Are you a waverider?

You are if you:
1. Don't take yourself too seriously.
2. Don't scrabble about on a shortboard when the waves are too small and are too dumb to have some other alternative and more appropriate (maybe longer?) form of water craft.
3. Are stoked to share and call other riders on to a wave.
4. Have a quiver of all sorts of wave riding craft so you can take a smaller less shapely wave at an uncrowded peak.
5. Understand that the first rule of surf etiquette includes "whoever has been waiting longest" as well as closest to the peak.
6. Appreciate that females have the right to surf too.
7. Understand that the best surfer is the one having the most fun!


  1. LOVE this one esp. #s 1, 3 and 7.

  2. What a great post!

    Screw surfing, I wanna be a waverider!

    And I must say, I LOVE watching people ride shortboards in small waves - it just means more for me!! And it's amusing!
