When you drop down on a wave, there is no drug that comes close to the exhilaration of centering your body and letting the negative energy dissipate.
“You are on your own personal high,” says Joe Nuzzo, owner of Suncoast Surf Shop in Treasure Island, Florida. “If you have problems and the world is falling apart, go surfing. At the end of the day, you realize your problems weren’t all that bad. You should just go home and take a nap cause you’re tired.”
His words sound like they could easily be ironed on a T-shirt and perhaps they have. Nuzzo has traveled the world tasting the waves and vibing with amateurs and professionals alike.
