    This.

    Your boss is right. Surfers aren't going to spend 40k on a road vehicle. If I had 40k to blow on just surfing, I'd take boat trips in Indo every year for the next 20 years. That'd be WAY...

    No, it's awesome. It only feels like a curse when the waves are flat, or the winds onshore, or you have some obligation that you ditch to paddle out. Or the other way around.

    Why bother with SanO when Trestles is right there? Sick wave even on a mediocre day. It should be obvious, but try to leave flexibility in which day you surf. Onshores and flatness happen here too....
