Rules and equipment
If someone was waiting before you for the next wave, he/she will ride it.
Don't take another's wave:
One wave, one surfer. It's so dangerous that there's more than one surfer per wave.
If someone has a wave opposite him/her and it's him/her turn, don't row the inside part of the wave.
Share the waves:
If two surfers are rowing a wave that is going to break by two sides, try to share it.
Keep away from another surfer area:
When you're going into the water, try to row away from the surf area. If it seems like you're going to hit another surfer who's going to ride a wave, don't row the broken part of the wave (wall) 'cause you're in his/her way.
Teach the noobs:
If you see a noob or someone who doesn't know the rules, give him/her some friendly tips.
All the surfers are in the same right to share the waves. Surf haven't got place for prejudices.
Don't became violent:
Never throw your surfboard to someone who has stole your wave. This is a agression, even worst than stole another's wave. Never hit anyone that has stole your wave.
Know your limits:
If you're are a noob, never practise surf with too many people. Look for a place with less people, where you'll ride more waves.
