    Hawaii

    You dont need to be in the navy to get a great location to surf. I was stationed at Schofield Barracks HI for 4 years surfing north shore and loved it.

    Yeah that is true. Though the chance of getting Schofield are slim and the chances would have been better of being stuck in Ft. Lwood or Sill about a thousand miles away from the ocean. That is pretty sweet though that you were there I have some friends who are there now and love it. What was your mos? Thanks for your service too!

    Good luck Redeacarr!!!!

    Austin, are you Topo? I take it you an Engineer. If you're Topo, you're chances are better than you think.

    US Army Retired (MSG), 23 good years serving a great nation. My field, Topography had/ has a unit in Hawaii- I never had the luck to get stationed there. Right at the end of my career my unit found a reason for me to go TDY. 2 weeks in the Hali Koa in December. Watched the Pipeline Masters, surfed a little at Barber's Point.

    Former Navy stationed on a ship in Hawaii and shore duty in California. Managed to surf all the HI islands, everywhere in Cali from Laguna south, Baja Mexico, Guam, the Philippines, and Japan while active duty. Had my 6'4" board strapped to the pipes hanging over my bunk. If I were to do it all again, I would have joined the Coast Guard, they have better duty stations and less time at sea. Only down side would be their uniforms look gay.

    Thumbs up

    The US Coast Guard has been gracious enough to afford me a stint in Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and kept me close to waves for 13 years, now. Happy Veteran's day to all of you who have and still are serving your country.
