Zach is originally from Florida. He now sells Sunrise Shells in Hawaii. They were hard to find but he was a hustler. He hustled to surf and he insisted that he wanted to learn how to dive down and find the shells that were once gold to Hawaiian royalty.
In time, the locals taught him. How to read the ocean. What to look for underneath it. Where to look. And he surfed. And he hustled. And now, he makes a meager living in Hawaii, surfing and selling shells.
He's not a millionaire. It's not easy but it's easier than it was. He left Florida to find surf. Turns out, like the other man I talked to, he found the surf and a bit more.
What if he hadn't left?
