Weekly Wisdom - Paddle out safely

As we move into summer & crowded lineups here's how to STAY OUT OF THE WAY...


I have seen a lot of poor ettiequte lately and just wanted to start out the summer with a few tips.

If there is a channel (a deeper area where the waves don’t break), paddle out there. Never paddle out through the surf or through the lineup if there is another way. This not only keeps you and others safe, but it also saves energy. If there is no other way out than through the whitewater, it’s your job to stay out of the way of a surfer riding a wave. If someone is riding a wave coming toward you, paddle in the opposite direction of where the surfer is headed. Lastly, always hold on to your board!
