Surf Etiquette and Tips

Once you’re in the water, follow these surf etiquette and safety tips, and you are sure to have a great time.

Pace your time in the water

Sit on the board while waiting for waves. If you notice any signs of pain, tingling, weakness or discomfort in your back, exit the water.

Don't Drop In On Another Surfer

Do your best not to drop in on another surfer, which can be dangerous.

Paddle Out In The Channel

Don’t paddle out in front of somebody riding a wave. Most locations have a “channel” that the waves does not break, which allows you to safely paddle back out to the lineup.

Look Out For Other Surfers

Don’t ditch your board and look out for other surfers. Do your best to keep ahold of your board. It can be dangerous for you and others if it’s getting washed around by the surf.

Wear A Leash

The leash will keep the board next to you so it does not get away.

Right Of Way

The surfer closest to the peak/curl of the wave has the right of way. Take a look on your inside shoulder to make sure you are closest to the peak.

Know Your Limits

If you’re a beginner, always start at a beginner break. It’s always a good idea to start slow. There are really fun beginner breaks with plenty of sunshine.

Always Share Waves With Aloha

Always share waves with Aloha!

Respect Beach and The Coral

Please don’t touch or stand on the coral. Also, please help keep our beaches clean.
