69-year-old Bruce Gold proves you can quit your job to surf forever

69-year-old Bruce Gold is the type of person who has lived a full life with no regrets. Quitting his job as a policeman in his early 20s to surf the best waves in the world, Gold moved to Jeffreys Bay and has survived as a fixture there ever since.

Initially he found out he could survive by picking up oysters and bartering with them.

If ever there were a case for quitting your job to become a surf hippy, Gold is it.
