Coach Surfing

compounding Verb
When someone goes from house to house sleeping on people couches. This is frequently done in California.
 
Since surfing is a common practice in California, by metaphor it can be shown that the term resembles the process of jumping from coach to coach. Thus through compounding coach surfing became a usable term.
Etymology : Coach comes from the French meaning "large kind of carriage". and Surfing comes from meaning ride the crest of a wave and making it a gerund.
