Yeah as the Stinkbug said.....they always come back.......add Florida in that mix too. Everybody up here(young people) are going to move to Florida......and they are back in no time. "The cost of living is so much cheaper down there..." Yeah, the salaries out there are also "so much" lower. They never equate that into the mix. Well there's big salaries to be had in Cullyfornia, but unless you're special in some ways you probably aren't going to get at 'em.
This California Dream has put visions of golden promises in peoples' heads. That dream died a long time ago. California has the second highest population loss in the country. People are leaving. They came full of hope with untangable dreams and left disappointed. 4 million Californians have moved to Texas in the recent years. Texas !! It's the hot state. Oh America, what a sad condition we have left you in.........
The born and bred Californians don't want you to come. They are sick of it. The rersources have shriviled-up.
If you are going out there and don't care if you sleep in a van and just want to surf........cool.
But if you think you're going to go out there and easily score a b!tchen job, you're sadly mistaken. And please don't tell me your going to be an actor................or one of them sassies on TMZ, kissing that People's Court reporter's arse, and axing celebrities soft questions. You Stuttering John rip-offs.
You'll end up doing gay porn in the San Fernando Valley, slanging rocks on Drew St, or..........or yep, Jacking It In San Diego. Sorry, but I just love that phrase and picturing jacking it and waving at cars on a city street..........fantastic.
And Northern California and Oregon are just horrible. Foggy, windswept, sharky, lonely,
Washington sucks, too. Unmanaged sandbars with lines and lines of whitewater......it rains every day.......the place even made Kurt Cobain kill himself(and he was so happy and full of life)
SO..........YOU ARE ALL STUCK........STUCK HERE IN NEW JERSEY AND NORTH CAROLINA AND FLORIDA.........HA HA HA HA YOU'LL NEVER LEAVE..............You'll die with Stucky's Pecan Log and Philly Scrapple running through your veins.........And once you leave, home is never the same when you come back.....really it never is.....

without a doubt take the opportunity now and expand your horizons. i lived in pacific beach in San Diego when i was out there and live outside of ocean city nj now. i surfed a sh!load more when i lived out there. yeah the summers get small but not as small as it gets here. plus you get some good southswells during the summer to break up those small inconsistent days. plus you can go to blacks and always catch a little something.

once you go black...you want your test results back
In the late 80s, we were chased by a pack of ventura locals because my friend had some neon on his wetsuit (he found the suit and was all he had). He was also a black belt in karate and decided to turn around and get in a stance (which really freaked me out)...they all stopped in their tracks and backed off.
north of santa barbara is completely different...but with it's own set of compromises

No Jersey is way better. That's why it's the surf mecca of the world. All the major brands are in Jersey and all the pros move there.
