Education is the foundation for a successful life. But surfing is the foundation of a happy life, and when the surf's up your brain is only on one thing. You're dropping the books and bound for the beach. The sun is out, the wind is up and the board is calling your name. You can learn all that boring stuff later, when you're too old to surf anymore. Hang tough and hang 10, surfer. The waves don't care how you spell.
