A guide to keeping everyone safe and happy in the water. This generally applies to longboarders or stand-up paddlers. Since it’s easier to catch waves on these watercraft, it becomes tempting to catch them all, leaving nothing for shortboarders on the inside, that are the surfers with priority.

May Vary according to surf conditions, localism, experience, and skills of the riders. Remember to say hi when u paddle out to a crowded lineup. Respect locals and more experienced surfers. Beginners: don’t paddle out to the middle of a packed lineup. Surfers always have priority.
