4. Avoid moan­ers and pes­simists

Tracks - - Animal Spirit -

Neg­a­tive peo­ple suck the en­ergy out of the line-up like a down­ward-spi­ral­ing world pool. Don’t let them ruin your leisure time. Surf with mo­ti­vated, sun­shiny hu­mans who make you roar with laugh­ter. Es­pe­cially, if you en­joy ex­plor­ing re­mote desert coasts as much as Harry. “The last few years I’ve been do­ing a lot of trips with Craig An­der­son, Dion Agius and Chip­per Wilson. It’s so cool to see how pas­sion­ate they are. They don’t take it too se­ri­ously but they hunt it so hard when it’s good. That ded­i­ca­tion has re­ally pushed me. I’ve spent some time with Ma­son Ho too. I stayed in a house with Ma­son and Tom Cur­ren and that was such an amaz­ing cou­ple of weeks. Ma­son will look at a tiny lit­tle rock surge and be froth­ing and I won’t even know what he’ll be look­ing at. But he’ll pad­dle out and find a lit­tle rock hop that’s so fun to hit. I love surf­ing novelty waves like that. Es­pe­cially with other guys that are psyched on it.”
