Vagabond part of surfing

Sneaking around family to go surfing Vagabond part of surfing How he began surfing

Transcripts available in the following languages:

The vagabond part of surfing is pretty much gone. I think that was the most fun. Being able to work wherever you wanted to. Make as much money as you think you needed, and then take off for the next town, or go up the Coast or something, and with the money you have, and just hang out ‘til it started running out, and go find a surfboard shop that you can go work at for two, three days and keep going. That was a lot of fun.
