Why Jet Ski Tow-In Surfing Is So Bad, 1 of 3

"Yeah, where's the skill? Where's the training? Where's all the years of working up to be able to do this? Guys who couldn't catch a 2' wave at Trestles if they had to paddle in to one can go out and learn to jet ski and ride waves. Let's go back to the real Ten Commandments of surfing, as bespeaks the principles of waterman-dom: self-reliance, physical strength, knowledge of the ocean, patience, intelligence, respect, peace and quiet, communion with nature. Jet skis break about every rule there." (Excerpt from Dr. Mark Renneker, quote appearing in Surfer's Journal, Summer 2001, pg. 112)
