    Can anyone name some good healthy jobs for a surfer girl. I want an education and live a life where I can always support myself but live near the waves. So many of the places with waves are hard and expensive to live.
    What should I do? Costa Rica is great but I cant work here legally. :( unless I wait for a REALLY long time and maybe get residency .... or have a baby heh

    Patagonia in Ventura CA is a great place for a surfer to work. If the waves are up, they surf during work. Water's really cold, though.

    Maybe you should look for something that interests you that's related to the ocean so you have a reason to live there? Marine biologist, coastal engineer, oceanographer, scuba diving instructor. If you're good at it, you could probably find a company that will pay you to live in a cool place and work. If not, these kind of jobs tend to have pretty good pay anyway.

    that's what I was going to suggest...

    It's what I did :)

    I'm a marine science teacher and live on an island with some great waves on the backside of the island.

    haha, don't be any type of engineer (coastal or not)
    you will spend at least 4 years of your life learning really complicated math and science. then you will graduate, never use it again, and wonder why you wasted 4 years of your life studying.
