How did you realize you were truly living the salty awesome life of a surfer?
If you’re in love with surfing as much as we are, you probably find yourself in unique scenarios that your non-surfer friends just don’t understand. Is your shower filled with sand? Have you ever canceled plans for epic waves? Has salt water ever dripped out of your nose during a work meeting?
We recently did a fill-in-the-blank on our Instagram to find out how Amigas knew that they were living the life of a surf rat (a salty-haired, surf obsessed human). Enjoy the following compilation of hilarious submissions about the surf life from fellow Amigas.
YOU KNOW YOU’RE A SURF RAT WHEN ____.
“You don’t poop for 4 days because you’re on a surf trip in a van.”
“The last thing you do before going to sleep is check the forecast.”
“You don’t wash your hair because you know you’ll be surfing the next day.”
“Your feet are still sandy when you get to work.”
“You bail on your ‘land friends’ for your ‘ocean friends’ based on the forecast.”
“There is always a perpetual little pile of sand in the shower.”
“You cancel plans with your friends because the waves are pumping.”
