Surf General Rules
Surf General Rules
In the water, not to have problems either with others or with themselves, there are some things and some surf general rules to know.
When you go surfing, especially in a new spot, you do not immediately throw in the water, wait, stop off, look at the situation, it looks like the water entering and leaving the other surfers, looks like they are the waves, their speed, ‘height, and if possible ask for information to people in the area. At this point Currency according to your ability. So if after weighing all these things, you feel ready, do not hesitate, come in. When you get to the line up, try to get familiar with the local surfers, seeing that guys are and maybe exchanging a chat if you see that are available types. Do not throw on the first wave that happens, wait your turn quietly, letting them take the waves and they understand that respect them, after all they surfed there before you. This way you will be in your turn respected and certainly welcome.
If the spot and ‘challenging and you’re not experienced enough looking for somewhere more quiet so as not to risk no reason to hurt you.
When you’re new, just arrivals, by thus always previously.
In general, however, there is a precedence rule:
or the surfer closest to the peak part takes precedence. This and ‘the fundamental rule, so do not paddle when the surfer previously took the wave and is surfing. This would mean dropping. So always look before paddling on a wave, if the side of the peak someone is already surfing or is departing on the same wave. In this case immediately stop paddling or exit from the wave, not only as a matter of fairness, but also because you might hurt. If someone Droppa voluntarily, you can let them out, but it is always best to stay calm.
Who surfs takes precedence over the people who push back on the line up. If you’re coming out of a turn off moving laterally relative to the surfers. Do not you paddle straight into the crowd of surfers, this may be dangerous. If you are right in that area and you can not help it, then try to move as close as possible to the part of the foam, where the wave has already ‘broken leaving the clean side of the rider that rides.
SAFETY IN WATER:
Before entering the water check that your equipment is in good condition: the leash, table, paraffin, and possibly the suit and other accessories.
Also check your body shape, you have to have a good resistance, the muscles well trained and without problems, discreetly trained lungs and review your surfer skills before entering a challenging spot.
When you’re in the water keep your eye on those less talented than you, if you are nearby, for instance if you are making the take off and before you there is’ someone in need not take that wave threatening to fall upon him, there will be other waves. If there is someone in trouble, do not stand in the water to surf your not caring waves, but go out and call rescue. Do not decide to help him in person (unless you are not a trained person to save) you risk ending up yourself with him in danger.
Remember the table, when you can keep it under control, remember that the tip of the board and fins can be dangerous and sharp, and the same table is a heavy object. Similarly if you come centrifuged by a wave is always trying to take cover their heads. When you fall always he tries to cross the wave, and never to finish against the wave itself, which otherwise will blend and slams you against the backdrop.
If you come smoothie, you think only cover your head, and relax the rest of the body, making you drag the wave, and swims to the surface only when you feel that the wave does not pull anymore. In fact swimming as the wave sweeps you, it is useless, and it makes you just wasting oxygen.
If you get kidnapped by a current in a row parallel to the shore until you reach a safe place and without current, but do not swim against the current, or energy waste while remaining in the same spot.
Never go alone into the water, especially if there are dangerous conditions, or if you go to a new spot.
