    I didn't bother to read all the comments so far......but here's my two cents worth........GO TO SCHOOL! Prepare your life for more and better surfing. Learn everything you can in school....now.....while you still can. Surf before, surf after, but whatever you do don't skip school.

    What you do now will help determine your future.....want to flip burgers and live out of your van (which there is nothing wrong with that) and never see a day of paid vacation time (something very wrong with that)?.....skip school.

    Also when asking this question, you should consider the sources. I am the GM of a business, I get 3 to 4 weeks paid vacation a year, I own my house and car........and many boards......Most of the time I get to surf whenever I want.....I am in my mid thirties and I didn't skip school.....(actually wish I would have gone longer.)

    I think most people who ask these questions have already made their decision, they are just seeking validation from others who may possibly be more experienced than them. But I agree, you gotta make your own decisions.

    Go. No question, unless they are testing you for 100% of your grade tomorrow, go. You wont remember the class or the missed attendance tally, but youll damn straight remember the swell

    Make damn sure your house is in order before you turn your back on any commitment, start your own business so other people work for you and surf anytime you want.<br /><br />
    Give me your decision
    <br /><br />You must not be that committed to going if you have to be told what to do. Don't make a habit of being told what to do. Tell others what needs to be done.

    drop out and surf. seriously. why stay in school? so you can go to a 'good' college and get a 'good' job and spend the best years of your life working most of the time so you'll be rich enough to surf when you want when you're 50? it amazes me that so many people just do what they're 'supposed' to do and never ask why. dream. surf. travel. live. you might be dead tomorrow.
