I dont really like using that word unless I absolutly have too. It kinda pushed people away from surfing I have seen and gives a bad vibe out in the water. We have been all called it at one point but it doesnt mean we need to spread it some more

Yeah I think it is unless its a person who wont listen to etiquette advise and is a becoming a danger to the people around him . But if a person wants to surf and aprechiate and respect the ocean and the people around them in it then I am cool with a few more people in the line up

i agree that anyone should be able to go out during knee high and smaller but when it gets any bigger kooks need to be on the sand. And im not saying that a kook is anyone who is not a local, i think that a kook is someone that thinks they are better than the rest of the lineup

Yeah anyone who poses a danger to people around them should definatly sit it out when it big cause nothing good can come of it . I agree but you pay your dues some how . If the have common sense they would respect the more experienced surfer and sit off the side or go down the beach where it is less crowded.
I stress that alot to people when the first start out "Know your limits" if you feel unsure about paddling out into big surf then go with you gut and sit it out.

its amazing...when hurricane Bill had reared its wonderful face I was on the shoreline waiting it to clean up, and a bit anxious and scared over the paddle out, but here comes the dudes from Conshahoken, PA or wherever the f---, and thier paddling like mad and getting tossed into the pier and breaking their boards. Balls or ****heads? I don't know, but know your limits and don't kill yourself. Well, I could give a ****, just don't mess my ride up. I can't slalom on a surfboard too well so stay out of the inside pissing in the water...

Thats where most accidents happen is when your on a wave and someone is paddling back out and they see you coming towards them down the line and they just freeze like a deer in a headlight. Or they dont know set timing and try to paddle out when the set waves are coming in and they ditch there board and it becomes a projetile.
You can tell if a surfer is a newb or a experience surfer if they watch the water for a bit before they paddle out and where they paddle out.
New Years Day swell I was out and this fella came out to Oc with his brand new winter rubber and Ron Jon longboard. He did some quick streching and began his paddle out in the middle of the beach. Needless to say he got caught in a set of waves all over head . The poor bastard got worked for a good 15 minutes and by the time he got out in the line up he caught one wave and got worked on the take off and went in . He took it for granted . Most people think its easy cause they see a 13 year old kid out there ripping and figure if a kid can do it so can I . That the wrong thing to think surfing in the winter is a demanding on the body and the mind as well
