Chances are your surfing skills plant you in the average category. In terms of the bell curve, you're not in the bottom 20% like the guy running down the sand with his fins in backwards but at the same time you've probably never picked up a national sponsor, even on your best session, like the top 20%.
If I had to guess, I'd say that you mostly stick your takeoffs but still goof the occasional one, know your way around a few turns, can bounce off the lip, hold an edge on something steeper slowing you down enough to maybe get a cover up. Sometimes you've done all of this on one wave.
Being an average surfer isn't a bad thing. I'm sure if you had the time you could excel your ability, but barring a source of free flowing cash to assist you in 'the search' your reality is most likely cut down to one or two surf trips a year and heading down to the local when the opportunity arises - more's the pity but such is life.
