    Driving at the beach today, I got behind this dude's car and snapped a picture.
    So is he a....?
    1. Bicyclist hater that wants to decapitate riders as he passes them?
    2. Thinks his car might fly since he has now added wings?
    3. Just another Surf Kook from the Valley? ( In the local surf culture, "Kook"means wannabe surfer who does not blend in).
    4. Or is he simply just another idiot?

    Please advise.


    Kook.

    He probably figures he's saving gas by having a front spoiler!

    Ha ha. Actually, the surfboard is pushed thru the rear side windows in the back seat doors. If he wanted to fly it would almost perfect to the center of balance.

    I used to take two boards to the beach with a strap-on carrier & they're cheap. The guy deserves to get a citation from the police.

    You right. You don't see it in this picture, but there were of thousand people riding their bikes today along the coast. Some of the streets are very tight and you get within a foot or two of the cyclist.

  8. #4 Idiot, waiting to get a ticket.

    ...and as it turns out, his cousin is a Home Depot shopper.
    And his girlfriend is asleep in the car while he runs off to buy more string.

    hmm, when it comes to overloading vehicles, I think the Thais have nailed it:

    63b1d940310d8f922eda093ade00889f.
    b9f21fddd842b9da57e890e30f4e813b--transport-thailand.
    002%20Overload%20and%20Police.


    They do a good job of it in India as well:

    I'ved ridden on top of a train in India & the trick is to not let the soot from the stack hit you, or you come off there looking like you rolled in coal.

    see Burn Notice
    Being the Hybrid Civic it has no fold-down seatbacks or pass-through, thanks to the wall of batteries.

    Thus, Dude is forced to ride some other wave.

    Stew, how fast you reckon he'd have to get going to start getting some lift on the front end of that thing ?
