It’s strange to think, but some people don’t get their kicks from messing around. “The prospect of a long day at the beach makes me panic,” the New York art critic Phillip Lopate once wrote, “There is no harder work I can think of than taking myself off to somewhere pleasant, where I am forced to stay for hours and have fun.” Others – and I like to think I’m speaking on behalf of the entire board riding populace here – take a different view, and the idea of zipping around sideways drives some of us to exceedingly delightful (if a touch eccentric) living habits. As the infamous Malibu surfer Miki Dora once said in an interview, “If you’re willing to accept that surfing is a colossal waste of time, then I’m willing to concede I’ve wasted my life.”
