How To Celebrate the Best Wave of Your Life If You’re…

A Pro Surfer:
Outward gesture that can be easily trademarked. Do it repeatedly. Adriano has the double-fist triple-claim. Parko has the ten-finger claim. Neco Padaratz claps for himself. Etc.

A Soul Surfer:
Pull off, paddle back out, and say nothing. Later discuss the wave in metaphysical terms.

An Exhibitionist:
Make lewd gestures that should offend anyone in the water. Or just mimic your favorite pro surfer's claim.

Emotionally Insecure:
For the moment, let go of your emotions--laugh, hoot, scream, and make hand gestures. Then spend the rest of your day wishing you hadn't.
