surfing. the sacred hours and how a happy marriage eliminates them
Those not familiar with the sacred surfing hours might find the information below helpful.
The surfer views his day differently – and in favourable circumstances can turn himself into a time-manager of great skill and one capable of precise scheduling. We are talking about the shortboarder here, the youth. The only generation in town. He’s the one slipping down the side of the house before light, away to the sea that has been murmuring all night. He’ll be back 30 minutes before the school bell.
Sacred hours 4.30 to 7.00.
The wise man holds The Early firm in married life where the weak man succumbs to the perfumed bed with a disappointing enthusiasm. A happy married life exerts an almost unsustainable pressure on those early hours.
She’ll want coffee, or tea – just before you go. She may want the paper, or toast – just before you go. What of course remains unsaid here is that a Morning Glory does not flower before 5.30 am summer EST. That’s about 1.5 surfing hours lost to deep breathing and high expectations.
A wise youth considers an apprenticeship equally with a degree. The ability to plan a working and surfing life life around a
disreputable typical bunch of Northern Beaches builders is harder than missing lectures but it certainly does provide the opportunity to get to know the site tradesmen. Surfers to a man.
You’ll be lucky to get a wave off them.
