Everyone needs a surf buddy, someone who gets you amped and fired up to go surfing. Good surf buddies are always planning the next go out. They tell you when you're ripping and bring you back down to earth when you're kooking. And mostly a good surf buddy is someone you can hoot for when they're scoring good waves.
