In general the surfer that is already up and surfing, closest to the peak has the right of way. All other surfers should give that person the respect to enjoy their wave. If your on a long-board and can catch every wave, consider letting others get some action as well. Thank you icon

  • Look, before you go.
  • Do not take-off when someone is already surfing the wave.
  • Do not paddle in an active surfers path if you are paddling out.
  • If a wave is breaking in front of you on your way out, and there is a surfer on the wave, take the path that does not interfere whihc means paddling wide or into the whitewash.
