There's no shame in being a weekend warrior. There's sometimes disappointment, often jealousy, and rarely total satisfaction...but certainly no shame.
Warrior is right in the name...Those of us who live in the city and have office jobs, other responsibilities, and even other hobbies, fight battles with our own schedules to make time to get to the coast.
We try to remain mentally and physically strong for those precious few hours of Saturday or Sunday paddling. Occasionally we can make it out for a coveted weekday session with less people in the lineup, and if timed well, better waves. But, usually we pick a weekend day and go as long as it doesn't look like it's going to be awful.
Basically, this means that we mostly get mediocre sessions. But, it also means that we get stoked about waves that most surfers don't care about. Being a weekend warrior doesn't give you a chance to get jaded.
Sure, if I had the choice I wouldn't restrict surfing to a weekend endeavor. But when I live closer to the coast again, I'll remember what it was like to only get to surf a couple times per month and I'll have a deeper appreciation for the dawn patrol or after work sessions. Everyone can probably learn a little lesson from us, the weekend warriors.
