    now accepting unpaid employees, so we can save some bucks. another word for unpaid labor, is “intern”. worse than Wallmart, really. but cool! (?)

  • Center Line

    Please hire someone who can capture and encourage people at Surfer to perpetuate the true spirit of surfing and save it from staying off the original path .

    If only I was still in college. How about just working for free / doing it for fun because I am so passionate. Kind of like an working interview.

  • William Buck

    What about business interns!?

  • Mik

    ok.. ignore my nasty comment above. i’m impressed it wasn’t erased, in the spirit of being open to blogdom smart-asses.

    any foot in the door to the surf industry is a good one, and the opportunity to work inside the doors of an industry literary legend is rad. jump in kids… never know what might happen!!!!
