Is there any good way to communicate to the twin-tip mafia that now hang out at Scarborough/Trigg, the 'right-of-way' rules associated with wave riding?








Literally looks like every one of those TT riders down at Brighton, just add a wetsuit plus boardies!

And don't even get me started on the tools that don't even look before launching off the beach when I'm riding my twin tip in a wave as they step on their board and take off from the shore directly in my line



I like that you correctly described it as 'riding my twin tip in a wave' rather than 'surfing'



Ha ha dream on buddy.
I bet I smack more waves than most of the onshore slop lawn mowing SB riders who are living the dream and thinking they are charging Pipeline.

As for congestion in the sets I think you'll find plenty of dudes who think they can ride strapless (but can't) clogging things up a tad.

IMHO regardless of craft you choose to ride, if you are committed to a wave (and it is actually a wave) the others should be aware of your trajectory and feck off from the course of usually obvious line.

Unless you're on a TT because you're not riding the wave...

I'm totally cool with a TT picking up a wave out the back, and riding that wave, as long as they picked it up offshore. It's the TTs who just come straight off the beach to launch off a wave which I've picked up out the back that I get pissed at.
And don't worry, the guys on surfboards going straight downwind in the white-water zone (refer previous posts regrading wave riding etiquette), not giving way are just as much of a piss-off as TTs not giving way in the white-water zone to someone who's legitimately riding a wave from out the back.
