    If you could no longer surf - had to move away to landlocked location, just got tired of it (heaven forbid), or whatever - what activity would you replace it with?
    For me, assuming I still had access to at least fresh water, it would be kayaking/canoeing, hiking and/or x-country skiing.

    Back to music, for myself, not for public playing. I still play some, but not frequently enough.

    When I first moved from SoCal to Colorado, I skied like a demon.

    Didn't work.

    Love skiing, but it couldn't replace surfing personally.

    Mountain Bike, hunt, and fish. Occasionally kayak. Go full on Unabomber. Live in a shack in upstate Pa and plan the world's doom.

    The three things I can't live without are surfing, hiking and music. I don't play so that leaves lots of hiking. I'd have to live in the mountains so definitely snowboarding and kayaking too. For something non-physical I'd have to get way more serious about photography. Oh, and definitely cultivating as mentioned above.

    Running. I run a lot now, but maybe I would pick up trail running and biking.

    Hard to say... but I'll cross that bridge someday, and figure it out then.

    Idk... really would I need to replace it with anything? I mean- Could anything actually replace surfing?

    I guess I would just get a little more serious about my shop and wood working or something, since I would have more time and more room in the basement and all with out all them surfboards and wetsuite laying around

    Before I started surfing 5 1/2 years ago, I had gotten into martial arts. I'd might go back to that, but at age 62-plus, it would probably be tai chi...Anyone do that here?

    Music too maybe. Pick up the banjo again. Played the old claw hammer style.
    Now, if I'm not surfing, I'm running...building back up to a half marathon.

    Interesting thought XX. I would, as I have always done, be engaged with Nature. Some how some way I would enjoy what we have.

    I love the outdoors. Fishing/hunting/gardening for sustainability.

    Not interested in skating or snowboarding anymore.

    Mountain biking is probably my closest alternative.

    Focus more on my second passion and play soccer more. Probably join some rec leagues, that usually play on weekend mornings (times I'm usually in the water). Swim and skate, stay in shape in case I am fortunate enough to go on vacation to back the coast

    I've thought about it for a while and wanted to just try putting surfing on the back burner for a couple of years and focus on other aspects of my life and see what happens, but then a decent swell comes and that idea goes out the window.
