A Reminder about The Big Three, . Ok guys here’s three really important surf safety tips for all you beginners out there. You must develop mastery of these three basic skills before you move into the main crowd on any break no matter how big or small it may be:

  1. You need to be able to turn your board confidently and accurately while riding a wave to avoid hitting another surfer without falling off.
  2. You need to be able to paddle out while avoiding collisions or ruining another surfer's wave by being able to quickly and accurately, assess the situation. Then make a split second decision to paddle out of the way of an oncoming surfer.
  3. You need to be willing and able to successfully take the hit from the white water, without ever letting go of your board or panicking and paddling in front of an oncoming surfer.

If you cannot honestly tell yourself that you are in possession of these three simple skills, then you have no business paddling into a crowded surf break in the first place. This may sound harsh, but it is not negotiable, it’s not about surfing hierarchy. It is entirely about public safety. Surfers, both resident and visitors alike have a right to feel safe in the water, .
