Kook Patrol


NW WIND 10 TO 20 KT. WIND WAVES 3 FT. W SWELL 5 FT AT 10 SECONDS...BUILDING TO 7 FT AT 10 SECONDS.

In the past week I have seen alot of this behavior by paddlers...
The waves were half the size of the one in the pic...
Yet, people were bailing their boards (without looking)...
Turning turtle for a 2 foot foam ball (and letting go)...
Paddling frantically for the shoulder (and not making it)...
Struggling to catch waves (with their board nose a foot out)...
Sitting on their boards backwards (and falling over)...
Jockeying for position (but unable to stand on their boards)...
Standing up before they get the wave (and cursing the wave)...
Going left into a closeout (the shoulder was on the right)...
Hooting at every ride their friend gets (less is more)...

if you don't surf, don't start. Kooks need to be yelled at, razzed and stink eyed...No sympathy here.
