I am an avid windsurfer who is currently working towards a masters degree
in International Business.  I won't be graduating for another year or so
but am getting started on planning my post-graduate career a.s.a.p.  Since
everyone's advice is:  "work with something you love," I thought that the
windsurfing industry might be the place-especially since it is an
international sport.  I am looking for suggestions, comments, similar
interests, experiences and tidbits about gaining employment in the

comment hits the main list I'll catch it there - TIA.  James Nooney

A more rewarding career might be slamming your head against concrete
blocks for 50 cents an hour.  Get into snowboards and get  yourself a
future with money in it.

I was a snowboard rep from 1988 to 1991, slamming my head for $ 0.50/h
would have been more profitable.  If I could get a shop to buy 6 board
the season I was stoked.  Of course I can still laugh at all the surf
owners who would say,"Why would I want to carry snowboards, I've got m
core winter surfers to carry me through."

I bet those shop owners aren't saying that now!! In 91 I might have said
that too, but it's a whole new ball game in 1996. Really.

If the guy got out of snowboards in '91 he has truly bad timing, or he
worked for Kemper.  The only thing worse would have been if he got into
windsurfing about the same time!
