Are you a kook?! Check out the /r/Surfing WIKI page! It's full of helpful information and if you ask something covered in it, you may be taunted, hassled, shamed, bullied or given the wrong answer on purpose.
Please, before you ask any questions about your new board, or learning, or etiquette, or whatever, check out the /r/surfing WIKI page.
The whole community worked on it, and it's got a ton of info. Afterwards, if you still have questions, feel free to post.
Be warned, if your self post makes it obvious you didn't read the WIKI, someone may give the wrong advice, on purpose, just to be an asshole.
Questions & Self Promotion
Please read them before you ask questions or link to your own content.
As always, anything goes at /r/surfshops where you can flog surfing's corpse in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
