My only issue is with this statement. It would be impossible for me not to commit this sin in the tropics with perfect surf going off in front of me. For that reason I told my wife she would be better off going somewhere else and letting me go away with my friends. That way I can really surf and not always be looking back at the beach wondering at what level her pissed off meter was at. I don't think I have been to the beach in 10 years where I sat on the towel or in a chair for more than 15 minutes without getting up and doing something else. To be honest I don't like going to the beach unless there is surf or the rockfish are running.
As long as I don't leave her stranded on the beach by herself for 4 hours straight
