Summertime! (And it’s time for surfin’)
When it gets warm here along the Texas gulf coast, it’s time to hit the water. Myself, I tend to stick poolside but many of my Lone Star brethren (and sister-en) like to head for the beach, were there is plenty of surfing to be done.
I can’t tell you for certain if the waves off the Texas coast are good enough for surfing, but I am fairly certain they are nothing like California or Hawaii. My surfing interest faded when I was about 12, when I took a sharp smack on the forehead from a beginner board at McFaddin Beach – I decided to become a ho-dad for life.
The closest I came to surfing after that was when I cued up a surf tune on the turntable. So, here are some surfin’ (and car ridin’ down to the beach) tunes. The final song is a Beach Boys ringer from their final (terrible) album, tossed in here just as a goofy foot kinda thing. Or something. (Those last two sentences recycled from last year, kinda like using the remnants of a 2010 bottle of suntan lotion.)
