A surfer can be anyone who would love to sit in the ocean surfing rather than talking to chicks on the beach. Usually surfs because he/she feels free in the water. As far as style goes, its very different. Most "surfers" just wear a t shirt, flip flops or comfortable shoes, and boardshorts. Tends to get put into the hippie genre. Usually listens to calm, beachy music, i.e. reggae, old rock, etc. A common belief is that a surfer smokes marijuana constantly. While we do smoke, its very hard to do dawn patrol after a night of smoking, so we pass. Surfing is better than smoking.
