    people try saying Brazilians and aussies are the worst.they are patienant about their sport.brazilians come from beat up favelas built on mountains,they aren't as lucky as u and I to live in a normal house.so when they surf they blow the roof off.i like surfing with groms.they are cool,carefree,and don't get in the way.who I hate are those agro aholes that are in their 30s and try taking every wave and talk smack to anyone who isn't a local.

    lets define what a local is.most of us are not locals.if your fortunate to live near the water,kudos to you.but as I see when I pull up to my break,are 50cars in the parking lot.i don't care where they came from,but your not a local.waves will always come.so don't get all pissy that someone took your wave after you just had a ride.

    what I saw over the past week of the Tahiti swell,fukin bonkers.jetskis everywhere,boats crashing into each other,none of them locals.you think raimana was going to tell everyone to fuk off,no they have no problem sharing their great waves.i see people post pictures with a fence or whatever and everyone flips out,oh u just blew up my spot.even tho the person been there 10years before you,they still complain.im originally a skater who transformed into a surfer over the past 20 years.when I skated,there was no locals only.if the rail u wanted to grind was full of inline skaters,u go find another rail.thats what I do with surfing.if theres more than 5guys at my spot,i go to a different spot.no need for hostility.

    surfings been so commercialized over the past 10 years,i seen plenty of fads.remember clay marzo?then it was doheny,davis,andino..now its albee and matt.now its john john.iv been watchin john john since he was on mtvs cribs.he rips,but no need to parade and jump on the jj bandwagon.i don't surf for flix or videos,with hopes of landing sponsors and big checks.i work a regular 7-330 with overtime.i don't get to surf everyday,but every big swell im out there.

    so point is,dont be an a hole.u give respect to get respect.if you want to parade your local spot is for legends only,no outoftowners,then fuk you!!you will never make it as a pro,because you are too greedy.you wont go on surf trips around the world,u wont surf the north shore every winter because my spot is for locals only.people fail to realize you can find anything online,any spots,any charts,swell maps,etc..nothing is secret anymore.the spots I surf have no surfers around for the next 30 miles.soon while every agro kook is complaining about yuppies surfing their break,the acoe will secretly destroy your break while your home sleeping.instead of fighting the real enemies,you hate on your own kind.i used to look forward to meeting others that share my same interests with surfing,now anytime a buddy tells me oh I just met this surfer,so what.i don't care.probly some degenerate kook with a defense budget for 6/5/4s and al merricks.

    when i go anywhere else i stay out of everyone's way and show total respect in case they are local,because it's not my break,and they don't need my company.either paddle out and surf with me here all fall winter spring every year or stay where you are those 10 months or stay away from me and show some respect.
    what street you surf? Im from jersey to

    the street i'm from is a terrible beachbreak closeout that i surf alone until all of a sudden when it gets warmer invaders start to appear.if you don't know chadwick you're not missing anything,and like i said,i don't need anybody any buddy system.

    The only thing that bothers me is arrogance. The guy who paddles out and gives you a look of contempt and then acts like the whole ocean belongs to only a pro like him. (ya hearing me NJshred/Bustinairs/Watchmyguns?)
    Was lucky enough to be in the water with Kelly Slater a few years back...one of the best surfers on the planet and polite and cool to everyone that was there. No one wanted to get in his way,but he deferred a lot of waves to others.

    I find that it helps to treat other surfers as wildlife

    The worst people are former locals that moved to California for a year or two then came back east and think they are pros, when they still suck as bad as before they moved. They can usually be found bragging out loud in the line up about how sick Mexico is (when they took one trip to Baja), how they scored perfect Blacks (when they probably didn't even get a set wave), and trying to own their old spot by somehow thinking they are a traveled/experienced surfer. Oh yeah, non-stop comments about how the burritos are better too...

    The other thread got me thinking on this one - PR spongers are absolutely terrible to share a line-up with. Impossible to get a wave to yourself.
