Ummm.... A plague?

Don't get me wrong now, I think everybody should be allowed to have the opportunity to learn to surf or have the choice of making their living from teaching people to do so.
But, it is a bit disconcerting when you see this number of learners out at your local surf break - 19 excluding the red vested instructors and that is just one session on the day!
So, if there are this many here, think how many there are on any given day everywhere around Australia, particularly in the more well known locations such as Byron and Bondi etc! Thousands? Fortunately, it is not any easy sport to learn requiring a considerable amount of effort, application and persistence over a period of time, so those who actually go on to consistently surf are probably few. Whew!
