They have an easy-going, almost-lazy attitude. Things move slower in the tropics and all the regulars, since they are not motivated by competition, the economics of surfing professionally, or status, surf basically for themselves.”” overlay_color=”white” credits_text=”Photo by Steve Bissell” credits_color=”white” /]
