The sweetest thing of all is the answer to that question is a FREE place. No it is not a bar or country club or spa or the library or gym or The Soho House.
Where is it?
In the line-up.
The line-up of people on the outside wave ready to surf.
Not people. MEN.
On ANY given day
at thousands of surf breaks around the world, if you paddle out to the line up (where everyone semi-rests on their surfboard waiting for their turn to ride a wave) you will see a ratio of something like 33 men and maybe one girl or two. MAYBE. If that.
Those odds are better than any health or social club and the bonus is, you get a much better body surfing than from any other health or social activity. Did we mention it is 100% free to get in the ocean? Just like the best things in life still are.
Plus there’s the numerous benefits of being in a large body of water. Being exposed to negative ions has infinite therapeutic results from stress reduction to muscle relaxing. It even cures skin problems and aches or pains. Everyone who has ever spent a day at the beach simply feels good without having to pinpoint why exactly.
When you get out there in the sea, 90% or more of the time, you are the only girl, surrounded by attractive, physically fit men who OBVIOUSLY know how to enjoy life and have spare time (two important traits in a mate.) Many of them are at least somewhat financially free as well, which allows them this leisure time.
If you think, like I used to before I picked up a surfboard, that surfers are slacker punks, guess again. Just go out there even ONCE with a surfboard and I swear on my dearly departed nan that you will form a completely different opinion of who surfers are and what it takes to catch a wave. You will not find more competent, adept, skillful hunters on the planet.
Someone who can catch and ride a wave is successful at whatever they put their focus upon. Hint – excellent providers!
Next, don’t worry if you suck at surfing. This could actually work in your favor as you will have men left and right offering to give you pointers as a perfect icebreaker. Now you have found someone considerate and helpful as well. Easier to weed out than online dating.
Finally, one time I was surfing Costa Rica and met a seasoned surfer, who, after we started talking, offered me a job in helping him ghost write a book. This gave birth to “The Surf Diet” by Chris Mo’e.
So you never know who or what will come from surfing – from a significant other to a new career move.
All we can say is we GUARANTEE the veracity of this title, and we welcome your success stories.
Thank you for reading.
