quote="samsam"]surfers rules:
1. Who ever is on the wave has right of way.
2. if two surfers are on the wave the closest surfer to the peak has right of way.
2.5. Have a friendly chat reminding him of one and two, if he does it again...then
3. then you break his head (usually works in California)... Just kidding. Its all about ZEN.

kind of odd behaviour !

with sharing waves with different craft -

if you already had a ride share don't snake..

if someone wastes a wave by kooking it (bailing pulling out/too deep etc..) - they don't get a second chance - usually get shut down - nothing worse than seeing a siiick wave roll down the line with no one on it!

The thing with crowded wave riding amongst wind powered boards is who has right of way if loads of riders are turning around kms out! - been there... i guess just a matter of who lucks up close to the set peaks when they form - but always room to cut in - who knows where limit of cut ins is?!
