    I am pretty sure if you read my post you'll see that I didn't reserve the labels dipsh*t and ignorant for just surfers. There are a lot of people that fit that criteria that will never set foot in the water. These are the same people that make right turns without looking for pedestrians to the right. These are the same people that walk right in front of you at the grocery store without looking. These are the same people that take the last 7 riblets at the buffet because, you know, they never refill that stuff.

    I'd also like to point out that calling someone "ignorant" is not necessarily a disparaging remark.

    "Ignorant: lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated."

    Meaning that they have not been taught, which is what I was advocating for above. Teaching.

    So, don't get your panties in a wad. I'm not saying that we should break the fins off their Costco boards, rip off their leashes and push their boards into the rocks. Educate them so they can get the same joy from it that we do.

    And I've been surfing for over 30 years, Captain Math. I just didn't stand up until recently. Go ahead, tell me that I'm a dick dragging kook. I can take it.

    Thanks Dave. I actually am a really laid back guy. I check this forum once or twice a month usually to offer advice to beginners on gear, travel, etc. I read this thread because I like hearing about people's surf stories.

    Sometimes I find someone that is, like Carson said, ignorant. If you want to come to where I live and "block for beginners just to fuck with people like me" just send me a message. When we paddle out together I will likely just drown you. It would probably be safer than having beginners ditching longboards over the lip as they decide at the last second not to drop in on someone else. Have you ever been hit in the face with a longboard while you are running down the line? We could probably set that up on your visit as well if not.

    Etiquette exists for a reason. It isn't some word that we just made up. Respect gets respect. If you "get it" I will be the nicest guy you have ever met in a lineup and I will cheer you into waves that I could have paddled for. But, if you act like common decency is too "big" of a concept for you to grasp you should never surf a new wave again.

    Just to the group- I am sorry to drag this thread down into the negative feelings. Just been crowded a lot at the local and I am obviously frustrated. There is a time and place for everyone. I was once a beginner and I am far from a great surfer. I just know that I was taught to be respectful and aware of my surroundings. I would never have surfed a focal point type wave like this when I was learning, especially if it was flanked by miles of sand-bottomed beach break. I hope everyone is staying sane...

    No worries. No negative feelings here.

    I have a spare room and some really cool beginner boards and I surfed my favorite spot with 4 other people this morning. Jump in your kookmobile and drive on out. :)

    Hey what's up everyone? I'm on my way to try to go find a wave down here in Central Florida. We have a small swell in the water and offshore Breeze so I think what I've decided is if I look far enough and long enough I find something that will work for the day. It may not be exactly what I'm looking for or hope for but at least it's something. Sunday was a great day chest head high somewhere in that range super clean all day the swell push through on all tides. I think everybody that owned a surfboard without practicing for Memorial Day which I know we all look forward to! Anyway check back in with a surf report hopefully that will turn into a ride report. Glad to see you guys up north are getting some

    Carson. I have a friend or two that lives out your way and they're reporting the same thing. Glad to hear you're getting some surf! Got some short pound Nehi waves yesterday but because of the closeout that chose to bring my soft top in a sad attempt to catch any part of a barrel.. even though I was unsuccessful I had a good time doing it
