I dunno. I mean I'm from a surfing area and just about everyone has a go, but not everyone becomes "surfers" if you know what I mean and I think its a bit of a cliche that people assume that everyone does, just because they live in a certain part of the world.
The other thing is, it can be f***ing dangerous!! That guy at Margaret River this week who was eaten by not one, but TWO, sharks
Having said that, I do remember seeing a magazine pic of Lleyton posing with a surfboard, but maybe that was just set up for the magazine.
