If you want to stay back on a single fin, foster a relationship with someone. Develop a programme; come up with some money to pay someone to go through that painful experience of working with you, personally. Because it is a super painful experience, and we don't get paid for our pain. That's why we're not interested in your pain and your aspirations and your disappointments. We're interested in what we're doing and, if that then offers something to someone, well, it's a benefit for surfing."
