People who are too chatty
- Anyone with a bad attitude
- Inexperienced surfers
- Inflated egos
- Skimboarders at the Naval Jetty
New ones come to mind every day in the height of tourist season. But honestly, I'm not a d*** at all and never really tell anybody off. I just paddle away and dream about winter and spring on a less crowded peak. I like to exchange greetings, small talk is OK, but mostly I just want to have some peace and quiet when I'm surfing.
