It wasn't ridable or breaking further down beach that day, so there were no other options at IR that day (does it even break there at all anymore?). 3 people is not a crowd, it really was the difference between the advanced rude/selfish guy catching waves every 5 minutes if he were nice and patient with myself and this other guys vs. sitting to our right (looking to beack) 10 ft, then seeing a wave coming earlier than we did, paddling around us to take nearly every wave every 2 minutes and snaking us out. If he surfs everyday he's already lucky and blessed with lots of wave riding enjoyment, and someone like me who live 200 miles inland and can only get the enjoyment to surf a few times a year to be blocked out all together. I always respect and cater to the better surfer but there has to be some give and take so everyone can enjoy.

    I used to play indoor volleyball for a decade or so. I played at an intermediate/advanced level. We'd have open nights, and when newbies showed up, we'd kindly let them fill into the teams for a few games. Sure it brought down the enjoyment level some for the more experienced guys, but we didn't tell them to get lost or refused to let them play because their skills sucked. After a few games, we kindly asked them if they minded sitting out for a couple games just so the more advanced guys could play a higher level game or 2. We'd even help coach them less experienced ones so their learning curve improved and made it less stressful for them. I don't know why that same civil philosophy can't work for surfing.
    sure, surfing is just like indoor volleyball. lol. do you work? i'll assume you do. how do people usually react when somebody with limited interest/experience walks through the door and gets, and or expects, the same pay/benifits as those who have been around a while and paid their dues?

    The volleyball drop-in night, was just what I thought was a similar comparison. Laugh at it if you wish. One court (instead of 1 surf break) mixed skill level participation, and an tight inside clique of advanced players sharing 1-2 hrs. of gametime with some newcomers/outsiders. Pretty close cooreleation it seems to me.

    I really don't get the work place/pay scale cooreleation at all though, sorry. Experienced surfers shares break with inexperienced surfer. Instead of snaking all waves and and catching 20 waves an hour to inexperience zero (because all waves were snaked), Experienced surfer is courteous and he instead catches 10 waves and hour and the inexperienced might be lucky to catch 1 or 2 tops if actually allowed to enter lineup? So its either $200K to zero pay or $100K per year to $10K per year salary. There's your payscale coorelation I guess. I'm just talking about human decency and common courtesy both ways in the give respect/get respect quote.

    It's this kumbaya communist attitude that is causing the moral and social decay of society as we know it. Every one gets a prize, everyone takes a turn on the peak, how about every wave is a party wave. Next thing you know we'll have dogs and cats sleeping together. I'm just sayin".

    it was a bit of a stretch. but waves are a limited resource. good surfers always burn inland beginners. beginner/inlander couldn't go down the beach?

    i remember last winter surfing a peak down the beach, had been waiting awhile for a wave, and 3 kooks for whatever reason decide to paddle out right on me. why? to be honest, i wasn't caring to much until they instantly started thinking they're up without waiting their turn. so i just burned the sh!t out of them over and over. they had not the slightest inclination they created that situation. why do people feel so entitled to instant gratification? just wait your turn, or go surf down the beach if you can't do that. everybody happy

    Yeah, as Antatico stated the realy enemy of course is just limited resources and too many people and not enough space or infrequent quality waves.

    I just think less experienced should be educated civilily by the more experienced...not "teach them a lesson" in an aggro way as 1st means. Misbehaving or disrespectful people...sure teach 'em a lesson. There's a difference.

    I still think a majority of all the kooks, SUPs, fisherman, tourists, etc. that make most surfers angry can have their problems resolved peacefully with more communication and education of the clueless. Sure there are some arrogant fools that deserve a hollering or even a beatdown, but I'd bet they are really a very small minority. Cordial education and advice first, then feel free to go aggro as the next step if they don't listen.

    try giving kooks a 'civil lesson'. never works. people who don't know the rules always assume it has something to do with 'localism' no matter how polite you are. just doesn't work like that in the real world. people are generally too selfish to consider their actions. most of the crybabies just started surfing anyhow. but, by no means should anyone get violent over things though. waves aren't worth hurting people over and it never ends well for anyone.

    i agree sisdurfdogg, to many fruity goons expecting instant gratifcation and equal share with little or no effort. i know every generation has said it, but d*nm kids (and many adults) have become tender little p*ssies.
