Locals, Regulars and Visitors – Determine Your Status

We started off this series on surf etiquette by determining that surfers hate rules. Please, no shackles. To establish any set of rules, with any continuity, throughout global coastlines, well, let’s just say we fight an uphill battle. To further the problematic nature of rules, surfing etiquette is organic. It changes with time and with […]

What do Madonna, Whoopi Goldberg, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Adrian “Ace” Buchan have in common? They’re all celebrities to varying degrees, and they all can claim authorship to a children’s book.
