    Worst Locals

    Seeing the thread about the worst wipeouts got me curious about another part of the surfing world. What's your worst experience with locals, or which location has nasty people.

    I've always had good experiences personally, except this one time but it wasn't bad. One guy at Ocean City, NJ decided to follow me all around the lineup. Everywhere I went, he followed always 5 feet away and tried to take every wave but failed every time. So I was tired of this guy and started to not care when he started paddling, and eventually he started screaming at me. We got into a huge argument and he dropped the "I live here" line. I just laughed and told him to stop raping my space. Then he left. Like I said not bad.

    The worst locals

    . . . are PA drivers, no question about it.

    In Hawaii at Makaha.... I think that my buddy and I were the only white people and we were getting cussed out by every 11 year old in the water. A kid that I later found out was eight called me an "Albino *****". I'm pretty sure that I got dropped in on on every wave at some point or another.

    My bro was killin' it at Maria's and taking all the waves which pissed the locals off. Finally the big guy on the big board on the outside said "If you catch another wave I will break you in half gringo." The other Puerto Ricans laughed..... so he paddled in. Don't blame him since he was only 18, half their size, and out of his league on this one.

    locals

    i hate the word "local." i go surf where ever I want, and I never have problems. more or less thats the case for anyone. the only people i ever see giving so much attention to out of towners are the "locals" who never left the damn state that they are in. the best surfers i know get every wave they want because they earned the best waves. "a local" who demands every 2' wave at north side gets what they deserve...non sense!

    When I was in Puerto Rico, I had someone come up to me and ask me if I had a ticket to surf there... Fairly humurous.

    Had local guy in the USVI talk to me like he was my buddy then I caught him casing my campsite . I sat at the picnic table and was looking out the side of my eyes through the trees and I could see him leaning around the bathhouse to see if I was still there. I found a ranger and turned him onto the guy. Turned out he had this kid with dreds that was his lookout, crazy stuff .

    Penultimate Localism

    The attendant at the Inlet parking lot wanted me to pay $2.50 for the one hour that I had parked there. Imagine that? Talk about localism. I mean, did he think I was a tourista from Philly or something?
