Since you all were so helpful wiht my egg, maybe you can help me here as well.
im sorry this isnt design related, but i need some feedback.
Im graduating college in 6 weeks, and have applied to graduate school, both in long beach california, and los angeles.
Im live in new york now. I want to surf more, we dont get waves often here, and i cant deal with the winters. the trade off is that i can always find waves to my self whenever i want, and will be able to for the rest of my life due to the winter temps.
I feel like when i get older (40…50…) i wont want to surf winters anymore, so ill only be surfing half the year. Although i will have a job enabeling me to travel and surf the whole world (teacher). Should i pack up and leave, headed to the most exploited land in the united states, and possibly the world, for consistent and crowed waves where i can surf my life away? its really rough here when its flat. When there are waves, its flat, then the next morning its head high barrels, and its flat the next day. the barrels are empty. It is possible for swells to last two or three days, but thats almost tops. rarely do they last any longer.
So i figure, i live at home right now rent free, with plenty of time to surf and no waves. i can live in california, pay my own rent and have to balance being a full time student and my own bills, and surf two or three times a week at least in good waves.
its been 2.5 weeks since my last surf, because we havent had anything. There was one day a few days ago with 50 mph gale force off/sideshores, temps in the 20’s and snow…i paddled out and had a few, then went home and praised the west coast.
tell me what you think.
