Actually its inexperience rather than the weather that causes problems like this. I have surfed for years in conditions much more grueling than yesterday and never had a problem, nor have the dozens of guys I regularly surf with. Problems develop when newbies paddles out into conditions beyond their abilities. They are dangerous both to themselves and everyone else in the water.

I guess you were born expert? Most of the surfers there just watched it happen. She was rather close. I guess you'd be one of them that just watched...
