Chyeahh right, brah. Then surfing would be like my "job" or something. No way I could just go out and just surf and have fun if that were the case. You mean they're talking about paying people to surf? Having them call it "work"? Ridiculous. That's like paying people to ride bicycles all day, or skateboards. Ridiculous. This thing is going to be a financial and cultural disaster. Professional surfing? Think about it. That's just dumb.
I have a buddy who mountain bikes for his job pays rent makes a living doing what he loves.
