"There is a culture and a lifestyle with it"
There is a culture and a lifestyle with it because, well basically everybody likes travelling and everybody likes surfing. You can spot somebody who surfs by the clothing they wear. The younger folk tend to have longer hair and things like that. People are wearing surfing equipment, like for example in the North East weíre wearing surfing equipment but itís to keep us warm, surfing wear I should say, so youíre wearing like baggy hooded tops, but itís mainly for warmth up north, waterproof jackets, anything thatís good to check the surf without getting cold. But youíre generally wearing stuff that keeps you warm.
