NOT AFFLIATED WITH THE SAN ONOFRE SURF/SURFING CLUB
iN THE NAME OF GAWD, what happened to surfing on this once exciting Blog. Get Leo Hetzel back, pronto.Tell those unconcious contributers, schitt or get off the pot. This is not one of "San Onofre's Great Moments"
Ark', you ain't just whistleing Dixie. I gots the feeling they've given up on themselves and spit ot the bit.
Why don't these people realize San Onofre is a volleyball beach too?
That dude below doing the iron cross sure has good balance doesn't he.
If any of you dreamsters who don't have a grant deed showing ownership of San Onofre Beach, and toll road freaks, and preserve the 'dirt road' goons, locate Carin Crawford's "Waves of Transformation" to see how misled you've been. Wake up and smell the sausage1
I isn't sure. What's this blog haveto do with the ocean. You gots okies, arkies, joan the bone. I'm bamboozled.
Joan, I reads Carin's dissertation at CSSD. I never realized how little I know about surfing. Thank you from the bottem of my heart.
"WAVES OF TRANSFORMATION" by Carin CrawfordRelationship between Southern California's geography and its post-World War II development generated cultural expressions not found in the rest of the country. Among the most in teresting is the rise of a uniquely Californian "surf culture." California's geographical situation facing the Pacific--has given it an orientation that has made it, in many ways, uniquely responsive to the cultural impulses of the Pacific rim. During the post-World War II period, surfers carved out a new cultural terrain on the warm beaches of Southern California; influenced by native Ha waiian culture, Southern California surfers developed a distinctly "Californian" language, etiquette, and music. The development of California surf culture fostered a "spiritual community" linked to the presence of the ocean as a system of signifiers that privileges an identity based on surfing over an identity based on working. Put in the terms of bumper sticker vernacular: "Work is for people who don't know how to surf." This new cultural terrain was defined through a com plex set of negotiations between mainstream and "alternative" forces within the Cold War culture of the 1950s. California "surf culture" included notions as diverse as "mythic" Hawaiian origins, and the use of state of the art aerospace techniques and materials. While Southern California raced to complete freeway systems and build new defense plants, surfers adopted a "laid back" way of life that depended on their proximity to the ocean as a source of personal freedom and symbolic identity.
