SUP Surfing Hawaii Rules from a Hawaii Real Estate Agent


So we’re here with mr. Zane Schweitzer himself yeah hi guys I know that’s luck would have it I ran into him to line up so my question I had for Zane was what’s the number one piece of advice that he would give summers that are coming here to surf in Hawaii that maybe aren’t familiar with the waters ya know it’s a great question and I’m stoked you’re asking it you know especially at a place like this it’s close to the heart for me is for my first waves we’re cat for thought as a young child and oh yeah line poker most Maui kids come to learn at a place like this so it’s important when no matter what crap you’re on surf or stand-up paddle is to be able to of course respect the line up and just because we can be catching waves further out and more often take the time to mix in with with the line up and not go too far out and be taking too many ways they’re sharing it’s always something that’s so important you know Duke Kahanamoku once said you know don’t don’t catch this one let it go by and that’s kind of a famous quote we had and it’s always stuck with me is respectful yes there you know to be able to you know if wait stop even if away it’s coming right to you and you can totally catch it no your honor a young kid to catch it at the end of the day whether we like it or not and so I always like to tell my friends pros even as well you know like be extra patient have extra etiquette you know this isn’t this is a place where people go on first impressions very strongly and you could do this your respect in the lineup very quick and so it’s important to you know the extra polite when we have a pal and especially hey thank you so much be happy to have a great day yeah enjoy you guys hello huh my name is Eric West hi about to catch away things that will really make a big difference as far as not getting your ass picked up out of the lineup engagement very first rule we’re about to hit a line up in Hawaii on your subsurface is you got to make sure it’s a break where they allow people to sup and how do you figure that out the best thing to do is to ask somebody but there are certain breaks where sups are not allowed under any circumstances by the way if I had any value please smash that like button it’s the way YouTube takes care of us okay rule number two kind of goes without saying but I have to say it don’t serve sub surf at a break that’s beyond your personal abilities period rule number three does respect the lineup does that mean respect the lineup that means when you get out there don’t just take the first wave that comes your way you go out there you size up the situation you let a few waves pass before you even think about jumping on your way till number four whoa I do not shoulder hop or snake that means if you’re gonna catch away you take it from the peach peak has the priority do not shoulder hop do not snake which means you don’t hop on the way when somebody else has already caught the Pete hope that makes sense rule number five if you get called out and line up for breaking one of the rules or for doing something that another local surfer finds inappropriate your best bet is to be humble to be respectful to acknowledge don’t do it again and consider leaving that break alright tip number six for surfing ass up in Hawaii just check your equipment I’ve seen this happen before leashes break because they weren’t properly tied on or there was a frayed edge check your equipment to make sure that it is in proper working order alright number seven if you get whistled off a wave that’s typically how they do it here you just basically just whistling somewhere my recommendation is get off that wave as fast as you can simply pop up over the top of the wave kick out wait for the next one that means you probably shoulder hop or snake somebody and they’re politely letting you know get off my wave number eight if you do end up talking to somebody in the lineup I would not throw down any kind of pigeon if you’ve learned some on maybe Andy boomba ties you know daily pigeon or something like that I don’t even know if I’d throw like a bra out there I would just simply stick to your native tongue be true to yourself but don’t get yourself in a deeper hole by all the sudden speaking a language that you know nothing about and will probably just defend them tip number ten this is a big one when you finally decide to take that wave and you’re at the peak and it’s your weight you command that wave and you take it no questions asked you go and then you absolutely ride that wave the best that you can because they are watching to see if you can rip at all if you have any ability if you get done with that wave and someone says do you hey buddy you don’t belong here it’s time to and also if you turn on a wave you better commit to taking it because basically when you turn on a wave that means that they’re not going to take that wave and if you waste it because you can’t make it then that’s not going to make anybody happy so if you turn on a wave you make that wave and you rip on as hard as you can and that will start the process getting some respect my name is Eric West and my passion is stand-up paddleboard surfing I’ve actually been doing it every day for about the last seven and a half years here in Hawaii and I just like to share with you everything that I’ve that I’ve learned in hopes of helping you accelerate your learning if someone you know is looking to buy or sell real estate in the state of Hawaii send them my way I promise I’ll show it to them through the paradise glasses my website Hawaii
