So, a lot of surf of late, and with it crowded line-ups. Seeking opinions on the standard of etiquette in the following scenario... A 3-wave set comes and the guy in position paddles for the 1st 2 waves, but doesn't catch either. The guy next to him could have caught either, but yielded to the guy in position. The 3rd wave comes and both paddle for and catch the wave. Did the guy next to the guy in position burn him, or did the guy forfeit his "priority" position by paddling for, but not catching the 1st 2 waves of the set? A slight caveat...does it change if the 2 are friends?Asking for a friend as there was a little hard feelings involved, LOL

Take a number. Miss your turn? Back of the line.

You should actually burn him once just to give him shit since he got bent out of shape.

This isn't Tee-ball.
If the first guy isn't getting into the waves and the second guy could after giving the first guy a few chances, I say go for it. The first guy should realize he is blowing waves for others and be understanding.

Having said that when surfing with friends usually sharing waves is fine, as is hassling each other for being corks or wave hogs.

I am with long beard on this one.
Usually when one paddles for a wave he is now a few paddles and seconds out of position if he misses the wave and now that position gets assumed by the next person.

Caveat for beginners or he who hesitates to send it: You miss a wave too many times you will get marked and people will start to burn you assuming that you're going to miss another good wave.

If they are true surfer they will understand that no one in the lineup wants to see a good wave go unridden. Lol

If you blow 2 in a row, you can't get bent when anybody else paddles for the 3rd ..... friends or not.

If the guy in position paddles for and misses the first wave, he is out of position for the second one. Second guy assumes position and goes on the second wave. Now the third guy may have a problem because the guy that missed the first wave will of had time to get back in position for the third wave. In that scenario resort to pecking order. Out of towners don't get second chances.

Surf etiquette expired the day Cook "discovered" the "Sandwich Islands". Any wonder that Cook and kuk sound similar...

Dude misses 2 in a row... he better be wearing asbestos trunks, because he's getting torched on #3..... FLAME ON! *and to be fair, if this is accepted and not even questioned in my circle of friends

How many good rides did we all miss from the guy/girl too deep that had no chance at making it, but we were too nice to go in front of him?

Surfing 101 - you paddle and miss you are back of the line.

definitely more than once I give everyone the benefit of the doubt.... but after a few "straight-off Adolfs" those benefits gradually subside..... or I just make sure I'm deeper than that person

Sometimes it helps to look them in the eye and ask firmly, YOU GOT IT?? If they say yes and miss it, they can no longer be trusted LOL

My practice, too. Be paddling and asking if they have it. Any hesitation in their answer, be ready to GO.
