Apparently homeschooled surfers are showing up in waves.
Surfing Magazine posted a rolling dialogue on the subject:
Dueling Keyboards: Homeschool
As hundreds of thousands of adolescent students are settling into the first few weeks of the 2013-2014 school year, others kids run rampant in the streets. They eat lunch when they want to eat lunch, study when they want to study and most importantly — at least for this article — surf when they want to surf. They are homeschooled. To a kid, this might mean a rigorous routine of math, science and English or it might mean they never even get a GED. Should exceptional surf talent bother with the tired old school system? Why wait on Superman? Or does homsechooling rob the youth of an essential stepping stone towards becoming a functioning member of society. Chas Smith and Brendan Buckley iron it out.
The conversation seemed a bit tongue-in-cheek. At least I hope it was with catch-phrases such as the opposer who “knew a young man who was homeschooled and his mother breast-fed him until he was like 17.”
