Thread: Crowdss!!!

  1. #1

    Crowdss!!!

    Would you rather surf a foot smaller of a wave with only a few guys out, or surf a wave that is a little bigger but is 3 times as crowded

    Hopefully i'm not the only person that would rather have the first option.

    Depends on my mood. I've been in a "I'll run your ass over" mood lately, so I'll take the crowded larger surf.

    Can't wait to see if Friday or Saturday get decent... UNCW is on summer break, so there's going to be plenty of speed bumps out there littering the impact zone. KOOK CONFETTI TIME!

    Hey, at least it is surf related and not some more conspiracy crap. But yeah, kinda worn out topic.

    Myself, I already surf waves anywhere from 1 to 23 feet smaller than everybody else in way south Florida and crowds are the least of my worries.

    Seems like I'm not the surfer most claim to be here on this forum , so with that being said and knowing I prefer less crowded breaks I choose smaller less crowded. For the 100,000 time

    No worries, it's just a topic that comes up on here quite often! How about a medium wave mildy crowded with everyone taking turns?

    Around here, "a foot smaller" for the next three months means knee high slop, as opposed to waist high and ok. I usually pick the waist high waves and just deal with the fact that crowds happen, and just try to get in the water early and avoid peak times.

    The other thing is....more times than not i have found that with a little bit of effort its possible to find relatively uncrowded waves without sacrificing the size and quality. People tend to flock to the known spots, cameras, and easily checked spots. That fact can be used to your advantage. Even in the crowded season.
