    Throw a few cigarette butts into the sordid swill, and it happened to me many years ago with the same results.

    WARNING:
    It's a really nasty habit guys. I picked it up when I briefly attended Texas A&M. Over 20-plus years later, I had a hell of a time quitting. Had to use Nicorette, got hooked on that, and it took me several more years to kick nicotine altogether. I'm so glad I'm free of that stuff.
    Dipping is worse than cigarettes in the amount of nicotine that floods your system. A nasty habit and an even nastier cancer to get on your lips, gums tongue, into the jaw bone, and spreading throughout the rest of your face. Really scary, gruesome surgeries. I won't post examples here, but with such a face, you'll certainly have the beach to yourself.
    Fortunately I finally quit before any of that happened to me.

    Sorry for the somewhat off-topic public service announcement, but I would hate to see any of that happen to anyone.

    I go Grizzly Wintergreen in the water. My friends don't get it either. Sometimes, neither do I. But its easier than smoking a butt out there. Plus I quit the cancer sticks. The lady hates it.
    In the Water is one of my favorite places to have a chew. Plus it makes it easier to keep the salt water out of my mouth for whatever reason.

    Awesome! I'll definitely add this in my this to the bag of tricks. Even a good verbal thrashing would probably get the point across to all but the most dense tools in the lineup

    it definitely works and the looks on the surf beach guards faces was priceless.

    1. Look at the guy who is on the peak, just before the wave gets ready to peak ( assuming you are the next one closest to the peak) and with big wide eyes, stare right behind him and say real loud: "Holy sh*t! Did you see that shark?!?" As he instinctively turns to see what he thinks is Jaws coming at him, snake the peak. If he gives you a hard time about not seeing anything after you paddle back out, swear to God that you just saw a 10 foot bull shark. Prove other wise! Word of caution: It only works if you don't use it too often, and never at the same spot on the same day.

    2. That is all I am giving away. Does anyone else have any crowd control tactics they would like to share?
    That may work where you're at but here in NSB for someone to see a shark is more common then girls on the beach in bikini's!

    If you said "Hey man, look out a shark!" You would get looked at as if you were a tourist!

    Wanna clear the line-up? Get off your board and let everyone know how much your stomach hurts. Then pull off your board shorts and place them on your board while floating around making funny faces. Start in small circles and gradually swim round and round making them think there's no chance of avoiding last nights chili!

    Course the wet suit trick works however its harder to avoid mud then logs!

    This is classic stuff bro! Can't wait to go full MMA with a buddy on the beach to school the non locals and the groms on proper etiquette. My luck I'll get arrested by the PO PO and dragged to jail in a pair of shorts (happened once for walking down the street near the jetty with a pole spear / the outstanding warrant did not help - but that is another post for another thread).

    My favorite tactic is to talk really loud about people with whomever I am surfing with. "That a$$hole over there..."

    Paddle boarders = no respect. I don't even aknowledge them.

    Young groms I am cool with, but boy band looking groms 15-21 get minimal respect. Ill just paddle for the same wave and call it out "mine". If that doesn't work Ill just pretend they are not on the wave.

    I don't always rent a boat & then ride back to chum the crowded surf break, but when I do the results are spectacular.

    I commend you for kicking the habit, I've tried several times over the years to kick it, but I am so addicted to nicotine...I've seen the pictures, I googled them to try to help me quit, but it just doesn't work. Like you said, when I have half a face, I'll be able to paddle out at Pipeline and have it all to myself...so that may make it all worth it...lol

    Don't give up, KB. Get free of that stuff - especially if you're married and have kids. I don't know how often you dip, but try cutting back a little at a time. It's a very tough habit to quit - perhaps more so than cigarettes since higher nicotine levels are involved. Cope seemed to be the strongest back when I was dipping. I used 4 mg Nicorette gum as a substitute. It's addicting and not that good for you either, but it's better than snuff and easier to quit when the time comes. I just got tired and fed up of spending the money and running to the store late at night when I had run out. I've seen commercials on TV for a prescription drug one can take while quitting smoking/nicotine products but forgot what it's called. You can also look at it from a monetary standpoint. You could probably buy yourself a very nice new board for what you spend on dip over the course of a year.
