Signs You Might Be A Soul Surfer

After dabbling in the admittedly terrible Buzzfeed GIF format for ‘Signs You Might Be A Competition Jock’, we thought it was unfair to single out one ‘type’ of rider – so we’ve followed it up with this. MAD HITZ and a million shares here we come. 

The term ‘soul surfer’ gets thrown around a lot these days – but we’ve never actually seen a dictionary definition that tells us what one is. Of course it could just be one of those phrases that people use as a convenient way of bundling other people into one group – but just incase, we’ve put together these signs. If you’re ticking all these boxes, then a soul surfer you may well be…

1. You’re far too down with nature to take a lift up the hill.

2. If Muller had a radio show you’d tune in every day

3. You’d happily spend 4 hours hiking up a mountain for a 10 second run down it

4. …and when it comes to aerials, you spin about as much as a barn door

5. You stay up the hill long enough to watch a deep, emotional sunset over the mountains

6. and you’re waaay into sourcing eco friendly wood.
