This is a funny thread. If you really want to save serious time and get on the water faster, then quit your job and move to the beach.
Or, second best, work remotely and ...... move to the beach.
But working is also great as the contrast and very rewarding in itself (depending on the work, I know), increases the overall "joy and excitement" when you get out, for many
"Living on the beach" is not as great as it sounds, a few can do this but I think most can not
Besides, earning money if you dont have a rich uncle or inherited is necessary for your gear and family
Working as an instructor is the last way I want to "surf" now (been there for quite some years earlier) as you get to ride very little yourself, and often in very restricted areas and no waves, and you have to dress too warm than if you would ride yourself
It is great to "give" something to others, indeed, and this in itself is very good of course - but for getting to surf more, it is not good IMO.
Correct, working remotely works top, only but is, you might be out all alone when it really works max, as everybody else is on work - so not that pleasant either.
If you know a few others who work the same way, it can work just perfect though, true!
