In newquay, there is a big difference between serious surfers and the so-called beach boys. serious surfers are much stronger, thinner and fitter than beach boys.they live to surf and nothing gets in their way.they surf three times a day if possible, in winter and in summer, and they never seem to notice the cold.a typical serious surf is 21 year old flip (nobody knows his real name). he gave up his job in a supermarket in london two years ago and has been in cornwall ever since. flip works as a part time assistant in a surf shop in the morning and as a barman in a hotel at night he has not had a night off for seven weeks but says; i'm not unhappy, because the jobs leave my afternoons free for surfing. i know i haven't got a career but i can't stop surfing. i expect that one day me lifestyle will be impractical and I'll Have to find a full time job but at the moment i'm happy.
