This is true whether you are a CEO of a major corporation, a pizza delivery driver, or yes even a surfer. Fortunately, for surfers their rules are common sense lessons on surfing etiquette that have been handed down on every beach from one generation to the next. The most important rule of surf etiquette and one that you should learn and practice real quick is have respect. Have respect for the ocean and the waves, because they are home to many different species of aquatic life. Also the water is most certainly not a humans natural habitat even if you are in the water from sun up to sun down, if you are not careful you can not only get hurt, but you could be killed. You should also respect the surfers around you no matter what. Just because they may be old timers, newbie’s, or not of the local set does not mean you can disrespect them that will get you some...
