Is there any good way to communicate to the twin-tip mafia that now hang out at Scarborough/Trigg, the 'right-of-way' rules associated with wave riding?
I.e. rider leaving beach heading out to sea does NOT have right of way, and must yield / go down-wind to avoid riders already on waves heading towards the shore??
Why is this so hard to understand?

"Common sense" is not common. Logic is a skill that only a few people possess.

More often than not things need to be explicitly taught. Tell them to F-off!!!

I thought people leaving the beach have right of way and the show boaters must let them out to enjoy the ocean too.

Suggest you need to refresh yourself on the 'right of way' rules, when it involves actually surfing waves - not mowing the lawn...

If you're not riding the waves, what are you doing in the wave zone?

If you're not wasting all the waves and hogging all the ramps on a surfboard then you should be sending it my good man! & cursing every wave hog that you can boost over

Agree .... totally prefer boosting and yes learn the rules of a tac riding chop and trying to go down wind is not surfing a wave

Just as soon as you get some of the try hards that think because they're on a surfboard they can take the up wind , the down wind or pretty much any right of way that suits their line...
Because you know they're on a surfboard so obviously they have some kind of God given priority

And don't even get me started on the tools that don't even look before launching off the beach when I'm riding my twin tip in a wave as they step on their board and take off from the shore directly in my line

I like that you correctly described it as 'riding my twin tip in a wave' rather than 'surfing'

It's more like 'wallowing on my twin-tip in the wave zone' rather than surfing...

If the wave is sick for boosting off, and the twintip rider is holding excellent speed, then he definitely has right of way. Turn around and get the next one you surf style kook.

Agree with wishy.. if the twin tip is on the wave and going for the boost... give him the gap cause he is gonna land far down wind

If I'm coming in towards the beach on a wave which I've gone out the back and picked up from 500m offshore, there's no ****ing way I'm giving way to some twin-tip kook who's coming at me from the beach.

Basically it's because you are wrong.... The international rules disagree with your stance on this one. " Riders heading out through surf have R.O.W until they gain riding speed and control to avoid wave riders on a defined break "

Exactly what you said ...
If you're a twin-tip rider, coming from the beach and want to launch off a wave, you clearly have already gained riding speed and control, therefore you must give-way/avoid wave riders.
You do not have right of way to cut-off surfers who are already on a wave from out the back.

I thought the goal was to always be "out of control" and therefore I always have right of way whilst doing my kook-slamming 60 foot Cannonballs ?

Are you advocating that people should be boosting when they are not yet in control?
