There have been a lot of angry posts from "locals" against non-locals and vice-versa.
So why not give the floor to locals to post up the rules they want non-locals to follow in their line-ups? Also for non-locals, what you noticed or experienced - good or bad - that locals could address on their end.
Let's discuss it so we'll know what locals & non-locals should or should not do in the line-up or in the area in general. This also gives each group a chance to somehow understand the other.

1ST RULE RESPECT THE LOCALS!

Sarper, we all know we should respect the locals. The question is HOW? This thread is giving you the chance & platform to give specific rules that non-locals may not know. Stop being a b!tch & post something worth reading for once.

Bravo Ricky !....at last a constructive thread that isn't just trying to sell us something!!!

Thanks, Pat! Unfortunately, it seems like people are more interested in talking trash about each other in these forums.
At any rate, the thread is here. Any local or non-local who want to start something constructive, this thread won't go anywhere.

One rule that applies only to Ricky is that you shouldn't pose a challenge to a fight online describing when, describing how to find you, what you're going to do and then fag out. If you want to know etiquette, ask someone who actually does have etiquette and then follow on it instead of questioning it.
How was school today Ricky? Did any of the girls bully you today?

respect the locals huh? i love it, love the fact that the whole world is copying what we do in hawaii, indonesians tried to be tough ass with me even though they are 5 foot tall and weight at 150lbs,didn't work out that well for them, now the philipines? my lord my lord, let me tell you OUR visitors rule, mister respect the locals, dont fucking even dream of dropping in on us, just cause you are local! what fucking respect?! i dont think u see us coming to your country and showing you middle finger? what? just cause we come and surf in your country we desrespect you? you for real? or maybe we guys that have been riding for 15-20 years should sit on the beach and applaud and be intimidated by young boys that think they are men? just surf and have fun man, we gonna fight over water?

Niko thinks that where he comes from entitles him to be disrespectful. You're so full of shit man. You think you can go to a foreign country and be the ugly visitor by dictating, criticizing and degrading everything. If that' s how you're going to be, don't visit! You can easily get lost in PI and no one will miss you. Your arrogance is typical of someone from Hawaii who's been raised to think that being from Hawaii demands respect because surfing came from there. Total bullshit! When you come to a foreign country,surfing or not, leave your arrogance at home or you'll be leaving with a really bad experience.In trigger happy PI body size can't stop a bullet. What i'm saying goes beyond surfing. Everyone can be the big man in the lineup but they eventually have to come to shore.

Right on alkeita, if you talk about respect the way niko "The hawaiian Dude crap" talks about, youll be dead meat even before you get in the water, here in P.I where fucking guns are available everywhere would fucking drop you to your knee even if your fucking sgt. slaughter or hulk hogan shit. one bullet in the head does it.
