Are Surfers Stupid?

Sometimes we hear rumours about the lack of culture and knowledge of surfers. One thing for sure, they are not library mouses, but they travel a lot, and they have the merit of bringing to us a lot of new insights from less popular countries and regions.
And also, lots of surfers are working hard trying to help the local communities, donating goods, rebuilding schools, hospitals and other social infrastructures that support their basic needs.
Knowledge is not only measured in the books. The surfers knowledge and culture, and also their social function, is really measured in the field, with their concrete actions, whenever they travel, whenever they speak talking about the new regions and their problem or virtues.
