“During the drive, Andre told me about his divorce. I was surprised he'd been married, he was so young. He and his wife had split up, he said, over surfing of course. Chicks had to realize, he said, that when they married a surfer, they married surfing. They had to either adapt or split. ‘It's like if you or I hooked up with a fanatical shopper,’ he said, ‘I mean a total fanatic. You'd have to accept that your entire life would be traveling around to malls, or really, more like waiting for malls to open.’ I could see how his marriage might have crashed.”
