No offence dude, but if that is the only thing that makes you happy, you need to get out more.
Some people just seem to get hit with the surfing bug harder than others. I think these are the people who like the lifestyle aspects of surfing and enjoy everything to do with surfing and trying to implement it into their lives. Just like some people I know who are like that about football (soccer for all us n.americans). All they think and talk about is footie. I often wonder why they don't get a life outside of footie, then realize that sometimes that is me with surfing. And I think it is alright to submerse yourself into your prefered "sport" lifestyle, as long as it doesn't cause problems with other important things, such as your spouse, kids, dog, way of procuring funds to live, etc.
