yea brah I make less than all my friends peers etc.. but I am definetly the happiest of them all. Have plenty activities I enjoy surfing taking priority 9 months a year the upcoming 3 r the ones I tend to get deeper involved in my other pursuits.. 3 trips a year and on my way to a descent retirement staying healthy and active hope to retire early and then have the ultimate trip..
Kinda tough to Dawn patrol living 3 hrs away huh? guess with all that money you can buy that oh wait no you cant!
Ha ha I have always known I am living the right way for me but post like this really make me feel good about the way I have chosen to live my life. U can have it all just have to decide what is truely important to you.. Took me a little while to fall into my lifestyle but I have been in it for decades now..
Seeing all the miserable f@c@@ at work and around town reassures me I have made good chioces in my pursuit..
Catching those midweek sessions b4 work the last month=priceless
some dude asked last week how long our commute is to beach.
Mine is 3 hours.
So I am a NOMAD1
My wife and i must stay put so we can make over 300k/ year... would you give that up?
In my memeory bank I have about 30 to 40 locations I rotate. I have no choice so I just roll with it. I am a nomadic local (oxymoron - nice!) from Florida to OBX to Cali to Costa to hawaii. I am always going somehwere.
I have never met a local I couldn't ***** slap off his high horse. I m 6'6" and 220 and my balls are bigger than some of these tough locals. I love when one complains and I pull up close and watch the bravery fade to pale fear. You ever hit someone in the face before they finish their threat? That can be very effective.
That hasn't happened in years though because there are miles of surf with nobody in it. I was just in OBX, nags head and duck and I surfed twice daily with not one other person. That federal research pier in Duck rocks. And they weren't sloppy closeouts either. Surfers love to be around other surfers and then complain of crowded conditions.
wow- you totally just blew yourself up.... why would you post that????
its a no brainer- give up the money- it only brings problems... and more problems...
dudes (gruvi lingo)- thats like 6hrs of just DRIVING to surf- wow that stinks... thats almost a whole day that you gotta give up just for a few hours of surf. Wouldn't you rather wake up at the crack of dawn and get a session in before work- and still make it to work in time- and STILL get a session after work before dark??? duhhhh....
I wonder what the locals would do when you get into a fight with them and they find out you live 3hrs away... drop the attitude bro- its not what surfing is about...
