Let`s put it this way,if you were in line waiting for tickets,or to get on a ride,and some jerk cuts in front of you,would you be happy? No ! its kind of the same thing with surfing.No one owns the ocean,but unless you show respect,you will get chased out of the water.i Let someone drop in on me once,after that i yell at them,and if it happens again,well its on.
Good surfers will not drop in on each other(unless they are a-holes)
Well, I race sailboats, and while nothing gives me more pleasure than watching some noob run his $60,000 boat aground in unfamiliar waters while trying to sip his margarita behind the wheel, I still end up pulling him off the shoal and answering his questions about the racecourse...
I get cut off all the time, it's a part of competition. Some people who cut me off are less experienced, some are more...but you get over it and on with the race.
