A skilled professional sport; most often taken up by the homeless musician. It may consist of riding the 'ultimate wave' ( prolonged or permanently scored sofa accomidation) or smaller and shorter waves (temporary stays).
These skilled and talented 'couch athletes' sometimes consider getting a job, but usually are back out in the surf within a few weeks thereafter. WARNING: This culture is extremely territorial!
Locals only dude!! Dont snake my wave or I'll smash my guitar over your head...
