1. He won’t moan at you for taking beach selfies
The guy will happily stand there shirtless and pose with you. In fact he loves the camera as much as you do - and won't object to you taking hundreds of snaps of him surfing.
2. You can spend forever at the beach
All the sand in the world couldn’t bother him. Happy sunbathing!
3. Hot. Bod
Chasing waves sure does its thing for his physique. Aloha, abs.
4. He likes early mornings
He’ll never be the one pestering you to sleep in. Yeah, he’s chilled out, but when it comes to making the most out of the day he’s on dawn patrol for sure.
5. Did we mention those ARMS
Paddling out again and again does magical things to his biceps and we’re not complaining. Now lift us up like a mermaid.
6. He's patient
All that bobbing about waiting for a wave, jumping on it, and then watching it fizzle out to nothing? It takes a real man to deal with that disappointment and come out on top.
7. His hair
It’s not a stereotype, it’s a proven fact. Surfers have the best hair and when they emerge from the ocean and flick it around like some kind of Greek god, wow oh wow, you better hope your sunglasses cover the perving.
8. Salty kisses
We'll never get bored of those.
9. The way he talks about the sea…also HOT
He lives, breathes, and dreams about the surf, but you won't mind because when he gets talking about the swell and the rips, not to mention sex wax (don’t ask), you can’t help but fall head over heels for his lingo. He knows his stuff and it happens to be a massive turn on.
10. He won't laugh at you
Chances are if you’re dating a surfer you’re gonna need to give it a whirl yourself. But don’t worry, he’ll be there every step of the way. Even if you have to pee in your wetsuit.
11. They're always tanned
Being pasty just isn’t in their vocabulary. They’re basically a walking ad for St. Tropez all year 'round. Swoon.
12. Say goodbye to basic vacations
His life revolves around surfing, which makes Bali and Australia his dream destinations for vacay. Regular trips to the beach? If you know what’s good for you never. Let. Him. Go.
13. He’s easy to shop for
A trip the nearest surf shop and you’re done– he’ll always need something to add to his growing collection. Just make sure you’ve got the garage space.
14. He gets as excited as you when "Drunk In Love" comes on
All together now, 'surfboard, surfboard'.
15. He's adventurous
He'll never turn his nose up at you for suggesting a late night skinny dip. Kinky mofo.
16. He'll be your hero
If he tells you to stay in the whitewater (AKA the safe bit) god damn it stay in the white water. On second thought, if you get tired look who's going to come and save your ass.. help me I'm drowning.
17. He's hardcore
He's not afraid of shark bites and cuts his feet to shreds on the reef without so much as moaning. He's made of strong stuff and we like it.
18. He loves nature
Is there anything sexier than a man who knows how to handle himself in the wild??
19. His heart is HUGE
His idea of a good time? Doing a beach clean with his friends so that birdies and fish can have a plastic-free sea. HOW CAN WE NOT LOVE THIS??
20. You can chill
He doesn't need a crazy life plan, he just needs waves and his woman. #simplepleasuresarethebest
