They were Localizing surf spots way before Me & it was already going strong when I was growing up & I was lucky I worked at the shop & knew a lot of locals. My 2 best friends K.K., Hollngsworth & I were stopped under POP at the Cove by a Big Guy "Craig Preakon" with a baseball bat asking where did we think we were going, then He recognizes my friends as younger brothers of 2 Hot girls He knew few the beach & said OK go ahead, I said I'm with Them really fast & got going! Hahahahah     We had our rides ripped a few times over the years at Oxnard mostly at Scrap Metal & saw other guys cars smashed & trashed.

Ha, another great story. 

Yeah, it's pretty obvious that local bullying has long been ingrained in the surfing culture.  Your sound bites in Dogtown and Z Boys were not only very amusing, but also made the point about "localizing" very clearly. 

When I was at Waikiki many years ago, I rented a longboard and tried to learn how to surf.  The waves were really small but if you could catch one, you could ride it a long time.  I was mainly bobbing around out there and getting sea sick.  Seems like wherever I paddled to, the waves would be breaking somewhere else.  There was only one other surfer out there, who I assume was a local (he acted like it anyway).  He got sick of me sort of getting in his way (not sure how - it's a big bay and nobody else out there) and started to hassle me.  So, here I am at probably the most touristy break in the whole world getting hassled by a "local."  Well, a least he didn't throw anything at me or steal my rental.

I should have had Kunu with me that day.

We get that here as well. Locals queue up on the Point, and you join in behind. They get 4 waves to your 1, if you're lucky.  The top surfers hog it to themselves, and if you're not with the in-crowd, you don't get a look in.

Find another beach is usually what happens.
