    the way i look at is this: 1) i can get way deeper in a hot moist tube on a surfboard than on dry land and 2) the ocean is always there for you, women, not so much

    Waves can't cook or clean.

    +1 to this. Been married 17 years. 3 kids. All surf. Wife is a yoga instructor and she is a helluva cook. Getting married should NOT affect surf time. A good woman will understand that her man has other passions outside of her vaginal area. But all you guys talking bout sex not being as good as surfing must not know how to lay proper pipe. When you get down to it they are the same thing. You must block out distractions to get those few moments of bliss in both surfing and sex. Search for that good woman like you search for good waves. Don't compromise either!
    Dawn Patrol SUP, Good luck and congrats. if you surf Marias, tell Nego that the Earl of Funk says hi.

    but i can cook and clean haha. i don't know. call it laziness or whatever you want. i just don't really want that responsibility. i like being by myself. don't really need anyone else to make me happy or "complete" me or whatever that nonsense means.

If she's a good woman, she'll support you in whatever it is that you LOVE to do, otherwise it won't work out, and you'll either stop surfing to please her, or you'll constantly be pissing her off with your LOVE for something NOT her. My two cents...
    Congratulations!
    I'm getting married in April to a woman who sounds pretty similar... I think we both got pretty lucky.

    It's not getting married that cuts into surf time as long as you pick the right partner. It's the kids. Right from waiting for the due date it gets dicey. When they're babies someone said "it's all about making deals" not so different from when you had to switch shifts or make a deal with someone at work so you could surf.

    But then as the kids get older, it gets easier. Now my oldest is 14, and I'm making deals with him, I'll take you fishing if you cut the lawn so I can surf...

    My wife and kids love the beach, so beach days and vacations with waves work for all of us.

    Too true. I was once engaged and she viewed surfing as "the other woman." It created some serious animosity and that, among a myriad of other reasons led to the demise of the relationship. I can recall a trip to the beach in August of 2010 where we really got in to it. We went to the beach and there was some picture perfect hurricane swell out in the water. She got legit angry with me for surfing and not just sitting on the beach and hangin with her.

    Sorry hun, when it's 5 feet, perfect and glassy, you're just going to have to deal with me surfing, a lot, for a long time. Long story short, I'll take the single life, or a girl who loves surfing too, or a girl who just understands that I gotta be me and deals with me accordingly. Maybe I need to find a chick who's way in to photography and likes snapping photos of me kooking it up.
