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...

A social networking tool for travelers to use while voyaging on the cheap. Done alone, in pairs, or in groups, couchsurfing can be done in over 250 countries with more than 2,000,000 couchsurfers worldwide. Popularized by its website, all that's required is to simply create a profile and request or offer a couch. Costs nothing but the memories and experiences are priceless.
Never sleep with your couchsurfing host...especially if he offers you alcohol.
