    I approve this message... except the drop out part, you should finish HS so you can at least afford to buy a board every now and then. As for college, it's not a requirement for being "successful". I went to college but didn't finish, yet, I make more in a year than most with a masters degree and some that have PHD's... not bragging, and money isn't the definition of "success", but it sure does help to have a little bit of it.

    it's not the piece of paper that makes you valuable. If you have a skill, use it to the best of your ability and make money with it, if you have a dream chase it, if you have no clue what you want to do with your life, go to college. The people i've met through the years that got a degree, don't even work in the field they got that degree in. It's one thing if you are going to be a doctor, lawyer, etc., those require a very specific path, but those are the exception to the rule. An overwhelming amount of wealthy people in this country never finished college and some didn't even graduate HS, for what it's worth...

    I teach! I still find a way to surf and go to school. Sure, school may not be for everyone, but as Eddie Aikauonce stated: "There will always be a better wave." Find a way to do both, always.

    I usually surf in the morning and then go for an evening sesh.
    Good Luck.
    That was one rightious dude - God bless him....
