A couple of useful careers where you can
make decent money and can also bunk off when the wind is up (particularly if you're self employed) are:
- gardener / tree surgeon
- builder / handyman
I know a few good IT contractors that never work more than 8 months a year...always paying the bills and giving them 4 months to do what they want.
I also have a mate who erects cranes...where they don't work when it is windy. That seems to work well with kite surfing...though I think you have to be wired a particular way to do high work like that.
We've also got postal worker (kick off early), police / fire / ambulance service (shift patterns that work well with kiting).
There's also more artistic careers like photography, film making, or journalism / media that could work.
And...there are kite designers, board shapers, and other product designers working directly in the industry.... Where you'd hope they actually use the stuff they make.
And...there's the independently wealthy who have too much time and money anyway...
