Life is so full of choices. But death isn’t. (We’re all agreed on this).
Before you die, have a good think about which team you’re on (here’s the part where the arguments start). Most of the religions want you on their team (except the Zoroastrians)… but what’ll each one do for your surfing?
Will you surf more or less if you go all god-y? What is the religion of tuberiding? If you it get it wrong, will you languish in eternal flat n’ onshore-ness?
Christians have a claim on their guy, JC, walking on water on the Sea of Galilee two thousand years ago. Same dude also had long hair and a beard, and liked sandals… all sounding kind of surfie so far! Today, Christian surfers are mainly American, or South American. Hobgoods, Richie Collins, Gabby Medina have all famously thanked Jesus for sending them set waves. However. Christians have historically been the chief persecutors of arts of shred, and tried to ban the Hawaiians from surfing in the 18th century. Unrepentant, they tried to ban me from surfing on The Isle of Lewis, Scotland in the 21st century, due to it being a Sunday, but I went anyway. Ha!
