Summer’s Here – Let’s Go Surfin’ Now!
Summer begins officially next week (June 20) but here on the Texas gulf coast it’s in full swing already. 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 am not much of a surfer – the waves here in Texas aren’t nearly as good as those in Hawaii or California (so I hear) and I never had a damn surfboard anyway.
Most of the time, the closest I come to surfing is when I cue up a surf tune. 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 year before last, kinda like using the remnants of a 2010 2011 bottle of suntan lotion.)
