Want to chill in Hawaii and get paid to do it? Well, good news—you can!
Believe it or not, the World Surf League is looking for someone who is “both extremely stoked and leisurely” to head the newly-created Department of Stoke and Leisure.
If you just rolled your eyes because you’re assuming that this is a joke, we totally understand.
But this is real—a real job! And being a chill, laid-back person is truly one of the main qualifications you need to snag this awesome position (aside from living in Hawaii).
What To Do As the Ambassador of Stoke and Leisure
As the Ambassador of Stoke and Leisure, you’ll be expected to be outwardly excited about all things related to the World Surf league in Hawaii.
To excel at this role, you should absolutely have a passion for surfing, watching other surfers compete, and talking about surfing.
Armed with an all-access pass at the World Surf League Championship Tour when it hits Oahu in December, you’ll basically be expected to act as an ambassador for all things related to the stereotypical surfer lifestyle—the beach, acai bowls, coconuts, coral reefs, palm trees, and relaxing.
Most importantly, you should be a social media wizard because you will literally be Instagramming every single thing you do.
Seriously, the job entails that you make your lifestyle look as fun, exciting, and relaxing as possible—just like any other ambassador would be expected to do.
This role apparently lasts about six weeks, but the listing online doesn’t actually say how much you’ll be compensated.
With that said, this is such a great deal that anything you get in addition to this all-expenses-paid vacation will seem like icing on top of the cake.
Requirements Before Applying
- Stoked. You are required to be stoked about life, surfing, palm trees, açai bowls, pro surfers, coral reefs, crystal clear water, not working for The Man, mind-blowing sunsets, the occasional coconut, and more. If none of those things elicit stoke in you, then you need not apply.
- Ability to maximize use of all-access pass at highly-attended event. If you enjoy being a fly on a really, really, REALLY cool wall, you’re gonna love this thing.
- Skilled at ‘gramming. We are going to load your Like cannon big time, but it is you who must light the fuse. Waterfalls. Parties. Cliff Jumps. Famous people. Hammocks. Lava. FRUITY DRINKS. Jet ski rides to places you didn’t even know you wanted to go. Brace yourself for plenty of comments along the lines of “I hate you,” sent from within the confines of cubicle walls.
- Energy. You’re about to do a bunch of stuff. Unbelievable stuff. You’ll want to amaze your friends, family, grandkids, people you’ve just met, and total strangers with one knockout highlight reel of The Whole Thing. Six weeks in three minutes. We’ll hook you up with lots of hi-res footage, music, and a world-class editor-guru, but the main ingredient will be your experiences. So nap on the plane, hit the ground running, and don’t stop ’til December 20.
