Yesterday there were a lot of surfers and the surf spots were crowded. When I took off, there were a local surfer in the direction of travel. I was about to hit a local surfer.

No.
That’s bad for you.

But it was so crowded that I was finally able to take off.
Is it a little dangerous? I thought.
But I was riding the waves, so I thought I was the priority. Should the local surfer have avoided it?

You are misunderstanding. You are a beginner You’re not good at surfing and you can’t control your surfboard. You can’t avoid inside surfers. Don’t claim priority.

Yeah? I’m not bad, right?

No, you are bad. The most dangerous of the crowded surfing spots are beginner surfers like Oliver. This time, I’ll talk about ways to help beginners avoid accidents.

… Is the other surfer injured?

That’s right. If the nose or fins on the surfboard hit the opponent’s surfer, the opponent will be injured. Fins are especially dangerous. The fins are stiff and sharp. There is a risk of serious injury to the other surfer.

I was so absorbed in surfing that I didn’t take it seriously.

Surfing is very dangerous. What you lack is consideration for the surfers around you. Please be careful not to hurt other surfers and to enjoy surfing together.

The accident I witnessed

I witnessed an accident about 10 years ago. A novice surfer has failed to take off. The surfboard hit the short border inside. The fins seemed to hit, and the short border face was bloody. The short border got 5 stitches. It was a very scary accident.

Beginners should avoid crowded areas.

Check the congestion of the surf spots before entering the sea.
What do you think by comparing areas A and B?

Area B is more attractive with more waves. But it’s crowded.

Area B has good wave conditions. Therefore, it is crowded. Beginner surfers should not surf in crowded areas as they have no control over their surfboards.

So should I choose in area A?

I recommend Area A for Oliver. Area A is not crowded. Oliver is unlikely to collide with other surfers. In addition, there are many good surfers in Area B. So beginners can’t get the waves. It is important for beginners to ride a lot of waves. For that reason, Area B is suitable for Oliver

Unbelievable. Why did you try to get this wave?

It was so crowded that I could hardly catch the waves. Finally, the waves that I could take off came and I was absorbed in taking off.

Novice surfers should never take off when there are surfers inside. Please check the inside carefully before taking off.

How to avoid inside surfers

Oliver
Oliver

There are surfers in the direction of travel. It is inevitable with my technique.

The pullout is the correct answer. But can you pull out?

I can’t pull out.

Beginner surfers often cannot pull out. Also, depending on the wave break, no one may be able to pull out. If you can’t pull out, go down to the bottom.

Yeah? This will end the riding.

That’s right. Please finish the riding. This is the easiest way to avoid other surfers. 
It’s better than colliding with other surfers.

I’m glad you understand. Even if this riding is over, you can aim for the next wave again.
