Every golf scorecard has a map of the course on the back. Moving the hole placement is a big deal, accompanied by meetings and oversight. A big shift is whether or not it rained last week.
On the other hand, every wave is the first and last of its kind. It has never happened before and will never happen again.
Golf is an endless asymptotic journey toward elusive perfection.
Surfing, on the other hand, is about wayfinding. A surf park with a repeated wave might be useful for training, but it’s not surfing.
Metaphor over, the question is: what’s your job like?
It gets a lot easier if you bring the appropriate mindset. It’s hard to surf with a putter.
