    one of my friends just decided to become a surfer chick one summer. It was pretty funny. She went to europe specifically to surf, three times so far! Of all the places to go to surf!

    Myself, I'll be in the scorching hot desert for christmas. hooray, I guess!

    Europe? To surf? That IS weird. There are waves but not many good ones in Europe. Nah I'm heading to Costa and Nica, maybe go to the Bocas in Panama too. Then in the spring Jaws and the Hammer and then the south pacific in the summer, maybe Australia for some big wave.

    I have a job, but being a freelancer means between contracts you surf. Work to live, not live to work.

    See Goki's got it. Actually if your really interested in how I afford it its not that complicated. I take my digi camera, laptop and digital voice recorder and write an article and do radio. Usually I make more then I spend on the trip as I own my own surfing gear and have been going to the same surf camps for years so I get good prices. Knowing people and having places to stay also helps a ton, plus when I am in Toronto I live pretty frugally so I can go out and have good times in other places.

    But I don't know a freelance coke dealer might be a fun gig!

    just don't be samplin' too much of yer own wares. heh...
    seriously, i'm sure all of us could show a bit more impulse control and not buy the triple lattes at starf-ucks, or cut back on the $10 lunches, or the brooks saddles that you really need etc. you'd be amazed where you can scrounge up a grand. i totally agree that the key to travelling is crashing at friends' places!! familiarity with where you're travelling to helps with scoping out all the deals. budgeting $3k-5k for a big trip is not as expensive as it sounds. most of us probably spend that or more on equally frivoulous things in a year.

    Too bad statement one is equivalent to statement two.

    I disagree for the block. Workin to secure passports, huts, sun block, and a short gun with tri-fins is workin' to live. Living in Toronto for years slavin away for the school loan, then the car, then the marriage, and then the house, etc etc is workin to live.

    I think Offhoff is a Ford Prefect of the skate/surf world and having been a disciple of that world for many many years, I'll almost call him a personal hero, as being jealous is bad Karma. Going to the Philippines in Dec. '07, what Islands to hit there? I'll be in the Provinces.

    Bah marriage. The ROI on children is like -1 to -2M dollars. Kids don't make financial sense at all.

    being a kid....you'd know.....
    The rewards are beyond monetary, and they can pay to keep you alive when you are toothless and drooling lest you spend the last of your years scraping dog food tins.

    With all the romance you displayed in THAT post, you have no worries.
    Honestly, when I was your age, the same thing totally, fell in love and it all changed.
    Last night was 15 years ago we met at a halloween party, and basically haven't been apart since.
