I grew up in HB and have surfed since 1971. Being a workaholic, I don't surf as much as I used to but I do get out about 2-3 times a year.

I get it.

He was doing it all day to that kid, and no one checked him on it.

The kid cut right, it was his wave. The other guy cut him off. Dropped in on him. Not nice, especially if it is flat or washed out. It prevents the kid from doing as he wishes, all he can do is watch the other guy do his thing.

I was out at Golden West street one day years ago and had a kid about 13 who kept shoulder-hopping me. He did it over and over. This happened until he eventually grabbed the nose of my board and pushed off, pushing me back in the process. Pissed, and ready to drown his skinny ass, I was waiting for him to paddle back out to confront him. When he paddled back out he paddled right up to me and sat within a few feet from me. I asked him if he had a death wish and he told me go home. About that time I saw Rick, a friend of mine from high school. Rick paddled up to the kid and told him if he ever did that again he’d never take him surfing with him again. Turns out it was Rick’s nephew. The kid argued with Rick telling him he was “tired of these inlanders” and that we should “go home”. Rick told him I was a friend of his who had been surfing there since before he was even born. Given that he was Rick’s nephew and only 13 I let him live.

This friend of yours, Rick, that wouldn’t Fig would it? (Rick Fignetti)?
I know he likes hanging around the North side of the pier, but has been known to travel. Last summer they set him up in Costa Rica to call a competition there. he said he has a great time.

I do on occasions. Live in Hollywood so driving to Newport with today’s gas prices requires some discipline on my part. The pic says it all and you dont have to watch Point Break to get it..

Groms, or newbies, usually learn within the first 5 min. The older crew lets them know quickly, so they, nor anyone else runs into someone and gets hurt. The two people in the photo, were not groms or newbies. The older one, just felt like ignoring protocol.

No. Rick has lived on the big island for the past 15 years and we only surfed the pier at night.

So there are no real rules, only protocol, and anybody can ignore that if they so wish.

At the risk of getting their butt kicked.

I don't surf, but spend a LOT of time on the ocean, like nighttime surf fishing. There are many activities that don't have written rules, but protocol that should only be ignored at ones own peril.
