Surfing while on vacation is pretty much guaranteed to be load a lot of fun. But don’t let fun get in the way of remembering where you are. When you are hitting the waves in a new spot, remember you are “ Surfing some one’s local spot”. You are a guest. These is some tips to keep in mind when you are surfing a non-local spot.
Say helo with your eyes and face : try to great the local, individually. Look straight into their eyes and be gentle without being too subservient.
Put on the wetsuit near the locals; if there is a parking lot where everybody gears up, join them slowly. do not show fear and do not show ultra respect. Stay cool and do your things calmly.
Head to shore and warm-up by the water: Locals will have the chance to look at you and lower their temper. Do your physical exercise slowly and without aggressive movements.
paddle out slowly: you want to show everybody that you are not crazy for waves and that you are enjoying the atmosphere.
Ask where the best place to take off is to enjoy the wave: the question is so obvious and human nature tends to be so generous that they will get along and will be willing to help you, even that you are already know the answer.
Do not drop in: give a chance to every body to enjoy the waves.
