I don’t know where I first saw this, but it was really funny to me for some reason. It’s a Craigslist Ad placed in Hawaii for someone to do video editing aboard a yacht. Is it funny to you too or just me?

Surf Editor Final Cut HD

This is a live-aboard position on a Yacht. This will be a massive post production editing job done on-board while we travel & film.

You must know Final Cut & be experianced, you must surf, your comfertable being onboard in some huge swell, & your legal to travel.

if this is you please respond,


I guess I just can’t picture someone editing videos in Final Cut – a very precise video-editing software program that requires a lot of concentration and precisely accurate clicks of the mouse… all the while bouncing up and down on 20-30 foot surf probably over by Jaws break in Maui.

Then, the guy/gal says – You MUST SURF. lol – your job is not just to edit and not get sick all over their nice yaht, but, you’ve gotta surf whether you want to or not.
