I drive long distances to be alone.
When I surf, I do not like being watched.
There are others who, if you don’t make your waves, or surf poorly, who will paddle around you and take all of the best waves. They at times, when in packs, can make it such that I don’t get any waves at all.
This ruthless reality is daunting.
