Here’s a visitor email I received and the advice applies to many:


I’m a 25 year-old South African dude, currently working in Durban as a freelance filmmaker. But both my girlfriend and I are very keen for a change… We’d love to work in Hawaii for a year or as even a few weeks/months if possible, ideally close to the north Shore as I’m a keen surf photographer.

If you’re able to help with any advice/opportunities we’d be most grateful.

Yours in faith
