    Jesus Christ, sorry Wayne, Mr. Swellinfo Guy better start farming younger kids or this website is going to crash in ten years. This is like a middle-aged crisis/nursing home here........

    I was born in 1972.

    Started surfing year round in 1986.

    So, I'm 41.....but I look 34....and mentally I'm aboot 25 - They say you stop maturing when you get chemical. So.....yeah aboot 25.

    I don't have a calculator handy and spent four years in the Southern California School System(two parochial and two public) so I can't figure out how long I have been surfing on waves. A little help, please.......I know my age because my tutor goes over that with me every day.

    Started when I was 16, went nearly every day spring-late fall until I left for college.
    Off and on for the next 6 years, then moved inland and was off completely for another 6.
    Just got back into it two years ago and going year-round. It's been like reuniting with a lost love...arguably better.

    29 years of age and have been surfing since age 22 (so 7 years) sophomore year in college. That Sh*t has been life changing. I feel like I would be some fat, boring regular old joe without it. Oh, I am.

    45 years old - Navy brat so I grew up in the water. Got my first real board at 16, so surfing about 30 years. There were a few lean years in my 20s and 30s, chasing the wrong dream.

    But I got my priorities in order and moved to Folly Beach. Now that I walk to surf I'm logging more water time than ever - easily in the water more than 100 days each year for the past three years, where I used to be lucky to get out once or twice a month...

    Looks like everybody here is on the same page - old is a state of mind.

    57 years young...for 3 more days.

    Surfing since I was 12 (45 years) - OCNJ, Jax FL, OBX, move to socal, back to east coast 22 years between FL, DE, VA, NC.

    Age is but a chronological benchmark. Someone abovestated it well: body's 57 but the mind is 25!
