I live in the UK
I possess insane levels of bravery and push myself as hard as possible in everything I do in life (I am currently out with a fractured ankle from getting smashed one night recently and stacking it into a curb on the walk home).
UK waters during off-peak season.
each weekend during the winter solidly dancing in clubs, which means I am ultra-fit
I have a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering, so I understand the Thermodynamic laws which govern surfboard design and usage
(and some body armour/bouyancy aids in the near future).

Perhaps you meant to say hydro dynamic laws as thermodynamics laws are based in heat not water? Even so having done a naval architure degree myself i can tell you that the fluid dynamics and hydro dynamics taught at degree level won't help you much with surfboard design let alone big wave tow in surfing.
Good luck, i have a feeling you're going to need it.

My next door neighbour (bit of a petrol head with a collection of V8 Holdens) has got a real snotty Waverunner, and he said I could borrow it, so if you're ever in NZ, I'd be more than happy to have a crack at towing you into a few good ones. I've got a towbar on the 4wd, so no worries to get to Papas, nice spot too, very picturesque.
I reckon it could be a good laugh.
