I am a 26 year old teacher and am considering moving to Hawaii to teach. I am from CT and have every intention of living in New England for the majority of my adult life but I want to experience and learn about a culture/place that is different from where I am from. I do not want to experience Hawaii as a mere tourist for a week or two. I want to immerse myself in a new place (for at least 2 years) and see what Hawaii is all about. I am extremely interested in history (I am a history teacher) and surfing history too! I have never been to Hawaii so i was wondering if any of my fellow Swaylockians, especially those who live or have lived in Hawaii, could give me any tips about where would be a good place for a guy like me to live? Any suggestions for places to consider living, teaching, and learning? I am not much of a city guy so I would prefer to be in a town or small city and I would like to be close to some good surf spots! I am an average surfer so definitely won't be paddling out at any crazy spots when its really big. I definitely want to be in a place that I can experience true Hawaiian culture and especially Hawaiian food haha! I also am interested in continuing to shape and glass boards so if there are any connections that I could make in that department that would be amazing! Any ideas/suggestions would be great and I appreciate all of your insights and input!
