suck it up and get a higher education then get a job which allows you flexibility to surf (comp-time, work from home, good pay, generous time off). Its sweet.
exactly, I work 2nd shift so I can hit dawn partol more often , I got weekends off paid hoildays and great time off plus the pay is good too. My job is sweet and I wouldnt trade for a surfing job well maybe if I wanted to open my own surfshop .
All well and good but go find corporate heaven somewhere where you can actually count on waves to complement your precious few hours away from flourescent lighting and cubicles. Delmarva is a poor choice.
It seems the tragedy of surfing is that most places with good waves, at least on the East Coast, offer very few decent jobs, telecommuting notwithstanding.
Lets go down the coast and I'll give you my opinion on the areas
NYC - too cold and too crowded
DE - could be cool but I don't know a lot of jobs but if you're a Dr. or Lawyer, or accountant, I guess you can work anywhere
VA Beach - waves aren't so great but I guess you have the military and could do Govt contracting, but this area is sort of beat and ghetto. Not sure I'd want my kid(s) going to public schools there.
OBX - Live on food stamps and work at Food Lion.
Wilmington - could be alright but not all that consistent for waves. Not sure about jobs but I think there are some things there.
Charleston SC - SC has no waves, but you might get a hurricane or two that could help, think there are some okay jobs around here too. I've heard good things and considered this area myself.
Georgia - next...
Florida - Jax not too consistent but maybe not bad. I haven't been here.
Florida south - You got Del Rey and can surf all year round, not sure how great of jobs there are but there is probably something. Hurricanes are another threat to your real estate but like Tyler Durdan said "you aren't the car you drive."
