And the lifeguard came and talked to me about it after it happened cause he saw it and i went and apologized to the kid but the dad was a real a hole for pushing the kid on a boogie board on my wave. and i just think that it trully wasnt my fault since i did yell the direction i was goping and the dad didnt hear me. Finally when i go surfing most of the people swimming in the surf zones duck under the water or get out of your way if they see you coming.
    Just a side note is that most people that don't surf don't understand wave ettiquette,

    And msurfgo really hit the nail on the head, all good points.

    i know that people that dont surf dont know wave etiquett. but this is coming from my standards that if i caught the wave some tourist thats going to push they're kid on a boogie board in the surf zone should be aware of surfers surfing around and that they should make sure before pushing they're kid on a wave to just glimpse and make sure that surfers arent cathing that wave. also i did apologize to the parents later in the afternoon when i saw them out. and i was pissed that the dad gave me some bs when he didnt know what he was talking about. but as i've said that i know tourists dont know wave etiquett but they should just look around them when boogie boarding just for they're own safety and even the surfers safety. and i know this due to when my cousins come down i tell them when they boogie board in the surf zones just to check to make sure no surfers are on that wave that they're going to catch.

    yeah you would think that thr tourists would be smart enough to keep an eye out, but most of these people dont live near the ocean and thus wouldnt know how to react to a surfer coming at them. just like how they freak out at cabbage heads, who most us know are harmless. so just make sure you look down the line for anyone in the way and if someone is, kick out and tell them that they should move because people are surfing where they are swimming
    dont be a **** and try to blame a collison on them. theyre too dumb to know any better
