It would seem that surfers are very territorial and seniority decides where you can surf and who can have the best waves. I guess the guys up top were pretty low on the hierarchy.
In our ignorance we were expecting larger waves. The surfers seemed to enjoy themselves, so I guess that is all that matters in the end.
These surfers were using paddles. Isn't that cheating somehow? Hmm...
As always, my kids are very well dressed, in contrast to the inhabitants of the region. I am told that they refuse to acknowledge the cold season. We have upon occasion spotted people in shorts and sandals when it is 39°F (4°C). In Norway, these "brave" people would be called Vikings. I was never a Viking.
My kids are great fans of water and rocks, so as you can see they have plenty to occupy themselves with.
Hang ten, dude!
