if you've been in a public place (ie work, mall, restaurant) and you lean forward and unleash a waterfall of saltwater from your nasal cavity.
How about when on top of your girl and the waterfall ensues?
If you have salty eyebrows and lashes at work because you stayed in the water too long
If you have a cache of food at strategic locations in the workplace because you forget to eat
If your car smells like sand and mildew
If sand is caked onto your car seat brackets
If you keep a bucket in your home (cold season) for cleaning the gloves and booties
If you keep a gym bag full of clothes year-round in your car "just in case" something comes up but there might be a swell at some point
If you find an old cache of the aforementioned food in the gym bag well after it should have been consumed/discarded
If you keep a first aid kit in your car
If your pet smells like seawater the day after a bath
If there is wax residue in your car no matter what you do
If you can relate to this thread
If you know the homeless people on the boardwalk by smell
If you step outside and can tell if the wind is offshore or not
If you get stoked the night BEFORE a swell
If your friends think you're weird for getting up before the sun gets up to go surf
-If you get home from "work" and your wife notices your wet hair and salty skin... But you stick to your story. You worked all day.
-If you get back form a very extended lunch break and your boss notices your wet hair and darker skin. Stick to your story. You were at lunch
