i am a auto collision repair tech, i work 8-5 and make a good living doing what i like to do, i work about 15 minutes inland so i get to the beach pretty quick, also helps with my shapeing skills, just got into shaping and glassing surfboards, makes surfing even more enjoyeable when riding one of ur own hand shaped boards.
Millersville University (PA) has one of the best reputations in the US for it meteorology program. They also have a physical oceanography program that is up and coming. I'm doing the due degree program of both meteorology and physical oceanography and even though the beach is around 2.5-3 hours away, the programs quality is worth the drive. My friend and I have actually started a club that gathers surfers and other ocean lover alike. With some funding through the school, we take trips to the beach as often as possible. You should give us a look.
that is great to hear. i cant believe someone else found a program doing axactly what i want to do. physical oceanography and atmospheric science. thank you. my guidance counselor couldnt help me more.
I am a musician in the Baltimore/DC area. I write music for tv, radio, film , and games. I have a pretty sweet job -- its full time with benefits (very important cause i'm also type 1 diabetic).
Of course, the drawback is that I have to be near baltimore/DC so I can only get to the beach on weekends, which isn't nearly as often as I'd like cause I also play gigs on weekends. What usually ends up happening is I have to plan far in advance when I'll go to the beach and just hope the waves cooperate.
IT Manger for a medium sized family owned business. I have pretty much retired from surfing. I just don't have the time. My kids are 10 and 12 and heavily involved in sports. I'd rather go watch them play than surf.
Patent Examiner at the US Patent & Trademark Office (the PTO, which my gf says must stand for Paid Time Off). Work in VA, surf MD/DE weekends but flexible during week. Between annual leave and comp time get about 5 weeks paid TO a year to travel. Moving to telecommuting full time in the next few years and can live basically anywhere in the US. Its a pretty sweet gig.
I'm a student at a little college in Mass, WNEC. Far from the beach and I'm real busy with it. For jobs, well I work at the beach in the summer, and do other odd jobs. Like right now I'm grading for a teacher I had last year which is really easy cause I had a 100 in the class. Other than that I don't really have any free time cause the rest is spent working on my car...
Thank god someone else admitted to being an attorney - me too. (Everyone hates attorneys until you need one.) Monmouth County, Jerz. Hit early DP sessions. Throw the board in the car and check waves on my way back from court and do some surf lunches. Like everyone, squeeze it in when you can.
