It is essential to follow proper surfing etiquette in order to avoid injury. The majority of the dos and don’ts listed here are pieces of advise that may be used in a variety of situations. Please attempt to follow these unwritten rules, stay out of trouble, and have a good time while surfing.




Keep in mind the right of way.

Learn who has the right of way on the wave by looking at the following:

The surfer who is the farthest out or who has been waiting the longest is known as the furthest out surfer.




The surfer who is the farthest inside is the one who is closest to the breaking wave’s crest.


First to feet or first onto the wave: the person who is the first to their feet or first onto the wave.
If the wave has two peaks, the cry of “Left!” or “Right!” is used to communicate.



Don’t just walk in.

Cutting in front of other surfers who are already up and riding is a certain way to get yourself into problems or get hurt with other surfers, and it is not advised. Keep an eye out for the right of way.




Don’t be snake

Paddling around someone repeatedly in order to get onto the inner position on a wave is not permitted.

Don’t make a mess of the waves.

Distribute these to your friends and family. It’s not a good idea to paddle the farthest outside and catch the waves first every time you get to the lineup.




Please Accept Our Apologies

If you accidentally bump into someone, run over someone, or otherwise violate social etiquette and standards, just apologize. It’s merely good etiquette to do so. When we’re out surfing, we’ve all done things we shouldn’t have done, and expressing sorry may go a long way toward making things better.




Observe and respect the locals.

Keep in mind that the site is frequented by locals who surf it on a daily basis. While visiting a location, show respect, keep things nice, and gain some respect for yourself. Don’t congregate in huge numbers at surf locations. Take your time and don’t hurry out the door.




Learn the Proper Technique for Paddling Out.

This includes not abandoning your board or paddling directly into the path of other surfers while on the water. Keep an eye on the waves and time your paddle out to coincide with the timing of sets. Use your best judgment to avoid colliding with other surfers. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to approach a lifeguard.





Surfing Spots that are suited to your abilities

Try not to choose a location that is beyond your skill level. You’ll simply wind up annoying the other surfers by getting in their way or becoming a possible danger for everyone. If you are confused about where to surf, always consult with lifeguards.




Helping other surfers is always appreciated.

Always provide a hand to a fellow surfer who is in need. Surfing may be risky, and it can even be deadly, therefore everyone should take care of one another.





Beaches must be respected.

Only footsteps will be left behind. Don’t trash, spray graffiti, vandalize, or do any other damage to the beach or its environs.

Inspect your equipment to ensure that it is appropriate and practical, such as a leash, sunscreen, and a wetsuit for cold or warm circumstances.

Do not hesitate to ask for specific information on safety, regulations, and conditions from the local lifeguards. Take pleasure in the waves!
