    ^ Thought this was great. Mostly due to the 'YOLO' reference. Every tourist beach store slaps a big 'YOLO' on all of their products because that's what all the surfers say - right?

    In all sincerity, the OP should go with his/her instinct. I graduated from college in 2011 & I have been stuck at a desk since. You can't skip work, but you can skip school. Know what's ahead of you and live it up while you still can.

    Word, thanks for the input guys! I'm only in 11th grade and my grades are good currently and I barely miss school. Fug it, I'm ganna enjoy the waves while I can! Honestly surfing is a great way to blow off stress, so I'm ganna take a day to release some negative vibes... If I'm releasing stress, in the long run im actually improving my education because I learn better when I'm free of stress c: see you out there bruhh

    Can't skip work? You're not doing it right!

    Sick days + personal days = surf days

    On the greater topic, it's somewhere in the middle. Should you make a habit out of skipping school when there's decent waves, just cause it's been a while since your last sesh? Probably not, but I might hang on to that day until it's warmer and/or better, or just jump out after school. On the flip side, is it going to kill your future to miss a day here and there to surf all day? Hell no.

    Always gotta hang on to a few days for use during hurricane season. Although come to think of it, I guess if you're in school, that would have meant running through all your sick days in the first two months, which would have made for a pretty remainder of your year

    Who is to say that you're not doing it right? Unless you're a pro, you're not making money when you surf. Surfboards aren't cheap and oceanfront rent is outrageous. For me, it would have to be overhead and glassy (all day) to even qualify for a vacation day. Next time you skip out on work, catch a nice one for me. I'll be staring at the forecast on WBLive.

    OR if you're using paid time off i.e. the aforementioned sick and personal days that would usually go to other uses. Really though, comment was only intended to point that you don't need to "live it up while you still can" - I'm still living the very much not-a-pro-surfer dream and have no plans of stopping! I don't live right on the ocean, or even in a town/city that fronts the ocean, and the current state of my quiver can certainly vouch for the cost of surfboards - doesn't mean you can't take some time (especially sick and/or personal time, which in most cases is paid time that goes to waste if not used) to get out of the office for a day!

    Vacation days, now those get stored and used en mass on surf trips. There's a method to the madness.

    Highball glass

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search

    A highball glass.
    A highball glass, a glass tumbler, contains 8 to 12 fluid ounces (240 to 350 ml).[1][2] It is used to serve highball cocktails and other mixed drinks.

    A highball glass is taller than an Old Fashioned glass, and shorter and wider than a Collins glass.

    I try to make it a point to only skip work/school when the surf is going off. Usually can squeak dp in before my day gets started, or a sunset glass off at the end. Why not just to that, and get drunk as f*ck.

    I will skip for a hurricane anytime. I save my paid time off for those occasions.
