Talk to parents and teachers. Develop a written plan with performance benchmarks, and present it to them. It might seem strange. There are many people who have gotten "hall passes" or participated in home-schooling so that they are able to maximize surf time.
Many aspiring and young professional surfers participate in home-schooling to allow time to surf and travel to worldwide locations in search of good quality surfing waves and to attend contests. Being a professional surfer is a terrific goal for anyone with the talent and desire. Being a professional surfer also carries responsibilities. A student who is allowed the privilege of home-schooling in order to further their surfing career is extremely fortunate. A successful professional surfer lives up to all of their responsibilities and takes pride in everything they do.
