Modern life is a complicated thing. Bound by money to work for a living. This dependance on currency provides us with a life altering dilemma though once you get to the age where you need to look for a job. What are you willing to do to earn money and how much do you want? Surfing’s attitude towards this dilemma has historically been a blunt 2 fingered ‘V’ to the regime. Many surfing documentaries feature countless stories from legends of the sport about only owning one pair of shorts and a Surf T-shirt, living on the beach and being a ‘bum’. Thankfully this phase of surfing’s culture faded out after a few years of beginning.
But it does highlight a point that can still come across today. How much money and material items do we actually need and is it possible to have the lifestyle of a millionaire without the money? As surfers, if we were to stumble upon millions it would probably be spent on getting a few sweet Surf T-shirts, a great pair of boardies, perhaps a new board and then a flight or boat trip to somewhere exotic to ride warm inviting waves. The thing is though there’s nothing really stopping you from having this lifestyle without the millions.
The tourism industry has seen a MASSIVE increase in popularity and business over the past decade. With cheap flights, all inclusive hotels and more and more exotic locations. Many people are spending their hard earned cash on jetting off to sunny places living in their Surf T-shirt and boardies for a week or so and going for dream surfing or watersports trips. Now obviously if you’re in the position where you can afford these fantastic trips then great! But if not, there are other ways in which you can experience the lifestyle.
All inclusive holiday companies need staff, Instructors, car drivers, waitresses, pot washers, etc. This is wear you need to ask yourself a question.
Live the lifestyle in my Surf T-shirt without the money, or sacrifice the lifestyle to have the money and go on holidays?
It is a very tough thing to think about, but just how much are you willing to not have? Would you be happy with a couple of Surf T-shirts, a pair of Boardies and working for the holiday company, or do you need to be the the one on the holiday?
Either one is possible, earn the money to go on EPIC trips, or live on the epic trips but don’t have the money.
