036: The 'Surfers' Relationship to Surfing

surf-couple-sunset-photo1.jpg

Scott and I discuss our relationships to the ocean & surfing, try to define what a surfer is, and if we even want to be be labeled as one. Is surfing an addiction? Can it be a ‘positive addiction’? Is your surfing guilt-free? How important is surfing to you? Has surfing lost it’s ‘cool’? Are you the master of your surfing? Or is surfing the master of you?
