What is a kook? What should you do to avoid being called a kook? Here’s a to-don’t list for those who want to look cool.
Surf culture can be merciless. And someone who pretends to be a surfer will certainly be called a kook. Surf kooks are everywhere – carrying surfboards inside the mall, exercising muscles on the boardwalk, and driving the highway with the board through the side of a car.
However, “kookism” has nothing to do with learning how to surf. A novice surfer doesn’t necessarily need to live through the kook phase. You’re “allowed” to make mistakes and wipeout. That’s life; no worries.
