When was the last time you felt truly, totally, radically stoked?

Are you often stoked? Are you easily stoked? Are you one of the most stoke-able people to ever exist on this Earth?

Then dude, did we ever stumble upon the job opportunity for you.

The World Surf League is looking for someone who is “both extremely stoked and leisurely” to be the head of the newly-created Department of Stoke and Leisure.

That’s it. That’s the whole job.

OK, so there are a few more relevant details (like the fact that you’ll be in Hawaii). But I’m not kidding — that’s still sort of the whole job.

(But if this one’s not for you, check out our jobs page on Facebook to find something that is.)

What the Ambassador of Stoke and Leisure Will Do

As the Ambassador of Stoke and Leisure, you’ll be in charge of two “ultra-important” things: being excited about whatever is happening at any given moment and “chillin’ the most.” (Which is just a fancy way of saying stoke and leisure, duh.)

You should probably have (although I guess it’s not required) a long-standing passion for all things surfing, because you’ll need to make the most of an all-access pass at the World Surf League Championship Tour when it lands in Oahu, Hawaii in December.

This means you should be easily excited (or stoked) about pretty much everything in the world of surfing, including acai bowls, palm trees, coral reefs, sunsets, “not working for The Man,” coconuts — all of it should get you stoked.

You should have a general thirst for adventure — and you have to be one of those people who can’t have those adventures without Instagramming every. Single. Thing. You. Do.

You’ll snap pics of everything you see and experience that gets you excited, including waterfalls, cliff jumps, famous people, parties, fruity drinks, volcanoes and the occasional jet ski ride. Then you’ll upload them to the ‘gram, caption ‘em and watch the likes roll in as your ~stoke~ grows.

The listing doesn’t say exactly how much this gig pays, but the whole job sort of reads like a paid Hawaiian vacation — so a paycheck might just feel like an added bonus.

If you think you have what it takes to simultaneously be both the most stoked and the most leisurely and can showcase that on your social media from a hammock on the beach, go here to apply to become the first ever (probably) Ambassador of Stoke and Leisure.

P.S. If I had to give you a definition of this job in layman’s terms, I’d say “you’ll be a hype-man whose job is to document and promote a surfing competition on Instagram by capturing and posting the most scenic, exciting and fun aspects of the ultimate Hawaiian experience.”

But also, if I had to give you a definition of this job in layman’s terms, I’d say this probably isn’t the job for you.
