RESPECT THE RIDER cause the next one might be you...
with summer comes crowding and a loss of etiquette that should not occur. doods (and'ettes)
THE RIDER HAS THE RIGHT OF WAY. the surfer up and moving down the line has first dibs
on the the available space out there and if you're in their way YOU SHOULD NOT BE. which means
(as a courtesy) you ACTIVELY MOVE TO GET OUT OF THEIR WAY. this action is incumbent on
the pack and YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. how to do so? pick a 90 degree angle with the riders
forward direction your starting point and paddle that way. or just plain move from the hot zone.
this behavior is an intricate part of our sport and should be exhibited cause of the "don't do me
like that" factor. cause you wouldn't want it done to you.
i know i sound pompous but i really do have 50yrs short boarding experience and if this
thread prevents one collision or fistfight then being a fathead was worth it.
