I recently saw an article on Surfline that mentioned the best places to live if your a surfer, globally. I got to thinking in the US, where do you think the ideal place to live/surf is? There's obv a bunch of factors to consider (distance from break, consistency of said break, cost of living, taxes, job opportunities, etc.) It would be great to live in the woods and walk to a consistent break, but good luck having finding a "traditional" job. You may also make good money living in Bergen County and have a nice house, but good luck surfing more than once a week and keeping up with the Joneses. Hawaii and California are pretty much off the list just due to the cost of living, but I'd imagine you can carve out a nice piece of turf in a few other EC spots.
