Surfing has an informal compendium of rules and guidelines that one must follow to be accepted, respected, and considered in the line-up. Dropping in on another surfer is a critical violation of the surfer-gentleman’s rule.
The surfer’s code of conduct should be followed whether you’re catching waves at your local surf break, or in a far, distant country.
It’s a universal, unspoken set of principles; a protocol that ensures everyone enjoys their time in the water safely and pleasantly. Believe it or not, a surfboard is a dangerous weapon.
