You wouldn't ride Cloudbreak?!?! Really? How do you surf and not dream of surfing a perfect wave?
I understand not surfing it when it's huge, but head to a few feet over head at that wave is as good as it gets.
I get it for Teahupoo. That wave is down right scary. But even chopes on a normal small day looks super fun. It morphs in to a beast when it gets big.

People talk big on the net...but until I see proof you of surfing the pacific island's top spots, you're just a little b*tch, like the rest of us. Pro surfing is a real job...it's not a boring job, but a real job.

I don't think pro surfing is a real job though in the relative sense of the word. I really don't think any professional athelete is a real job honestly. It's a job to them as far as traveling hassles and marketing themselves, but to the rest of the world it's pretty much a fantasy land. When you are surfing the best waves in the world in two man heats not one of those guys is ever complaining after the heats.

Real job = for most people, being miserable doing something you don't necessarily love or even like, but do it because it pays the bills. By this definition pro surfing is not a "real job", BUT, I would give up my "real job" to be a pro surfer any day of the week. They get to do what they LOVE to do every single day, and get paid for it. That to me is REAL, and the way it should be when we consider what a "real job" is.
We are limited by our own thought process, we have been programmed to believe that going to school, getting a "good job" and working for a living is what it's all about, but to those who have been lucky enough or those who have worked hard enough to get paid doing something that they love like surfing have it figured out, not the other way around.
Do you really love programming computers for a living? Do you love digging ditches? Do you love selling that widget? Do you love serving that customer? Do you love your little two week vacation, your 401k, your staff meetings, your annual review, or your 30 minute - 1hr lunch break??? Or would you rather be catching waves and cashing checks? Do you really love clocking in at 8:30am and clocking out at 5:30pm? I know I don't, i'd much prefer to clock in when my toes touch salt water and clock out when they return to the sand....
