It took me several years to find the right job near the beach, so don't get discouraged.
And look at all the variables with family close... if your family isn't there, who is going to watch the kids (assuming you have them later) while you surf in the future? A lesson I learned the hard way is that family and close relationships are more important than waves...

My 2 cents. Do it. If you plan to have kids, check out the school districts in the areas you look to make sure their ecceptable in case you plant permanent roots there. It's easy to overlook that when you don't have the kiddies to worry about yet....but you never know when their gonna come :-)
I live near my now aging family (parents/inlaws) and I'm 1hr from the beach....but for a time I lived close enough to hear sets from my bedroom when it was head high or better. I'm happy where I am now, but I'm not sure I would be had I not lived at the beach when it was feasible.
I don't yearn to live at the beach at this point, but it was a damn good experience for me....
