I believe in paying locals, but some people want lessons from pro's

I paid a local beach-guy here in Ireland to teach me surfing before and I learned very little to improve my skill.
My teachers in Bali were locals and they were no pro, but they sure were better in teaching than the semi-pro guy I paid in Florida.

I could be wrong but it's really starting to feel as if it's a crime to pay to learn how to surf. Or even branded as being lazy not to go through the painful learning experience. But I truly need the help to progress. And I am not lazy as I still have to work hard even with a paid-teacher. I am just an unfortunate person who is not a gifted surfer. Isn't the whole idea for surfing is being able to surf and have good time? Who cares how and what way I chose to reach it? I mean I don't think I am endangering anyone in doing so, am I?
