I'm fortunate in that the Navy base where I work is right on the beach, so I'll go out in the morning, lunch, or right after work - depending surf conditions and workload. The problem seems to be ending the session and getting to or back to work on time. You know: Just one more wave, one more ride. I've raced back to meetings still wet and sandy on more than one occasion.
Also, if you get injured during an unapproved absence and have to miss work, there can be disciplinary or legal issues.

the job I mentioned that I quit, the previous owner gave me the keys so I could come in early to leave early, or stay late after coming in late. (I worked around tides and winds unless it was an all day affair, and always put in OT) I was hands down the best employee and knew the biz inside out. the new boss still wanted me to work OT. if it meant missing surf, and having his top guy miserable, his quote was, " That's life." he was just too stiff in the head, and prob a little jealous of my free spirited joy for life.
I believe everything happens for a reason. after I quit that job I realized I needed to be my own boss. quitting that job was one of the best things I ever did in life. no benefits? so what. I make more money now than if I stayed there with all the pay raises, promotions, etc. I never miss a swell and I have time to travel at length or drop everything and do surgical strikes to PR.

I dunno the best excuse ever used, but I do I know I surf better when I'm supposed to be at work.

The excuse is the easy part. Never lose sight of the goal! Be honest, you are going to want to play this game again.Full attention must be maintained throughout the scheme for your return to the job.
I always wear my rash guard ,a hat, and plenty of sunscreen.
Hard to explain how you got that tan on your "sick day".
