It is, but there's more to it. At some point, for some people surfing becomes a means of self-expression. This apart from while still including "the buzz." I'm amazed watching Corey Colapinto, all those bearded ozzy chicks et al. Nose perched minimalists, less so. Take a stand for the workin man, get as many tattoos as your sleves allow, drive the biggest godam car you can find... the hair flippers i suspect don't care, they'll just rail-grab a turn around you. "I know there's an answer."
