It makes me sick how divided surfing is, not only on the physical level but on a business level as well. Money runs everything, whether its contests or free surfing, you need it to participate. The fact that most people spend more money buying surf equipment then they spend actually trying to find waves pisses me off. Call yourself a contest surfer, call yourself a free surfer, regardless you are at the mercy of the corporations.
Don’t even get me started on snowboarding and skateboarding.
